    Wow, beating a clutch player like Nadal with that scoreline makes it even more amazing.

    Glad to see Davydenko playing well. The last I had seen him, he retired from a match after suffering from the service yips.

    Bookies have Davydenko as favourite, but fully expect Gasquet

    Gasquet actually shouted and fist pumped upon winning yesterday. I've never seem do this. He's playing much tougher these days with Piatti as his coach.

    How far behind the baseline will Gasquet be today?
    It will be very hard to beat Kolay from 5 to 8 feet back.

    A journalist should ask him why is stands back there. Is just a clay court habit?

    It's 21-6 according to wikipedia.

    8-2 on hardcourt, only losing to Federer and Djokovic.

    Gasquet is warned!

    Early break for Davvy. If he can keep it up he'll win in straights.

    someone in GPPDiscussion was lamenting what happened to davydenko.

    its safe to say his worries were premature.

    Gasquet is a joke, a nervous shivering wreck. Playing so far back, second serve getting wrecked.

    I don't know if Gasquet even reached top 10 in "strong" era.

    As for Ferrer, he had one of his best years in 2007 (reached USO SF and TMC final that year).

    Edit: Apparently Gasquet finished last year as #10 but he also finished 2007 as #8.

    Well he's number 10 right now. Although his career high was in 2007.

    Ferrer's 2012 was better than his 2007 though, wasn't it?

    Yeah I edited the post.

    How did he reach top 10 exactly? The only good result I remember from him last year was reaching Canada final.

    Apparently he had his career second highest number of wins last season. Probably general consistancy I guess.

    It seems so.

    Remember that match against Roddick in Wimbldeon QF in 2007 ? I lost count how many BH winners he hit, probably his best slam performance.

    What a return of serve!

    Yeah when his backhand is peaking it's quite something. He's given Murray probems a few times in the past too.

    The number of shanks Gasquet has hit because he is off balance trying to run a few meters further behind the baseline...maddening.

    Gasquet looks like he's given up.
