Didn't Tommy "Time-Out" Haas call him a ball machine in his interview?

By pushing it beyond its tolerance, naturally.

Davydenko will be forced into risky tennis to prevent Federer from
finishing points is what I suspect.

Well, Fed used to beat the Aussie ball machine, Hewitt, on a regular
basis by simply going for lines, corners, and winners. Davy needs to
hit deeper and harder and with more spin to prevent the same thing from
happening to him.

Notice when Blake did not blast the ball and simply hit neutral shots,
Fed jumped all over those in a fraction of a second. Blake was
compelled to hit big shots and make a ton of errors because Fed gave
him no choice.

precisely.. that's what I was trying to say before.  Blake's strategy
wasn't bad at all - he had to go for a lot, but I think there is a fine
line between going for too much and playing too conservatively.

A line which only Nadal walks on -- of course, Nadal's results these
days have not been as great so he may have lost his way ;)

Nadal was lucky for a long time but sooner or later all those shots
that always fell just in are starting to fall just out. The kid needs
to reset and take a couple years to learn how to play tennis.

So how many players have reached 2 slam finals and won 1 this year? And
a slam QF is nothing to be ashamed of, no?

I fully expect Federer to win, but it will be an interesting encounter due
to Nikolai's near-miss in Australia.

The fun match should be Roddick v Youzhny. Should be a lot of all-court
tennis, similar to their AO match years ago.

But just like Jankovic was the Russian killer and folded to a non-Russian
today, I think the same will happen with Spanish-killer Youzhny and he'll
falter against Roddick.

Youzhny in this form would be a fun final against Federer -- but not for NY.

All that said, I really wish Haas could have wrapped up Shrinkydenk in three
sets and marched on.

And Blake is actually *quicker* than Denko.. and speed happens to be
Denko's only weapon.

The Wimbledon draw gifted him 1 of those 2 finals. Hell with that W
draw Whisper could have made the final.

As for the QF well it was almost as bad. Who did he play ? Nobody and
then he loses to #54 geez.

Meanwhile Fed has made 4 slam finals this year and won 3....oops
that's not until Sunday. Oh wait, he won 2 last year too and 3 the
year before and 9 of the last 14.

I know I should not point this out because nadal is the de'facto #1
afterall <grin>.
