I agree with JMG about the draw

If Finland can somehow defeat Cyprus away, I think we're finally heading for the Group 1 in 2008. But that's a big if.

R2 - P.KALLIAS (CYP) v J.NIEMINEN (FIN)

Saturday
R3 - M.BAGHDATIS / P.KALLIAS (CYP) v T.KETOLA / J.NIEMINEN (FIN)

Sunday

Paukku will probably be replaced by Timo Nieminen in the 5th rubber.

Re: Davis Cup

But Timo took care of it!

Timo's 2-6 6-2 6-0 6-1 win over Kallias takes Finland through to the 2nd round by 3-2!

At last Finland was able to win a tie even without Jarkko winning all three of his matches! I guess the last time it happened was back in 2002 when Finland beat Italy 4-1 and Jarkko didn't have to play at all on the final day (thanks to Tiilikainen who famously beat Sanguinetti in the opening match ).

Actually Finland has never before won a tie when Jarkko has lost a singles rubber. Timo is a true hero now!

Next it's going to be 2nd round against Latvia, and the tie will be played in Finland in July.

I'm sure they will play on clay, like they always do in July.
The Tali Tennis Center in Helsinki just got new clay courts last summer. Maybe they could build some temporary stands around them and play the tie there...

Tampere challenger will be played 28.7.-5.8. this year. So don't worry JMG and others - Tampere qualifying will not be played same time with Davis Cup.

The DavisCup Finland-Latvia place will be decided and announced 23th April.

I know the Tampere date, I just had a wrong DC date in mind.

Re: Davis Cup

They will play in Tampere indeed, just one week before the challenger starts.
