A couple of good things here:
Feds 'winning ugly', which he sometimes doesn't bother to do (Tankerer). Note: Fed's 'winning ugly' is still better to watch than most grinders.
Davy playing really quite well actually, apart from a few obvious facepalm moments and a certain amount of choking.
He was actually really clutch on a lot of break points, saving something like 10 of 13, but no one will remember that
Hope he has a good season, although there won't be many more quasi-fast indoor courts like this where he can play his best.
Mr. Federer surely will remember. The first set was clearly ugly from Federer. The second and third, no.
After the first set, it was the best match of the tournament and both men were brave - Davydenko played superbly and with courage to save multiple break points in the multiple games in the 3rd set - there was no choke from Mr. Federer there. Mr. Federer served and played extremely well to save break points on his serve, especially when down 3-4 and love-40 in the third. Davydenko had 1 tight netted backhand in that game, but it was a single shot out of making many more under more pressure on his own serve. I don't call that a choke. For those that do, shame on you. Davydenko should be applauded for his overall bravery, not ridiculed.
