Re: *** 2009 Davydenko Cheering Thread ***
Kolya beat Ferrer 75 76(2)
He was a bit off in the first set and couldn't use his many (around 8) bps at all while Ferrer got a break with Kolya serving a df on the start of the game and the end of the game... He was down 2-4 had bp, but didn't convert and then he held to 3-5 where he finally broke back with an inside-in fh winner. He then held and broke once more - this time much more comfortably - and then served out the set.
He then broke again with a drivevolley fh winner, but got broken right back. Then Ferrer was a bit more solid and Kolya didn't attack as much anymore and they just went on rallying untill Ferrer found himself serving for the set at 5-3, but Nikolay broke again at the right moment again and then saved a SP with an ace and went on holding to 5-5.
Kolya hit some great shots to go up 0030 on Ferrer's serve, but then David still managed to hold and Kolya held as well.
In the TB Nikolay played the best tennis of the entire match. He got a minibreak and held his two serves and then got another minibreak to go up 4-0. Ferrer then won a point and Kolya won only one of his 2 service points to go up 5-2. From there he hit a bh dtl winner return and forced Ferrer into error on the next shot to win the match
