Normality returns in the world, Gooch reverts back to mediocrity.

Sucks Good first set, was hoping he'd put up more of a fight in the second, oh well.

Re: Sydney R16: Nieminen def Guccione 7-6(8) 6-3

i was at this match.. he had a break in the first set and serving for the match.. then he decided to be humble at lose his serve..

he was playing quite well with his typical drop volleys but after he lost the first set 10 - 8. he just gave up..

Does anyone know how Fast Clay is after this loss, or is it too early to tell?? Is he at least stable? (well, has he ever been?)

The Gooch will be better at the Gooch golden slam.

Nieminen plays long tie-breaks really well.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Guccione's chances of finishing the year in the top 100 have decreased massively now.

I think was actually up a break twice in the first set, but didn't serve it out.

He certainly got a big problem, in fact with the loss of ranking points this week he may not even be able to enter most challengers, let alone ATP tournaments.

So he may be forced to play futures
