Quite pathetic performance by Ferrer, much less pathetic by Youzhny. Of course Mikhail had to remind us he's a headcase, but the end was totally his. Beautiful dropshot actions and tactics choice (I don't know how some guys can't play properly with short baseliners, but that's a subject for another discussion). And last but not least, the backhand. Congratulations Mikhail!

No pathetic performance by Ferrer...He played quite well but Youzhny played absolutely top 10 level, Those lobs, and dropshots..and backhands..Even his forehands were great today. Fantastic play. Just that end.....
Hope he keeps this up and we have a new player in the top 10 in a few months

Well, in the 1st set and in the majority of 2nd he's embarassing himself. Youzhny played great indeed, but was it Top 10 level - I don't think so (too many errors). He just knew the way to defeat Ferrer and despite of some terrible errors he just followed the path

good job Misha. The decision not to play DC is working out some pretty solid results these last two weeks.

I called a Ljubo-Youzhny final before the tourney started and im sticking with that. This will be part 3 of the 2007 Youzhny chokefest show.

Hmm a rather bold statement... and has the potential to provoke a lot of Ljubo haters - if he happens to lose to Misha or earlier

Hope you are mentally prepared for a possible onslaught :angel:

Misha :woohoo:
I think he can win this tournament! :D
Of course,only if he doesn't do one of his pathetic chokes like against Baggy last week,Ljubo in Zagreb(I wanted him to choke then :p),etc :rolleyes:

Absolutely. It was about time he focus on his own career and let the other very capable Russian men handle Davis Cup. His record in the first two months this year is his best start to a season ever, with 2 QF's and now 2 SF's! I hope he can take out Novak again and perhaps win the title... but then again, he should have won Marseille last week too. ;) :rolleyes:

I dont understand that either, but top 10-15 players figure it out, that is why ferrer, boredo etc. struggle against top 10 players...
