Yeah, I don't know if there's been some falling out between him and the rest of the team or what. I follow him on Twitter and he has always been pumped up for Davis Cup. I can't imagine him randomly deciding he needs to "focus on his doubles career" like the article says unless he knew he wasn't going to be picked anyway.

Anyway, that's that for another year. The atmosphere in the 2nd and 3rd matches was really dead, we needed to win every match where Nieminen wasn't playing and everyone knew the tie was done once McGee was beaten. At least we stayed up, I'm not sure how many more years we will unless at least one more player gets up to McGee's level.

Re: Europe/Africa Group II 2nd Round: Finland at Ireland (April 5-7, 2013)

I was there, I didn't take any pictures as my phone camera isn't great and when I zoomed in on the players it just came out crappy, and I'm afraid I definitely wasn't close enough to make out the player's racket brands

It was hard to read anything into Kontinen's performance, both because our doubles team was so poor - one half of the team is basically retired - and because he was a bit overshadowed by Nieminen. His movement isn't great and his serve is a little weak, but once he has time he can hit some nice groundstokes and he has great hands at the net, he hit some nice drop volleys.

Weird that you say Henkka's serve is weak, that's one of his best shots. Maybe he was just having a bad day. Hopefully the surgery and the injury haven't made his serve weaker...

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: Europe/Africa Group II 2nd Round: Finland at Ireland (April 5-7, 2013)

well, its clear henri didnt want to play. maybe harri should have played and retired after a couple of games so they wouldnt have been fined

anyway, do you know where i can find more pics from the tie? =D

Harri apparently had been suffering with the flu but doctor deemed he was fit enough to play. Yes I was there on Friday for the singles. Just haven't had a chance to upload my pics. I'll put them up soon
