Winner of this tie plays South Africa (May 07-09) in second round for a place in World Group Play-Offs.

Poland would play at home against South Africa
South Africa would play at home against Finland

Indoor hard?

Poland is trying everything to lose and that may happen if Kontinen beats Przysiezny (tough, but possible).

very great matchup! But why poland did not choose clay??ß Henri K. cannot play on clay, Kubot has played a lot on clay. and Nieminen loves indoors....

Horatio Caine

Bizarre choice of surface, as others have mentioned. But maybe the decision was made before the start of the season? In which case, Kubot hadn't become the stronger player he is now, and maybe the Poles were trying to favour Przysiezny's matches (as he is a decent indoor player)? :shrug:

Undoubtedly a tough tie, and one of a couple to keep a particular eye out for over the weekend. :yeah: Poland with the strength in depth, but Finland still with the ability to win key rubbers (maybe Nieminen x2, and Kontinen). Poland doubles pairing obviously strong on paper, but Fyr/Kow aren't reliable.

Also may not be to Poland's advantage that Kubot did so well on the South American clay court swing (singles and doubles). Might be feeling a little tired, and he will only have a few days to adjust from clay to indoor hard courts.

Burro, we have Fyrstenberg/Matkowski doubles duo, Kow(alczyk) doesn't play;) To answer confusion -- we don't have venue with indoor clay court, it's very unusual at least. It's one nearby but court was installed in old hospital warehouse and there's awfully dark -- to be honest it's the only place with indoor clay in Poland I do know.

So we play on greenset, guys are working very hard tipping that kind od surface onto classic wooden basketball pitch. Our players love to play on hard as well as clay. Przysiężny won Helsinki challenger it's the biggest tournament won by Pole since 1982. Kubot made impressive results on clay but also on hard (Aussie, Beijing) and just wait for American tour ;)

Yeah, it's obviously the best match in Group 1. I've found some stuff about it. For Polish speakers, I don't know why there is so few of them here. About matches on the Baltic: http://www.sportowefakty.pl/tenis/2010/02/26/puchar-davisa-baltyk-sluzy-polakom and about Sopot http://www.sportowefakty.pl/tenis/2010/02/25/puchar-davisa-sopot-miasto-ukochane-przez-tenisistow/

Horatio Caine
03-02-2010, 08:19 AM
There is a Kowalczyk? Didn't know that.

But I did mean Matkowski. :p And my point still stands...they are a good team, but capable of losing many doubles matches they should win. Nieminen & Kontinen wouldn't be a mug pairing either.

I think either surface (indoor hard or clay) would benefit one of your players, while hindering the other. Kubot seems to be better on clay, but Przysiezny is best on indoor hard. Doesn't really matter too much...if Kubot can maintain his form, he should still have a chance to win singles on this surface.

03-02-2010, 03:05 PM
You'd like to say that you'd written Kow having Matkowski in your mind? :lol: It's impressive coincidence then cuz Kowalczyk is our 5th doubles player... doesn't have any chance for Davis Cup nomination at the moment :p

03-03-2010, 03:30 PM
For Poland, i thin Kubot and Przyziezny are legitime for singles. I think Janowicz, who won a Future last week, is a good substitute. For doubles, the best player is Kubot but can the poland coach will break the duo Matkowsky - Fyrstenberg ? It's a good duo but a duo Kubot - Matkowsky (or Kubot - Fyrstenbegr) is possible too. It's like in Great Britain with Skupski - Fleming and Hutchins.
For Finland, i think actually J. Nieminen and Kontinen should play singles and doubles. Timo Nieminen, experience player in davis Cup, can be an alternative in singles but i would have picked in the team Laaksonen in place of Heliovara. Laaksonen is better double player.

Labamba
03-03-2010, 03:40 PM
Heliövaara is a better doubles player than Laaksonen for sure and a great guy to have around for team morale. Laaksonen is better off playing futures than sitting on the bench here. Jarkko and Henkka will play everything, if there's no injuries.

