*Nadal has a fever*

IN all honesty Nadal showed great heart being down 5-0 and still played the match out.

Ladies and gentlemugs, Kolya is back. :worship: That cross court backhand is such a magnificent thing to behold. :hearts: :inlove: :hug:

Nadal called for the trainer when he got broken in the second and said he was "more tired than usual". His intensity went down in the second but he was still getting outplayed by Denko's early hitting for the biggest part of the first.

Davydenko completely dominated the rallies in the second set. Haven't seen him hit the ball that cleanly in a long while. When serving for the match at 5*-0 Kolya got ridiculously tight and hit a couple of UEs and got broken. The second time he tried however he saved 4 BP before converting the match point.

The final vs Federer tomorrow will be great. :music:

davy did choke massively at the end and a collapse of epic proprtions was looking on the way but something we have to remember is that davy has not played someone like nadal in forever

its only natural that he'd get tight serving for it

overall a fantastic match from davy:worship:

the problem with Nadal is that he has such a defensive mentality that he sticks to defense even when he's being outplayed by a better aggressive baseliner, the only way he would have been able to challenge Davydenko is if he played with reckless abandon on his shots going all out like he did when he was about to lose the match, he should have done that all match, yes it means he'll do more UEs but that's the only way to live with a player of Davydenko's caliber on this surface.

too bad for his fans that doesn't have Federer's mentality when it comes to this, as he has the tools to play a more aggressive game.

No doubt all the Nadal haters will be praying that Davy lands in his section for the draw.

But unlike the real match threads whose results you are not too fond of, you weren't whining about the number of replies either.

Rafa called for trainer and said he started feeling bad in the 3rd game of the match. He looked like he was about to fall over for most of it.

He was willing to let Davy bagel him in the 2nd until Davy started whining to Cedric. After the third rant, Rafa gave Davy a good scare by winning 10 straight points. I swear he looked at Davy in disgust everytime Davy flubbed a return.

Only reason Rafa didn't retire was to play to make the doubles final for Marc Lopez. Which is about to start at the moment.

I find it funny how since Davydenko has started owning nadal the amount of abuse he gets here has gone from practically everyone to just nadal fans.

Davy has always been one of my favorite players, since the end 2009 he really took it up another level. Every year people say he won't even make the top 10.
Right now he and Del Potro can break Nadal mentally because those two have no fear of him.
The results tell the same story.

How sweet it is! Nacheat as usual making injury claims. Some things never change.

i must have missed something because i watched this whole match from start to finish and i didn't see or hear nadal claiming to be injured. what i did see was a valiant young man out there clearly suffering from a fever and a cold but still fighting a losing battle to the end and not giving up. but like i said you may have seen something i didn't. could you say where in the match he claimed to be injured?

I don't think I've ever said he's humble. I think it's very hard to be an elite sportsman (to the extent where you're at the very top of the game) and remain humble in the truest sense of the word. If I have ever said it, I've been stupid enough to have been influenced by the media who have promoted that image.

Both players have had cases of less than warm handshakes with opponents, both have had 'words' with umpires, both have played mind games with opponents to try and win.

But if that was good enough for Federer to win the sportsmanship award 6000 times, then Nadal deserves it at least once for trying to emulate Federer's behaviour. ;)

Nadull should be fined :rolleyes: The only reason he didn't retire was because the officials told him that he would have to retire automatically from the doubles as well as it is played on the same day hence the rest of the match was a tank :o

i'm a bit confused so u will have to explain this for me. so let me see if i get this straight, a boy, who is CLEARLY ILL, decided to get back on the court and finish a match that he was being pulverised in because mainly he did not want to forfeit the doubles final and let his friend, the fans and the paying public down, should be fined because this is despicable un-sporting like behaviour? by the way if he was tanking he would have just allowed the match to finish 6/0. winning 2(almost 3)more games to me shows fighting spirit; but hey, maybe that's just me.

To be fair, I was trying to be nice by giving you credit for the point you made about Davydenko.

But a Murray fan calling other players a brat is a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. His attitude in a lot of matches has been awful. Most recently against Wawrinka in a SLAM. I do enjoy it when he loses those kinds of matches though, whilst whining like a baby and looking up at his mummy. :p

If Rafa didn't have doubles to play he would have retired after the first set. ATP rules prohibit him from playing doubles next match if he withdraws from singles. He couldn't do that to Mark - not in a championship match.

Dont know if anybody noticed but during changeovers he would rush to his chair (usually he waits for the other person to crossover - that is a ritual with Rafa). But in the second set he was just glad to go and lump up on his seat.

At 5-0 on second set he even forgot to take his towel before getting seated.

During a changeover he called the trainers and complained about his low energy (Only Rafa could do that :) )

It was bad watching him in the second set. I thought he would collapse. I was almost mad at davydenko for stinking it up at the end and not finishing it 6-0. Rafa just needed to be off the court. He was slicing to conserve energy and Davy was taking those apart.

They are up a set in doubles but down 4-5 i think in the second. Not sure if its on serve. No stream.

Nothings matter :) Think Rafa will turn into a easter bunny and steal the australian open.

Well, this was kind of expected, good thing that Davy beat him, Rafa needs to recover quickly from this sickness...get well soon Rafa and kick butt at the AO. :D

Davy, well played, he just better not bend over and kiss Roger's ass in the final, if he plays near his best, he could give Roger a real run for his money.

That's how you know the fever/sore throat talk is BS. He may have had "the beginnings" of a "would be" common cold but whatever the hell it might have been it already got cured two days ago and he was healed by the army of doctors that accompany him and provides him with the latest, most powerful antibiotics money can buy.

Yet, here we are still talking about "it" as if he's got an incurable lung influenza or birdych flu or something...

