Saw the last set from 3-2, looked pretty routine for Youzhny.

this recouderc has one strange game. his backhand has the most exaggerated knee bend ever. seemed like he barely hit 2 consecutive backhands the same all match alternating between moonballs, slices and 100% flat drives. it's a shit shot overall and he dumped way too many routine shots into the net.
his fh looked unorthodox too with an exaggerated last second flick of the wrist to generate a lot of topspin.

he seems to like to come to the net as well but didn't seem particularly adept there.
very flat 1st serve (crazy amount of lets) which was effective on this quick surface, shithouse 2nd serve.
