2002 Vienna 32 Hard (I) N.DAVYDENKO 3-6 2-6
2003 Davis Cup 2003 Clay (O) D.NALBANDIAN 6-2 6-2 7-5
2003 Barcelona 32 Clay (O) N.DAVYDENKO 3-6 6-7(4)

Davydenko leads 2-1 head to head, and beat Nalbo the only time they have met indoors so far.

However both have proved they can play well indoors, and this presents a valuable opportunity for one of these two to make the TMC final.

Now that Bandy has already reached SF, he can choke as he always does in the latest rounds of important tournaments. If it's not tomorrow, then it'll be on Sunday against Fed. But there's a high probability it will be against Davydonkey, since he's expected to win tomorrow.

hrmmmm... well, Davydenko isn't exactly known for his mental strength either.

don't forget his choke against Gasquet in Monte Carlo.

Nickolai will have a 4th seed of AO at stake.. Can't believe he could be seeded at AO ahead of Hewitt , Agassi and Safin.. :eek:

6-3 7-5 for David

I think everything is set up for Nalbandian to get to the final and that's when he often plays his worst tennis. A Federer-Nalbandian rematch in the final would be a good one.

How do you mean "both victories coming on clay". Not according to your post. :confused:

I expect Davydenko to win in 3 sets, people are underestimating him. The man is quite dangerous, he's been on a streak.
