Madrid 1st Round: "El Fashionista" Koubek def. Nieminen 6-3 3-6 6-4

Koubek was leading 5-0 in the final and got broken twice before he broke again at 5-4. Close to another major choke. Courts must be very slow.

Nieminen comes back from *0-5 to *4-5 and then loses serve

The end was so funny. Hard to say who wanted more to lose!

The last deuce before the end the line referee called out a Koubek's volley. I thought he would start shouting again But the umpire made an overrule.

Koubek

Damn it Jarkko! This would be the time to hire a coach. His military service begins after Paris and that doesn't make things any easier. This might mean I have to pick up my racquet again and rescue Finland's tennis!

the season can't end soon enough for Jarkko

He saved 4 or 5 mp's with some terrific play and then made a horrible mistake on the last one, that sums it up pretty well. Jarkko needs to regroup during the off-season and have a fresh start next year.

What a comical ending, disappointing for Jarkko, but I am not going to complain about a Koubek win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

That final set was hilarious, but thankfully Koubek crossed the finishing line in the end.

Hope he can take out the bald one Ljubo, won't be easy.

Jarkko seems to be a bit of a mp saving specialist. I remember him saving something like 6 mps against Ollie Rochus in Auckland last year.
