I guess Wilander will not show up with Bjorkman to the doubles match. Lindnstetd and Aspelin will play against Andyoni.

Aphex

Erlich/ Ram beat Aspelin/ Lindstedt as expected :shrug: . Now ToJo needs to take out that Dudi dude, so Bjösse can perform DC heroics again. :rocker2:

i think that Sweden will turn the tie and successfully goes to 1/4 finals.

Dudi-Tojo is going to be a huge match, though Björkman is no sure winner in the 5th rubber.

If Dudi does not win, there is no way Harel can beat Bjorkman.

:rolleyes: Tojo, why the slip-up in the third set? Sela couldn't punch above his weight the whole match. This tie is still according to expectations. Fifth rubber will decide. Go Björkman! :music:

Björkman should win, but with his lack of match practise this year, I wouldn't bet my house on it.

Jonas won so Sweden heads into the next round. Harel actually made it closer than I originally thought. Came out on fire but still.........

I agree whistling every time Jonas was about to serve in the tb was a bit too much. But they got nothing for it. Björkman was too strong mentally for them to get to him. :)

Now, it's muddy claycourt, Maradona antics and even crazier crowd behaviour in Argentina! :bounce:
