We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.

Re: RG r1: Davydenko def Gremelmayr 7-6 6-1 6-3
Davydenko played pretty well. A little patchy, but pretty well. He served well, and he came to the net quite a bit and played aggressively for the most part. He hit some great angles throughout the match and he was standing closer to the baseline than he has been. Gremelmayr didn't play that badly, but he wasn't consistent enough and couldn't hit through or past Davydenko.
Overall, Nikolay was fine, but I still can definitely see him losing to Cuevas should they play, if he doesn't cut out some of the patchiness.
