Any help or info would be cool. Thanks. Oh, and he looks awesome in Japan this week! I hope he takes that title.
Unfortunately he didn't take the title, but he's truly returning to his former top form, which is good. I'm looking forward to a great Australian Open.
Otherwise, you have to know that Misha is pretty discreet, he doesn't like the spotlight too much. He's a very natural guy, very nice, and speaks English with a pronounced russian accent. He lost his father when he was younger in tough circumstances. But life goes on and he is to be a father himself now. He's very loyal to russia and to moscow (he's one of those who played the most matches in Davis Cup) and likes to keep it simple.
