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.
