Youzhny was in fine fettle against Gulbis.
Last year, the beginning of the hardcourt season was worrying when he was able to play just the one match at Toronto, then went on to lose to Chardy in the 3rd round at Cincy.
We all know what happened after that.
The difference is that this year Andy managed to get four doubles matches under his belt in Montreal as well as two singles, so I'm hoping for a better showing this time, although it seems that when Andy does well in the Rogers Cup he doesn't do so well in Cincy - maybe due to the fact that he hasn't had much time to acclimatise to the court and weather conditions.
Youzhny was playing very well against Gulbis, so I'm expecting a tough match here.
