WWW: Montreal R1: (WC)Peliwo v. Nieminen

1st career ATP MD match for Filip. He's played better lately, this should be easy for Nieminen though.

Hopefully it's a good learning experience for Filip assuming he doesn't win

Nieminen is out of form so it's good chance for Peliwo.
It's like Pospisil - Chela Montreal 2011 match.

Pospisil was 21 back then and ranked around 150 in the world. Filip is just 19 and just cracked the top 400 this week(cracked the top 500 I believe last week for the first time)

It's probably more Raonic/Gonzalez 2009 though Raonic was a qualifier that year, not a WC(he got a WC into qualies)

Peliwo doesn't have a big serve like Raonic and Pospisil so every game will be hard to win for him if Nieminen isn't in shankmode.

Still i can see him troubling Nieminen.

Re: WWW: Montreal R1: (WC)Peliwo v. Nieminen

He could have gotten a more difficult opponent. I don't think Filip has the confidence to take Jarkko down though unless Jarkko is injured. Filip is a good kid though, and I hope for the best for him. It's tough to be a pro without getting some assistance. I think of all the wild cards Jack Sock has gotten. I'd like to see Filip have that kind of opportunity.

Let's not expect anything from Peliwo, but hope that he plays a good match.

yeah I was pleased with Nieminen. I was hoping for Bellucci or Andujar realizing those were his best shots at a win by far imo. Nieminen is definitely in the top 15 best draws though, but he'll have to play his best and hope Nieminen is off

Re: WWW: Montreal R1: (WC)Peliwo v. Nieminen

nieminen is one of the smarter players on tour and should definitely be to crafty for fillip at this point. Go with jarkko in 3 sets, something like 6-3, 6-4

Re: WWW: Montreal R1: (WC)Peliwo v. Nieminen

Jarkko has not played since Wimbly and maybe a bit rusty. Hope Filip can keep up and win a few games. It will be a great experience for him to play his first ATP MD match at home.

Actually, Nieminen is one of the toughest opponents for lower-ranked players because of his defense, fighting spirit, and court craft. All Nieminen-slayers have to have at least one big weapon, and Peliwo does not.

So 6-2 6-1

Re: WWW: Montreal R1: (WC)Peliwo v. Nieminen

They put Filip out to court 5, I figured he'd get NB court, guess not

is court 5 streamed? I doubt they put it on TV
