RG 3r: Monta˝Ús def (12) Youzhny 6-1 7-6 (0) 6-1

Youzhny came back from 0-4 to 5-4 40-15 (and ad-out) in 2nd set, Monty so mentally tough though, and he clung on until Youzhny started self-destructing again
Montanes played well, especially serve, but Youzhny can't hit the ball with any pace, Montanes was killing his paceless, midcourt shots and he's not exactly a ballbasher

Still, great win from Monty. Will play Fognini, real shot at QF

Youzhny has been in poor form and Fat Albert was excellent today.

The orange shorts were pretty awesome, but will never be good Koubek good with the shorts.

Best match of Round 4 easily.

Poor Youzhny and Davydenko. Russia doesn't have a counting ATP player these days.

05-27-2011, 02:18 PM
excellent result :D

05-27-2011, 02:18 PM

he used everyhting he had in the fight back in the 2nd set

05-27-2011, 02:19 PM
colonel was a mess out there, nice win for montanes finally getting past the 3rd round.

Sexy beast on fire
Fat chance to reach the QF for the first time on a GS

Poor Youzhny and Davydenko. Russia doesn't have a counting ATP player these days.

no, as i said before they need the youngster to start stepping up now because all 5 of the top 5 current russian men are on their way out or slumping terribly

05-27-2011, 02:25 PM
What a weird match. And what destruction in the 2nd set TB. You would believe Youzhny to have the mental advantage after the excellent comeback. The russians better start to man up or they will soon be mocked all over MTF

05-27-2011, 02:29 PM
The match was played in the 2nd set when Youzhny came back from 0-4* to 5-4* 40-15 but couldn't take it

05-27-2011, 02:32 PM
Expected. Monty at the end of 2nd set was :bowdown:

Colonel :mad: That second set was crucial, there was a chance to win it in 4 sets...

05-27-2011, 02:53 PM
Cannot believe Youzhny came back from 0-4 to go up 5-4 and still lost the 2nd set with all that momentum.

05-27-2011, 02:58 PM
Good one, Albert! :yeah: :woohoo: Sadly I missed the match but more important that he won. :D
Near for the top 30 again, one match here. Vamos!

About Youzhny.. it seems he will fall a lot after US Open. Terrible season so far. Specially this clay season was :facepalm:

05-27-2011, 03:13 PM
Montanes -- what a fighter.

05-27-2011, 03:21 PM
Youzhny :o . Better tourney than I expected mainly due to the draw

05-27-2011, 03:37 PM
Another 4th round slam for Albert, this time on his best surface! :yeah: I knew he would beat Youzhny, I told all of you he would :yeah:

If Albert gets into the quarter-finals, he will be back up to no.22 in the world :D He's really saving his season and should be seeded for Wimbledon. I'm sure he can win his next match against Fognini. Come on Albert!!!.

05-27-2011, 03:55 PM
Terrible result. Get your act together, Colonel. Monty will reach the QF now.

Losing to Montanes on clay is never a terrible result, unless you're a top player. Who expected Youzhny to win? He's been terrible for a while now.

It's funny, when things go bad for Albert, he comes up with a great tournament to keep his ranking high. Great stuff.

05-27-2011, 04:00 PM
good stuff from montanes. i expect an epic battle against fognini in the 4th round :yeah:

All this result says is that Misha only made R3 because he played two awful players. He no longer is a factor whatsoever, and seems incapable of beating good players.

Once the tie-breaker came around it was plain sailing for the Cowboy builder.
