Nieminen also has to play the doubles final in Sydney.

But I doubt he will pull out of the Australian Open.

Re: WWW : AO R1 Nalby vs Nieminen

Nalbandian in 3 with the way sharrko has been serving

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Shit matchup. I wanted both these guys to win a few rounds.

Re: WWW : AO R1 Nalby vs Nieminen

Nalby in 3, max 4.
I would have leant towards the Argentine even if Nemo was going to be 100% fresh, but with the Finn having to play singles and doubles final in Sydney on Sunday, he basically has more or less no chance of actually winning this first round.

Re: WWW : AO R1 Nalby vs Nieminen

Don't underestimate finish sisu. But even a fresh Nieminen would have his hands full so....have to go with Nalbandian in 3

Re: WWW : AO R1 Nalby vs Nieminen

Going with Nieminen in 4, MTF is overrating Nalbandian as usual.

Re: WWW : AO R1 Nalby vs Nieminen

Really should be played on Tuesday.

Saying that lets say it rains in Sydney and they don't play the final Sunday, what happens?

Re: WWW : AO R1 Nalby vs Nieminen

Jarkko got so screwed with the schedule here. Pity because, if the rain hadn't come, I'd pick this to be a 5-setter.

As it is now, Nalbandian in 3 (or less)
