Will Davydenko lose his clown status if he beats Federer?

Or will he still be "the 2nd invisible man"?

well, he's already pushed him (Australian Open QF)

How can a guy who's in Top 10 and won 3 tournaments this year (so far) have a clown status?

If he defeats Federer, he'll shut everyone who's thinking he's not Top 10 material. He is. It's not his fault that Top 10 level dropped since the mid 90's

I remember the 1980 final against Borg when McEnroe saved 5 match points in the 4th set tie-break. Most players would have reacted or gone nuts. Borg showed no emotions and continued playing as if nothing had happend; no thrown rackets, no screams, no demonstation of irritation. I was always amazed how he conducted himself so well. Connors and McEnroe never managed to conduct themselves so well. Of course the ability to handle the occasion enabled him to win the 1980 final in the 5th set.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

That's true about Adam, he likes the muckheaded racquet-abusers.

Davydenko will always have haters because he doesn't behave like a retard. That intimidates people on here.


Le Poussin! Faithfully ignoring the haters since 1995.

Re: Will Davydenko lose his clown status if he beats Federer?

He is a good player and he has prooved that he is a Top 10 Player but not a Grand Slam winner. I can understand why people don`t see him as a Top 10 Player and underestimates him, he dosen`t have anything in his tennis that is special like Feds Forehand or A-Rods serve or Safins Power and I think he lacks a little charisma. He is different but he seems like a nice guy.

Check every single ATP player and his Slam results this year and tell me how in the world you could understand those who say Kolya doesn't belong in the top 10?
So far in his career he has made SF at RG, SF at USO and twice QF at AO, even if we don't bring his 8 MM titles into discussion.

Losing to Puerta who failed a drugs test in that event I think.

Go figure, Hewitt held the #1 spot for 75 consequtive weeks I think, without having ANY kind of weapon (no, legs aren't considered to be a weapon), I guess you could understand people saying he didn't deserve the #1 spot back in the day.
