Youzhny def. Lu 7-5, 6-4, 6-4 (next: Federer)

Well, Mikhail almost blew a 2 break lead in the 3rd like he did in the 1st set, but he came back in the last game from 0-40 down. 42 winners to 28 errors, but still a bad first serve percentage.

How many sets will he get vs. Federer? He's won 1 in 7 matches.

Hopefully he'll attack attack attack and come to net like he did against Nadal at the USO. That was missing from his game during the first 2 sets against Roddick in the semis, however. I think he's got to come up to net often.

Tough luck with the draw though. Exit R3.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

I think it would definitely be smart to use another tactic against Roger than against Nadal.....
