Davydenko in Montepeiller
Nikolay is the No. 5 seed here and now that top seed Tomas Berdych has withdrawn from the tournament due to a wrist injury the Russian scrapper gets the top part of the draw and a bye in the first round. Here is his draw through to the SF's.
R2: Jarkko Nieminen or QUALIFIER
QF: Edouard Roger-Vasselin, Tatsuma Ito, Sergiy Stakhovsky, Paul-Henri Mathieu
SF: Richard Gasquet, Gael Monfils, Ruben Bemelmans, Victor Hanescu, QUALIFIER, Adrian Ungur, Julien Benneteau
Judging by most of those players the draw for our Niko is easy up til perhaps facing Gasquet or Benneteau.
