Hmmm im not so sure, everyone underestimated Robredo, especially in PAW Paris where 90% of people were Pawing against him every match and he got to the semis (where he lost to davydenko in 3!)

This is a closer match-up than people think...not least because Boredo plays a similar game to Kolya. I'd still give the nod to the Russian...but I really wouldn't snort at Boredo :shrug:

If Boredo beats Davydenko, I'm not showing up here for a month! Retirements and W.O. doesn't count. :o

Fast victory over Robredo for Davydenko. Kolya will make himself a nice wedding gift

Perhaps a close first set, but Kolya's on a roll. He'll win in two.

Hopefully Robredo, so that he can shock everybody and shake off the patsy label. Plus, I'm sick to death of Davydenko already, the world's most boring tennis player. :zzz:

Robredo's game is no roller coaster ride either though....a Davydenko match is much more enjoyable any day of the week. :)

Davydenko in 3 I think. He has played in the MC before too.

Although I would like Tommy to win so that everybody stops making fun of him at last...

Wow, one month! That's very brave of you now that the season is over. :lol:

It seems that to be seen as interesting a players needs to argue with the umpire or show excitement when winning a point shouting "vamos", "c'mon", "allez" or try to incite the crowd to support them.

Just playing the game, remaining calm and behaving in a courteous and civilised manner attracts the decription "boring". Davydenko is a model of court behaviour compared to how players like Connors and McEnroe behaved.

Depends whether you are like watching nice technical tennis or whether you are just a sports fan. I agree that for a sports fan Kolya doesn't do much. For a real tennis fan Kolya is a great player.

Sorry but players who "just let their rackets do the talking and" show no interest or emotion whatsoever bore the hell out of me. People who are only interested in the technical aspects of sport are not real tennis fans. I guess I prefer my players to be human and not robotic.

"just let their rackets do the talking and" is probably a key attribute of players who want to dominate and win the most titles in the sport.

"People who are only interested in the technical aspects of sport are not real tennis fans." A large number of club players would disagree and followers of tennis; particularly followers of the 2 most dominant players in the last 20 years.

But is Robredo anymore interesting than Davydenko.

I just cracked open a fortune cookie and the daily numbers were 6, 2, 3.

So I'll say Davydenko 6-7 6-2 6-3.

Heja Davydenko!

Sorry but players who "just let their rackets do the talking and" show no interest or emotion whatsoever bore the hell out of me.

Which players are you referring to here? I think almost every player I've watched has been showing his emotions after the match; be it happiness and relief after a great win or disappointment after a tough loss.

A close match is enough drama for me. And I think there are so many clues to how the players feel, like body language, twitches etc. You don't need a guy to shout "Vamos" or "Dammit" after every point to understand how he feels.

People who are only interested in the technical aspects of sport are not real tennis fans. I guess I prefer my players to be human and not robotic.

Most of the more outacting players are no less "robotic" than the cooler guys, you can tell exactly when they will be drama queens over a line call or try to intimidate the opponent with a celebration after winning a point. I wouldn't say that is more "human", I prefer "childish" or "intimidating" depending on the situation.

But I guess both of us are most happy with the ATP containing players of both kind. In that way I can celebrate when the iceman beats the hothead :devil: and you if the opposite occurs.
