I'm not 100% sure but Jarkko had some problems with his abdomen already last week. Playing 8 singles and 4 doubles matches during the past 10 days might have been a bit too much

Jarkko predictable after having played 12 matches in a week.
David good luck against Isner

Nothing happened
Nieminen was just tired as I expected. It's normal to be so
He reached the final in both singles and doubles in Sydney and only 1 day after he had to go to Melbourne and play against Nalbandian

Very good advertise for Australian Open Series. Scheduling Nieminen's match on Monday after two finals on Sunday in Sydney, showed it's not worth attending Sydney if you want to succeed at AO.

Too much tennis, too little time.

there really should be a special rule for scheduling the finalists of the week before an event. happens so often that these players go out directly in the first round of the next event...

classic scheduling from the organisers. Screwed Nemo over.
But he was always going to struggle here. He overplayed in Sydney entering and reaching finals of both singles and doubles and the rain delay didnt help...

Yet, had the match been tomorrow and Nalby still winning it, Nalby wouldn't have had the rest day like Isner, just because of his opponent's final. But, maybe also Isner's match should've been scheduled for tomorrow.
