    Default Nadal badly beaten by Davydenko in Qatar semis

    Rafael Nadal's surprisingly inconsistent start to 2011 continued on Friday as he lost a hugely one-sided semi-final to Nikolay Davydenko at the Qatar Open.

    Nadal raised more than the odd eyebrow when he dropped a set 6-0 during Wednesday's victory over Lukas Lacko, only the 10th time he has been whitewashed in 575 matches. He narrowly avoided the ignominy of a repeat against Davydenko, despite the Russian serving at 5-0 in the second, but Nadal nevertheless had no answer to his opponent in a 6-3 6-2 defeat.

    Both players broke in an entertaining first set, but it was Davydenko who repeated the feat as Nadal's first serve proved surprisingly penetrable. The world No. 1 won only half of the points on his opening service throughout the set, frequently struggling to take control from the baseline.

    Davydenko was hardly firing down aces, hitting five in the contest, but he continued to show his own game had returned to its previous level following a tough run of form upon his return from a wrist injury. Nadal was broken three times in the second set as Davydenko raced to a 5-0 advantage, only for the Russian to then suffer his trademark nerves with the finishing line in sight.

    Nadal broke back for 5-2, and he truly threatened a miraculous comeback when Davydenko served at 0-40 in his next service game. However, the underdog regained his composure to clinch the match, denying the Doha crowd a final between Nadal and Roger Federer.

    Second seed Federer is through to his first final of the year after beating France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 7-6(2). The Swiss maestro, who holds a special affection for the tournament having won it in 2005 and 2006, looked untroubled as he safely negotiated the first set thanks to a single break of serve.

    Tsonga rallied in the second, but the set went to a tiebreak as neither player managed to make a breakthrough. Federer appears to thrive in pressure situations and he found another level to complete a dominant win.

    At the Brisbane International, top seed Robin Soderling was too hot to handle for qualifier Matthew Ebden. Soderling, boosted by a 71% first-serve success rate, broke his opponent three times and threw down nine aces for good measure en route to a 6-3 6-2 win.

    Radek Stepanek joined Soderling in the last four after cruising past seventh seed Florian Mayer 6-3 6-3.

    Tomas Berdych took his recent record against players ranked outside the top 100 to played 20, won 20 after dispatching Blaz Kavcic with consummate ease at the Aircel Chennai Open in India.

    Berdych has been in irresistible form since the turn of the year and five breaks of serve helped set up a 6-3 6-3 triumph. Xavier Malisse wasted little time in joining Berdych in the semi-finals, thrashing Bjorn Phau 6-0 6-2 in a little over an hour, and the pair were later joined by Stanislas Wawrinka and Janko Tipsarevic.
