Qtr. Finals - Federer vs some guy
coming up next!

Noelle 01-24-2006 11:35 PM

:lol: It's Nikolay Davydenko. He's not just some guy; he made the FO semifinal last year playing through several 5-set matches. :) He also qualified for TMC without having to rely on other players' withdrawals, I think.

Whatever Noelle. :p

lol I love your reason for editing your first post :)

Federer should take this one pretty easily. I'd be very surprised if he dropped a set.

Davydenko is quality, but I don't think he has enough to challenge the Federer.

Noelle 01-24-2006 11:47 PM

Nikolay Davydenko also was in "Wimbledon". :lol:

Just kidding, but the lead actor Paul Bettany has the same look about him. :p

two swiss down and one to go.

can davydenko repeat what mauresmo and clijsters achieve?

Noelle 01-24-2006 11:57 PM

I highly doubt it.

"Do we want to see great players struggle?"

Noelle 01-25-2006 12:06 AM

LOL rilo. I guess you're viewing our Star Sports feed, and Alan Wilkins and Veejay Amritraj were talking about that.

Anyway, Federer now up 1-0, Davydenko to serve.

rilokiley 01-25-2006 12:10 AM

Yea I am watching that channel. Do you know if they cover almost all the matches for other slams? or do they just have a contract with AO?

two beautiful bh winner from Federer... now break point!

rilokiley 01-25-2006 12:15 AM

Somehow the noob somehow held his own serve I predict this is going to be a very easy match for Federer. I mean, very easy.

Noelle 01-25-2006 12:16 AM

Star Sports has a definite contract for the AO. With the rest of the tournaments, though, it's a bit iffy. Last year they covered AO and Wimbledon, but the FO and US Opens weren't covered by ESPN (Star Sports's parent company, I think) so they didn't cover those either. Negotiations for Wimbledon coverage haven't concluded yet because they don't list Wimbledon 2006 in the list of tennis programs on their official website.

Ah. Exactly the sentiment during the Fed v. Haas match.

Look what happened! Oy vey!

It's like a mini-apocalypse! You skipped class, Fed said the four-letter word, Haas accused Courier of youknowwhat.


Noelle 01-25-2006 12:28 AM

Davydenko is holding his own. I'm predicting Federer will step it up in the next game or so, though, to secure the break for the set. After all, one break is all he needs to get the set.

Noelle 01-25-2006 12:39 AM

Well, what do you know, I was correct in my prediction. Davydenko immediately broke back though.

Federer broke Davydenko at love to get the set.

rilokiley 01-25-2006 12:47 AM

here's a gold sticker for you, noelle. good job! :D

rilokiley 01-25-2006 12:54 AM

"Federer serving at only 51%...that's 5 out of 10 serves"
Seriously? I did not know that.

Federer is suckin'

Noelle 01-25-2006 12:54 AM

Harharhar. :D Anyway, Davydenko had a break point on Federer's serve, but it's now at deuce.

Federer bricked a few of his net points earlier in the set, I think.

rilokiley 01-25-2006 01:04 AM

suckin hard.

No, really... he is a lot better than this.

I've seen better college players... yay flame war!

rilokiley 01-25-2006 01:17 AM

Federer is the one having trouble holding his own serve in the 2nd set. 15-30!

beautiful lob from Devy... 30-40! set point
