Rather weak qualifying...there could be some quite easy points available at this event.

Is Heliövaara fit? No Paukku, Kontinen and Heliövaara would be a bit too much. But good to see Kiiski playing after he didn't play Tampere.

Not sure about the fitness but he seems to be playing. The main draw is available here:

It has been raining quite a lot in Vierumäki and play has been delayed a bit...the first result is Laaksonen vs Kiuru 64 64.

Sure looks easy...wonder which grip he plays with?

Todays winners are so far
Nieminen
Huurinainen
Kromann (3rd set tie break)

And it has been raining again and play has been delayed...

Kiiski vs Nieminen is a classic on the Futures tour. :p Timo won 3 matches with ease when he was very young, but since 2004 he always had massive trouble with Kiiski. The h2h on itftennis.com is 4-3 for Nieminen.

You can't expect him to play, but it's possible though. Brunken decided to do this for example. I guess Henri has big goals for the US Open. Anything less than the SF wouldn't help his junior ranking anyway.


Not unexpected for Henri L. I was really hoping for that win today, Künnap is just very beatable.

Poor scheduling :shrug: It all makes for a boring event, at least on paper.

it is not more boring then any other 10k Futures event. It is just futures!

Hmm...if Laaksonen can play here, then Kontinen also should have played here. He not needs to play this Canadian G1 Junior tournament this week.

Goransson having match yesterday from 11am until 6.30 pm seemed too much for him. Timo is having a good spell in his game, forehand is working better than usually. Serve drops still but that is no news.
