lol @Mayer

Tampere is his favourite tournament after Wimbledon and Sopot.

Looks like Timo Nieminen gets direct entry, if he isn't in any other event. Would be also nice to see Paukku, Laaksonen and Micke Kontinen in it.

not great for the Finns

Henri with Q, Heliovaara with JHG who is without any form, Timo with Alund who is not unbeatable only Micke and Juho are players which can have really hard draw even if Micke will play with somebody from QS, but Kontinen, Heliovaara and Timo has real chances to go through first round if this red clay is very fast, bcuz I don't how is it there in Tampere.

If Kontinen had played with Heliövaara here, they would have been top favourites for the title. But Heliövaara/Paukku have won 11 in a row, so hopefully they also have a title chance.

Oscar FIXERnandez ? :confused: Ahahaha :D He is mug this year, player who you can't trust. I pick Fixernandez to that category players who doesn't have motivation to win. This is normal because he is 32 years old and his career will have end very soon. So now he doesn't think about rankings, wins and he thinks only about money. No respect for this mug and i can't read calm your bullshit about Oscar.

07-29-2010, 04:35 PM
Today Oscar was Hernandez, not FIXERnandez :) Of course, Zopp is weak player when compare him with Oscar on clay but this match showed that estonian is not so weak as i thought before this match. Zopp played few good futures on clay and maybe our neighbour will be not bad challengers level player. And of course, the main point is that tomorrow king will be very tired after these 3 sets today, remember that he is 32 years old.

Filo V.
07-29-2010, 05:31 PM
Zopp probably played the best match of his life. I'm just glad Oscar won. Oscar may be tired, but at the same time, he does need the matches, as he kept losing R1 until this week. This win should bring him some confidence and hopefully better feel on the court. He's by far the best player in the draw remaining; he should win this event.

Horrible may be a little strong, but he's not very good. Oscar should be a level higher than Eric. Oscar is gone, but bad back and all, his natural talent level is good enough to defeat Prodon. I mean, if he couldn't play with the back he wouldn't, but the fact he's still playing tells me he still is out there to compete, and that should be enough for the W.

Is there anywhere that the livescores can be seen?

I don't agree. Prodon's main problem is motivation and being focused; he often takes the Tour as a complete joke, in my opinion, and his results in the last two years have reflected that. On clay, he could be a solid Top 100 player much like Hernandez has been. The two should be quite equal.

That may be why I think the way I do, because every time I've seem him he plays sort of..........the way you described his attitude as. Literally every time I've seen him he's played poor, poor attitude, very hit and miss with his shots. I know he had a good junior career. I don't know, I guess I need to see him again.

I'm really just sad though, I wish Oscar would get himself back to ATP competition but it's probably not going to happen.
