Despite falling well out of the Top 10, Nikolay Davydenko seems to be in good spirits. The Russian veteran who finished five times in the Top 10, says he doesn’t feel the same pressure that he use to when he was a top guy on the tour.

“Too many stress to be top 10,” Davydenko to the Dubai media yesterday after an upset win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. “You know, you need to always to defending. You have a little bit more pressure like always press to pushing you. You’re top 10, why you losing first round, second round? Me not anymore. I have no pressure from you. I just try to explain some bullshit.”

Davydenko will be feeling that pressure tomorrow when he goes up against former No. 1 Roger Federer in the quarterfinals. And he admits that now at 31 some days he just doesn’t have it.

“Always try to find solution, always try to find my game and feeling, Wow, I can now do my best tennis,” he said. “One day I play good. Next day I coming and I play like 300‑year‑old. I just I don’t know.”

Well … you just did it, you explained it;)


Giles Says:

“Donut Dave” ( as per Brad Gilbert) still plays some good tennis!


Humble Rafa Says:

Great Davy,

I appreciate your honesty. People like us are rare in our business. Don’t worry about these chicken heads, your legacy is written in stone. And it’s a good one.

Quick Question: Are you playing the Bet-At-Home Open this year?


The Great Davy Says:

Humble Rafa,

I always open Bet-At-Home.


the_mind_reels Says:

I’ve always respected Davydenko for his game — particularly how well he takes the ball early and controls from the baseline — but that guy is not who I would want acting as my PR spokesperson.

“One day I play good. Next day I coming and I play like 300‑year‑old.”

LOL, that’s about right savvy Davy.


Humble Rafa Says:

I am now only good enough to take 2 games each set against an ancient player.


Chichiback Says:

He is very honest. Love his baby. Keep healthy Nikolay.
