Simon had 7 bp being 3-2 up in the third. didn't convert. Simon had 4 more bp being 4-3 down in the third. misha saved them all. interesting, during a long nervous 7-bp game on youzhny's serve, a lady in the crowd fainted and they needed to stop for 5 mins.
Youzhny played aggressively throughout; his shot selection most of the time was impeccable. The things confidence does to your game. Loved how he took matters into his own hands when saving 11/11 BPs in the second set, many times approaching the net and showing a lot of variety. He's a joy to watch.
