Nikolay Davydenko looking good

Nikolay Davydenko

Pironkova finally won a match – her first since July – thanks to a spluttering Pavlyuchenkova in Moscow. Revenge of sorts for Jankovic against Shvedova, Kleybanova spanked Rybarikova and Zvonareva cruised past Olaru.

Davy and Safin still haven’t played yet in Moscow so there’s not much to report. Kiefer came through qualifying only to retire against Granollers. 3rd seed Youzhny managed to avoid losing like 2nd Hanescu and 4th Hanescu. Will Davydenko dial it in after winning last week? The once awesome Janko Tipsarevic managed a win.

Bondarenko the Lesser crashed to Vinci in Luxembourg, Hercog won a match. Cornet took advantage of Lucky Loser Rezai, Peer thrashed Strycova, qualifier Flipkens dumped Radwanska the Lesser and a well-rested Clijsters beat up Shaughnessy. Will Clijsters manage to lose this week to avoid winning the title and forcing her to go to Bali?

Wozniacki has alarmed and confused many by retiring at a set and 5-0 up in Luxembourg. The suggestion is that she picked up an injury and wants to be right for Doha so she retired to allow her opponent to progress and not force a walkover in the next round. However some smarts are suggesting that her dad (and coach) was overheard telling her to retire at 5-0 when she was 3-0 and that the internet boards and betting forums picked up on this. More to come no doubt.

Rumours that Ernie and Monaco are involved in the Stockholm fracas.

Apparently Davydenko’s not good looking. Seriously who asks these questions?
