Davy's 2012

So let's talk about it ? lets our Niko's forum get alive for a little.
Answer to 5 questions:
1- Do you think he still has it in him and can get to TOP 10?
2- Do you think he can keep himself in top 50 till the end of the year ?
3- Does he will retire in the end of 2012 ?
4- Can he prolong his streak with at least one title in 2012?
5- Can he go to at least 4rd round in a GS ? he haven't been there since AO in 2010 infact only one 3rd round for 2 whole years ..... ?

Here what i think!
1- He still has it but i think his motivation is nowhere close to pre-2010 ... so i think he can't go up there honestly (sad) :S :X ...
2-Yes he will keep himself in top 50 and end the year somewhere between 35-40 (better than now 41...)
3-Yes he will retire after 2012 i'm 90% sure ... :S :S ...
4-Yes he will win one or two of the atp250's this year... one for sure for a second title... i'm not so sure ...
5-I will make a fearless prediction and say that he will get to 2 fourth rounds i think at AO and at UO ... 1rst round at Wimbledon and 2nd round at FO (Wimbledon and FO like this year...)

I was just about to come here and make the thread.

1. sadly..no, i dont think he does. I think that his best he can be is around the top 15

2. i hope so. There were times this year when glimpses of the old davy surfaced and if he can just get that form for a substantial period of time this year he will keep himself in the top 50.

3. It depends. He said himself that the day he cant get direct entry into masters events is the time he will retire. I think he will either way but we'll see

4. He definately can

5. I think he can yes. He will require some luck but if he hits form i think he still has it in him

1. I don't think so really, and not anything against him but it's because of other players. you have the top 4, then if Ferrer stays consistent, Tsonga keeps playing the way he's been playing, Del Potro continues to find his way back... that's already 7 spots, not much space left. Then maybe Berdych, Monfils, some young guys have a big year. :shrug:
2. Top 50, yes I think that is doable.
3. I'd say 80% likely.
4. Yes
5. really depends on the draw. but if he does make a deep run, it changes things for question #1 because those slam points can really float a player's ranking for a whole year.

12-29-2011, 06:22 AM
1 Not consistency, choker
2 Probably
3 Probably. If he's serious about Masters entry, then now except IW/Miami
4 probably a little one
5 he can. idk if he will.

maybe a miracle will happen and he'll take roger out, maybe the ass kickings rogers took in the exho actually means something

Davy http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac214/AnnemieMD/troest.gif Good luck at AO. I hope you are on the opposite side of the draw for Roger and I can cheer for you to the final! (and in the final, if Rog isn't there).

Everyone was saying Davy was awful in the match, but I didn't think he was that awful. I mean I was not comparing him to the Davydenko who was in the top 10, or even the one from last year's Doha final. I was just comparing him to what I saw in the last half of 2011, and I though he was a bit better. Fed just didn't give him much to work with. And I'm sure he stepped on the court feeling negative about his chances, so that would affect how you'd play, too.

Australian Open draw:
Round 1: Cipolla
Round 2: Feli Lopez most likely (or L. Mayer)
Round 3: could be Nalbandian, Isner or Nieminen
Round 4: Nadal (or Ljubicic/Haas/qualifier?)

Well he lost in R1 last year so if he beats Cipolla we're in the money :lol: :sobbing:

Good luck, Niko!

PERFECT DRAW FOR GODDENKO but for this Davy it's a normal draw ...

misty1
01-16-2012, 01:42 AM
dropped the first set 4-6 but took the 2nd set 6-4

2nd set was a break-fest with 7 of 10 service games being breaks but davy got the decisive one

4-6, 6-4

and broke to start the 3rd

and gets broken back:o:mad:

misty1
01-16-2012, 02:05 AM
well this set is going just like the last one with 5 straight breaks of serve but he just held at love

4-6, 6-4, 4-2

TBkeeper
01-16-2012, 04:19 AM
in the moment that i realized he was broken at the very start of the 4th set i knew things gonna go worse ...... but not this worse :( :( :(
now maybe he's gonna play in some atp250 just before dubai where in dubai he got a 2nd round to defend ...

His next tournament --> ATP 500 after DC (i think he'll play for Russia)

good luck against gael

7-5, 6-2 over phau

took advantage of monfils's withdrawl:)

next up is either mezler or bellucci. Its a good chance for a 4th round. Our man just might be seeded at the french yet

TBkeeper
03-13-2012, 10:16 AM
Our Kolya is playing against Bellucci but i fear that his calf is not alright ..... but whatever good luck !!!

Kat_YYZ
03-14-2012, 02:52 AM
withdrew :sadface: anyone know if it was because of the leg injury or the virus?

nalbyfan
03-14-2012, 04:08 PM
The virus caused this W/O
Poor Kolya, he played reallly well in IW
Hope he can recover for Miami

emotion
03-14-2012, 04:09 PM
He does seem to be regaining a bit of form, though. I think he'll be seeded for USO if not for RG

misty1
03-14-2012, 04:11 PM
he just needs 1 or 2 good results in the next couple of weeks and he'll get himself seeded for roland garros

Since thats probably his best chance for a deep run at a slam not having to worry about getting drawn to play nadal, federer or djokovic in his first round would be good

emotion
03-14-2012, 04:13 PM
Real shame he got sick, Bellucci is easy on HC and Federer looks very, very shaky :sad:

misty1
03-14-2012, 04:14 PM
yeah, and then del potro more than likely awaits in the QF

it would have been an amazing chance for a semi final if he didnt get sick and we assume his leg held up

emotion
03-14-2012, 04:18 PM
And then his favorite top 10 HC player. He had a path to the final

misty1
03-14-2012, 04:28 PM
its frustrating for us and im sure its 10x as frustrating for him. he no doubt saw what was happening and he knew this was a great oppertunity.

his form is finally starting to come back but now he's getting shitty luck

I think if he know beats Isner in Miami he'll make very very deep run !

Congrats Davy !! the baby is a girl :) but i am a little bit nervous about Kolya's ranking at the start of the next week :S i think around 55th to 60th place ..... and i HOPE he will succeed to enter directly into Madrid's Main draw !!! i really hope cause in Madrid and Rome he lost in the first round and he can gain points !

TBkeeper

Again Davydenko not warming up for Wimbledon ... but whatever he's there for 1 match or maximum 2 matches so ....

edit - this Grass season was good from Davy 1-2 in singles and 1-1 in doubles :) 2-3 all in all not like other years 0-1 or 0-2

Now we'll see if he manages to go higher in the rankings in Toronto/Cincinnati on both Masters he got 45 points to defend (2nd round on both) i hope he goes to 3rd round in both of them (cause he got 90 points in US open to defend ...) but i'll be satisfied with defending them too !

edit - Davydenko withdraw from Toronto ... losing more and more points he'll go further down the rankings ... he may retire at the end of the year or sooner ... :sad:

Davydenko injured his adductor big time PLUS a minor thigh injury ... but he's playing in Beijing against a Qualifier first round ... we'll see if he withdraws from the tournament :sad: let's hope for a faster recovery ! cause he got a heck of a lot points to defend from here on !
