Re: Week 31: Tampere, Finland [Entry List]

1st wild card goes to Juho Paukku FIN, ATP ranking 709, semifinalist here in 2004. Veli Paloheimo, tournament director says: Juho is one of few finns who is trying to make tennis his profession and a wild card is helping him to achieve his goals. Another decicing factor was his previous success in Tampere adds Paloheimo, a former finnish top player (ATP 48 in 1990)

Re: Week 31: Tampere, Finland [Entry List]

3rd WC to Peter Luczak

It's good to have atleast one Top 100 player here

4th WC will probably go to a Finnish player

Re: Week 31: Tampere, Finland [Entry List]

I hope Zverev's gonna make it. He played well at Umag, great performance against Serra, a bit of bad luck against Volandri.....Mischa seems to be in a good shape

I'd be shocked to see even one of them qualify

All the decent 'prospects' have main draw wild cards

There are no special players from overseas...so why not. Kiiski should match Grambow (who could already lose to Rammal). Also on the top section there are decent players like Ketola, Vilen and why not Huurinainen with monster serve (which sadly seems to be rather easy to read). It is a pity these guys are taking each other out...but one who comes out best will give Skugor a good match who will have two very easy matches.

On two bottom sections the surprise is not very likely.

Re: Week 31: Tampere, Finland [Qualifying Draw]

Nice qualifying draw. So many players from TaTS Keeping my fingers crossed for the Finns. Would be nice to see more of them in the main draw.
