Hopefully all these good players are coming here, especially Baghdatis!

No Finnish players getting in directly though.

I hope there will be a WC vs WC in the first round as in Tampere. I don't see another chance for a win.

There is always the chance for an upset and some players might be tired after a long season when they come here.

Btw, who do you think will get the WC's?

Re: Week 46 - Helsinki (FINLAND)

I would give them to T.Ketola, T.Nieminen, Kiiski and Paukku.

Paukku will get one for sure

Kiiski should get one - he is no.3 in Finland this year and was 2nd round last year

T.Ketola should get one if he wanted to play

I fear Timo N. won't get a WC. I'm also not sure about Jarkko, is it sure that he won't play? Even if not, Timo won't get one I fear.
Lassi Ketola is such a player who gets WC all the time. Last year in Geneva, Tampere and Helsinki + a DC nomination and this year in Tampere - and he hasn't played that good I think. Niklas Bucht is also an option - he tried hard this year and needs some help.

I just hope there won't be a bad surprise like Heliövaara last year. It was absolutely senseless to give him a WC for a Challenger.

So my final prediction is: T.Ketola, L.Kiiski, J.Paukku, N.Bucht

My little brother's friend, whose coach in tennis is Tapio Nurminen (I guess you, JMG, know), had heard that Jarkko might play Helsinki if he didn't success in Paris. This is of course unofficial information.

If you`re not gonna shoot, you`ll always miss.

Marat Safin
Mario Lemieux

Roger Federer

Carlitos Tevez

Simo Eerikäinen

Re: Week 46 - Helsinki (FINLAND)

Some info on the WCs. Juho Paukku has received the first wildcard! But then the bad news, the organizers have promised two WCs to some Russian players who are yet to be named. This is sad, because it means that only two Finnish players are going to get directly into the main draw.

Bad news again and again... But at least the chance is getting bigger that a Finnish player can qualify. Maybe this was the reason that Timo went to Australia? I would be surprise if he came back after only two weeks. Somehow he deserved a WC here.

Yes, this was really bad news. Why in the world do the organizers give 2 WCs to some unknown Russian players, when there are many Finnish players in need of one? I just don't get it, this is not the way to help young Finnish players gain more points/experience from tough tournaments. And I'm sure the two Russian players won't attract more crowd than a couple of Finnish players would do!

Btw, is anyone from MTF planning to go to this tournament? I'm quite sure I will go, if anything surprising doesn't come up.

Re: Week 46 - Helsinki (FINLAND)

I wonder if Jarkko will play? It will be good for the tournament if he does, but as for the 2 Russians well I don't see the Russian tournaments giving WCs to Finnish players.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
