Somalian Refugee blogs from Stockholm (THRILLING REPORT ON PIMPIM !!!)

Tennistic story from the central court

As Adam Chadaj swayed gently through the corridor and emptish auditorium started to be filled with the human tribe, the gentlemen Nieminen and Llodra began their battle. The Frenchman Llodra was more remarkable at the beginning not only because of his eye-killing wild orange shoes. Big, clever serves supported by the next shot were enough against Nieminen in the first game. Soon we got acknowledged the left-handed Finn can send the 200 km/h service with the ease of saying 'whooa', but Llodra managed to respond to it somehow. Ergo, the ball exchanges were more interesting, and most of them won by Nieminen, who got the backing of fellow Scandinavian spectators. Throughout the first games it was easy to notice all the advantages and disadvantages of the match played indoors on the fast surface. On behalf of the first ones we shall put wonderful Llodra's service, just like Nieminen's reflex and spirited topspin. While the second ones were the breaks between first and second serve longer than rallies.
At the lead 3-2 Llodra had the breakpoint thankfully to tasty volleys. Still, Nieminen defended himself with even more delicious passing shots in next points. Encouraged Finn continued his streak, to go ahead with 4-3 after stylish breaking his opponent. The very high-leveled set ending didn't change much in the scoreline, Nieminen won 6-4. Short medical treatment for Llodra's left arm before the last game couldn't have affected it much.
Nevertheless, already at the beginning of second set the Frenchman's face expressed the deep thought: 'I'm on a lose, would love to step outta here, but I'm playing doubs with big Wayno today, so I'm not allowed'. That famous of killing a bird player in the act of desperation and due to lack of flying objects indoors tried to repeat the witty manevre on the lineswoman but even at this he didn't succeed. After the one man show, Nieminen won the second set also 6-4.

Srichaphan - O. Rochus

Swedish people love coming to Thailand and Paradorn Srichaphan loves coming to Stockholm, where he usually plays well. The Thai had today at the hotel's breakfast a hard deal against a coffee machine. His matchup with Hercules Poirot's compatriot and height sharer Olivier Rochus wasn't supposed to be easier.

Srichaphan was leading the exchanges, and the small Belgian managed to keep ball in charge - affording a winner sometimes, sometimes getting an opponent's unforced error as a gift. Was quite rich in the gifts, so broke for 2-1. Srichaphan appeared as a player who has strong shots, but not finishing one. Seeks power in regularity from the baseline, but misses his targets. Finally - runs a lot, but only on the account of energy waste. Clever Rochus realized his rival was in a lull, so kept on playing 'whatever' quality shots, to make him throw away. This is how Olivier Rochus grabbed the first set 6-2. Srichaphan's brother didn't look like in seventh heaven.

The second set started with the eye of the Thai-ger not sharpened still, so its owner finished the first service game with two doublefaults. Perhaps it made the Belgian feel relaxed, because he lost the break right away. At the same time, Srichaphan's game went on a rise, as he was backed *Very good Para, very good!' by someone from tournament's organization. When leading 3-2, he gave us a lesson how to blow the points, and breakpoints in particular (wasted for of them, lost game in the consequence). This could have been a turnover, as soon Rochus broke and shouted 'come on'. No way, they just started to treat the services like a WTA doubles team does. No surprise the set's winner was decided in a Thai-break and we witnessed the third set.

All of those who decided to watch it and thought that have already seen everything, surely didn't count some spectacular defends from 15-40 or 0-40. Like the score shows (6-2 Rochus), one player was more successful in it that the other.

Few sentences of Söderling - Björkman (because it's not worth more)

'One hour Söderling' - said a press office's man and departed in a search of Nieminen. Should have stayed to see how wrong he was. Söderling won in 49 minutes. The score - 6-0 6-2.

Massacre can be a good word to describe what considered as not world's nicest Söderling did to fan's favourite Björkman in this all-Swedish confrontation. If the older one, blogging from this week Björkman tried to play a shot, most likely it was netted. If the younger winner was to play a pass, it landed in the court, and even next to the line. Only at the beginning of the second set the more experienced Swede was trying to catch up in the match - as the score shows: unsuccessfully.

And later Philipp Petzschner scared away the children who innocently were asking him for autographs. Yeah... it was definitely the most dangerous action during Söderling - Björkman battle.

Nathii, keep having a great time there at that absolutely lovely tournament of one of the most wonderful cities in the world... *sigh*

Re: Somalian Refugee blogs from Stockholm (new - Rochus d. Srichaphan report)

well, one doubles match took out the chance from me to see full singles hits on central court... but what is going on at the moment in the stands for Johansson is just unbelievable!!! i've never heard SUCH a support and though after Fyrstenberg - Moya I've heard everything.

Well, sorry for focusing on tennis but in my life for websites I've written enough of what players are eating. To those who it might concern, Mnaco had today for breakfast whole big plate of grilled sausages.

Re: Somalian Refugee blogs from Stockholm (new - Rochus d. Srichaphan report)

General impression on Johansson - Nadal tie-break.

Imagine bunch of homeys in identical hockey shirts. Imagine that people are let into auditorium after either beers or champagne. Imagine wooden stands to be jumped on and make incredible noise. Try to listen to such noise. Imagine the claps after the player nets his first service. Then think of a player whistled down while jumping and intimidately shouting 'vamos'. Easy? Welcome to Stockholm. Nadal was even scared to check his socks and did it only once in the tie-break. Cold and calm as ice Pim Pim Johansson, led to the fighting spirit of spirits by musical company, managed to deal with everything that was bad. The injuries. The opponent. Guess who's back... back again... Pim Pim's back... tell a friend.

guess who's back
guess who's back
guess who's back...
