What is he trying to do????<br /> <br />I was following the scoreboard, shit, he took the initiative and yet gave it away.<br />Now, seems Ferrero is gaining in confidence while Yevgeny seems to be losing it.

6-5..<br />Fight Yevgeny!!!

Whew, that was very close...<br />Yevgeny won the 3rd set tie-break by (7/5). <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Did not expect Ferrero to give him such a close fight. ys, how was the match overall?

Shall go back home tonight and watch the delayed telecast to view this match.

He didn't have to make it that farking close. Why do these guys need extra motivation earning in a single match almost as much as Tier I WTA tournament winner.

Yevgeny's level was going up and down all the match. He was making all the play, winners, errors. Once he adapted to Ferrero's game, Ferrero didn't have much to say in the match, Yevgeny should have beaten him pretty easily in the third, but he was playing too lazy at 3:1, 4:2, having the breakpoints, had good chances to double break and finish it off. Ferrero looked completely hopeless by then. But with some easy errors he let Ferrero back into the match, then suddenly it got pretty close. He did get things under control in the tiebreaker. Ferrero was playing about the same level during all match, Yevgeny's level was all the differnece.

This group can get into some nasty scenario for Yevgeny. I expect him to beat Goran, and expect Guga to beat Ferrero. And that would mean that Kafelnikov would actually need, even with two victories, to beat Guga as well to qualify for semis, and that could be difficult. If Guga beats Ferrero, he'll get his confidence back. And motivation to end year as #1 can bring the best out of him.

ys, Yevgeny answered all your questions in his post-match interview. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

<br />Yeah, he was up and down during the match. But I like the way he fought back to win the 3rd set tie-break. It was funny seeing his facial expressions when he had doubts about the net during the 2nd set, he tried to serve but stopped a few times and starring at the net peculiarly.

Hopefully he can get over his jet lag and play better against Goran. With Goran playing rather well yesterday, I will expect another hard fought match.

GO Yevgeny!

Great match vs Goran.. Amazing first set. <br />Hopefully Zhenya won't make the mistake and plays Guga the best he can. After all, it is not an exhibition. It is like one-off 20 points tournament. Yevgeny's chances of becoming #1 at some time<br />in 2002 are getting bigger and bigger. The only person that can prevent him from doing that at this point is Hewitt.

Well done Zhenya !!!!!!! , now it would be great to see him win all 3 round matches.

and revenge v Grosjean would be great and even greater to see him beat Potato man in the final.

That match was simply an awesome show of how Yevgeny can really play when he is at his element. <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <br />His focus was 100% and his execution of shots perfect.

Hope he maintain his 100% record against Guga..

Go Yevgeny! <img src="graemlins/kiss.gif" border="0" alt="[Kiss]" /> <img src="graemlins/kiss.gif" border="0" alt="[Kiss]" /> <img src="graemlins/kiss.gif" border="0" alt="[Kiss]" />
