Mikhail Youzhy likes to drive "Mercedes".
The winner of Davis Cup - 2002 Mikhail Youzhy could occupy top-10 if only not his injuries. His present problem is the consequences of an anguish in a knee joint in a place of fastening the four-chapter muscle to a bone. In the interview Mikhail has told how he is now.

- Mikhail, how's your leg?
- Doctors tell that everything is all right, but I still have painful feelings. I get used to trust doctors and they assure me that as soon as the muscle will return its former elasticity, everything will be right. Now it is necessary to suffer, but I haven't another way.

- But the muscle is not elastic yet, so that's possible for injury to come back?
- Yes, it is possible. Therefore I try to avoid hard work, or I'll have to restore my leg not for one month.

- Perhaps, everything is because the busy schedule of players-professionals?
- I'd not say so. Generally you can create your own schedule for to not be absolutely exhausted.

- In Dubai you had a match with Federer. It is hard to play with the tennisplayer of such class?
- Certainly. But in Emirates he wasn't in the best form. However, he won the tournament. But I can tell, that I could beat that Federer but I have to play my the best tennis. Although when he's in his best form I have no chances.

- Is he actually the strongest tennis player of the world?
- The last year he was much more better than all the other tennis players. This year he plays to a little bit other game, and have some problems. In general, he's, certainly, the strongest, but I shall be really surprised, if for a season he will lose for only 5-7 matches.

- You said, that you can beat not good-formed Federer playing your best tennis. Can you call the match where you played your best tennis?
- To tell the truth, no. My game constantly improves, therefore, all's ahead.

- And what about the final of Davis Cup - 2002, the match against Mathieu?
- Well, then I played far from being in the best tennis because the main thing was just to win. Already all emotions connected to that victory, have died.

- Many tennis players have a dream – to become the number one in the world. But the actual aimes for many players are another. Can you call your one?
- Actually, I can tell my main task – to improve constantly some components of the game. For example, the serve. You know, there's no limit fir perfection. Well, I also have one aim... but it's a secret. In the future, of course, I'd like to rise and rise my ranking.

- Can you call the names of 5 best tennis players right now?
- I can call the three – Federer, Safin and Hewitt. Also I can add Roddick when he plays in USA or has no problems with his serve. And Coria playing on clay.

- How do you think, if Marat Safin has chances to have a success on the tournaments of "The Big helmet" this year?
- Certainly! I think, at least one more tournament Marat will win.

- Do you watch the matches of our girls? Is it possible to Masha Sharapova to become the first in the world?
- To tell the truth, not especially, I check the results only. Scharapova wins now many matches. Why can't she rise to the top?

- Can you call yourself the rich person?
- Hm… I'd say, I'm endowed. I can allow myself different whims.

- And do you have them?
- Sure! For example, I love very much "Mercedeses". I have bought one to myself from the ML series (ML350, a special series, the price is 59900 euros – the comment of RBC) to realise my dream. Actually, there're a lot of whims, about all I can't tell because even the whole magazine will be not enough (laughs).

I’m really sorry there are no Russian fans of Mikhail on this forum to keep others in touch with his news... :rolleyes: Anyway there are some interesting facts (from the Russian press).

In Moscow Russian tennis player Mikhail Youzhny has begun the preparation to the new season from the new method of the trainings in gym. His coach Boris Sobkin has told about their offseason plans. “The most part of the offseason time we’re going to dedicate to the rehabilitation and preventive maintenance of the injuries. The main Misha’s problem is – unfortunately connate and non-curable already – asymmetry of the body. He is strongly signified right-handed person. And that’s why he gets such a number of injuries. Now we work in the gym with the new system – with special simulators for correction body structure’s problems. Time shows how effective they are. If everything goes well then our first tournament will be one in Doha”.

That day Misha has been noticed near the owner of the local basketball club at the match in Russian city Samara. Mikhail and his team conducted negotiations with “Volgaburmash” (“VBM”). Also Misha said it’s the first time he is at the women’s basketball match. “Women’s basketball is different of the men’s one like, perhaps, it’s in tennis. But like any sport it’s definitely absorbing one. Today I especially enjoyed the game of one not really high girl (French player E. Louson). Generally I like our Moscow club CSKA”. Youzhny admitted he’s spent a lot of time recovering his injuries. He has a sportsman occupational disease, it’s a curvage of pelvic-thigh muscles. Misha’s going to start active performances in the new year. “The main thing for me now is just to play. I don’t think about anything else”.

The rare enough event for the Russian tennis has taken a place. Mikhail Youzhny signed the sponsor's contract with the Russian company - Open Society “VBM”. According the treaty (which financial part is disclosed) within a year the tennis player will participate at all the competitions in a shirt with a brand mark of his new sponsor. Besides that he will organize in Samara a master-class for young tennis players and two “show” VIP matches.

Every article about Misha includes a number of medical terms and it’s not so easy to translate... Wish him to return to the his best form! ;)

EDIT: ah shit, sorry... With all those articles I forgot to say the main thing :p . During SPb Open '05 Misha stared in one episode of tv-series for teenagers called "OBZ-2". That episode will be shown this Thursday so if I find some time to have a look I'll tell you more details.

irina,u promiss u will tell us about teh interview u saw,with misha,on thursday i think:D!

12-20-2005, 05:12 PM
It is quite far from that Thursday but you know, I was busy with my handball team =).
Anyway in short about that thing I saw. It was a tv-serie for teens. Story was next: one guy told everybody that SPb Open is a cool tournament (100% right lol) and invited his classmates to go with him there and support his good friend Misha Youzhny. Nobody believed he's a friend of Misha so finally that guy went to the tourney alone and then everybody saw him on TV near Misha...
So Misha was himself in that show. But anyway I think it was his first appearence on TV not in a sport program =). Yeah, if except TV adverts.

Thanks for all the news articles!

Misha on a TV show. :)

I hope he's healthy for Doha and all the tournaments ahead. I wish, though, he chose to compete in a weaker event so he can play more matches before the Australian. It looks like he'll just play that one warm-up tourney before Melbourne.

That ChupaChups video doesn't work for me. :( :sad: I click on the video link and nothing happens. Anyone know what's wrong?

12-27-2005, 06:43 PM
Hm... I told you I saw some invalid links, maybe it didn't work that time and I didn't try any more :)

12-27-2005, 08:40 PM
it worked great for me!i guess i can send it to u on mess leo!

02-24-2006, 06:31 PM
Some more life to this thread... :)

Seems Misha becomes an often guest on TV lol. I’ve heard he took a part in one new TV show (“A Big Dispute”, it was shown a week ago) of the central Russian TV-channel. The meaning of the show is the next: the showman suggests to famous people try to do some special and weird thing and then he invites to the studio some “master” and asks if that “master” will be able to do the same thing in the limited time.

In Misha’s case it was a task to burst a balloon without using the hands. Misha tried to kick it by foots but the balloon flied away. Then everybody began prompting him to try teeth. After all Misha really did it by teeth. :cool: Then the showman invited a boy with a dog and supposed they’ll burst 100 balloons in 3 minutes. Misha bet they won’t do it and he won. ;)

02-24-2006, 10:12 PM
Thanks for the news! :yeah:

02-25-2006, 01:32 AM
Hehe I bet Misha was so cute on the show. Oh I wish I'd saw it.
