Yes, like I said in the Live Scores thread, the match was of unbelievable quality, considering we had a young and unexperienced player against Canas, who doesnt hold exactly a great record in finals. They both went for it a lot, and both had to WIN the points, since again they both were superb on defense.
Youzhny stepped it up on 1-4, and when Canas was serving 4-2 40-15 he had a double fault. That was the key point, and the russian didnt give Guille a chance anymore.
As I said, Misha especially impressed me, his backhand is just WOW :eek: Ill keep both my eyes open and will follow his chances on the hard courts. His aggressive game, wonderful backhand and killer forehand suit a lot the hard.
Good luck to him!

Misha's backhand is a shot tailor-made for clay. It won't be nearly as effective on US hardcourts or indoors though. Misha can do really well on clay or RA in future.

Thanks Becca! :)

Congrats Eggy! :D

And congrats Mikhail! :bounce: It's about time!

Eggy, the first title of many? :confused: Be careful! :eek: Don't jinx him!

Is it time for Mikhail Youhzny to play ahead of Yegeny Kafelnikov in Davis Cup singles? I say da!

What in the world are they doing playing a best out of five sets in the final? In an incredibly long season, this is totally unecessary! :mad:

You are really nuts, the cat, aren't you? Instead of Safin, I would probably understand, but instead of Kafelnikov on carpet? :confused:

LOL @ ys! :D Well, I have has some Cashews today! ;)

But I should have specified that I think Youzhny should replace Kafelnikov in Davis Cup singles on clay, not carpet.

ys, Youhzny instead of Safin? :confused: I can see you've been eating some nuts, too! ;)

I think his backhand can be effective on hardcourt as well. It is very well disguised and if he can flatten it out more it will be very effective.
