Fantastic match between Delpo and Davydenko.

Davydenko saves 2 set points and serving for a tie-break.

Davy showing excellent form after a long time and is a joy to watch. Delpo firing on all cylinders.

And with some more baseline brilliance, Davy scrapes into a tie-break

Can't watch it now but I will later watch a recording. Very nice match up indeed. Davy is a tough matchup indoors.

Story of Davy's life.... Sad

On another note, I am surprised Davy being such a hard-core baseliner does not play more angles with his forehand. It would really help him againse players like Delpo.

Explains NOle's excellent H2H with Delpo.
