Davy was in demolition mode for a set and half. Monaco was able to settle down and play a bit after that. Still a straight set win was never in doubt.

I'm a little surprised Monaco won that many games. Mugdasco will offer a little more resistance but not much more.

Pico was never going to be a problem with Kolya, I don't think Nando will fold in straights but the russian will prevail ;)

Verdasco will win.

Sure, he just loves playing tremendous returners who mess up his game plan, never mind in sizzling form

Kolya

Verdasco will win.

My fear.

Took Monaco a set and a half to get used to Davydenkos spped. After that he played pretty well. Mixed up his court positioning got some good depth and forced some errors from Davy. They were going tit for tat until the last two games of the third.

Monaco made me a fan today as he really worked to get into the match. A lesser player would have thrown in the towel. This was always a very bad matchuop for Monaco. I think most of Davys matches will have a first set blitz the way he is playing right now.

oh oh...Nando just had a walk over which means he hardly played at all and will be fresh and sparkling for Rd4.
Should I be worried:eek:

But luckily Kolya didn't have a long match today so rest well:wavey:

If Federer doesn't win AO this year, I would love for Davydenko to win it. What a lovely game he has, such a joy to watch. :D

You've got nothing to worry about.

I'm really not into Davydenko, and I love Pico, so while the result pissed me off, I was in awe at Davydenko. Usually with that sort of scoreline, I would have sat there and said nothing but how much I hate what Davy was doing to my faves, but I really enjoyed seeing my 3rd fave get thrashed. It really was beautiful tennis:)

Original post should read Koolya. He and Fed will have a blistering QF if they both get there.

Q. So much of the emphasis on tennis these days in the men's game is about players who are 6'7", 6'9". We have Karlovic, Isner, Del Potro. Huge men. Here you are.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Come on. But I am not so small.

Q. Relatively.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: To another guy, maybe.

Q. There are different ways of succeed in tennis.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: But these guys running like me? No.

Q. Trying.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: These guys just have different tennis. I think it's now at this time, if you see, it's tennis is so much different. Everybody can play. You know, some guys who make good serve and play volley and another guys running play only baseline and play very well.

That's was I ‑‑ Nadal also 6'0".

Q. A lot of stories in the papers are about how the male tennis player is getting bigger and bigger. When you walk past Isner you must think he's a giant.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: But why everybody scare me? Of me, I mean.

Q. Maybe you scare them more than they scare you.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Yeah, but I hope I do my level, you know, and I can beat every 6'0" guys in the tour.

Q. Are you still one of the least‑known players? Do you get bothered for your autograph? You said no one in London did at all. Are you becoming a little bit more...

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: If I go outside now here, it's be difficult to do in autograph. But in the street in the city, yes it's easy. Nobody recognize me and it's good feeling really. Really good feeling.

Q. You live your life.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Yes. I like what ‑‑ how I enjoy my life, yes, like this.

Q. If you win a Grand Slam, what do you think will happen in Russia?

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: I don't go to Russia after Australian Open. That's was nothing happen there. (Laughter.) I have another tournaments, you know. I celebrate another tournaments then. It's okay.

Q. Do you think the people of Russia will celebrate?

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: I don't think so. It's not like football. Not really. In soccer, yes, everybody go in the street drinking. But I don't think so if I win Grand Slam everybody start to drink, all Russia. I don't think so. But it's Monday. It be Monday next day and everybody need work.

Q. Do you think you'll get a call from Marat Safin if you win?

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: He's now in Argentina. How can I call him?

Q. You don't think he will call you if you win a Grand Slam?

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Why if I see him in Davis Cup in Moscow?

Q. If you're in Russia, do people recognize you in the streets? Do they know you?

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Sometimes looking me, and then not believe it's me. Because Russia, like people think about how he can walk on the street because always he driving car. Never you see, you know, really famous people just walking somewhere.

Like say if you go in, I don't know, like in the bath sitting somewhere, people watching you and go, No, it's can't be him. It's not normal. It's mentally Russian.

Q. If you had to marry another Russian tennis player, who would it be?

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Marry?

Q. Get married, like husband and wife.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: If I married another tennis player? Man or woman? (Laughter.). I have already wife. I have my beautiful wife. I don't want to have any ‑‑

IRINA DAVYDENKO: I hear you.

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: She's here.

Q. Sorry about that. (Laughter.)

GOOD STUFF KOLYA :cool:

Davy was in complete control of the match. The score could have been even worse por Pico.

Also, I think Fed is the only one capable of stopping Denko in this tourney. Too bad they won't face off in the final...
