Jimmy Wang? Is he even real? Who is this guy?? That's cool though, I'm glad Davydenko is out because his game is boring. :(

I think he lost in the second round. Grass is not his forte.

Last year he was up a set on Bjorkman in the 2nd round of Wimbledon and seemed to be on track to an easy win but he had to retire. I believe it was his wrist. It continued to bother him the rest of the summer.

I didn't mind that he lost, though, because it at least opened up the draw for Misha to make the Round of 16. :D

But this year I want Davydenko to make the quarters.

Is Jimmy Wang the same kid that played Roddick in 2004 at Wimbledon?

Is Jimmy Wang the same kid that played Roddick in 2004 at Wimbledon?Yes. He trained in the U.S. as a junior (at John Newcombe's academy) & won the Orange Bowl 14s in 1999.

He also defeated James Blake in the first round of San Jose in February.

I believe that takes Davydenko to a career record of one win and nine loses on grass. He might win a round at Wimbledon if he draws Carlos Berlocq.

Yeah. I went Saturday. Had a great day. I saw Lucasz Kubot beat Andre Sa but then lose to Amer Delic. But I was happy with how he played and I'm optimistic about Lucasz's chances of qualifying for Wimbledon. I also saw Stakhovsky's two matches also but i'm afraid it appears he has taken a couple steps back since last year. I was disappointed. Finally I saw the last set of Verdasco's 2nd match. Very see saw set but one could see Verdasco's commitment something that is not always apparent. Agassi was practicing with Gonzo, Henman with Lopez and Murray with an old man :lol:.

I got very sunburned but it was a fun day. Next week I will be going to Roehampton for 3 days and I will be at Wimbledon the entire 1st week (and the 2nd Monday).

Thanks for asking joeb_uk. :)

Guys, I know we all understand how surfaces work and everything... But I still think that it's remarkable, how in a sport which requires being able to create angles and have instant reflexes to time shots, one player can be so strong on one surface (hard), decent on another (clay), and like, not even at a top-100 level on the third (grass).

My dad casually plays tennis, and he really didn't start until I started playing myself for the school, but he pretty much had to be shown all the stats about how clay court points take however many more shots than grass court points and such in order to be convinced that surface REALLY does make a huge difference. And to this day, he says, "I think a truly great tennis player should be able to pick up a tennis racquet and win on any surface."

Federer is pretty great, indeed. Nadal is probably getting there.

Yeah, a kid named Raymond Wang went to HS with me just a year back. He smoked alot of grass, and Jimmy smoked Kolya ON grass. Hehe, ok I'll stop.

I'm not too worried about this result. Davy always seems to go far in about three or four tournaments straight and then lose in the first round of the next couple of tournaments. So I think he'll be back winning hopefully by Wimbledon. I think all that playing week in and week out takes a lot out of him. He needs to rest and recover from the clay season. At least I hope so.

I really doubt Davydenko lost this match ONLY because it was on grass. His game does not just fall apart naturally on grass.

pity Davy, he always finds trouble on grass :p

anyway, happy for Wang, first Bjorkman, then Davy, he played well i think and the more important, he is with confidence :yeah:

well, i dont want Wang to beat Dima :aplot:

I saw Davydenko play Hewitt in Cincinnati, it was absolutely the most boring match I had ever watched... Davydenko isn't one of the guys he feels like he needs to be more offensive against, so it was like 2 hours of boring back and forth rallies, half-hearted attempt at winners, and tracking weak balls down and hitting them back with the same frailty. I don't remember how many sets it was or the score, I just remember that Hewitt won, and I almost stopped being his fan after he gave me such a borefest.

Hewitt was even bored during the match it was so dull. No come ons or anything. Just watching Davydenko's weak shots and then punting them back.
