Nope. Even if Davydenko loses and the final is Ljubicic v Gaudio, Nikolay will qualify. Here's the math:
Davydenko 393 + 25 = 418 pts
Ljubicic 346 + 100 = 446 pts
Gaudio 345 + 70 = 415 pts
Gaudio 345 + 100 = 445 pts
Ljubicic 346 + 70 = 416 pts
In either case, at least one of them will not catch Nikolay so he's guaranteed to finish in the top 8.
