Nice win for Stakhovsky. He was two points away from defeat twice this week (Luczak, Baghdatis). He should make some progress in bigger tournaments, tricky player, his 4th ATP title despite he had negative w/l record before New Haven

Re: New Haven Final: Stakhovsky def Istomin 3-6 6-3 6-4

even though the scoreline was close, i never felt like istomin had a chance in this match after the break in the 2nd set. He seemed to have lost a lot of energy after that point.

Stakhovsky, when in form and filled with confidence, is one of the most fun players to watch on the tour. I love his variety, his strategy, but he needs to start showing this kind of play in the first two rounds of a tournament where he struggles most. It was a joy to watch his serves, drop shots, and volleys

On the sidenote - very good English language skills from Sergyi during the ceremony. Does he have something in common with some US based academies or just he learnt English well ?

Re: New Haven Final: Stakhovsky def Istomin 3-6 6-3 6-4

Stakhovsky is 8-0 once he reaches an ATP semi-final. He won s-Hertogenbosch and New Haven but went 1-6 in between. Three titles in the last 12 months (also St. Petersburg) is incredible, funny he can't be more consistent or win more at bigger events yet.

He was trained in Ukraine and Slovakia only, as I know. He is sufficiently good educated
