Re: LET'S GET THE MOMENTUM BACK!!! **the KIWI in St Petersburg thread **

Kiwi has been struggling throughout the tournament and I think that he still hasn´t got over the final in Moscow, at least not completely. If he faces Davydenko, he has a good shot at making the semis. I´m more worried about Youzhny (if they should face each other). He has been playing really well and destroyed Saulnier 6-1, 6-1.

GREAT!!! A good result and so clear?! In the online stream I saw that Davydenko played awfully and made lots of errors and there have been some easy points for Kiwi. I didn't see what was going on between Youzhny and Vik, looks a bit strange, but normally Vik is a must-win match and I hope Kiwi can deliver this win! Good result!!

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

UPDATE 2-Davydenko and Youzhny upset in St Petersburg

ST PETERSBURG, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Russia's top two players Nikolay Davydenko and Mikhail Youzhny tumbled out in the St Petersburg Open quarter-finals on Friday.

Top seed Davydenko surrendered to fifth-seeded German Nicolas Kiefer 6-1 6-1 while defending champion Youzhny lost to unfancied Czech Robin Vik 1-6 6-4 6-2.

Youzhny, who has complained of a sore back throughout the week, led 6-1 4-1 when Vik started his comeback.

Vik reeled off five successive games to level the match before breaking the fourth-seeded Russian in the sixth game of the final set for a 4-2 lead with a clean backhand down the line.

The Czech secured a deserved victory two games later to advance to an ATP semi-final for the first time in his career.

"For sure, this is the best result of my life," said a beaming Vik, who had won only five matches on the ATP Tour this year before coming to St Petersburg and lost in the first round of his last four tournaments.



LUCKY VIK

Vik admitted, however, that he got lucky with Youzhny's injury.

"I think he was going on to win 6-1 6-2 before he hurt his back," he said.

"I got a little lucky, I was given a chance to get back into the match and I grabbed it."

Vik now takes on Kiefer, who dismantled Davydenko in 55 minutes.

The Russian world number eight was dumbfounded about his defeat.

"He started pressing me right from the start and I just couldn't do anything to combat his aggression. He simply gave me no chance today," said Davydenko.

Kiefer, who also reached the Kremlin Cup final earlier this month, said: "I started off well and I saw he was a little bit down on himself, so I tried to press him even more.

"I played very good tennis in Moscow and I was very disappointed to lose in the final there but today was a different story."

The German, who lost to Igor Andreev in the Moscow final, added: "It's never easy to play Russians in Russia.

"I'm just glad there are no more Russians left here."


Earlier, second seed Thomas Johansson also battled through to the last four with a 6-2 7-6 win over seventh seed Greg Rusedski.

After winning the first set in just 24 minutes, the Swede broke Rusedski in the 11th game of the second to take a 6-5 lead and serve for the match.

But the 32-year-old Briton, a semi-finalist here last year, saved a match point with a powerful forehand before breaking back to force the tiebreak.

Johansson would not be denied, however, saving three set points on his own serve before clinching victory at the second opportunity with a backhand cross-court after 86 minutes.

The former Australian Open champion, who won here in 1997, will face Spanish eighth seed Fernando Verdasco who defeated unseeded Dane Kenneth Carlsen 6-4 6-2.
