    Davydenko will be remembered as one of the best Open Era players, who didn’t reach a Grand Slam final. He was the closest to achieve it in his 1st out of 4 semifinals, at the French Open 2005, when he lost to Mariano Puerta (3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 4-6, 4-6) despite a 4:2 lead in the decider. The Argentinian was under the influence of illegal substances…
    Davydenko will be also remembered as one of few players to have a positive H2H record against Rafael Nadal (6-5), and what’s more important, the Russian beat the Spaniard en route to 3 of his 4 biggest titles | Miami ’08, Shanghai & London ’09 |. Here are my stats of two most dramatic matches between them:

    Rome 2007: Nadal d. Davydenko 7-6(3), 6-7(8), 6-4… 244 points played… 3 hours 39 minutes
    Doha 2010: Davydenko d. Nadal 0-6, 7-6(8), 6-4… 190 points played… 2 hours 43 minutes
