Kolya Davydenko was the first top casualty at this year’s Wimbledon Championships with his straight set (4-6, 4-6, 4-6) loss to the 116th-ranked Benjamin Becker. It’s really sad that his titles in Miami and Warsaw were nowhere to be found in any of the post-match articles. Instead, the questions still focused on the match-fixing scandal that has rocked the Davydenko world for a very long time.
“It is like a bad dream. Not one day but months,” he says of the experience.
Too bad he bowed out early (but really, apart from his 4th round appearance last year, Kolya has lost in the first round of Wimbledon five of the last seven years), because that Airness polo he wore is the best and cleanest thing I’ve seen come out of the French company’s performance collection so far this year.
By the way, I heard from a colleague that Nadia Petrova, a former Airness beneficiary, was seen at Wimbledon wearing EleVen. Can anyone confirm with pics?
