of Russia will be looking to have a great run at the French Open on the clay in Paris this year and earn some vital ranking points.
Earlier this year Youzhny helped Russia reach the Quarter finals of the Davis Cup as they defeated India 3-2 in the 1st round of the world group Youzhny won both his singles rubbers.
Youzhny is seeded to meet the British Number 1 Andy Murray in the 4th round which would be an intriguing contest should it materialise.
Yesterday Murray managed to come back from 2 sets down to beat the Frenchman Richard Gasquet it is the 2nd time Gasquet has been beaten from 2 sets to love up by Andy Murray.
The Scot also hit back to beat Gasquet in the 4th round of Wimbledon in 2008 before losing to Rafael Nadal in straight sets in the Quarter Final, Nadal went on to win the title for the 1st time.
