Sydney R1: Nieminen def. Lalo 6-2 7-6 (9)

Great for Jarkko

He now has a pidgeon in Lalo . H2H 5-0 on the ATP level. (1-0 in Challengers). Next up Chris "red devil" Guccione, or Bird... I mean Berdych. Then, if he wins again, probably Tsonga (again)...

Hope Jarkko will be able to defend at least some of his points from last year, so that he will make it to the Main Draw of the Masters events... His last year was plagued by illnesses (which also resulted in a loss of confidence), hope he has better luck this year.

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

Lopez lost first tie-break after winning 12 in a row - one of the best TB series in ATP history (Roddick holds the record with 18).

Jarkko always plays very good in Australia.
Could go deep here.

I was there in the first row for this match, and the first set was very poor from Lalo. He doubled faulted on the first point in his first two service games and didn't have positive body language at all. Very disappointing, 'cause as I don't mind Jarkko at all, I was wanting Lalo to pull through her. There were some entertaining rallies, a stupid heckler up towards the back and a very solid performance from Nieminen.

Vamos Rafa

He hates playing Berdych though, so it doesn't look too good. Hopefully Guccione can beat Berdych.

Jarkko needs wins like a junkie needs drugs. Hopefully will go far here.
