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.

This year's WTF London was great as it had two tropheys for two most deserved winners. Roger totally deserved his year-end No.1 trophey and Davydenko also well deserved to win this WYF 2009. I think Roger, like many people, was glad that Davydenko won the

A phenomenal year to be in every Grand Slam final and be so close to taking them all ... no other player on tour could aspire to that right now.

With Grand Slams being 5 setters, it figures that players who didn't last the distance on each of the fortn
