I'm not at all surprised that Zhenya doesn't want to play singles anymore. Today's performance -- though he was put on the spot with Misha's illness -- demonstrates that. He's played too much, too long And he said in Milan that he wasn't planning to play singles in this tie.

I'm wondering if it was really a good thing that he continue playing singles this year . . . it's obvious he's not the same player he once was

Does anyone see Zhenya on any picture where "teammates are hoisting Davidenko"? Or maybe he was seen hoisting Youzhny an year ago?

I am worried about Zhenya.. We can't win The Cup without him.. We wouldn't have won even this tie without him. And he seemed to really be not that much excited anymore..
