Here are Youzhny’s thoughts on Rafa via a French site. (Google translation).

Being left handed has advantages but also disadvantages. When a guy plays, he does not say “Here, Doe was left-handed, I do not like playing against him” or “I never got to play against a left-handed.” You can say “I have never been able to beat Nadal.” But not “I’ve never managed to beat a left-handed” (smile). I think we can make a lock on the name of his opponent rather than the fact that he is left-handed, or not.
