I was pulling for Kolya to win. I think he could have beat Murray on another day. I believe he has a good h2h against him. Not having enough match play due to injury and a grueling Nalbandian 3-setter did him in.

Funny picture, that. You always get those 'crowns' at the MC tourney, and it seems like the photogs aim for those angles deliberately.
