Re: Abu Dhabi

Great match. Serve worked well, aggressive play and not a lot of ue. And a very relaxed looking David.

Looking forward to Rafa-David tomorrow.

Here's a pic of the boys in Abu Dhabi and one very pleased looking lady.

Re: Abu Dhabi

Great win by David today. He played really aggessively to come back after that first set, good start to the New Year by him, or should I say good finish to the old year.

Can't wait for him and Rafa tomorrow - my 2 favourite players together, of course I'll be rooting for Sexy Ferru though...................

Re: Abu Dhabi

He started off good, went to sleep for a few games & then fought back from a break down in the third set, that sounds like our boy & oh how we've missed him

Thank you to the nice people for putting Rafa & David on second tomorrow

Re: Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates --

Robin Soderling and David Ferrer advanced to the semifinals of the season-opening Capitala exhibition tournament on Thursday.

Soderling outlasted Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2) and Ferrer rallied to beat sixth-ranked Nikolay Davydenko 2-6, 6-2, 6-4 at the Zayed Sports City.

Soderling will take on top-ranked Roger Federer in the semifinals Friday, while Ferrer faces No. 2 Rafael Nadal. Federer and Nadal both had first-round byes in the six-player invitational tournament, which is not part of the ATP Tour calendar.

Soderling, who is 0-12 against Federer in his career, took a 5-1 lead in the first set before Wawrinka started returning better, but the Swede's booming serve proved decisive in both tiebreakers.

Davydenko, who won the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London last month, said he still felt the effects of a recent illness and struggled to maintain his concentration.

"I was suffering from bronchitis last week and even had to visit the hospital," the Russian said. "I thought I was OK, but apparently it was not."

Davydenko still dominated the first set before losing his serve in the fourth and eighth games of the second as the Spaniard evened the match. Davydenko then broke Ferrer in the fifth game of the decider, but Ferrer tied it at 4-4 before breaking again to seal the match.

"We both were playing from the baseline well but I could not get my serves right," Davydenko said. "I was playing well, volleying well but I guess I lost concentration and then he [Ferrer] was replying well to my second serves in that final game."

Viva la Armada
