Carlos Moyà defeated russian Nikolay Davydenko in first semifinal of an exhibition tournament which is played in Mallorca on clay by 6-4, 6-7(4-7) and 7-6(7-1) in aproximately 3 hours of match. Next match will be between Rafel Nadal and the argentinean David Nalbandián.

First set, the russian broke Moyà and had situated up by 2-1, then the local player took the re-break. Finally the spaniard broke him in tenth game of 1st set and took the first set by 6 games to 4.

At the 2nd set the Davydanko took advantadge again in the set by 3-1. But Carlos could level the set with a break. There weren't breaks untill the tie-break, when Moyà had an advantadge of 4-2 and the russian won 5 points in a row and took the Tie-Break game and the 2nd set.

At 3rd set there weren't breaks. But Davydenko had 4 break points in 6th game of 3rd set and one in 8th. Carlos had his break chances at 7th game. After 3 hours of match, the spaniard closed the match with a 7-1 in the last set Tie-Break.

It was a really closed match, two players did a high level match, hard and with lots of long rallies in the baseline. At 3rd set the two players had his chances to take the match, but at the end a tired Davydenko lost it in the tie-break.

So Nadal skipped Davis Cup to ensure he was fit for an exhibition match?

Very interesting...

Nice to see Carlos winning again, even though it's only an exhibition. Hope he keeps it up when he gets to the big clay events.

For a top 10 player, Davydenko has been having some unexpected losses this year (Matheiu, Delic, Rochus, Soderling) in addition to his losses to Ljubicic, Haas, Murray, and Moya. Is he struggling with a major injury or something? Or is there already a thread somewhere about that and I missed it ..?

^^His years of playing tournaments after tournaments are catching up with him. He was seconded only to federer last year for most matches played.

I was thinking the same thing.

Even in Exhibitions, Nadal is unbeatable on the dirt. But of course he might be willing to accord Lord Carlos whatever the prize is in the final.

I'm with Scoobs on this - my first thought was that Nadal was too worried about aggravating a foot injury to play Davis cup but a few days later he can play for hours on clay oh come on. As someone who does quite a bit of sport if I really can't play/run one day I certainly can't a few of days later for at least a couple of hours.

Whether Nadal didn't play because he couldn't give a damn or doesn't like Sanchez is irrelevant I think the Spanish fans have a right to be miffed If Murray did that I would be pissed off a treat and the press would massacre him even though they pay scant attention to Davis cup.

Nadal didn't want to play on a hard court. This is clay. If you don't think there is a difference then you have never played on clay.

If I have a foot injury or niggle - it makes not difference if I run on the pavements or on the soft soil in Highgate woods. It still hurts and i'll still be worried i'll make it worse.
