Re: Nieminen beats Verdasco in 3, makes Finnish tennis history!

First of all congrats to Nieminen on reaching his first grand slam quarter final. Hopefully he can do one better and peel some potato

But what the hell was Verdasco doing out there today? This was by far the worst performance I've ever seen from a professional tennis player!!

I agree, as much as Jarkko deserved it, Nando certainly helped him along the way. Good luck against Hewitt!!

Verdasco plain old threw the match away. In the end Nieminen was playing like a club hacker and just let Verdasco hit 3-4 UE per game.
