Roger stunned by Davydenko

28.11.2009 | Tennis

Roger suffered a 2-6, 6-4, 5-7 defeat to Nikolay Davydenko in today's semi-final at the ATP World Tour Finals.


Roger had never lost against the Russian in their 12 previous matches. But number 13 proved unlucky for our champ today. After having won the title at the Finals four times in five attempts between 2003 and 2007, his quest was stopped in the semi-final this year.


Davydenko produced a strong performance, taking a fast lead in the first set, breaking Roger's serve twice in the first five games, as Roger struggled to find his best form. But our number one recovered in the second set to level the match and take it into a decider. Tied at 5-5 in the final set, the Russian managed to hold Roger's high level and scored a break in the very last moment. Roger came close in the last game when he fought back to 30:30 from 0:30, but Davydenko eventually battled through his final service game to win the match.

"returnoftheking" I 100% agree with you that the era of Federer was free of tough players such as DelPotro, a strong Davidenko, a mature Nadal, or stubborn Murray. If he do not give himself STRENGTH, he will eventually

For realize the real greatness of Roger Federer, he should play against himself, and see who is the winner.
That guy will be the greatest tennis player.

Roger: No podemos esperar que ganes todos los torneos, lo que has hecho este año es excelente: Ganar Roland Garros y romper el record de Sampras te confirman una vez mas como el mas grande de la historia del tenis.
Dos grandes mas el proximo año seria fa

Thought it was interesting Switzerland got paired with Spain in group H at the soccer 2010 World Cup draw. It so made me think of Federer vs. Nadal. Wonder what Roger thinks of that!
