RG R2: Mikhail Youzhny def. Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3, 7-5, 6-4

he did a good job, was relatively untroubled on serve except the second set when he fell behind early

broke kukushkin twice when he served for it and then fell 0-40 but recovered well

Youzhny winning matches, and easily.

Is the rapture coming?

Dicey second set but I will never complain about straight sets for a guy who is struggling. Probably a bit more of a test against most likely Montanes

Tuned into this one every once in a while. Youzhny playing some nice aggressive tennis, looked a real class above Kuku. I'd only seen Kuku twice before, once on clay against JCF, and it seemed like he was a much more aggressive/ballbashing style player in those ones I watched. He really didn't have anything on his shots today, really got no clue what his real style is.

Misha was alright. Not great, but alright. He played a lot more aggressively today than he has been. Kuku has no game whatsoever, he's a mediocre player. Misha will need to be more consistent to beat Montanes but it's a good opportunity for him.

Misha (Youzhny) has a great chance to go deep in this RG, he'd be more than stupid to miss it!

QQshkin never stood a chance here; Misha has a sick easy draw but he can get ripped by Fognini surely, and maybe also Montanes. Would be a pretty wasted chance as I doubt he'll get yet many in his career.
