Make your threads about the final here
how am i supposed to make a thread don't you mean post? haha im kidding
anyways it seems daavydenko seems to show up always at doha nikolay in 2
I heard Davy is playing well?? I don't believe it! Nonsense!
Davy loves Doha. Didn't he beat Fed there?
In 2010, and then proceeded to beat Nadal 0-6, 7-6 ( 8 ), 6-4
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.
Was that the one where he saved a MP ?
Davie is a strange one
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?
Davy has a great finals record I believe?
Davy loves this place.
Who can tell what goes through a French player's mind during a tennis match?
One of the best I think, something like 20-5.
It's 21-6 according to wikipedia.
8-2 on hardcourt, only losing to Federer and Djokovic.
Gasquet is warned!
I wonder which Federer is the best? Gasquet, Federer or Dimitrov?
nobody watching the davy gasky match?
Davy up early break 2-0
Early break for Davvy. If he can keep it up he'll win in straights.
davydenko hitting his fh with bad intentions
Getting some great angles with his groundstrokes.
Immense backhand down the line at break point.
that bhdtl davy hit was so sexy.
and yeah natf, davy findin some slick angles.
his tennis is really sexy right now
Anyone got a good stream
That's what I'm using.
holy crap what...oh, its out
but still, damn
nice variation from gasquet, using S&V
thanks Natf for the stream!
My god robbie koening just pulled off the South African Diamond cutter reference WOOOH!
No worries axel enjoy the match!
enjoyable tennis being played so far
interesting how nikolay hasn't been broken all tournament my god
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.
If only Davvy could play this way consistantly in best 3 out of 5 set matches...
Davy in choke mode.
You were saying? :twisted:
On the right track so far.
31 year old weak era player beating on strong era top 10 player...
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.
