If only Kavcic had focused on the game instead of arguing with the umpre throughout the match, losing concentration that way...

Kavcic played his heart out, and was robbed at 1*-2 final set when Youhzny shot a ball well out on a gameball of Kavcic. Not that I think it would've made a difference of the outcome, but I was very impressed with how Kavcic handled big points throughout the game otherwise. Got too tired in the end.

Youzhny looked like he fell asleep there and had very big problems trying to wake up. Needed to shout to himself in the 5th set.

Kavcic is one of those players who "don't go away" but the lenght of the match seemed to have defeated him, physically and mentally.

It wasn't such a great match, silly errors from Youzhny there, doesn't bode well for the next round.

Youzhny will officially join my shit list with other notables i.e. Roddick, Fish, Baghdatis, Verdasco, Querrey, Davydenko, and others who have failed to make improvements, and seem to be heading downhill.

having to go 5 isn't reassuring but Youzhny haven't been playing that great for a while now, just mostly beating the players he should beat, tweener was great though :worship:

No, I don't think so. Youzhny is a very up and down player. He has hot and cold patches each year. I think what he has improved is how to be solid and steady and win when not at his best. That's what he did well in NY and did yesterday. There's a good chance he'll hit another hot streak of form after the Aussie during the Euro indoors/Middle East stretch - he's always been good that time of year. He's also typically hot in the end of the clay - grass court season.

Yeah, it's pretty common for Misha to win the first two sets easily in a Slam, lose focus and drop the 3rd, and squeak out the 4th. I was nervous when he dropped the 4th but at least he shut the door fast in the 5th.

Keep it up, Mish!

Classic Youzhny, he was never losing this and got to love the match result threads, never change their tone.

Kavcic was very brave, sure he is limited and has a shit serve, but he is doing the best he can with that game. As for the rubbish call, there were a lot of them in this match.

After the long game where Kavcic got broken at *1-2 in the 5th, where he was hitting 2nd serves for most of the game. The Colonel did what he needed to and Kavcic was mentally beaten.
