Great win David :bigclap:

I thought it would be more difficult than this, was Davydenko injured or something :confused:
In the third set Koyla seemed more confortable and Nalby began missing. When Davydenko won it i was expecting the worst :scared:.
Luckily Nalbo managed to win the fourth, despite a good effort from Davy :) .

Anyways, Another semifinal in a Grand Slam for Nalby, i hope that this time he'll win the whole thing, but i seriously doubt it.

Good luck against Federer :wavey:

Great job, Nalby! He was clearly the better player on court but then tuned out in the third set where Davydenko started going for broke and hitting a lot of winners. David managed to regroup in the fourth though. :yeah:

Entertaining match, but so frustrating for Davydenko fans. He gives so many gifts and overhits so many mid-court balls! He easily could have broken twice or three times in that 4th set, especially with 0-40 at 2-1 and all the momentum. :rolleyes:

That one point was ridiculous when Davydenko hit that crazy swinging volley too hard but it knocked David in the leg and he won the point anyway. :lol: I think David was shocked and not prepared to dodge a tennis ball.

Congrats to David on another solid Slam. He keeps knocking on the door and eventually he will break through. Maybe this week.

Nalbandian was steady for the most part while Davydenko was hitting more winners and way more errors. David got frustrated with missed chances in the 3rd set and started to lose his cool, but he did pick up his game and especially his serve in the 4th.

The first two sets were amazing. I was scared to see Davydenko playing so well and agressive, but to my surprise, David handled the situation perfectly well and he was playing quite agressive too. In the third David lost it, and Davydenko took advantage of it. In the fourth, it was Davydenko the one making tons of mistakes and allowing David to take the set and match.
David could have been up a break at the beginning of the fourth, but during the break point a long ball from Davydenko hit him without bouncing, and it was back to duce. I thought he was gonna lose the whole thing after that, but no, he kept his cool...sort of...

Nalby hit 9 aces today :eek: :lol:. If you do not count the Tursunov match, then he aced more in this match than in the whole tournament where he only hit 4 aces. If we count the Tursunov match then he made 12 aces (not counting today obviously).
I feel that his serve got much better than usual today.

Totally disastrous game for Davydenko...first 2 sets he did nothing, just walked and hit the balls in the net and out :rolleyes:

3d set was much better, 4th set was even better than third.... until Kolya had 40:0 on Nalby's serve and didn't take the game....it was over from that point :(

COME ON ROGER NOW!!!!!!!!!!! KICK NALBY'S BUTT!!!!! :banana:

Nalbandian was very consistent throughout the first two sets, he really got Davy out of his comfort zone. After 3 & 3, IMO, Nalby mentally put himself through to the semis, he thought he had it n' it was over... HUGE mistake if you ask me... Davydenko was hopeless and had no rhythm or pace whatsoever in those 2 sets, but he rolled the dice when it was obvious Nalby lost focus, and it worked for him for almost a set n' a half. A good win for David, and his match vs. Federer on Friday will be a thriller!

Oh yeah, and that swinging volley... what the heck, seriously?!? I thought Nalbandian was gonna punch him or smthg!

Argh... in any other situation I would wan't David to finally win a Slam but this time I'll have to root for Fed anyway. He is so damn close to make history... and yet, still so far. :awww:
Overcoming both Nalbo AND the clay god himself looks too hard even for Fed... I fear he will succumb under the weight :bigcry:

Good match by Nalby but Kolya wasted a huge chance when he was recieving at 3-4 in the fourth. He ended up losing the game to 30 but he should've won 5 of the 6 points in the game.

Very fast rallies, both players have excellent forehands and backhands. Davy really up'ed the pace when he had a forehand but Nalby dealt with it well. Kolya's cross court backhand was so unreliable today though, he kept hitting long.

Good match, can't wait for Fed - Nalby.

I only caught the last couple of games and I was surprised when the commentator said something about the crowd will probably boo if David wins this match point. What exactly happened? I know it doesn't take much for the French crowd to boo anyway but I didnt notice anything in those last couple of games worth booing.

Great win for Nalbandian but with Federer and very likely Nadal standing between him and the title, it has to be a discouraging proposition. The chances of anyone beating both those guys in five set matches on a clay court are pretty bad.

Nalby served an ace but the linesman called it wide..the chair umpire checked the mark and changed the call....Davydenko accepted that but meant that the ball touched the net (which it didnt)..so Nalby got the point and the french crowd didnt like that for some reason....

But anyways..Nalbandian really has got a higher standard nowadays..no doubt about that

Good luck against Fedz, you can beat him!

