Tonight's Big Match

I'm looking forward to the Roger vs Nikolay match tonight. It should be a nailbiter! Davydenko has won the last two matches he's played against Roger. This is the guys' Head to Head playing record. They have played only three times in the past two years, and two of those matches have been in the past few months.

Davydenko-Federer Set For QF Clash
Nikolay Davydenko, who has beaten Roger Federer in their pair's two recent meetings at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in November and at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open earlier this month, goes into Wednesday's quarter-final trailing the five-time ATP World Tour Champion 2-12 overall in their head-to-head series. (Oz Open)

 
Closer to the match (around 9 p.m. EST... Order of Play) if you want to see it the links will show up on this page, so you can watch it via a livestream on your computer (you might have to enable pop-ups).

I wonder that now, since this is a slam, Roger will approach playing DavyD differently? I think he was taken by surprise at how much DavyD has improved his aggressive tennis style and all-around game and fitness. I really admire Davydenko and like his rise in level...but I want Roger to win! (This match will also determine if Roger keeps his No. 1 position in the ATP tennis rankings.)

And a youtube video of them playing in 2006:
