:bounce: What a great comeback again by Misha. Now come on, let's win your 3rd ATP title. How sweet would it be if he got revenge on Ljubicic??

With his play this year, I think Misha is definitely headed for Top 15 and possibly Top 10, depending on how consistent he can be during the clay court season. Lots of players develop later in their careers, i.e. his compatriot Nikolay, so anything is possible!

Djoko :eek: he blowed two MPs in third set at 5-4 and he got broken and lost match
But good win Misha !! Keep it up and take title you played great tennis since UsOpen and title would be well deserved

Great match. Djokovic played an amazing point at 4:4 (30-40) in the third :worship:
Djokovic lost match for the first time after wasting match point. He had match points in two sets - this happen very rarely.

Nice sportmanship from Nole... seems to be able to take defeat like a man, not a pus*

They both played an awesome match, a couple of balls here and there decided the outcome. Seems that Misha's improving his psyche, if Ljubo defeats Davy he won't be able to count on Misha choking it away one more time :devil:

Good match, thanks for cashing me in Youzhny. Man, Djokovic must be kicking himself for netting that EASY backhand crosscourt on match point in the second set tiebreak. He was also up 3-0* in the third set and had match points at *4-5 15-40 and Youzhny saved one with a really bold shot. :yeah:

Yes. Youzhny won these two points, not Djokovic lost. Especially third MP was fantastic: difficult combination of dropshot and half-volley.

My thoughts exactly... and I bet they don't like playing each other, because they are a bad matchup to one another, paradoxically :confused:
It always hangs on a thread, can't guess which way it will go...

Character-building match for Nole. Shouldn't be too angry with himself, even played a reasonable tiebreak for once. Youzhny deserves a lot of credit for his never say die attitude. Great player.

Tom Paulman

Wow that was an entertaining match! Youzhny is a real fighter and deserves the title, I hope he destroys Ljubo or Davy tomorrow cause they both are not my favorite players.

Losing some tough matches like this... at this point in his career, is probably a good thing for Nole!!
...
If he learns to hate the taste of agonising defeat then he`ll become a much more ruthless competitor as he matures [remember a certain Swiss guy had many bitterly close matches go against him for the first few years of his career]...!!

Youzhny reached a US open SF Nole didn't
Youzhny is in a big form thatswhy it is expected that he won, i already knew of the begining that it would be a final between champions and my prediction came true..

wow great for misha. i expected a close match and it looks like it was. he is a very underrated player who has underachieved because of injuries and personal problems...he can be very dangerous as we saw at USO last year. hope he can win today!

Sorry I'm :confused: wright now!I ask you:"Do you really hate Nole that much"?I didn't ask you who is better player wright now!:retard:

I allready noticed that you don't like him!Is it because he is from Serbia?:confused: Or it's something else?I would really like to know!

Umm.. what has serbia got to do with it?

It's obvious... Nole is a Serb (or at least born there), and someone with Ljubicic in his nickname is most likely a Croat (or a Bosnian, which doesn't change anything). Now if you browse some history books about ex-Yugoslavia, things should get clear.

Although, seeing that Ljubo and Nole get along just fine, I don't see why their fans couldn't get along as well. It's not that Nole had any part in the war, him being a small kid when it happened.

I didn't say anything bad about Ljubicic,I really think he is a great player,and Ancic is one of my favourite players!But seems like "ljubicic_" really hate Nole,so I just want to know WHY?And I'm glad that Nole is a good friend with Ancic and Ljubicic!;)

Maybe he just doesn't like him for whatever reason. People are like that, they have different tastes and preferences. What exactly did he say to make you think he actually hates Nole? I mean, hate is a pretty strong word; for example, I don't think I hate anyone, the furthest I would go is to say that I have 'a strong dislike' for some people (Nole isn't one of them, BTW :) ).

Oh man , you have severe case of Nole envy . Everytime you try to say something but it seems like you are just trying to convince yourself
Your "champion" got swept by Youzhny today and it wasn't even close and Youzhny is younger and much better skilled .
