WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Very interesting match

Davydenko leads 3-1, 3 wins on hard indoors in 2 sets (Bercy 2007 + WTF 2008 and WTF 2009 final)

Del Potro also won easily once, on clay in Davis cup semifinal in 2008

If Davydenko can play very quick, Del Potro doesn't like it.

Judging by their level last week, I'm eager to watch that

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Such a horrible draw for both my favourites
Juan Martin deserves a title but I feel Nikolay needs a good run here more to truly get on that return track, he needs to back up that Rotterdam run.
I dont know how the court plays but if Kolya plays anything like the Rotterdam semi against Roger (and if he isnt bothered by that knee), I can see Playstation Denko taking this. Kolya in good form is a nightmare matchup for Delpotro. He will move him around like no tomorrow.

Come on, Kolya. You can do this. Hold on to the form you showed last week.

Looks like Kolya also brought the Playstation in Marseille. It should be a fun match to watch.

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Davy is going to win this, he has exactly the game that Delpo doesn´t like, look what Fed did with him and was serving like crap-so even good serving Kolya is like crap serving Roger but in rallies it will be the same - instead of too much variety this time Delpo will be bothered by too quick game, left-right, no errors, Delpo´s timing will be pretty bad, he will go for winners, because Kolya will play quick and moving him from one corner to another, i expect a lot of UE from Delpo and really only his serve can save him here, but i still expect DAvydenko to win this

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Playstation tennis for the win, unless there's appearance fee money circling the drain.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Interesting match indeed!
If Kolya indeed manages to hang on to his level and style of play of last week, he surely has a good chance to win this. However much I appreciate Del Potro as well, here's rooting for Denko. DAVAI!

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Well I'm rooting for Delpo but I don't mind too much if Denko wins this as it's nice to see him recovering some of his late '09/early '10 form. Definitely a nightmare match-up for Ponyboy, but I believe he will be motivated by the thought of revenge and will want to continue his momentum from last week as well. Vamos!

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Kolya indeed can cause Delpo in trouble, but I don't think he can win this. Maybe first for him then two for Del Potro.

Juan Martin in 3, something like 6-7 6-3 6-4.

Re: WWW Marseille R2 : Del Potro vs Davydenko

Davydenko almost beat his least favorite top player on HC last week. This week, he has his 2nd favorite instead.
