Chokydenko carreer in a nutshell.
Actually, this was like watching an american horror movie, you know how it will end but you still watch it.

Great match !!

it was so nice to see one of these matches back

Hope Kolya keeps the confidence he had in final two matches, hope it will be a turnaround

Kolya would have won that final with that kind of performance, he has tough draw in Marseille - probably will make only R2, really shame he didn´t make more point here in 500 Rotterdam, he easily could have won this event and 500 points are pretty good boost for guy like him- also for his confidence

It was brilliant to see the Fed'eration reigning supreme in Rotterdam last night. Can't wait for Dubai now. Djok facing the Fed'eration in Final would be oh-so-awesome!

Good win for Fed - this is the kind of match he's been losing in recent years. Good to hear Davydenko played well.

The key to his victory on the very next day.

Yes, he did. As much as Fed was pretty awful especially in the first two sets (and I really think he should actually have lost this match in straights ), much of that had to do with his opponent doing very well just the same.
Hopefully Davydenko will be able to build upon this very decent result in his upcoming tournaments.

He played great indeed

Very quick (I was not sure he was still able to be that quick), going for his shots, very few unforced errors until the end of second set : at that moment he had a problem with his knee and made a few unforced errors (but nothing like when he really loses his game, including against Fed at Aus open 2010, it was only a few unforced errors) until the beginning of third set ... but he went back with a lot of motivation and quickness after saving multiple break points in the beginning of the third.

I never saw Federer playing awful in that match, but he needed time to raise to Davydenko's level (what was great there is that it showed that still he had great desire for the game). And even if Davydenko went from 4-4 to 6-4 3-1 these games were tight.

I knew that with some confidence Davydenko could still play very well but I'm mostly surprised by how quick he moved in that match : against Gasquet he made great shots but he had more time to prepare his shots, I was not sure he could still play with that unbelievable rhythm, I thought he had lost a part of his movement.

As for the confidence clearly he had no fear at all going for his shots in this match : that's what should give him the best feelings.
