Great week for Yuri. He defeated Volandri, Youzhny (ret) and Stepanek before taking down Cipolla. Very surprising final but Schukin was the best player this week and last set just ran through Cipolla.

Hajek won this twice in a row. Stepanek, Fromberg, Calleri, Vinciguerra, Roitman, Nieminen, Coria, Gaudenzi, Chesnokov and Kucera have been among the previous winners.

Cipolla just had no answers to Schukin's power. Easy and predictable win for kazakh:bowdown:

Very deserved. Not a great match for most of the time though ;) But at a big stake for guys who don't get there that often, so it's understood. Yuri needed the points for the RG 2nd round last year.

Schukin tanked a few games during second set, he also look exhausted. He took a timeout in between sets 2 and 3.
But in 3rd set he completely humiliated Cipolla. One winner after the other

Yeah I wasn't sure if he had a med timeout or went to the bathroom, but it surely helped! After all he's the guy who played Gstaad semis last year.

neither did I, but the commentator said he went to restroom for medical timeout :lol: Maybe they had to check private parts

lol, what's up with Kazakhstani's winning 1 tournament and doing nothing for ages? :p

Still, a good effort to win.

Schukin does very well in the girlfriend stakes. It does look strange to see his name there with the others that have won it, but no doubt he was the man this week. As for him being underdog hahaha

Good performance from Yuri and a great week, even though he did get a little lucky with Youzhny retiring in the QF. He has a great game for clay challengers, he can really dictate and be offensive. A good week for Flavio as well.
