Default Davy's 2013

Here is the thread about our Nikolay in 2013!

Those were the previous five questions in the end of 2011:
1- Do you think he still has it in him and can get to TOP 10?
2- Do you think he can keep himself in top 50 till the end of the year ?
3- Does he will retire in the end of 2012 ?
4- Can he prolong his streak with at least one title in 2012?
5- Can he go to at least 4rd round in a GS ? he haven't been there since AO in 2010 infact only one 3rd round for 2 whole years ..... ?

Answers:
1-Obviously no... although he challenged TOP 10 players in his matches
2-Yes 2011 Y.E. ranking 41 ----- 2012 Y.E. ranking 44
3-No... He said that he's a happy top-50 player
4-No... The streak lasted from 2003 to 2011 (9 consecutive years)
5-No... Since 2010 AO (11 GSs) he has: 1 N/A | 5 1R | 4 2R | 1 3R |

Now i want to discuss with you those questions in the end of 2012:
1-Can he at least once beat a top 10 player?
2-Will he remain in top-50 in the end of 2013?
3-Does he will retire during 2013 or in the end of the year?
4-Will he reach fourth round in a slam ?
5-Can he beat Nadal in 2013?

My opinion:
1-Yes he can and will beat 3 times a top 10 player !
2-Yes he will end in top 30!
3-He will retire in the end of 2013 i'm 100% sure!
4-Yes he will reach 2R AO | 3R FO | 1R WO | 4R UO !
5-Yes he can if they play on hard court! Thus ending 7-5 vs Nadal.

And last but not least
Have a nice and cozy winter with a lot of smiles !

my answers:

1. he's already proven this year that he can still beat top 10 opponents when he took down isner and had tsonga and fish on the ropes. So my answer is yes, definately

2. I hope so. He's still got game its just about confidence for him. I think he can, yeah

3. will he retire at the end of 2013? im not sure. Rmember that davy said that he will only play as long as he can get into masters main draws direclty. If he's in a position where he cant at the end of the year i bet he will. if he is ranked inside the top 30 or even top 20(which i still think he can make) then he'll keep going.

4. well he really should have made the 4th round at the US this year, its just a shame he had no serve or he would have taken out fish easily. I think he can, he'll just need some luck

5.why does that matter?

Default Re: Davy's 2013

he's got a really good draw in doha

R1 - Hanescu (3-0 in H2H)

R2 - Bolelli (3-0 H2H) or Gimeno traver( 1-1 H2H)

QF - likely lopez ( H2H 2-4 but he's won the last 2) or chardy (H2H 1-1)

sf - probably ferrer in the semi ( h2h 3-2)

he can definately make the final here and there arent to many guys i would say he has no chance against in the final

he has to take advantage of this draw.

Default Re: Davy's 2013

great stats for the match. very good serve percentage, do boule faults and saved every break point against him. Also had a good winning percentage off his second serve and fantqastic break point conversion. Yeah i know its against hanescu but given the way that he has struggled against even the players he's owned before this is a great sign

if he can keep that up even against ferrer then i think he might have a good season

DOHA: Former champion Nikolay Davydenko of Russia yesterday crushed Romania’s Victor Hanescu in straight sets to launch his 2013 campaign on a winning note at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open.

Davydenko, the 2010 Qatar Open champion and 2011 runner-up, won 6-2, 6-3 in just 75 minutes. Yesterday’s easy win allowed the ‘grumpy-looking’ Russian to remain perfect against Hanescu, improving to 4-0 against the Romanian.

...(cut out other players' results)...

Davydenko said he did not not enjoy playing on New Year’s eve. “We’re playing in 2012. I really don’t enjoy playing on 31st. But anyway, I will enjoy not playing tomorrow (today),” the Russian said.

“I can really celebrate my party tonight and sleep and get ready to play on (January) 2nd,” Davydenko added yesterday after his easy win.

“I (am) really happy, you know, to win today’s match,” he said. The Russian said he has the fire to push himself for tennis glory in the 2013 season.

“I want to try to win next season, to play well again and keep my concentration,” he said.

“I’m not so young. Maybe I have two more years (on the Tour), maybe one more year,” he explained.

“I did not play well last season because I wasn’t very fit (but) I am still top 50,” Davydenko said.

“That’s was I need to think about that if there’s no injury, and if I can really concentrate well for my matches and during my practice (session), then maybe I can be top 20 (again). We will see what happens at the end of the new season,” Davydenko said.

Default Re: Davy's 2013

I can add additional info from the ATP site
"Last season, I told everyone from my family and my brother, 'I will push myself,'" said the 31 year old. "I want to again. I want to try [this] season to play again and practise concentration, try to do [what] I can, because I'm already not so young. Maybe I have two more years, maybe one more year."

sooo he is serious about it !

they don't seem to ask him anything about his daughter. I understand if he wants to keep his personal life private, but I think it's kind of strange, not even any questions about if his life/training/schedule is different.
