Has anyone been watching his matches?

Is he taking the initiative in baseline rallies a bit more, combined with his staple consistency? Has he beefed up his serve a little bit?

I think so. Today's final was not such a high quality match, but Jarkko used most of his opportunities. I agree with you, he is taking more control of the rallies, he is not just hitting the ball back to where it came from. And his first serve is better than before. His second serve is not as bad as it seems, it seems to have a wicked spin on it. Ancic tried to attack on Jarkko's second serve a couple of times but ended up hitting the the ball way out. But still, the shot he needs to work on the most is his second serve I think.

I'm really glad that Jarkko won his first title, now it's not a burden anymore. He will go far in the AO!!!

:wavey: I agree. Jarkko has found a good balance between aggression, control and defence. He's making a lot of good decisions on the court. :yeah:

Congratulations Jarkko!! :yeah:

I thought he would be tired from yesterday's match (which was a great one against Olli) but obviously he's playing well and finally (!!!) a title :)

I'm laughing at the fact that the Argentine commentators were convinced Nieminem had won 4 titles already and mentioned it quite a few times. :rolleyes:

LOL, I guess he misread the stats. :lol:
Jarkko had been in 4 finals and lost them all.
Congrats to Jarkko! Well done! :yeah: He is in a great shape right now.

Awww Raver & Co, I'm sooooooo sorry. I'm soooooooo sad about Mario. :bigcry: :bigcry: :bigcry: :bigcry: :bigcry:
But I'm sure Mario WILL start winning titles soon. :D :D

it seems Jarkko was in total control in the final...hopefully this hurdle will give him confidence for whatever is ahead.

Congrats to Jarkko for eventually winning his first title and as for Ancic, whenever he loses he is an idiot and a choker, when he wins he is the greatest thing.

Nieminen was clearly superior in this match and good for him, now he needs to build on that.
