Who is Mikhail Youzhny? He's a 24-year-old Russian with a killer backhand and more than a passing resemblance to Justin Timberlake. After a number of fourth-round appearances in Grand Slams, he has achieved a career breakthrough.

Almost all the spectators were for Rafa," Youzhny said. "I understand … he is No. 2 in the world. But I was really, really glad during the match when a lot of the people started to say, 'Misha, Misha.' They call 'You, You, You,' because Youzhny is too tough for [them]. --ESPN

I think Roddick is playing too well at this point, but I can see Yoosh getting a set.

Sure why not? If Youzhny can neutralize Roddick's serve I think he has a shot. And of course he himself must do a good job serving.

Roddick vs Youzhny, Who Will Win?

My mind says Roddick, but my gut says Youzhny.

Roddick has been in great form since winning in Cincinnati. He's the seeded player with a slam win under his belt.

Youzhny has been under the radar but has defeated the Top 3 Spaniards in great form. Remembered mostly for his historic 2002 Davis Cup win over France.

Roddick, this year, has been severely criticized by so many people about his game and has been in some sort of slump until Cincinnati.

Youzhny has been criticized for never living up to his full potential, especially after that sensational Davis Cup win. He's also experienced personal tragedy in his life, his father dying suddenly months before his Davis Cup win (I think he alluded that his "salute" after the Nadal win was dedicated to his father).

Here's their Head-to-Head

Tied 2-2

2001 London / Queen's Club
England Grass R64 Youzhny 7-6(5) 6-3

2002 Madrid TMS
Madrid, Spain Hard R32 Youzhny 6-3 6-4

2003 Australian Open
Australia Hard R16 Roddick 6-7(4) 3-6 7-5 6-3 6-2

2005 ATP Masters Series Cincinnati
Ohio, USA Hard Q Roddick 2-6 6-3 6-4


Youzhny won the first two matches, Roddick the last two (although both matches went the distance).

Again, while I think that Roddick has the game to take down Youzhny, I feel Youzhny will win this. I have that feeling that this is one of those times where the stars are aligning for Youzhny to take this.

Youzhny in 4.

Re: Roddick Vs Youzhny: Can Youzhny pull the upset?

I don't see it. Mikhail might be able to sneak out a set at best, but with Roddick's performance he put on tonight I'd heavily favor him in the match. Roddick plays completely different than Nadal. He doesn't play the offensively defencive style of play. PLus Roddick has a serve, something Nadal desperately lacks .

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

Re: Roddick Vs Youzhny: Can Youzhny pull the upset?

HAH, a Federer - Youhzny Final would be insane. Federer would win, but I believe it would not help the American viewers if Youhzny reaches the final, I mean, quite frankly, its difficult to imagine him in the final let alone win it...

Youzhny can definitely do it, with the level he's been playing at this tournament. I hope it doesn't happen though

Re: Roddick Vs Youzhny: Can Youzhny pull the upset?

I think Roddick will win. Sure, Youzhny has been playing great, but Roddick has been serving great as well. Off the ground, Roddick is also playing fantastic, so the question is, will Youzhny have much chance on Roddick's serve? I would think not, while Roddick will definitely have chances on Youzhny's serve.

Roddick wins, Youzhny takes a set at best.
