Igor took advantage of the draw with Melzer nowhere near his last year level and finally advanced to the 3rd round of GS! Of course he choked serving for the match (almost NID), but had some power to close it out fortunately. Looks like it was a clown match, but still very nice for Kunitsyn 2 5-setters win in a row with even one comeback from 0-2.

Now probably his first and last chance to make the second week. Muller loves USOpen, but he's beatable.

Really great result!

Igor I'm so proud!!!!!! Hell fucking yes.

Igor is a huge choker, but somehow, someway, he found a way to win these two tight 5-setters. Got an advantageous draw and took advantage. Good return statistics. His strengths match up well with Muller so he has a great shot in that match, especially considering he beat Muller in Washington.

Thought it was game over when Igor got broken like an amateur serving for it 6*-5. Took a ton of mental strength to regroup for the TB. Many lower ranked players fall apart in that situation.

Igor didn't and that just earned him a spot in R3. Well deserved

Good win for Kunitsyn, dude's a hard worker with a fun game to watch. Great chance for a huge payday if he can get by Muller.
