I don't think it was a bad loss to Youzhny. There was a stream and I watched some of the match. Youzhny was playing well, and I remember the commentator saying there is something like 118 places between them on the rankings.
Marsel played okay. He can mix it with these guys, it's just a matter of him being exposed to this level often enough so that he can learn how he needs to play to get to that standard himself.
