Sidney SF: Nieminen def. Istomin 76, 63

Nice match by the finnish. Is Jarkko getting back in his best form? He didn't play amazing players in this tournament but is good to see him making a final again.

Jarkko

Tiebreak was very entertaining. Jarkko won a huge point there at the net where Istomin drilled a ball close to the net crosscourt and Jarkko read it and put the reflex volley in . That would've given Istomin set point on his serve.

Istomin faded away badly at the end. Jarkko was serving even slower than usual...

Another final . And this time he actually has a better chance than in most of his finals, Baghdatis or Benneteau!

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

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

He'll probably play Baghdatis, it would be really awesome if it's... it would be a 'old times' match.

Can Nieminen improve on his 1-10 finals record?

Jarkko. Would have been more straightforward if he had held serve at 40-0 up in the first set before Istomin broke back. Hopefully he can take the title out tomorrow.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Istomin must be seeing nightmares about that tiebreak...several WTF points, which all went to Nieminen...
