    Fresh off a double-breadstick of Alexandr Dolgopolov, Davydenko maintained his momentum at the Western & Southern Open with a convincing second-round win over Mayer on Wednesday afternoon. The 31-year-old Russian held all nine of his service games to prevail in one hour and 11 minutes.

    A rare tricky spot for Davydenko came when he was serving for the match at 5-3 in the second but he came up with a blistering forehand winner down break point. The world No. 50 closed things out two points later to book his spot alongside Novak Djokovic in the third round.

    Pablo Andujar d. (7) Janko Tipsarevic 6-4, 4-1, retired

    Tipsarevic led 4-2 in the first set but lost eight of the next nine games and then retired against Andujar on Wednesday in Cincinnati. It ended after one hour and 10 minutes, with the eighth-ranked Serb citing a heat-related illness.

    Tipsarevic had won 19 of 22 first-serve points at the time, but his second delivery was getting dominated (15 of those 22 points won by his opponent). Andujar held seven of eight service games and a final hold at 3-1 led to Tipsarevic's calling it quits. Next up for the 40th-ranked Spaniard is Marin Cilic, a winner over Jesse Levine.

Davydenko is dangerous.

Tipsarevic has been living on the colurts for over two months, so I'm not surprised he had o retire. He needs to learn to pace himself, but he is making the same mistakes a lot of players do when they get into the Top 10. They play a lot to move up higher, and then their bodies tell them that they need to take a break.
