Well, at least Janko is having some success this week :mad: . I'm beginning to think I cursed the kid...lol. His last good run was in Torrance and the last thing I said to him was kick ass next week (Waco) :p . I know that Janko's inconsistent but still.

I forgot to mention that I can't get too excited about the Final appearance because this was Janko & Roko's first match all week. They had received two walkovers.

Nearly. They had to beat pair of local club players in the 1st round. And even managed to lose a set against them :rolleyes:

I guess they were only ones with their rackets. So why not give it a shot. Matti Manninen is ranked 37th in Finland. But in 70+ age group :D (only one Matti Manninen on our tennis server list) ( http://www.tennis.fi/Pelaajahaku2.asp ) (etsi = search)

Geez. If I had been there to play instead of Mr. Manninen, I´d had gotten ½ ATP points :D

:o Well, now I feel stupid...lol. I even remember looking at their first round score. They were supposed to play Marat Safin & Denis Golovanov but Marat pulled out because of an elbow problem. It was only the QF that they got a walkover from. Stupid me. Looking at too many scores at the same time :p .
