Expected TB win for Misha if you followed the match from 1-4 in the final set. From this point it was all Youzhny.

It was 6-4 4-6 7-6(0)

Youzhny was a set and a break up before Nole came back

in the end it was Nole who choked away a 4-1 lead in the third

Djokovic is the most overrated player in the tour right now.

Even Gasquet is underrated compared to him...

Good win for Misha- not a big surprise, he is capable of beating top 20 players when he is on form.

not quite, it was very even until the TB

Nole was 2 points away from the victory at 5-4 30-0*

Mental problems. Not good, Nole.

Compared to others in the 8 young players for the future, particularly, Baghdatis, Verdasco and Berdych, Nole has always some across as mentally more stable.

nole he has no stamina and breath. he was tired as hell at the end.

it's the law of averages, someone told him he was great in TB and then he loses to 2 TB's to Mathieu and now this. He can't rely on TB and should play his game . He had 4:1 and was cruising then had that terrible game. Well, he is still young

I doubt he is relying on tiebreaks to win matches. Its not like at 4-1 up he told himself lets blow this lead now then i will win in the tiebreak.

Djokovic, Gasquet and Murray have poor levels of fitness for top level professional players.

I agree, he is way to one-dimensional to do any real damage...

Misha :woohoo: love that boy's backhand and his sexy bod!!!

doesnt he have that weird two-handed backhand off the return he uses a lot? it sort of slics the ball and gives him a lot of time. i thought i was the only person who does this until i saw him.

:bounce: What an incredible win! This should have come last year at Wimbledon as well. But beautiful comeback and nice way to make someone else eat the "choker" label for once.

Mikhail is still yet to lose to a non-top tenner player this year. I think he's gonna have a really consistent year on all surfaces. And I love how his bandwagon keeps filling up the more he wins.

Youzhny is the man, possible top 15 finish this year, alot of it depends if he can defend his US Open ranking points.

For once? Don't you remember a certain DC final? ;)

Anyway, congrats youzhny... Too bad these two had to meet in the first round.

How can you guys say that a player ranked 14th losing to a player ranked 22nd as a major upset, and now the player ranked 14th who lost in a 3rd set TB is the most overrated player on tour.

Great win for Youzhny. Djokovic has had some problems with the lead where his game inexplicably goes away. Wish I could have seen this one.

As for the larger picture, this loss won't matter much as Djokovic will sooner or later reach the top 10 and then possibly into the top 5 soon. I definitely think he will finish the race in 5th-7th place.

Misha, great win! This was an interesting 1st round match-up on paper it could have gone either way.

Anyhoo, I think both players have the game to move up in the rankings.

Don't see this as being a major upset.

When the 14th player in the rankings is known as the real deal and everybody thinks he can beat Federer...

DAVI!!!! No upset Youzhny crushed Nadal at the US Open, made it to the semis there, and gave Fed a better fight than almost anyone else at the Australian Open.
