Nadal Falters; Federer Floats

Rafa Nadal was upended by Nikolay Davydenko, who is coached by his brother, Eduard, and was last year’s titlist at the Qatar Open, 6-3, 6-2.  According to atptour.com, Nadal was ailing from a fever all week in Doha.  Hopefully, he will be healthy for the Australian Open 2011.  Nadal did manage to claim the doubles title with partner, Marc Lopez to lighten the sting.

Roger Federer prevailed in his lighter-than-air style over a game Jo-Willie Tsonga 6-3, 7-6(2).  Fed was never broken and looks good going into the first final of 2011 according to atptour.com.
