Great win for Davydenko !
The public sounded happy as they could feel how important it was for him.
I always said his game was still there, he's a little bit slower but most of all, it's a problem of confidence he's had for 2 years.
Also it's good for him because it will secure his place in clay masters 1000 tournaments and last year, he said that he would stop his carreer when he could not enter masters 1000 tournaments, then it's important for him.
Unfortunately he has to meet Fed now, and usually he's the player who's the hardest for his confidence.
This confidence may not still be there back enough for tomorrow. It was not yet the best Davydenko.
But anyway he will be happy.
Gasquet played quite well but he made few errors which cost him at bad moments and most of all he relied too much on a tactics which did work when Davydenko lacked confidence.
