:woohoo:
Can't believe his H2H with Lopez was 0-4 before the match...
Now Kolya should try snapping his losing streaks against some other players...

What exactly are you expecting us to discuss? The match was played on a non-televised court :rolleyes: All that we can talk about are the stats.
Well done, Denko to finally avenge those 4 previous defeats.

Even on clay Denko struggles with Lopez. Wasted 7 BPs in the first set but credit to him for getting the job done. A weaker player might have folded against such a difficult match-up.

good job kolya, but now no racquet sponsor :mad:! he is using prince frames from two years ago, no stencil, and what looks like a head bag.

The h2h was misleading - all but one were back 2002 to 2004, and the one loss last year was on a desert hard court (and Lopez was serving insanely that week).

Davydenko is normally pretty good against lefties, and Lopez wasn't even serving well for large chunks of the match. Guessing of course, but I think Davy's UE machine was in 5th gear here.

Davy must have had too much F-Lo on the brain leading up to this one. I mean, what was the hold up? Kolya shouldn't be struggling on clay against Lopez. I seem to remember the Spaniard in a Kitzbuhel final, and he had a good RG in 2004, but that was a long time ago and he's frankly dire most of the time. We'll see him get another good Wimby run, but before the grass Davy shouldn't be letting their lop-sided head-to-head get to him.

You are right about the h2h. I watched the match yesterday and Davydenko had a dip in focus in set 2, apart from that very few UE. He was struggling with Lalos aggressive play at times though. Not quite the super defense he had at his peak.
