kind of predictable in the first matchup between the two that golubev would have trouble reading andy's serve, but he really was putrid on the first serve returning. Not to mention Golubev loves to ballbash and Andy loves to push, this was a mismatch written all over it.

Golubev is useless when he faces a good retriever. He started to play well at 1-4* down in the second set but obviously by then it was too late... Golu can hit monstrous winners but he has to learn to wait for the right opportunities. That's the next step for him if he wants to reach top 10.

Golubev is very overrated. And mostly because very few new players made a big hit during this season. Roddick is a champion and he will go to WTF for 8th straight time.

Completely expected match. Golubev was able to do damage off A-Rod's second serve and showed at times he could dominate from the baseline, especially the end of the second set. But overall, A-Rod kept his first serve percentage high, stayed solid, returned well, and made Golubev beat him, and he couldn't. Golubev hit himself from winning and was poor returning the first serve and handling A-Rod's different spins/slices. Congrats to the American on the victory.
