It might have been raining from the time I woke up until 5pm, but it wasn’t frustrating for me. On my day off, I got to train at the gym for one hour and practice on an indoor court for 90 minutes. For the players competing today, it was terrible… and a terrible day for fishing!

Yes, you’ve guessed it; I’ve been out on the lake again today and caught absolutely nothing! I blame it on the weather. I promise you it hasn’t always been that way. I once caught my father, Vladimir’s, nose with my hook, when casting the rod, at the age of six. There wasn’t any blood, but I cried because I was so scared! My mother and brother thought the whole incident was hilarious.

You see my father has always enjoyed leisurely pursuits and at the age of 59 he likes to relax and watch Russian television programmes. He worked in a factory until 10 years ago. He certainly is different to my mother, Tatjana, who lives her life at 500 miles per hour, never sits down for five minutes and - if you ever visit Portschach – could be your tour guide. In the three days we’ve been here, she has walked around every street and visited every historical monument. She has so much energy.

This week is quite unique to have my whole family here, so I haven’t spent a great deal of time on-site socializing with the players in the lounge and playing card games etc. Tonight we went to an Austrian restaurant. Although I haven’t signed many autographs this week, as Portschach is very, very quiet, I did hear the restaurant owner ringing up his friends and perhaps rival eateries to say he had “Davydenko in his restaurant.” The other funny thing that has happened during my short stay here is that half the people I talk to have asked me about the house I have supposedly bought in Portschach. Yes, it is a lovely and quiet place to be, but I can hand-on-heart say that I haven’t bought any property here.

Normally today I would have watched John Isner, my next opponent, compete but due to the weather I was unable to. We won’t be meeting until Thursday, so I’ll have another practice with Eduard and Philip before I face the big-serving American. I’m in a confident mood right now and well remember my win over John at Indian Wells in March. Like my dad, I’ve had a relaxing day today, so I am hoping the sky clears and I can practice outdoors tomorrow.

Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.

I had another day off from matches today and with better weather I was able to practice outdoors for 90 minutes, then I headed to the gym, enjoyed the sauna and a swim. As I haven’t caught anything in three days I decided I shouldn't go fishing, but I did finally pick up my laundry! Fresh clothes were needed.

It really has been a relaxing day, but with Eduard and Philip here to practice with they put me through my paces. Eduard has been my coach since I was 11 years old and when I turned professional in 1999 he started travelling with me. I have never contemplated hiring another coach; Eduard understands me, my life and style of play. After all, he is a good player himself so it isn’t a case that he picks up tennis balls and gives advice. He hones his own game hitting with me. He’s been tremendously supportive in tennis and in life.

Tomorrow I might possible play two matches in a day. For sure it will be tough, because if I win I’ll be back on the court inside 90 minutes. The good thing is I’m confident and if I do play two matches it will stand me in good stead for five set matches at Roland Garros next week. Rolf, my physio, worked on my muscles again today and got me into fighting shape. He’s far better as a physio than he is on computers: I had to help him install a web cam on his Skype today.

I’m a big fan of social networking sites and keep in contact with my Russian friends and fellow players such as Marat Safin, Igor Andreev and Dmitry Tursunov. I have my own laptop and my wife Irina has her own too. We don’t have Internet in our hotel room, so each night the hotel lobby turns into one big Internet ‘café’ or a players lounge. All the players can be seen huddled together surfing the net, chatting to friends and generally having fun. It was the same in Hamburg too.

You might have heard that there’s a big soccer game on tonight. It’s the Champions League final, Manchester United versus Chelsea in Moscow. As a Russian, a compatriot of Roman Abramovich and a fan of Andriy Shevchenko I am hoping that Chelsea win. Fingers crossed they do!

Wish me luck tomorrow!

Nikolay