The reason the French crowd (and the Brit commentators) were upset wasn't just because of this incident in isolation. In the preceeding game, Davydenko had conceded a point in a similar incident - giving the point to Nalbandian which left DN serving for the match. I think the crowd felt that if Kolya could behave in such a gentlemanly manner on such a big occasion and concede a point, then the least Nalbandian could have done was to agree to play a let on the contested service point instead of taking the point and putting Kolya at an immediate disadvantage in that game. They also didn't like the way DN was throwing his racquet about and muttering as soon as he started losing the 3rd set. The French crowd love to "get involved" and seem to enjoy booing and getting on at players :rolleyes: though on this occasion I happened to agree with them. DN may have won the match but Davydenko showed he was much more of a gentleman :)

I was not a contested service point. Davydenko did not question the ball was in. He argued with the umpire because he thought the point should be replayed (because the lineman had called the ball out). The umpire did not agree with Davydenko (the ball was called out after he tried to hit the ball) and the public booed the umpire when he said 15-0.

This has nothing to do with being a gentelman. This was an argument between the umpire and Davydekno. DN did not do anything wrong. He won the point in a legitimate way.

I understand the frustration of some Davydenko's fans because of the loss (esp. those who expected him to win this rather easily) but there is no need to attack DN.

That is what I said - that Davydenko and the crowd wanted to play a let - which is the same as replay the point. And as Raquel and joyk asked why the crowd were booing - I answered them with the scenario leading up to it. As for being frustrated - I am not particularly a Davydenko fan and his winning or losing doesn't bother me so much - but it wasn't just the crowd -all our British commentators thought it was a bit of a poor thing of DN to do not to replay the point - especially in the light of Davydenko's sporting behaviour in the previous game. You know what us Brits are like about being sporting and "playing the game" and supporting our noble losers!!! We would rather see our players lose that win by what we may consider "unsporting" means :shrug: - we're strange like that :angel:

I can be very critical of my fav. players. I was the first to admit that DN acted like a stupid brat in Croatia. But, in this case, I don't see any "unsporting" behavior from him. This was just a question between the umpire and Davydenko.

As for the Brits and "unsporting" means, well, what can I say? I do love the Brits, I lived there for a year, but sometimes you use double standards. I was reminded every day about Maradona's hand of God but you had totally forgot how you won the world cup in 1966!!!!

The American commentators agreed with you. Davy had no play on the ball and his movement was not affected by the call- which was late, and so they felt that the 15-0 was correct and did not seem to think that David was being unsporting by letting a correct call stand.

The stupid thing is, in the days when I supported David and followed him everywhere - he almost certainly would have done the "sporting" thing - I've lost count of the number of matches I went to live when he condeded points to his opponent and behaved in an amazingly sporting way, which was one of the reasons why I supported him so much. Sadly - that has all changed with him now - he may be a more successful player than he was a couple of years ago - but he has changed as a player and a person and lost something very important in the process :sad: Anyway - guess I should get off this computer and watch Ljubo/Benneteau - looks like it could be fun :)

If your flag is a true one (and many people don't use their own flags here which is why I mention that!)- then I'm not surprised you think that!!! I spent several years living with a Scots guy in Scotland, and they would cheer anyone who played against the English - it's kind of tradition just like the Chileans and Argentines always cheer against each other!!!

:eek: this is a previous post I made about the world cup which sums up why Scots don't like when England do well.

I'll explain why we want you to lose.

We have to listen to the English media. When you win, it is unbearable, we don't give a toss about England. We are Scottish but are reminded about 1966 every 2 minutes of a football match. I'm not saying that the commentary is wrong (it is but that's not the point) i'm saying we shouldn't have to listen to it. We should have Scottish people commentating. If England played Brazil, and the commentators were Brazil fans, you wouldn't be very happy either.

It's not racism or anything, i like English people fine, I just hate the media.

Now, to deal with the rest of your post, I'm not saying that it was a good thing for Diego :worship: to have done but it did show a level of genius :devil:

Coria is a cheat huh? :rolleyes: There speaks a Gaudio fan.

:eek: this is all totally :topic:

And there was me thinking the "auld enemy" thing went back to Culloden!!!! As for being a Gaudio fan - yes I am - but my support of Gaudio and the way he plays has nothing to do with my dislike of Coria :devil: I like to think I'm mature enough to make my own mind up about people and whether I respect them or not - and the fact that Coria/Gaudio have this daft rivalry and don't like each other off court is immaterial to me - that's their business not mine!!!!
I just don't like Coria :p

Anyway - as you say - totally :topic: - and I really should go and watch this Ljubo match!!! Bw - even though I was born here I'm only half English - so do you still love me?
