Revenge in a week. It was 2-6 6-7(5) in Cincy.
Or Kolya conserves his strength for the USO?

Anyway, good job, Sergiy!

Pretty simple match. Stakhovsky served well, Davydenko doesn't have a good serve, and Stakhovsky was simply the more solid player. I've pretty much given up on seeing Davydenko be more than a 30-60 player, so these results aren't a surprise. The Ukranian looked very focused, probably because he's defending title points.

Good win in the end for him.

The golden law of Stakhovsky is put into effect now. Once he reaches a qf, he goes into god mode and wins the tournament.

I stand corrected. He's got a tough one next round, but they are both killing each other at the moment so maybe he can get into the sf against dolgo.

Davydenko is done. Pretty sad, when he retires no one will care or remember.

I had forgotten what an awful poster you are, thanks for reminding me. :hatoff:

Also, I'm pretty sure some people will at least remember this match:

Yeah, that's what happens if you suffer from severe dementia. :hatoff: :stupid:

A reasonable case can be made that at this time, Davydenko was the best player on the planet. His previous 6 months were really impressive:

Won WTF, beating Del Potro (US Open champ), Fed, Sod, Nadal.
Won Shanghai masters, beating Nadal and Djokovic
Won KL (ok a 250, but he still beat Monf, Sod, Verdasco in the process)

Before that he won Hamburg and Umag, but played too much and injured himself, had to retire at the US Open.

I agree with you, he was in awesome form. And I thought he would tear Federer apart after he won that first set in Melbourne. What an opportunity he had in that slam... :sad:

Yeah, he had Fed, should have finished the job.

Previous round was too much, 5 sets with Verdasco. Always with Davydenko that was the problem at slams, one long match and the clock is ticking on his gas tank for the tournament.

Tsonga after that, Murray in the final. Still a tough ask, but who knows what he might have managed having beaten Fed for the first time, and in such a big match.

It wouldn't have been for the 1st time, he's beaten him the two last times they met before AO 2010 (namely WTF 09, Doha 10) ;)
