Anyone with an access to MTV3 Max? A match report would be appreciated.

Re: ~Thread for the grass season (next: Wimbledon)~

Jarkko def. Russell 6-3 6-2 7-5

It was a routine win, the third set should have been 6-2, Jarkko switched off at 5-1* and had some trouble closing out the match. The serve was working nicely (about 9 or 10 aces) and the passing shots were on target most of the time. Russell didn't have his best day today and Jarkko had too much variety for the American to handle. Against Mayer, Jarkko needs to keep his concentration a little better, and a place in the 3rd round will be very much in his reach...

Re: ~Thread for the grass season (next: Wimbledon)~

Thanks for the report Ville

Good luck to Jarkko against Florian! I think he knows how to beat the tricky German. A year ago Jarkko still was afraid to keep up the tempo, but now I think he won't slow down to Mayer's level. He'll take care he doesn't become too passive with his game (except maybe temporarily...)

Re: ~Thread for the grass season (next: Wimbledon)~

Jarkko defeated Mayer 3-6 6-3 7-6(2) 2-6 6-3

I didn't see the match as it wasn't on a TV court , but Jarkko said he played well for three sets and the other two sets were quite bad. The result is what matters here and it was an important win for him. Youzhny in round 3 on Saturday

Does Jarkko play the Mixed for the first time in his career? I couldn't believe it, when I saw him in the draw.

I think it really is the first time for Jarkko

I guess he did it for Emma, so she could have some extra matches at Wimby after being knocked out in the first round of qualifying

One of the best wins, if not the best, in Jarkko's career!

I watched some of the match, Jarkko was absolutely on fire at times, he served out the match without any problems!
