Yeah, he's only top ten in the world... no weapons...Defcon said:Was it AO where Fed had a tough time beating him - tb in 3rd set? Its possible my memory is bad and it was just 1 set. Davy Ducky has the sort of game that can trouble Fed. He doesn't rely on any weapons (doesn't have any) but will run around all day and doesn't miss much. Sort of like Nalby, except he isn't fat. But I don't think he can win more than a set.
Of course if Fed bothers to play his A game, his chances are more accurately described as slim and none.
While I agree with first part of your statement, Davydenko actually has a justified ranking having reached the quarters of 3 of the 4 slams so far this year, and the semis of 1(U.S Open). When you combine with last year he has reached 5 of his last 8 slam quarters, and 2 semis in that time. So actually, even if a reflection badly on todays mens game, his ranking in the top 6 is justified by his Grand Slam results, not just playing more events.obsessedtennisfandisorder said:Nadal's lefthanded!
Anyway...why the sudden love for Davy around the place?
Davy exactly the kind of reason people argue sampras era was better.
This guy wins loads of small tournaments and plays 35 tournys a year.
The rankings formulation need looking at..
