Roger Federer will aim to get revenge on Nikolay Davydenko in the Qatar Open semi-finals.
Davydenko scored a famous victory over Federer in the semi-finals of the ATP Tour World Finals back in November. It was an important psychological boost for Davydenko who has had his path blocked by Federer so many times in major tournaments. It was his first win over Federer in thirteen matches.
Davydenko said at the start of the week that he doubted how far he could go in the tournament after his off season training had been offset by illness. However it has not really appeared to affect him and he was at his gritty best on Thursday to edge a tight 7-6, 7-6 win over Ivo Karlovic.
Federer was tested too, dropping a set in a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 win over the talented Ernests Gulbis.
