Mmmh, anyone watching the match ? :scared:

Gasquet played so solid and well in the beginning of the first set, taking a 4-1 lead, but then Misha began to play amazing and leveled things up at 4-4..

I read the OP as Misha/Novak would be a QF.

Apparently I didn't hit myself in the head enough times from the last time I was here, when I didn't realise Misha had played and lost already :rolleyes:

Youzhny out with wrist injury
Saturday 23 January 2010
By David Kilmartin

Russian Mikhail Youzhny has withdrawn from the men’s singles at Australian Open 2010 with a wrist injury. The No.20 seeded Russian said he was unable to recover from wrist pain that developed during the final stages of his five hour first round tussle with Frenchman Richard Gasquet.

"I cannot play backhand at all,” Youzhny explained on Saturday. “I can play little bit forehand, but still little bit pain.” Youzhny said he had felt the pain during his second round match against Czech Jan Hajek, even though he won convincingly 6-2 6-1 6-1.

Further medical treatment and pain-killers were unsuccessful in repairing the injury. This had been Youzhny’s tenth straight Australian Open. He said there had been no point testing his wrist out on court before today's match against Poland’s Lukasz Kubot.

“I understand it’s no chance to play well here ,“ he said, making the decision to withdraw after his doctor said that pain-killing injections and other treatment were futile and that further play could lead to a longer lay-off. “This is life sometimes. You have injury and you have to pull out if you cannot play.”
Youzhny’s withdrawal means that Kubot reaches the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time, setting up a potential encounter with world No. 3 Novak Djokovic should the Serb get past Denis Istomin. “Anything is possible,” said Kubot, when asked about his chances, “I’m looking forward to it.” Kubot says he had no inkling of Youzhny’s decision, going through his normal morning practice and preparations before the match. “It came as a total surprise.”
While wishing Mikhail well, Kubot said the turn of events would allow him to save energy. “I’m happy I’m having luck this year. I’m trying to enjoy every day out here in Australia.”
If Kubot does play Djokovic it will be a replay of last year’s ATP final in Serbia. Kubot was a lucky loser into the main draw of that event, before proceeding to knock out the second and third seeds, Igor Andreev and Ivo Karlovic, to reach his first final. Djokovic won the match 6-3 7-6(0).
Kubot credited the Belgrade final with resurrecting his singles career, saying it gave him newfound confidence and allowed him entry to main draws. The world No. 86, the third-lowest ranked player left in the draw, said he didn’t feel stressed moving into the fourth round. “I have nothing to lose. These guys have to beat me. On the other hand it will be harder for me because I don’t have that experience.”

The interview.

Q. What's the problem?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: Wrist pain.


Q. Wrist pain?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: Yes.


Q. Which wrist?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: My right hand. I start to feel, you know, against Gasquet in last set a little bit. The next day was worse and worse little bit.

But I don't think I going to play. I was going to try, but was not. Hajek play a lot. He just give me chance to win. I'm not practice yesterday, just try to warm up today. And I feel I cannot.


Q. Did you have any treatment?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: No, I have treatment every day. I going to doctor every day. I have some anti‑pain pills. I do everything what I can do for these days, but it doesn't help.


Q. Do you know what it is? Is it tendinitis?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: Yes, first they say just tired because I play five hours. First match in the season after big rest. First of all, they say just tired the tendons and muscles.

But after like three, four days, it's same situation. I don't do picture or something. I just want to come back to Moscow and start to make...


Q. You didn't practice yesterday at all?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: I didn't practice at all yesterday.


Q. You felt it today in the warmup?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: I cannot play backhand at all. I can play little bit forehand, but still little bit pain. I understand it's no chance to play well here. If I continue to play here, you know, I can miss a lot of time.


Q. Did you actually get to the court today?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: No. It's no reason, because I go to doctor. I ask, Is it possible to maybe take tablets? He said, Maybe it's possible, not hundred percent. But maybe in future will be much worse because without pain you will play harder and nobody knows what happens later.


Q. Have you had this before?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: No, first time.


Q. How disappointing is it after winning that long match now having to pull out?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: Yeah, you know, of course it's tough for me now because actually I play well. I ready to play. But this is life sometimes. You have injury and you have to pull out if you cannot play.


Q. Do you have any idea how long? Did the doctor say?

MIKHAIL YOUZHNY: No. He just tell me if I continue to play today, it could be really long. So but how long now, I hope not really long.

Garcia-Lopez is Misha's nightmare : 0-4 in their H2H.

Hopefully, Misha can eventually correct this oddness and then take on the Frenchman in the Quarterfinals. Maybe Monfils will be a bit tired after his south African swing, and Misha could then reach the semis.

To be followed...

Where's everyone? :p

Hey hey :wavey:

So far Misha (no.10 seed) has scored two wins, first over Marsel Ilhan TUR 6-2, 6-3, 7-6(5), and then a hard-fought over Blaz Kavcic SLO 6-3, 6-1, 5-7, 4-6, 6-1.

He faces 'Canadian' Milos Raonic in R3.

If he does well, he will play against Ferrer or Berankis for a place in possible QF with Nadal.
But let's go step by step :)

Good luck tomorrow! Match is scheduled first (1am CET) on Show Court 3.
