Stakhovsky def. Tursunov 7-5 4-6 7-6(4)

A good win for the young Ukranian, second seed Tursunov ousted in first round.

I would say this was the second upset of the day in Moscow, following Mathieu's loss to Tipsarevic.

Mathieu losing is never an upset.

Tursunov played awfully in the third set (what I watched).

Not so sure if Mathieu losing to Tipsy on a fast court would qualify as an upset.

As for Dmitry, at least he still has his three set match streak intact. Seven and running.

Dima.... doing his best safin impersonation.

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

Judging from the stats, Dima oafed.

Yeah, you're right there. Mathieu can lose with anyone and still won't be an upset..

It's just that Tipsarevic's results this year haven't been good so far. However, he just won a few Challengers lately so he must have been improving his game.

Stakhovsky deserved to win. He's the smarter player, a real talent. His dropshots for example are great. He also has no real weakness in his game.

What surprises me is that he lost to Rusedski in the DC.

Well, he's still very young and he's beginning to obtain good results. Rusedski's experience in DC might have played an important role.

Sergiy is a wonderful player to watch. He hits about the flashiest touch shots in men's tennis. He's got unbelievable flair. But he still has alot to learn about what shot to hit when. His game is also not really at all suited to clay either hence the davis cup loss wasnt a big surprise for me. A game with all the subtlety, variety and flair of Stakhovsky's inevitably takes longer to develop than that of a claycourt bassliner who simply learns how to hit good topspin shots and run like hell; or for that matter a hardcourt basher who simply has a good serve and a big forehand.

But I am really looking forward to watching Sergiy's game develop over the next 3 or 4 years.