And all the while Mr. Oscar is hoodwinking us and playing two matches a day for DAYS IN A ROW!!!

it worked! i'm officially hoodwinked! because i, strangely enough, believe that HE IS ILL. again what is rafa's agenda for doing all these ridiculous things that u people are accusing him of doing? what does he hope to achieve? i'm confused.

I doubt Davydenko will beat Federer, though I'd still be happy if he did.

@Corwandt - WRONG WRONG WRONG! Nadull is not the overwhelming favourite. Federer is the favourite, but not the overwhelming one. Nadull is second favourite, with Murray third and Soderling 4th. Djokovic can not be included, considering how terrible he is.

what tennis have you been following? all anyone can talk about, write about, pray for/against or speculate about is how much nadal is the favourite to win the AO. federer despite his very good end to the season and WTF win is still 2nd favourite. murray and djoko are in consideration, as they have to be, and soderling is an also ran. you should really stop posting in the nadal threads if you hate him so much. i find your posts to be the stupidest of all!

If Rafa didn't have doubles to play he would have retired after the first set. ATP rules prohibit him from playing doubles next match if he withdraws from singles. He couldn't do that to Mark - not in a championship match.

Dont know if anybody noticed but during changeovers he would rush to his chair (usually he waits for the other person to crossover - that is a ritual with Rafa). But in the second set he was just glad to go and lump up on his seat.

At 5-0 on second set he even forgot to take his towel before getting seated.

During a changeover he called the trainers and complained about his low energy (Only Rafa could do that :) )

It was bad watching him in the second set. I thought he would collapse. I was almost mad at davydenko for stinking it up at the end and not finishing it 6-0. Rafa just needed to be off the court. He was slicing to conserve energy and Davy was taking those apart.

They are up a set in doubles but down 4-5 i think in the second. Not sure if its on serve. No stream.

Nothings matter :) Think Rafa will turn into a easter bunny and steal the australian open.

Like I said, he deliberately tanked and should be fined for it :shrug:

Marc plays in double during the season, so it will give him more points for his ranking.
Of course, money is not the problem here, because Marc is paid also when he practices with Rafa out of tourneys.

And 2 trophies in 2 weeks isn't a bad start, whatever the condidtions are.

I have to say, that was the coldest handshake I've ever seen by Rafa

yes it was really cold and out of character for him. but i don't think it was directed towards davy. i think he was just really angry at himself and the situation. rafa is not perfect. he is human and no human being,(or any living creature) when they are severely under the weather is ever in the mood to be civilised or friendly. it was a very honest reaction to having a stupid flu hamper and derail his attempts to do well in a tournie he clearly wanted to win. i don't think it was right but understandable.

Nadal is currently marginal favourite to win AO:

A Federer win tomorrow possibly would make Federer marginal favourite.

If Davydenko, Murray and Djokovic are all in Nadal's half of the draw (possible if Soderling wins this week) then Federer would be a clear favourite.

my point was that he was healthy and fit enough to play ANOTHER match after this and even win it, so there is no excuse for him, if he really had a bad health issue he would have retired from both matches, he was good enough to make it to singles SF and win the doubles, Davydenko deserves credit for outplaying Nadal and making him feel more miserable than other players did in previous matches when he was less recovered from his fever or whatever this is which he had before tourney started.

it's not like Davydenko hasn't proven that he can beat Nadal on hard courts time and time again, hasn't he beaten him on this same court last year in one of the best matches of the year?

Him beating Murray is not impossible, but obviously his chances reduce drastically if he runs into Murray as does other players when they run into someone better than them on the surface.

You don't improve--you stagnate= decline because others around you are improving.
Nadull absolute peak was 2008- he is still in his peak but declining.
He won his slams by beating nobodies while the tour lost form or injured.

he couldnt even give his 100%. He has been slicing away in his matches here. Remember cinci and toronto? ANd then everything changed at the USO with his serve. Well Doha is just like that.

He will find tennis a lot easier now when he is healthy ;) ANd who knows what new weapon he brings with him. You will see him play all-out in melbourne. Its gonna be fun. And I am rooting for him to play davy in R4, Murray in the QF, Novak in the SF and Fed in the final. It will be a treat to see him make history beating all of these. (you could even add Delpo as his R1 opponent). He still only has to beat seven guys. The countdown begins LUIE. You have celeberated Fed putting up so many records.

I disagree that he is in decline or that the field of injured or in poor form. I do agree that in the USO the draw ended up very easy, but the fact is this:

- He won the last 3 grandslams, on different surface.
- He was in the final of the WTF

It's very difficult to repeat that kind of performance next year, and hence you will say he is in decline. That said I didn't think Federer declined until 2009 (where his masters performances dried up).

rafa does not consider his friend to be a charity case. he has more respect for him than that. he is however willing to help him to EARN his own money and improve his ranking and career in the process. marc is a very good doubles player and rafa has often credited him with any doubles success they have together. to this end, he is using his status to get marc into tournaments he would not be able to get into on his own and help to give his career the push it needs. it has worked; marc's ranking has improved markedly since he started playing with rafa. he has won doubles titles including a masters at indian wells. it even gave him the opportunity to get into the main draw of a slam where he did really well.

No problem, I respect your opinion,I judge by Game not by result, fed played better in 2005 than 2007 but in 2007 he won 3 slams & YEC. In 2005 he won 2 slams only.
Nadull won 2 slams in 2008 but the level of play & his competition was much better than in 2010.
In 2008 his serve was good,movement,forehand,backhand.
In 2010 his serve got a little more mph but it didn't affect the outcome much.
He recieved two blood spinning treatments for his knees
His bh is no way near as good as it was in 2008 but that just me.
