Davydenko should be fined and/or suspended by the ATP tour

After watching Davydenko's play here in Monte Carlo, he should be fined and/or suspended for what he did in Estoril. Defaulting because of a minor "injury", and saying that he did so because he didn't want to miss Monte Carlo is ridiculous...and unfair to all tennis fans...particularly those in Portugal. The tour should have slammed him...but they did not want their last Masters series winner sullied in the media. Disgraceful.:mad:

Estoril is only a MM event
no one fusses when someone pulls out of a event before a slam with a niggle

thats exactly what it was, precaution.

Monte Carlo is worth so much more, in pts and $$.

when a footballer is taken off with a niggle after 70 mins, and he plays again the next match, its good management.
had he been kept out there, it could end up being more damaging and miss more matches.

That was smart move by Daydenko. Much better than what JJ did in AO SF against Sharapova. She had injury time-out and cried. After match she said that she didn't want to retire because it would have been unfair to crowd since it was semifinals!?

I know I wouldn't.

Of course it is disappointing for the fans (especially those who paid money and took the trouble to make the trip), but I highly doubt it Kolya would just give up a chance to win another title.

he is pathetic coward. it just adds to the evidence that he quits when he feels the need to.

In this particular match against Fed, he felt he had no chance so he ran. even Fed said after the match that he has never had anybody "quit on him " before.

this miserable bastard practiced for 4 hours the day after that match. i have said it all along that there is nothing wrong. there was no injury at all.

i agree with the thread starter to a certain point. i get annoyed (and this happens very often in womens tennis) when a player pulls out injured because they feel they cant win, not they cant carry on. if your injured but can finish the match i think a player always should, obviously not to the point of them getting injured futher. i just feel players are so quick to throw in the towel these days.
i know estirol wasn't a big tournament and this problem is not exclusive to davydenko, but who thinks davydenko couldn't have finished that match and played this week?
another example is PHM at the oz open this year, did he pull out because he was so injured he couldn't carry on, or did he pull out because he was getting a pasting and the injury wasn't helping matters? if it was the second should that be excepted?

I'm telling you. This is why the "average" sports fan (who is not a regular follower of the tour) looks at tennis players as "female kittens". Either start calling these smaller tourneys exhibitions, or get rid of them. BUT PLEASE: do NOT allow a player, who admitted after that he quit because Monte Carlo was coming up, to get away with "tanking".

What is Russian for "No Mas"? I'm sure Davy-tank-o knows.:mad:


Give the TROLLING a rest Sawan:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I'm not trolling...just sick to the stomach that the #4 player in the world quits when its convenient. If he wants to do that, the WTA "tour" is always looking for a few good heartless $ grubbers.

Ok, now say people in Halle want to see Faterer and he withdraws right before the tourna to get prepared for Wimbledon and gives the reason fatigue or so. Isnt that fucked up as well. Even worse I might say, cause the people bought tickets for the entire week to see him and he doesnt show up.

So dont tell me Niko is the only one who takes precautions here and there and mostly Niko has a very full schedule, because he likes to play many matches, but still, he's gotta focus onto the big tournaments as well. So, back off.

And generally the crowd wanted Faterer to win and the organization as well, I sensed that they wanted prestige/Faterer's good words, so what the heck they even got what they wanted.

But of course I would have loved for Niko to win Estoril... But well. Thats the way it is now.

It's not like he went into the match planning to retire half way through. He lost the first set; clearly felt exhausted, realized that it was an unphill battle; weighed the pros versus the cons of continuing to play and ultimately retired.

He did the right thing. He could have played on and won Estoril but then be completely spent and unable to perform in Monte Carlo, the more important event.

Again, no one blames players for withdrawing like crazy from events like Queen's. But here everyone gets on Davydenko's case because he's everyone's favorite punching bag.

:yeah: A player can't make everyone happy and no one wants to be happy with him, anything he does they say he's cheating - winning, losing it doesn't matter, the haters are predictable.

I can see how people would be disappointed but he knows his body best and I do believe there was an actual injury, maybe not serious but if he thought he could be injured in the future if he kept playing then i guess it's better to drop out of a final and play better in the next tournament rather than stay in the final and lose and go on to lose in the second round of monte carlo. :shrug:

It must be a cold day in hell because I see sawan's point. I've never had anything against Nikolay and I still don't but his behaviour is more than questionable.

