For those of you who weren't able to immediately tell, Marchenko was the guy in the t-shirt with the yellow stripe.

Well done to Marchenko, that really was a match that he needed to 'tough out', and despite giving the 2nd set away with double faults he came through relatively comfortably.

Re: StPetersburg QF: Marchenko def Becker 6-4 2-6 6-2

Most of the match had the same pattern: Marchenko pushing, Becker attacking weakly, eventually making a lame error. Aside from short moments, Becker couldn't drag himself far enough up court to actually do any damage, and wasn't taking many risks either. Awful tactics.

Marchenko blew up in the 2nd, 2-2, deuce, 2 dfs in a row, lost next 5 games.

Key moment was 1-1 in the 3rd, Marchenko df'ed yet again to bring up bp, then next serve was called out, challenged, just clipped the line for an ace.

Becker thought he'd won there, predictably broken straight after with disappointment, and gave up for the rest of the match.

I may as well be honest, I'm not a fan of Marchenko, I don't want him in the top 100 at all, and I really don't think he's much of an ATP player. But I give him credit for toughing out this victory but mostly keeping his head together, while Benni did not. Just made Becker beat him and he didn't. He thoroughly deserves the win although I'm not especially happy he did personally, but congrats to his fans.
