I wonder if any Asian fans here will be going there tomorrow? Robin Soderling, Tomas Berdych, Nikolay Davydenko & David Ferrer will be playing there this year. Hopefully can post some pictures here tomorrow! ;)

:scratch: I'm not sure if anyone will read this thread but still I'll post here :)

Four 1-set singles matches:

Nikolay Davydenko (RUS) def. Tomas Berdych (CZE) 6-2
Kolya was 0-2 down with 3 or 4 double faults. Then he won 6 games consecutively to beat Berdych. It seemed that Kolya's not giving any "face" to Tomas :tape:

Robin Soderling (SWE) def. David Ferrer (ESP) 6-4
Robin was up an early break. David broke back. Near the end of the set, Robin broke again and won. David was serious, he ran down to every ball. The serve & winners from Robin are just too good :yeah:

3rd place battle: David Ferrer (ESP) def. Tomas Berdych (CZE) 7-6
Tomas actually had an early minibreak in the TB. He smiled a lot and got broken back :lol: Very good effort by David. How many singles matches (normal and exhibition matches included) have Tomas lost in a row now? Maybe 6? :o

Championship battle: Robin Soderling (SWE) def. Nikolay Davydenko (RUS) 7-6(6)
Kolya held a matchpoint at *6-5 in the TB but he nets a backhand ball. Then Robin broke and served it out.

Doubles match

Tomas Berdych (CZE)/David Ferrer (ESP) def. Nikolay Davydenko (RUS)/Robin Soderling (SWE) 7-5

It's a highly boring match and many of the audience left during the match :tape: Unfortunately, the match dragged on and on with many breaks.
Interesting sight seeing them pair up like this though...
