JAMES  BLAKE      v     NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO

6-4 , 6-2  



James Blake earned another shot at beating Roger Federer by dismantling Nikolay Davydenko in the Semi-Finals of the Cincinnati Masters.
Blake won four straight games against Davydenko during an explosive shotmaking battle from the baseline to seemingly bust open the first set.

But Davydenko broke back to level the set and Blake had to earn another break to win the set.
Blake broke for 3-1 in the second set and later sealed the match with his fifth break with a spectacular crosscourt passing shot on the dead run to improve

his unbeaten record against Davydenko to 6-0.  Blake has never beaten Federer, currently 0-6, so it will be a true test for him in the Final.  Blake has been playing

fantastic tennis all week, and the fast courts suit his game perfectly, so this might be his best chance.





Hewitt overpowered and outhustled Carlos Moya on the hardcourts of Cincinnati.  Lleyton Hewitt used his new, more powerful racquet and his new strategy received from coach Tony Roche with

extreme confidence.  A superb performance!
