whoops, i thought the stream on masterstv was live.

anyway, expected loss by kohlschreiber. i didn't watch the first two sets so could someone please tell me what the decisive thing was at the end of the second? was it just davydenko hanging in there, wearing kohli down?

I find this pathetic that Davydenko retired in Estoril's final and now is playing very well in Monte Carlo :o

That was close for a while. Davydenko continues his high quality play. Definately earning his spot in the top 4 nowadays.

Exactly how many breaks was there in this match? From the Eurosport live commentary it seemed like it was a breakathon.

In the last few matches that Dav has played he sleeps for the first set and wins the next 2 sets. I am surprised that he's at this tournament being injured and all.

Aww, damn, I was gonna dedicate this one to Clay Death when I saw Kohlschreiber up a set! I guess he never had a chance against the double-handed backhand though, what ya gonna do?

After disliking him after win over Boleli now I am starting to hate him. Where is your injury, you !@#$@!#$!@ fixer? How dare you retire in a final that you could have won ?

Why is everyone whining about this? I really don't get it.

Where would you rather win? Estoril or Monte Carlo? Do you know how much wear and tear it is to play a three-set final?

Bjorn Borg himself retired from smaller events dozens of times and not because of serious injuries. You're talking like Davydenko is the first to ever do this.

Wow Davydenko won and had an injury 3 days ago and pulled out of a final somewhere else.
Where is the proof it wasnt a minor injury but if he carried on would have made him not be able to play for the next 2 weeks at all?

OK, I understand this but to me it isn't a good attitude. It's against the spirit of sport. Nadal would never do this, he always fights to the end, no mattter what will be in the next week.

That is misinterpretation.

Nadal is not like other athletes. He's a big and burly boy who doesn't travel to as many events as Davydenko. Expecting Davydenko to match the endurance of someone like Nadal is unfair.

Davydenko is one of the most depsicable characters to have played the sport.

Strange thing is, the lower he goes the more MTF supports him. Thats the :retard: MTF logic for you. I bet if he murdered a line judge on court, he would gain even more supporters. :rolleyes:

I really felt sorry for him when he was fined for "not trying" and when he was in a slump serving like zillion DF's in a row and when upmire was coaching him to just put the ball in play and he was saying with sad face that he is trying... But now... I hope that Igor will double bagel him tomorrow.

What about all the fans who payed to watch the final? If he didn't want to be tired he shouldn't have even entered the tournament.

I like Davydenko, but this wasn't a good attitude.

I don't think he was 'tired'. From all indication there were signs of exhaustion and suggestion that he was risking injury by continuing.

It's a little bit strange anyway. He had just broken Federer's serve and suddenly retired. Then he goes to Monte Carlo and wins 2 matches without any signs of exhaustion or injury. Of course he had 3 days to rest, but it's still a little bit strange.

But surely you see the dillemma here. In order to prove to the fans that he was indeed injured Davydenko would have had to stay out long enough in the Estoril final until he was 'more' injured.

Once he was 'more' injured (whereby he'd probably still lose in Estoril) he would be able to go to Monte Carlo and lose in the second round, thus proving to his detractors that he was indeed injured.

Get the dillemma? Clearly the idea on his part was to retire so that he could compete in Monte Carlo.

I think that it would have been quite unfair to the fans if Davydenko had handed the match to Federer via a walkover (something that has been done quite often in history - many times by Borg).

Now, perhaps someone in the know here could tell me if the runner-up still gets the same amount for a walkover as he would for actually losing the match.

Good job, denko... you must've found out that a friend of yours put money on you to win halfway through the match :lol: :ras:
