Youzhny downed in Doha

Monday saw the First Round matches get underway in Doha, Qatar. Neither Rafa nor TMD were playing, and as a result there was approximately 19 people in the crowd. Bad show, y’all.

The only real shocking exit of the day was Russian headcase and uber hottie Mikhail Youzhny being ousted by Sergei Stakhovsky 7-6, 6-2. The first set was a hard fought affair, with the Ukrainian evetntually taking it on the tiebreak, 13-11. The next set, however, would prove to be the last, with Youzhny handing it over 6-2.

In good news for certain uber craxy fangirls, Ernie won a match. Yay!
