Still no thread? :confused:
Nieminen was up a break in the first set but couldn't serve it out at *5-4 then Wawa got on a roll and won the next 3 games.
Second set immediately a break for Nieminen, played much better and won 12 points in the first 3 games to just 3 points for Wawrinka (up a double break).

Third set was all Wawa... 3rd Swiss in the QF in Basel :worship:
Djokovic will be a hurdle which he will not pass though.

Still no thread? :confused:

i'd rather let stan fly under the radar and feed others to some hungry dogs.

Nieminen should really work on his 2nd serve :o one was 97 km/h..but Stan didn't know what to do with those slow serves...
Nieminen played some great points, but wasn't consistent enough throughout the match. Wawrinka was there and ready in the 3rd set when needed, playing a little more aggressive, so it was a deserved victory in the end.

3 Swiss players in the quarters, just great and just a great tournament:cool:

stan seems to always fly under the radar, then shocks people when he puts in a good/great tournament every now and again.
