Russia wins Davis Cup

Congrats to Russia for winning the Davis Cup.

Mikhail Youzhny comes back from down 2 sets to love and wins the decisive 5th match to give Russia the victory. As TheBoiledEgg put it, "Today, he became a man, a great man." This could be the jump-start that he needs to become a solid top-20 player.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov can now go out on a high note. He said he would retire if Russia won. He may now do just that. He has accomplished everything he ever wanted to do in tennis, including reaching #1, winning 2 slams, an Olympic gold medal and now the Davis Cup.

Marat Safin has been the star of the team, with a singles record of 6-1. 2002 was almost a year to forget for him until the last few weeks. He did not wins a title until the last Masters event in Paris. Then he went 0-3 at the Masters Cup. But now winning the Davis Cup has made it all worthwhile. This may be a sign of good things to come for 2003.

Congrats again!

I can't believe it! I left the internet when Youzhny was down 2 sets to love and getting whipped! But he turned it around after I stopped following it on the internet! My reverse psychology worked again!

And I'm especially happy for Youzhny who lost his father in september. His family, all of Russia and all Russian tennis fans should be very proud!

By the way, congrats to Russia on winning the Davis Cup for the very first time!

Egalite!

Congrats Misha for that wonderful , courageous and never-give-up attitude to win the match and the cup for Russia... It was truly unforgettable....

And Marat, for showing and playing his best tennis when he has to carry the burden of being 1-2 behind in the 4th rubber.. He was so vocal and encouraging to misha throughout Misha's match that he is truly the pillar of the Russian team and he deserved to win the MVP award of the Final.....


Finally, congrats to Yevgeny for finally fufilling his life-long dream, well, it is going to be bittersweet .. Is he going to retire now? Whatever decision he is going to make, congrats to him for being 3rd time lucky and winning the Dsvis cup finally...

Congrats Russia!

Congrats to Russia. They're too good a country to have never won a Davis Cup.
