Well Gulbis had his chances, that's for sure. He even served for it. His youth and inexperience really show in situations like this. Seemed like no one wanted to win the match towards the end.

Congrats Davy!

Tight one but baldy pulls through :)

Close one. Did Gulbis waste mp in the second set?

I recon the davydenko of late last year would have lost this, he is gradually getting better mentally. Good win

Gulbis chocked when he was serving for the match. Too bad.

No, he wasted MP at 5:4 in the third set. Gulbis plays tie-breaks terribly. Another young choker beside JMDP.

No, but he did have one in the third set on Davy's serve at 4-5. A really nerve-wrecking match to follow on the scoreboard.

Gulbis had several double faults while he was serving for the match.

Ernie :banghead:

I'm happy for Davydenko though. Now that the fixing scandal is behind him we'll hopefully see him more focused than before.

Now tell me why on earth do you think this match was fixed? If someone bet loads of kolya winning, and it was fixed it would be Gulbis in the bad book.

Stop trying to be funny like that, can everyone just drop the whole fixing thing now :o

Erno needs to stop choking fast.

03-30-2008, 02:04 AM
Another choke while serving for the match, 0:40 plus a DF. This is becoming his habit.

03-30-2008, 02:42 AM
damn these chokes Erno :sad:

better concentration is required in the key moments

Kolya :banana: :woohoo:
a close shave for Kolya !!!!!!!!!!

03-30-2008, 09:33 AM
Happy that Kolya won :woohoo: good luck for the tournament.

Well done Koyla :) I'm sure he feels a lot better now that he knows he will be cleared of the betting charges.
