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.
