Misha is now preparing for the US Open series harcourt season.
Let's all gather and cheer for him.
:wavey:

Unfortunately, Misha will not do the Olympics :sad: but may very well prepare even better for the US Open :angel:

Good of Misha to skip the Olympics, the more I think about it the more it makes sense. The players who do well or medal at the Olympics are virtually assured of losing early at the USO. For many players, winning a medal at the Olympics is the biggest thing they will achieve in their careers but Misha can do more than that. :)

I'd like to see Misha have a good run on the summer hardcourts again. :wavey:

Good luck to Misha in The States. I'm personally rather sad he won't be in The Olympics :sad: But hope things will work out for the best for him.

No one talked about Misha's victory over Seppi 76(1) 62.
He really cruised past the tie break into the second set and closed out quite fast then on. :worship:

Kiefer now, who beat Fish 75 76(4)

---

In doubles, Misha partners with Paul Henri Mathieu (strange) and they won their first match quite easily : P Mathieu (FRA) / M Youzhny (RUS) d D Ferrer (ESP) / J Nieminen (FIN) 62 62
Paul Henri Mathieu wants to forget his loss in the Davis Cup final in 2002, a loss to Misha that had gotten him outside the top 100 for quite a while.. he became so mentally inconsistant after that specific match

They seem to get along now :lol:

Davai Misha !!! :hug:

why MIsha skips OG :eek: no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :sad:

He's going through a hard patch right now :sad: that's why. Better focus on the US Open. I'm sure he and Tarpi-the-chief talked about it.

Anyway, I see you're a Kohlifan and a Mishafan, just like me. Nice to talk to you :angel:

:awww: Yes - he is going through a bad time right now - but just think - he will have virtually no points to defend next season :) Always look on the bright side of life :hug:

He will compete for the Olympics after all...
_____________________________


(01 Aug 2008) Youzhny will contest his second Olympic Games having already been a hero for Russia by winning the decisive match against France in his nation’s first-ever Davis Cup triumph in 2002

Q: This will be your second Olympic Games. How amazing an experience was Athens for you?

MY: The Olympic Games is great for all athletes, even just seeing and experiencing the atmosphere.

Q: How did you feel when you came out with the team for the opening ceremony?

MY: First of all when you are waiting with all the athletes, you can see how many countries are taking part. When you walk into the arena it is a great moment as you understand that you are already at the Olympics even though you haven’t started to play and you don’t know how you will play. But you can see lots of great names.

Q: Do you remember which other athletes were either side of you?

MY: I don’t remember exactly as there were so many big names. You have a chance to speak to other athletes about their sports and the atmosphere.

Q: Did you stay in the village?

MY: Yes, I really enjoyed staying in the village with all our team because it's something different in the Olympics, and you feel this special atmosphere. We travel all the year and we see the same faces all the time, the same hotels. This is something new, something special. We can stay all together.

Q: Did you make new friends in Athens?

MY: I can't say I made new friends, but when you meet up again with fellow athletes, you can share memories from the Olympics.

Q: What challenges will there be for players in Beijing?

MY: It's not the same as Athens. It is much tougher for tennis players. I think in all other sports they have four years to be ready for the Olympic Games. Tennis players don't have even have four days to be ready. The calendar is very tough, particularly with the time difference and everything. So it will be a tough Olympics for all players.

Q: Are you planning to watch any other sports in Beijing?

MY: Yes, I'm ready to watch all sports. Even athletics, which I wouldn’t watch if it wasn’t the Olympics. At the Olympics, if you see a Russian name, you take notice and you really want them to win a medal.

Q: Are there any particular sports you want to see?

MY: Actually in Athens, I didn't have any chance to go watch anything. It doesn’t matter which sports I go to see in Beijing, because the atmosphere would be really nice. If I have time I’ll go to any one. We don’t have too much time to enjoy the Olympics Games because of the other tournaments before and after.

Q: What other sport would you like to be able to play at the Olympics, if you couldn’t play tennis?

MY: This is a tough question, because I don’t exactly know the answer. The Olympics is the Olympics. I don't want to choose one sport ahead of the other because if you have a medal, it doesn't matter in which sport, you are Olympic champion.
