Lots of errors by Davydenko and a few good shots. Gilles played well to win the tiebreak and did enough to win the second set after being up a double break.

Simon was not good but I've never seen Davydenko playing that bad : seemed that he didn't know anymore how to play tennis.

it's clearly a mental matter : if he gets confidence back, he can still play great as in Doha :shrug:

i thought simon was injured?

After his loss last week, he didn't pick up a racket until this monday when he arrived at Marseille, according to the paper. He said on monday he's still dealing with the neck problem. But it's probably better than last week. And I guess Kolya is bad enough that Gilles can beat him without being 100%.

I agree. Kolya was very poor, and his level is much lower than it was even 6 weeks ago in Doha (when I thought he actually played reasonably well).

I also think that a lack of confidence is some of the problem, and he'll surely get some of that back when he plays a few weaker draws...maybe a couple more '250s' or qualifying matches for Masters (if needed).

But it is hard to see him making it all the way back to the top unless he has a major improvement. At his age, and with his slender physique, that seems unlikely. :sad:

I'm expecting him to become stuck somewhere in the better part of the top 50, but running into the heavyweights too early in the big draws to threaten much higher than top 20-25.

Kolya is a very funny guy. He's by no means a second tie player. He can beat anyone on the tour in any given day.

He can come accross as a bit arrogant at times but that adds to his charisma. federer was lucky to beat kolya in the AO 2010. Davydenko was killing him and then suddenly went down in the middle of the second set..

Oh and 6-4

He's good but he's a 2nd tie player compared to Fed, Nadal and Djokovic. Yet he's more arrogant and big-headed than them when he's winning (2009 fall-early 2010).
He has never been close to winning a Slam and had too many early losses.
Nadal has won a bunch of majors, masters series, davis cups, gold medal....and he has a positive H2H against his main rivals Fed,Djokovic and Murray. Those are the H2H that really matter. He won't lose any sleep being 4-6 against Davydenko + there are many matches yet to be played between them.

duong
02-16-2011, 10:45 PM
I feel the same way, I used to like Davydenko because of his game, but in 2009 when Nadal was playing terrible, he made that classless comment that Nadal "only used his physic to play tennis" and that he was done, then I realized he's a clown. Kicking someone while they're down, real classy :rolleyes:

I don't think he said he was done, but he said many times, yes, that Nadal's game was all about his physic.

I think his physique is still good, I have no worry about that, he's a hard-worker and with his kind of game he can last long, the problem is all mental.

Problem is that if Davydenko drops too much more he probably won't get wild cards because he's not much of a draw card.

Wonder if there's any chance that his racquet change affects his stroke accuracy. From Prince to the others, he couldn't get away with typical paint-job like many players do. It's not like that he's never used other ones before and he played great with this new stick in Doha though... :scratch:

Anyway really sad to see him struggling like this. :awww:

But not last week. The fact that he is fit, makes the loss against Paire last week even more pathetic.

what an amazing result for the game. Charisma wins over boredom, passion wins over money, excitement wins over blandness. Davydenko couldn't contain Gilles today. Simon doesn't give Denko a consistent pace to work off and likes to change up a lot which is a ball machines worst nightmare. Everything Denko does...Gilles does it better and when i say better i mean MUCH better. Davydenko was thrown of his game by the artistic Frenchmen and Simon has too much flair and nous. Simon is finally getting back to his 2008 top 10 form and it's a joy to see. Classy/great personality as well as a great game to watch, the Frenchmen really has it all. I'm finally retaining my view that Simon is a dark horse for the grand slams. Simon is in another league. Davydenko is DONE :D

Simon didn't look fit and saying "he's the better nowadays" means nothing as they both played crap, just Simon a little bit less crap in second part of the match.

Both played great at some time in the beginning of the year.

Simon had Torticolis last week in Rotterdam. The tournament organisers agreed for him to play Paire on the Wednesday, he lost. He still wasn't fully over it for Marseille, and considered pulling out, but he was allowed to play his first match on wednesday to give him time to recover. He won.

This is why Nadal fans are so dislikeable- despite being fans of the current best player in the world, they're SO BITTER it's unbelievable. Really sad. It's like a Man United fan laughing at a Tranmere Rovers defeat.

Nadaltards being morons in a Davydenko thread, expected.

Kolya is a shadow of his former self, simple as that. Once in form, he is a true asset to the tour. I'd love to see him bounce back, but I'm not sure he will...
