Europe/Africa Zone Group II Play-Off: Luxembourg at Finland (July 18-20, 2008)

Gilles Muller will play here BUT not his doubles partner Mike Scheidweiler (and best lux clay court player) Gilles Muller's great preperation will be in Newport (they'll play in Finland on Clay) Nieminen will prepare it in Bastad....Clear thing that Muller will lose against Nieminen on clay.

4-1 or 5-0 if Muller plays against Nieminen at the first day

Mulles

Agassi, Nalbandian, Stepanek, Nadal, Almagro twice, Davydenko, Roddick, Tommy Haas on Hardcourt!!!! Goffin,Dimitrov, Isner --- > many more to come ..





with a good serv

for Muller playing here after Newport

Will we see a Harri/Henri doubles and maybe Paukku not in the team?

No Paukku in the Finnish team this time, which is probably a wise decision considering his recent results. Heliövaara making his DC debut.

Team Finland: Jarkko Nieminen, Henri Kontinen, Timo Nieminen and Harri Heliövaara
Team Luxembourg: Gilles Müller, Philipp Grandjean, Christian Durbach and Laurent Bram

the right decision from the captain

good chance for the youngsters to get their first DC-match wins

we will see. Bram and Grandjean could win against the young guys...but no guarantee. Jarkko is invincible in this tie for sure. The double could be interesting...but only maybe..as the best double player from lux is not playing..only one half of the team...muller...not scheidweiler. so we will see.

I'd be very surprised if we don't get atleast 4 wins in this tie. I don't know Bram or Grandjean, but I doubt they can beat Kontinen or T. Nieminen. In doubles we have Jarkko & Henri as a very potent team or the Kontinen/Heliövaara team of youngsters that play very well together. Btw, Muller commented yesterday that the courts were relatively fast for a clay court. The draw is made tomorrow around midday.
