WWW Sydney final: Benneteau vs. Nieminen?

Can Benneteau finally win a singles title? Will Nieminen win his second title? Benneteau is 0-5 in finals, while Nieminen is 1-10

Jarkko leads Julien in the h2h 4-0.

Re: WWW Sydney final: Benneteau vs. Nieminen?

Very close. But both players must feel the pressure, since they must know that this is one of the last opportunities to improve their finals statistics. And this time it's not a top 20 player across the net.

Hard to say. Hopefully Nieminen but I don't mind if Benneteau wins something finally.

Never ever give up

Re: WWW Sydney final: Benneteau vs. Nieminen?

Which match will be first, doubles' or singles' final? If doubles' final is first, I wonder how it affects to Jarkko's singles' final performance.

Edit: Men's final starts at 7:30pm just lake women's final, doesn't it? But estimated finish time is an hour earlier at 9:30pm and centre court matches start already at 4:30pm. So does that mean doubles' final is first?

Re: WWW Sydney final: Benneteau vs. Nieminen?

Strange to have two finals mugs in a final. Could well be a 3 hour+ mugathon, but despite everything else, I am guessing Sharkko in tight 3.
