YESSS! P. Davydenko also has a lovely game, although it's quite different from his uncle's.

Second set looked like an incredible chokefest from live scoreboard.

Davydenko had MP on his own serve having not been broken all match then this:

Good job! Is this his maiden ATP main draw victory? If so, then it's perhaps understandable his getting nervous when within touching distance.

Unless I'm mistaken, this means Davy 2 gets an ATP main draw win on his first effort after failing to ever win a Challenger match despite qualifying many times.

so with qualifying and now winning philip will vault up to around world # 500

if he were to pull off the upset and take out giraldo he'd end up at around # 430

Not the first effort. He played Kuala Lumpur in 2012. So 1-1 on ATP MD level and 0-3 on Challenger MD level.

philip is no mug. he's grossly under ranked. if he wasnt so ridiculously stubborn about playing futures and smaller tournaments until recently and he had had a better serve he'd be top 100 or close to it by now. he has a nice game. he's only 21 too so there's still lots of time for him to have a decent career

i hope he does and i hope davy either coaches him or sticks around in some way.

Well, he's more top 300 than top 20 but I think with improvements the guy could be a staple in 250s and the latter stages of Challengers. When I last watched him his groundstrokes were great- more spin than Nikolay and a great one handed backhand- but his serve was utterly pathetic and he was awful on big points. The player he is right now is probably 250-300ish. If he improves some areas of his game he could be 100-150ish.
