Youzhny and his one hander will take Kubot to the woodshed! 3, 4, and 2.
Have you seen Kubot play lately? I think it w/b harder than that. Kubot has a bit more of a net game than most players on the tour these days. Tho I agree Youzhny will probably win, it w/b mostly because of Kubot's failure to close at the end. He had a very close match with Troicki in Doha in which he failed to convert several match points, mostly because of fear of success, I believe.

I'll vote for Kubot in 5 just because I want him to win! :)

Djok has a nice easy ride into the quarters to face who knows, but I bet he wont want to see Haas.
Thanks, Dude! :)
I looked at that schedule just a couple hours ago, and they hadn't announced it at that time. Too bad. Even for Kubot, although I assume he'll get enough practice in his dubs matches.

Kubot lost to Nole in final of Serbia open last year and it was a close match. If he brings his A game and believe - Joker better be 100%. Luk in 4 if Novak gets out of breath.

Good point! That was on clay, and it was a close one. Here, Kubot beat Zverev in straights, for what that's worth ...... Not sure what form Kubot's in atm, but Novak's not quite in form yet, so that could be a good one...

Hope this doesn't get me in trouble with the mods:

Does anyone who does the online betting know? Would you lose a bet for MY in this instance? ATP doesn't count walkovers as wins.

Ic, it is quite disappointing :( had been rooting for YZ since the Gasquet match and he has to withdraw when facing a seemingly "easier" opponent
Hand started to hurt in the first match against Richard
Gasquet - said the Russian, who at press conference
after that meeting came with a ice pack.
But then he shrug off this problem and played in pain with Jan Hajek. After match he consulted doctor and learned that he can play with pain but may risk serious consequences.

Get well soon Misha!
(*secretly wishing he had retired from Richie's match* )

At least some nice points for Kubot.

So this Kubot guy has made it to the 4th round of singles and is in the 3rd four doubles (of which he is seeded 5).

He's made it to the 4th round without playing any seeds and still has that chance if Djokovic has a shock loss to Istomin. How funny :D

Kubot pushed Djoker to a TB in the final of the Serbia Open, so he won't be a complete pushover if they meet next round.

Too bad we won't see a Youzhny-Kubot match, though :(
