The Withdrawal Method: Youzhny Out

Posted by gauloises1 on January 23, 2010

Australian Open radio is reporting that Mikhail Youzhny has been forced to withdraw with a wrist injury, giving a walkover to his opponent.

That means Lukasz Kubot is in the last sixteen of the Australian Open.

He just won’t die.

    This sucks, especially for Richie.

    This is the first photo where I think Mikhail actually looks hot, or maybe I’m not looking in the right places.

    I think there’s something a bit Sam Worthington-esque about Youzh in that shot. Although it could just be the buzz cut and stubble. I’m very easily thrown off that way.

    I’ve always had a thing for Youzh. I mean, he’s an angry Russian with beautiful eyes. What more could a girl ask for?

    And I agree with the Sam Worthington thing in that pic Nic- yummy =)

    A real shame for Mikhail- he was playing well here. He always has injury problems though.

    I find Misha to be quite attractive. And he is nice with fans.

    Dagnabit. I mainly just feel bad for Reeshie — couldn’t they have HIM play Kubot?

    Rules, schmules, people.
