Re: 2R Group II - Finland vs Latvia

Paukku bagelled Schukin last Sunday and showed some good form. He might be the better choice against Gulbis. Then Timo should get his match against Juska on Sunday.

Don't worry about that, he will not play anyway

This topic is a bit frustrating for me, because I was planning to go to Finland, but my stupid weekend in Bucharest, where I spent a lot of money and got robbed eventually, made me not to go there due to lack of money

So, let's hope Latvia wins this one, and then there will be another match-up in September

Speaking of chances to win, I think that Finns are 55-57% favorites in this duel.

Re: 2R Group II - Finland vs Latvia

Great idea of picking Paukku over Timo. He is in nice shape and I think he has a good chance of beating Juska on Sunday, if it's still a live rubber.

Finland 4-1 for me

I'm sorry to hear you got robbed

Ketola & Nieminen teaming up for doubles again, great. I think both Finland and Latvia have good chances to win but I believe in the Finnish team. Hopefully it's not going to rain, though... The weather hasn't been very good here in Tampere.
