Last Week Dent won in his 1st finals; this week it's RUSSIA'S MIKHAIL YOUZHNY's turn

Great comeback! Mikhail hits some unbelievable dropshots all the time. They look like SUICIDE shots but they seem to go over the net just barely and they work well. Sort of like Danilidou's drop shots; risky, but stunningly effective. Glad to see this RUSSIAN HOTTIE winning in his FIRST FINALS!!

STUTTGART, Germany (AP) -- Russia's Mikhail Youzhny rallied from a three-game deficit in the fifth set to beat Argentina's Guillermo Canas 6-3, 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 Sunday in the final of the Mercedes Cup.

The 20-year-old Youzhny, playing in his first final, earned $64,850 for winning the clay court event.

A drop shot from the back line started Youzhny's comeback, setting up the first break in the final set. He sealed the win on his second match point, firing a powerful forehand into the open court after a weak service return by Canas.
