can't believe I watched the whole match, so up and down. Sad that Misha lost, he just couldn't hold advantage after break Klizan in last 2 sets.

YESSS!!!! Absolute dogfight. Sadly, Klizan is probably done for tomorrow and for Kuala Lumpur, because this was obviously brutal for his body. It would be a disaster to lose match like this for Klizan, at least he earned some really deserved points.

Klizan´s backhand and serve weren´t at his best today, but it´s understandable in a neverending thriller like this. Martin once again showed where he belongs, definitely into the top30 right now. Solid players like Youzhny are exactly the comparable level to Martin.

I expect Martin to retire from doubles for today and I am very curious about tomorrow´s final and Kuala Lumpur next week. I think, Martin is better player than Fognini, but Fognini is obviously in great situation now. So happy for Martin!

These guys could have played on ice, and still there would be a lot of breaks.

If the tournament wasn`t in Russia, Misha would have withdrawn after the first match, IMO. What a fighter he is, it`s a shame he lost after such great effort.

Gasquet is next №1

Don't understand what happened with Misha's serve in the 2nd set After Klizan won it, it was clear Youzhny would lose. It was a miracle he managed to take it to TB in the 3d.

This match was amazing

Youznhy's experience and rock solid game and Kilzan's talent were great contrasting styles. it also helped the drama was peak

Hopefully Kilzan isn't to worn out for tomorrow because he could easily beat Fognini playing like this.

Djokovic
Del Potro Berdych
Donskoy Dodig Lacko Stepanek Gulbis Davydenko Kudla Cuevas Goffin

In fact, Klizan was far from his best today, I hope he can recover and come up with goods tomorrow. Fognini is beatable if he is okay physically.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem
