Default Davydenko: Will he ever win a Slam?



It amazes me how much alike Nicolay Davydenko and Elena Dementieva are. They both have a clean, precise and powerful quality to their groundstrokes. Of course Davydenko serves better. The most important similarity is that they're both top players who have yet to win a Slam. I still have hope for Lena winning a Slam. If Mauresmo finally won some, then Lena can do it. I'm a huge Lena fan, so... you get the picture. And I'm a huge fan of Davydenko's game. What do you think is preventing Davydenko from winning a Slam or at least reaching a Slam final? I think Federer is one major reason. If Davy hadn't played Fed in the US Open semis, I think Davydenko would have had a better chance of defeating another player.

Why not? If even Roddick can do it...

Extremely little chance, although probably a lot more than Ljubicic.

Default Re: Davydenko: Will he ever win a Slam?

Hmm.... Seen Davydenko's record against Roddick? I don't think he'd have stood a great chance had he got through to that US Open final. The problem is, there are people who vary the game better than him on hardcourt, there are people who can outlast him with greater topspin on clay, and he's no use whatsoever on grass. I also think that toiling hard to win Sopot and then flying all the way over the Atlantic to lose first round at two Masters events isn't a great way to build confidence in yourself as a top player who wins matches week in and week out at the required tournies; I know he still had a good run at the US Open, and usually does produce the goods at the Slams, but these first-round losses at other events must hinder his self-belief somewhat.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

i would say much less. Ljubicic can get hot and serve crazy for in 2nd week, but both has less than 5% of a chance.

I'm judging it by the basis of each players slam performances. And at least Davydenko gets to the second week occasionally

It is not impossible but he would need the draw to open up like the Red Sea did when Moses crossed.
