Prepare yourself Roger- The Colonel is coming

– For the first time in his career Mikhail Youzhny will be playing the quarterfinals of Wimbledon after beating Uzbek Denis Istomin in 5 sets.

It took 7 attempts in R4 [ 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2008 2011 ] but he finally did it. With this win he has played at least QF in all slams, something few active players have done ( Tsonga did it recently at RG), and it shows that his all around game adapts well to all surfaces, and that even well past his prime he’s able of making great results. And he has a good chance vs Federer, who has a back injury, but the swiss is a very bad match-up for the Colonel, who defeated Top-10 player Tipsarevic in R3.
