Strange match.

Davydenko got a code violation for lack of effort in the 3rd set

Then he got into a long argument about whether or not he needed the doctor and why he wasn't really trying.

Totally bizarre.

It hasn't done much to clear his reputation for unusual match resolutions, to put it politely.

Would he really be THAT stupid????? I mean, that is almost impossible to believe.....if he'd be so stupid to not only do it but make it so obvious, i really really hope he gets what he deserves.

I think the code violation was probably based on prejudice and bad reputation. He wasn't physically right after winning Moscow. There's no way he would purposely lose a match with all the eyes and pressure on him.

He may have been involved in some dodgy matches, but I fear a lynch mob mentality is developing against him.

Re: Cilic def. Davydenko 1-6 7-5 6-1

I started a thread asking what Davy and the Umpire were arguing about. A couple of people said the umpire told him off for not making an effort. If Davy was then he was being very stupid.

Any ideas why my thread was deleted - there were no bad/rude posts?

probably b/c it was a discussion of a match as it was going on, which is against the rules for GM

By the way this match was NOT covered by the betfair (where the Vassallo match betting odds caused uproar) so there were probably no suspect betting odds.

Re: Cilic def. Davydenko 1-6 7-5 6-1

The umpire gave him a code violation for "lack of best effort" ie pretty much accusing him of tanking.

He argued, the umpire cited a lot of double faults, Davydenko said sometimes he does that, like in the Moscow final, umpire said yeah but you served 4 in like 2 games and only 1 the whole second set, plus you weren't trying to return Cilic's serve very hard, Davydenko's all like I have problems, umpire said I asked you if you were okay a couple of games ago and you said it was nothing, why haven't you called the doctor, then Davydenko attempted to call the doctor then, claiming rather weakly he had pain in his legs. Umpire wouldn't have it, they argue some more, umpire's had enough and say resume play, Davydenko wants the doctor, umpire says not now, at the next change of ends ask them if you want him, play resumes. Davydenko does not call for the doctor at the change of ends.

I watched the match from the end of the 2nd set, PMK was utter crap but that happens to him occassionaly, he just had to catch that plane to Paris. It was a semi-tank, he didn't really give a crap about this match.

However, a tank is different than a fix.
