That´s a good looking entry list! Shame I won´t be going there...and the WC`s definitely went to the right players. Always better to give them to the young guys, instead of Ketola or Tero Vilen, for example. If Vilen wouldn´t be from Tampere, he wouldn´t be playing for a WC in the first place..

Yes, it seems they indeed have one :help: Though it's for free while a ticket for men's matches is 20€ :rolleyes:

Challenger qualifying cannot be much weaker than this...good that Goransson and Ryderstedt are in the same section, otherwise both would have been close of qualifying.

And by the way, looks like the final Wild Card goes to Henri Laaksonen.

laaksonen is perhaps finlands biggest talent IMO... watched him in a 15k futures last year in helsinki... some story behind the guy aswell...!

I guess all Finns except Heliövaara have a chance to win their first round match. Timo Nieminen even has a 3-0 h2h over Juska. :p

I have also hope for Heliövaara/Kontinen to beat Cipolla/Vagnozzi tomorrow. It just sucks that two of the best teams are facing each other, when there are so many poor teams.

I would not be so optimistic...would be great to have one Finn winning first round. That is likely maximum. Laaksonen would have had good chances against 3 of 4 qualifiers but Ryderstedt is better than many of the main draw players. His ranking is far from the quality of his game. His kick serve is amazing and should win matches in higher levels than Challengers. His backhand is likely letting him down...Timo's matches against Juska are not very recent. Juska's game is going forward and Timo's not.

Anyway funniest that can happen in a Challenger is this doubles match:
Kiikkinen & Vikman [FIN, WC] vs. Berlocq & Hernych [ARG/CZE, 2]
There is 4.0 rated 48 years old player trying to beat professionals....this match should be played away from the public as it has nothing to do with ATP standards.

This is the typical problem for doubles competition in a challenger. The quality is poor, so you can find players there who almost are not able to hit the ball :p

It is much more typical for Futures...Challenger doubles have normally reasonable cuts. During summertime there is anyway quite a lot of tanking if a player loses in singles.

Traditionally not...often you have to rely on results/draws once a day. This year the facilities are far better than before and maybe this will allow better chances of updating scores as well. Let's hope so...

results of Finnish players could be available set by set basis...but nothings guaranteed.

They changed the venue of the tournament this year I think. I really liked the old one, but the new one seems to be bigger.

Yesterday they put a pathetic women's qualifying match on center court at 11am, which lasted at least 2.5 hours. It's not acceptable that a women's 10k qualifying match delays the start of a men's challenger event.

The new venue is much bigger with 4 match courts and 4 practise courts. Also the new Center Court has a capasity of 1500. It's a nice upgrade to the old venue and the tournament has potential to grow into a bigger event in the future. Btw, the courts are playing much faster than the old ones.

Why bitch about the women's event? :shrug: All the mens matches are played on the bigger courts, the women will play in the parking lot if necessary.

Juho :sad:

Maybe he and Juska have a small chance in doubles at least. But the only real Finnish hope are Heliövaara/Kontinen, who can reach the final.

Juska should call it a career, but not Timo? :unsure:

Nieminen is a unique pusher with touch, I hope he will keep playing. He played every day since last Tuesday and was dead tired after the first set. It was a bad decision to let him play on Monday.

I said last year already that I don't see Paukku as a good doubles player. He just can't volley. Juska on the other hand can do one thing above average and that is volley. Still they had absolutely no chance it seems.

Kunnap/Nieminen beat Gard/Montcourt. :spit: :woohoo: Brilliant chance to reach the final for Harri/Henri.

Seems like Pashanski had his own show(once again). He throwed racket, cursed to ref and then went to sit down stands. Refused to continue and only continued after supervisor came to calm him down. Reason was quite good tho, ref had points calculated wrong. So when game was actually 5-3 and 40-30, ref gave set for his opponent. After that Pashanski went ballistic and ref gave him another warning and because of that he lost the set. Well after that it all went down... still good coming back. Sad that his mentality is so negative.
