FIN NIEMINEN, Timo [5] def SWE FIGUEROA, Pablo 7-5 6-2

I only had time too see 1 whole match today and it was the match between Patrik Rosenholm vs Ivan Vukovic, it was a very strange match. In first set, Vukovic played really well, his serve is like the other balkans players, really hard. He played very solid and Rosenholm made a lot of unforced errors. In the second Rosenholm started to play more aggressive and his one hand backhand was really nice to see, a lot of winners and Vukovic were stunned about this and lost the second set really fast. In the third set Rosenholm lost all of his game, nothing was working a lot of mistakes, and he shouted a lot and the match seemed to be over when Vukovic had the lead 4-1. But suddenly after he was shouting, he started to hit winners and he was up 5-4 after some breaks and he hold his serve and won 6-4 in third.

Tomorrow i´m gonna se Henri Kontinen, Ervin Eleskovic and the new Joacim "PIM PIM" Johansson, he´s name is Patrik Brydolf and got a WC for this tournament.

Ervin Eleskovic SWE vs Henri Kontinen FIN 6-4 6-4
Robert Gustafsson SWE vs Carl Bergman SWE 7-6 4-6 7-6
Paul Todd USA vs Benoit Paire FRA 7-6 6-3
Daniel Kumlin SWE vs Markus Eriksson SWE 6-1 6-2
Mathieu Rodrigues FRA vs Patrik Rosenholm SWE 3-6 6-4 6-1

The match between Kontinen and Eleskovic was the match with the biggest interest for everyone today in Gothenburg. Eleskovic won in straight sets, guite easily i must say, he seemed to have a good control on the match all the way through. Kontinen really tried to find some variations in his game to take out Ervin, but Ervin showed that he got some insperience that Kontinen clearly doesn´t have. This was a good game of Kontinen he tried his best but Eleskovic was the bigger number. I´m sure Kontinen will improve and raise in the rankings in the near future. He looks like a star, and me and my friends are sure we were watching at a coming star today.

The match between the first seed Mathieu Rodrigues against Patrik Rosenholm was another match of big interest. I saw the match with his father and a friend of mine. Patrik played really well in the first set, hardhitting forehand winners and variation of the backhand. One funny thing was that Rodrigues didn´t like that we sheerd for Rosenholm, he looked at us and clapped his hands ironicly after he won a point. Rodrigues came back in second, a lot of first serves went in, and some unforced errors from Rosenholm. Rodrigues won easily the third set.

Maybe Rosenholm is about to train with Tomas Johansson on thursday-friday. To train with an Australian Open winner isn´t that bad. :)

He need a sure-footed partner for doubles and then he may concentrate on doubles and up a level to Challengers. I don´t think Rodrigues was the best partner for him.

yep, he might stick to a partner and maybe Rodrigues wasn't the best partner for him, although the French has some decent results in doubles and is a better player in singles :p but today he could be tired and became the weakest link of the team.
