Not impressed by Misha. The one thing you can say is that Misha played aggressively throughout much of the match, but that can be attributed to the fact that Soeda has absolutely no weapons. Youzhny's serve isn't a weapon anymore and he's very inconsistent. I can see Kuku taking him out in R2.

Misha moved better today than I have seen from him lately and he hit some nice backhands, but in my opinion, he's in terminal decline. I'm just happy Soeda is far from the top 100 now since he certainly doesn't belong there.

Even beating Soeda on clay must count as a major triumph for Youz atm :-)

I wish Soeda could draw Lu, that would have been a fun match

I'll take every win I can get from Colonel...he does have a pretty kind draw so hopefully he can get through
