Just after the quarterfinal, Kubot said he rates US Open's 3rd round as the better result than Belgrade's semifinal. In both cases he had to win 5 matches but he's right, at the US Open he had won two 5-setters so it was more difficult than what he's done so far in Serbia.
Kubot's road to the 3rd round of US Open '06:
1q Evans 6-1 6-2
2q Troicki 7-5 6-3
3q Wessels 7-6(3) 6-4
1R Vliegen 2-6 6-1 6-4 1-6 6-3
2R Okun 7-6(7) 6-4 2-6 2-6 6-4
3R Davydenko 4-6 1-6 1-6
