I don't know what happened in that first set, but Youzhny turned it around quickly.

And if the second rubber goes the way it looks like it's going to right now, Russia will be up 2-0 after day 1.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

I was shocked after the 1st set.

So Nole was out with that stomach bug or whatever it was? Bad luck for the Serbs.

I'm disappointed that Djokovic could not play this match. I didn't see the match but I guess the first set was only a consequence of Misha's dirty mind. He knew that he has the match in the pocket and lost concentration at the beginning.

Well the 2nd rubber has turned around a bit, so Serbia may need not worry at all...

Snowwyy, the girl in your avatar looks like Nadal's sister. Is that you?

What do you men by Misha's dirty mind? He didn't do anything wrong. he can be flakey at times - but he is not a sneaky player or anything.

I like a lot of players.

I mean that he had won this match in his mind before the match started. Therefore he lost easily the first set. I think it's tough to give 100 % concentration when on the other side of the net stands a man No. 689 in the world who hasn't played an ATP-match since April 2007

Thankfully Misha recovered following that disastrous opening set. Zimonjic deserves a lot of credit for winning a set, considering he was facing an opponent who is ranked 681 places above him, and the fact that this was his first competitive singles match since Munich last year.

Okay- I understand now and agree he lost concentration. I was just confused by the word "dirty" which to me had a very negative connotation.

He was thinking about supermodels?
