Congrats for Kuku for his first ATP title. Kuku played quite more consistent along the match. Mikhail made several mistakes and paid the consecuence of such long previous matches. Now his aspirations to qualify for the Masters of London are quite in danger which is a real pity.

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

Somewhat expected, Youzhny has been hanging on by a thread in his matches leading up to this. Congrats to Kuku Youzhny has been pretty clutch in TBs this week so Kuku did well to pull it out so comprehensively, along with holding his nerve and breaking back in the 2nd set

I'm glad he won this title
He was really improving lately, and this is a nice reward.

It's "his" tournament, he debuted there on the main level in 2007, in 2008 notched first important victory - over Cilic, and now the title. He's the 5th maiden-title winner this year.

Re: St. Petersburg F Kukushkin d. Youzhny 6-3 7-6(2)

Misha played really poorly. Kept fighting to get back into it, but couldn't keep the errors down. His backhand was very erratic, often mis-timed; so you knew Kuku had the slight edge in baseline rallies.

Youzhny served for the 2nd though at 6-5. Crowd was very excited for him to come back, and very unexcited when Kuku won.

Would have been his 3rd title of 2010 and 3rd St. Petersburg crown in his career? Oh well. Perhaps exhaustion from long matches and London pressure combined got to him today.

He's not yet 23, continually improving, and just won his first title. What crystal ball do you have to say these things?

I never think it's possible but you do manage to say stupider shit each successive time you post.

well done to Kukushkin and great to see another player win his first title!

Youzhny was plain lucky to win his last 2 matches, and his luck ran out today Finally someone finished him off properly