I'm glad Roger won Estoril but I can't help but think Nikolay is a scamp. The betting scandal that was hanging over his head didn't help, either. I was beginning to believe he was innocent until he pulled out of the final. That's not to suggest that I thought he would win.

People have been saying he was up a break when he retired. So what? He was down a set at the time anyway. But what bothers me is that there appears to be absolutely nothing wrong with him and it's like he's playing more tennis than the rest of the top ten put together.

I think it is a shame that Davydenko pulled out at Estoril when in my opinion it appeared he could've played on but the condition of both his hand and his upper groin (which he had to go off court to have examined) were deteriorating to the point where he didn't believe he had a chance of winning. I can see why some people get pissed off over that but Davydenko's thought processes are simple and rational. Why continue playing a match with deteriorating condition which makes it basically impossible for me to win when all that will achieve is potential injury and then pulling out of MC.

I don´t know why people are surprised. He told like a year ago, MM tourneys were all shit and that he didn´t give a flying fuck for them :shrug:

The betting scandal that was hanging over his head didn't help, either. I was beginning to believe he was innocent until he pulled out of the final.

One free piece of advice:

Agreed, he said that about Sydney. It's a small event, before a major one, it's not like players don't withdraw from the MM, if there is a slight problem to save themselves.

They did it before PMK and will do it afterwards.

Why didn't Federer come to this idea - withdraw from Estoril, stay fresh for Monte Carlo?


By the way, Gu-Gu, don't waste your precious time to teach the others...you have your exams. Now, get lost and come back with some good news.;)

Excellent points. Why didn't Federer? Because Roger cares more about history and titles than paychecks. Davy-tank-o? He needed to quit so he could play Monte Carlo and buy another "magic racquet".:rolleyes:

I donīt know why people are surprised. He told like a year ago, MM tourneys were all shit and that he didnīt give a flying fuck for them :shrug:

Exactly why the ATP tour should have applied the heat to him. And the audacity of Davy-tank-o? His withdrawal shows just how much he "fears" the wrath and persecution of the ATP tour leaders.

All I know is that as an attorney, if I take a case for $500.00, and then take another case for $10,000 immediately after, I DO NOT have the right to say "O.K...I'll work harder on the $10,000 case because, you know what?...it pays more". But then again, I'm a professional. Davy-tank-o is a professional....

it was not nice at all his retirement,and he was playing well and leading in the second set. he played a final against one of the best player in the history and even more he was winless against him, all other players would have tried until the end.

and if he wanted to preserve himself for Montecarlo then he should have not played that tournament at all. different case if he'd had been really injured and struggling.

Look, when you're playing and something is off you can never know how bad it really is. With the adrenaline pumping you never know how bad it is. Plus it was cold and very windy so that didnt help the case. Playing with pain in these conditions and on clay on top of that could lead to severe injuries, because you have to adapt in the last moment, so that you can pull something really bad. He doesnt exactly have that bomb serve either that gives him loads of free points. His tennis is very physically demanding, too. Giving it was a small tournament this was the most sensible thing to do.

And now look we've got the top4 seeds in the semis of Monte Carlo, a tournament that reaches more households and of much bigger importance and I guess in the big picture, thats what counts. Remember last years' match between Nadull and Davy? That one really rocked, real' good stuff. Would be great if we can watch something like that tomorrow as well (but with Davy winning of course :angel:), especially now that Niko has a win over Nadull already which should help him mentally. But I dont know, Niko looks a bit tired though. I hope he's gonna do fine.

After watching Davydenko's play here in Monte Carlo, he should be fined and/or suspended for what he did in Estoril. Defaulting because of a minor "injury", and saying that he did so because he didn't want to miss Monte Carlo is ridiculous...and unfair to all tennis fans...particularly those in Portugal. The tour should have slammed him...but they did not want their last Masters series winner sullied in the media. Disgraceful.:mad:

Are these withdrawls happening too often.

Davydenko makes the semi-final the week after reaching the final last week and now Djokovic this week!!!

Only a week ago a thread said Federer had withdrawn from Monte Carlo.:lol::lol::lol:

You are one of the biggest crybabies on this forum. It's too cold to watch tennis, you can't see the ball. Taking exhos seriously.

Here are some classics as to why you can't be taken seriously.
