Re: Henri Kontinen

If anyone's interested (I know Sombrerero will like this ) here's a vid of Henkka playing a challenge match against two professional Finnish snowboarders, Henkka is playing with a frying pan though . Henkka won the match, 6-4 6-2.

After the match, they ask Henkka about his plans. He says he's focusing on doubles for now and will start playing singles when/if the knee can handle it. If he can't handle it physically, he'll focus on doubles. He says his dream is to win a GS one day, either in singles or in doubles.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Henri Kontinen

yeah i saw it already on his twitter

but thanks for the translation

he uis only 10 spots away from his high career ranking in doubles. he will improve it pretty soon probably =D (maybe even with the 10 points he got this week from 15k+H semifinals in italy)

playing with siljestrom this week in como, good luck

Re: Henri Kontinen

So is it safe to assume he's given up with singles?

He hasn't, but currently his knee can't take singles. We'll see if it ever will...

Re: Henri Kontinen

he is still testing but he doesnt have a date where he can play singles again, yeah, maybe he wont be able to play again(but lets just not think about it please...), but at least he is playing doubles...i just hope he can keep playing tennis, its amazing watching him on the tour week after week again...
