Misha was impressive in Bangkok this week vs Srichaphan in 2nd round - he served 19 aces and lost only - 4-6 7-5 2-6
But yesterday in quali in Tokyo he lost to Takahiro Terachi (№399 in the world) 1-6 1-6
This week he is No. 276, but I think he'll enter top-250 on Monday after 2nd round in Bangkok.
BTW, victory over Ryderstedt in 1st round was his first one on ATP level
He is No. 10 in Russia now
