WWW St.Petersburg ?

Youzhny might be the favorite, but apart from him the tournament is wide open.
That's why I chose for the poll simply all players who already had better or equal results in their careers than/to a title here.
So, for all other players the Petersburg title would be the biggest success in their careers so far,
for example for Klizan, Istomin, Lacko and Berankis.

Mikhail probably, but this is a great chance for a player to win his first title.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

St Petersburg used to be good, with the kremlin Cup on carpet IIRC

Top 10 players like Kraijeck and Goran

Youzhny is the favourite for sure but fancy Lu myself.

Youzhny has been in awful form recently, really needs to pick it up.

Yeah, this is a great opportunity for him. And if he makes the final he's a shoe-in

Oh Sheesh Y'all, 'Twas A Dream

However, I intentionally didn't add them to the poll (as I tried to explain in post #1).
St.Petersburg is maybe the last real opportunity of the season for a player to win their maiden title (at ATP WorldTour level).
But who could it be? I don't know. Do you? ...Anybody?

...When was the last season nobody won their first title in?
Is this season a season nobody won his first title in? wow i didn't know it

Re: WWW St.Petersburg ?

LA was way better than this,maybe not statistically wise considering the player's ranking,but this draw is just awfully muggy.Terrible tournament,and expect some fixing as well.
