With his latest injury it looks like davy's season might be over now. He's got a QF to defend in paris and if he cant play that he'll drop out of the top 50. He has said in an interview that once his ranking gets to the point where he cant get into masters directly that he will retire.

It seemed like davy was getting his game and confidence back before the hip injury, which makes the timing even worse.

do you think davy will call it quits this year or will he play for a while next year and try and get his ranking back up again and if he cant retire during the season next year?

I feel his retirement isn't far off. Which of course is a great loss for the sport. :sad: But maybe he'll try one more year.

I think most players want to quit on their own terms. Not because of injury. So I think he will try to get back

:sad: Yep, I think Davydenko's retirement is near, but not yet this year - pretty sure he'll try to come back once more, but if he fails in doing so badly, with which I mean not getting any decent wins anymore, he'll most definitely call it quits somewhere during 2012.
I can ony hope I'm totally wrong about this, as it would mean the end of the career of one of the most endearing, entertaining, and funny guys around on the tour for over the past ten years...

No and hopefully he'll retire. A player with zero charisma, robotic groundies and no hair.

if you dont want him back fine but there's no reason to launch a personal attack on him every time you post something about him. Besides if yopu really have that much of a problem with baldness what are you going to do when nadal loses his hair in a few years time?

He was being sarcastic in a friendly way, but part the part about lacking charisma is very true though.

He competes for money, not for the glory of the sport.

Perhaps there was a time earlier in his career where he did care, about after his shady behavior (i.e. match-fixing), I've lost respect in him.

Spot on.

He doesn't respect the sport that gave him everything including his trophy wife. He only plays for money. He fixed in the past. He failed in slams despite his supposed talent. He is overrated and his game is predictable and mechanical.

His only "fans" are Nadal haters, simple as that.

You only hate him because his H2H vs Nadal is 6-4, stop bullshitting.

Also, "predictable game"? And this comes from a Nadal fan? Davydenko has a rare game, no one takes the ball as early as him nowadays. He may not be strong mentally but that's hardly a reason to hate him. Plus, you've obviously not seen any interviews with him or his wife since they're quite a bit more charismatic than your Spartan hero and his militant family.

:facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Kind advice: look in the mirror - as it is YOU who seems to 'hate' any player that beats Rafa. Guess what, true tennis fans do not 'hate' a player that manages to beat one's favourite once in a while, but rather appreciate the guy for such a great achievement. Shouldn't be that hard.

topspin doctor - you ain't got a thing nice to say about any player. Everyone is a 'mug' or a 'clown'. Including Nadal when he loses to one of these mugs and clowns that the whole ATP tour supposedly consists of. Pick another sport seeing as you hate tennis so clearly.
