2R E/AII - Finland vs Bulgaria



FINLAND - BULGARIA (Helsinki, red clay)

FINLAND
68. Jarkko Nieminen
212. Tuomas Ketola
648. Lauri Kiiski
818. Tommi Lenho


BULGARIA
340. Todor Enev
441. Ilia Kushev
562. Radoslav Lukaev
587. Yordan Kanev


Finland is playing with team of the 1st round team including Jarkko Nieminen, Tuomas Ketola, Lauri Kiiski and Tommi Lenho. As in March, there are again some good players (Paukku, L.Ketola, T.Nieminen, Rämmal), who are on Future entry lists in that week. Lenho's form could be enough for the Bulgarians, cause he won the Finland F1 future, beating a top500 player.

I hope the clay won't be a negative factor. Jarkko is playing 5 tournaments in a row on clay at the moment, so maybe it was his choice to play this tie on clay as well. But the problem is that Ketola hardly wins a match there, which is the chance for the Bulgarian team. Another bad news is that Tuomas got a knee injury in week 26, I hope he will be okay.

This is going to be an interesting tie, because there is a little chance for Bulgaria to beat even Nieminen/Ketola, on the other hand Finland would have even a chance without their two best players.

Re: 2R E/AII - Finland vs Bulgaria

On the Daviscup-site, Ivaylo Traykov is in the team instead of Kanev.

At the moment, I expect Nieminen/Lukaev and Ketola/Enev to play on Friday.

Thanks to all voters!

Re: 2R E/AII - Finland vs Bulgaria

Tuomas Ketola - Todor Enev
Jarkko Nieminen - Radoslav Lukaev
T.Lenho/L.Kiiski - I.Kushev/J.Kanev
Jarkko Nieminen - Todor Enev
Tuomas Ketola - Radoslav Lukaev

So the tie starts with that dangerous match. Enev has to win if they want to have a chance. Come on Tuomas!

Re: 2R E/AII - Finland vs Bulgaria

The bulgarian players don't stand a chance against Nieminen. Both games will be 3:0 because of his class and great performance on clay.

Our first racket Enev prefers faster surfaces in last years and specially hard. But the thing is Ketola is too poor on clay. He may have some problems with Enev and even more with Lukaev which favourite surface is clay.

Interesting fact is that Enev and Nieminen were doubles partners in 1999 (USA F16 Futures).

Nice fact, I didn't notice that. Good to hear that Enev likes the faster surfaces more, too.
