Entries in Mikhail Youzhny (5)


US Open Day 1: Bees, Potty Mouths and Almost Upsets

Image credit: Anita Aguilar

In a day of 'almost' upsets, Nick Kyrgios managed to pull one off over 32 year old veteran Mikhail Youzhny. The dangerous Aussie faced the 21st seed out on court 17, and from what I hear it was a great match, (I caught the end of the second set at 3am... and went back to sleep). After winning the first two sets, Kyrgios let his foot off the pedal enough to allow Youzhny to storm back and claim the third set 6-2, but Youzhny failed to serve out the fourth to take the match to a fifth. Kyrgios took his opportunities in the tiebreak, something he's becoming quite well known for. Another thing he's becoming known for? Emotional tirades. Kyrgios earned three code violations for hitting a ball out of stands and two audible obscenities... one more and he would have been disqualified. Kyrgios apologised on Twitter for his outbursts.

Wozniacki Is On Her Way to #1 and Other Tennis Happenings

Prepare for it people.  By the end of the year, Caroline Wozniacki is going to be World #1.   I know, I know, *sigh*  we are going to have another "number 1" who hasn't won a major, but we've seen it before (JJ, Safina), and them's the brakes when it comes to the ranking system.  She's won 5 tourneys this year, and the system rewards people who play, unlike some of her, ahem, mysteriously injured counterparts.   She has been consistent when everyone else is faltering, so in that regard, good for her. (Not necessarily good for the WTA)

In other tennis news, Mikhail Youzhny has won his 2nd tournament this year, beating Andrey Golubev in the Malaysian Open Final, and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, who upset Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, went on to win his 2nd ATP title, defeating Jarkko Nieminen at the Thailand Open.

The China Open got underway today and began with a couple of upsets. Samantha Stousr and defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova were both defeated in the first round.


Video: Youzhny and Baghdatis vs. "The  Birds"

Very silly video of Marcos Baghdatis and Mikhail Youzhny visiting a bird park. I promise they are in it, but you must sit through some classic (and fabulous) Alfred Hitchcock first.  Beware!


Rafa is the Last Spaniard Standing: Who Woulda Guessed

No surpise here.  Rafael Nadal is the last Spaniard standing at the US Open, after defeating Fernando Verdasco in straight sets 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.  Initially is seemed that this match would go the distance; Fer came out smoking in the first set and was immediately up a break, which was the first time Nadal had been broken this tournament, but in typical fashion, Rafa found his form in the wind, and took the next 2 sets without Verdasco getting a look at another break point.
