Barcelona: Davydenko beats Steps 67 62 62

Summary of match:

Davy breaks, chokes horribly serving for set, and poor in tiebreak.

Steps gets to 2-2, throws in a df, awful volley, gets broken. Basically rubbish from then to the end.

Third set identical to second. Even down to the same df/missed volley combo for Steps to self-break.

Davy quite good in 3rd set, really nailing the groundstrokes. Kinda easy by then though, Stepanek had given up.

A-B-C, smoking Stepanek is like 1-2-3.

Reminiscent of the Steps-Verdasco match in Monte Carlo. As then, Kolya read the Czech's game like it was a Harry Potter book in 14-point font. Slow start, but after that it was a dissection job. That's another h2h he's started to sort out.

There was no way Crackanek was gonna beat Davy. Next time itll be 2 and 2.

So, Wawrinka was saving himself for Rome.
