Nikolay Davydenko has joined his Russian Davis Cup team mate Marat Safin in criticising the way Wimbledon is run.

“Wimbledon is the world’s most boring tournament,” Davydenko told the Sovietsky Sport newspaper. “There’s hardly anything to do apart from tennis. You constantly find yourself yawning, there’s no entertainment here.”

The world No 4 has never found himself at ease on the slick grass courts at the All England Club, failing to progress beyond the second round in his five previous visits to London.

“We’re staying in the city centre, so it’s a bit better,” said the Russian, who has this year reached the last 32 for the first time.

“If we rented a house near Wimbledon it would have been a total bore. There’s absolutely nothing to do besides tennis.”
