Davydenko seems to play better when coming back from injury. He's a bit of a dark horse, especially on grass, but I have him pencilled in for the second week at Wimbledon.

If in 2011 the 4 GS winners were Nalbandian/Davydenko/Haas/Gonzo I would be a happy man :angel:

Davy is playing in Halle against medical advice.

:cuckoo:

Russian second seed Nikolay Davydenko defeated Simon Greul of Germany 7-6 (7-1) 6-0 in his first competitive match since breaking his left wrist in March.

"After three months out, it was hard to come back," he said. "Training is nothing like matches, and I was so tired out there - my legs were so heavy.

"But after winning the tie-break, I was less nervous and just got better and better. I am slowly getting my self-confidence back."

Davydenko admitted he had been advised not to play in Halle since his wrist was not fully healed.

"I was not ready for the French Open because I could still feel pain and it would have been hard to come back in a five-set match," he said.

"I felt my recovery was going so slow so I decided to take a risk and come to Halle. It was my decision.

"I don't feel any pain any more and, after training for four days, I feel my wrist is now holding up."