Yes, it was meant to be a cheap joke, based on the English word 'cow'...because Marcin isn't the fittest player on the tour. :o

Next time I should research some more of the country's players... :lol:


....
I don't think it would be wise to give Kubot matches on Friday and Saturday (and maybe Sunday also)...tough on the body, and I don't think it would increase Poland's chances of winning the doubles. They should get the job done with Fyr/Mat anyway, and they are a proven pairing.

Przysiezny 7/6(5) 5/5*

From the commentary it seems like Michal's serve is on fire and Jarrko often goes down 15-30 on his own serve, both faced 2BP's.

Michal had a BP for 4-3 in the second, but the ball dropped on his side of the net after a net-cord.

Last time they played against each other in a Futures tournament (26.10. - 1.11.2009 Great Britain F 16) Kontinen won 2-0 so you can't talk about an easy win in the first place..

i was there today.

In the first set Kontinen was nervous like hell. He was broken twice and Nieminen lost his serve because Kontinen made ue. In the second set Jarkko and Kontinen played much better but Kontinen miss two easy volleyes in tb. He almost cried :sad: In the third set some magic returns from Jarkko.

In the last set Kontinen made few crucial mistakes that's why Finalnd lost.

BTW Kontinen can be next Jarkko insingles. Good serve, nice beckhand but still long way to go

I don't think Henkka is tired, but Michal would still be the favourite imo. Apparently he was really impressive against Jarkko and he surely has the home crowd's support. If this was a home match, I would fancy Henkka's chances a lot more, but now I really don't know what to expect from him. Jarkko still needs to win his match first though :p

I find it very funny as somebody posted "Przysiężny 6-3 info from the stands" when both official livescore pages were still at 4-1, and then both were adding single games to find the score 6-3 indeed.

Reportedly Kubot at the press conference marked he didn't like the controversial linesjudges footfault decisions throughout all the ties, all against the Poles. I read also an opinion from an ITF official yesterday, he said the same thing.

The person who has scores earlier than the official scoreboards says it's 5-4 for Przysiężny in the third :p.

Hi Nathii! :wavey: All these scoreboards can't be that much behind, can they? :scared:

Okay :scared: I have to go now anyway, so I can't follow any scores... :o Hopefully Henkka makes Przysiężny really really work for it :p

Yep 6-4 to przy was not true apparently, since Eurosport says 5-4 to continen in the third atm. So livescore = true score.

I'm confused, can this comment be true?

"Population in the stands has decreased by about 40% compared with a meeting with Nieminen Kubota."

Why would people leave during/right before the final match...

The same thing was in Fed Cup with Belgium. When after Radwanskwa, Domachowska was playing to make tie with Flipkens they were no really polish fans.

Google translate says:

"We wonder how to sustain Przysiężny kondycyjnie this game. The day before yesterday gave signs that it could no longer endure."

(Zastanawiamy się jak Przysiężny wytrzyma kondycyjnie tę rozgrywkę. Przedwczoraj dawał znaki, że nie może już wytrzymać.)

Is Przy starting to wear out?

I think here's two players who both have incredibly good nerves. I wouldn't pick either one as a favorite in that department.

4-4. Now we'll just wait for the winning break and that's it. Kontinen most probably won't break right back in case Przy manages to take it, so this is sudden death in my book.

terrible, i was waiting for poland to win the tie....back on friday ¨Przysiezny held matchpoint against Nieminen in the fourth set, and lost in five, today he was up 2-1 in sets and 4-1 in the fourt and lost again.....I thing this two loses got him down mentally in monts to come....

Really good win for Finns. Polish fought till last ball. Jarkko played over ten hours in three days, so maybe it is time for him and Henkka to rest for a while.

i was there yesterday and i was very surprised that half of people left after the 1st match :|
Poles lost because of their mentality... they couldnt accept some of judges' decicions and were very distracted by those... and Fins didnt care about it, they were both 100% foucused and they won. Well done for that and good luck in next games :)

Henka is so strong in daviscup!!! Have they a chance at South Africa??:confused:

it will be in South Africa, they will put a fastcourt by sure so no worries about this

Finland: J.Nieminen, Kontinen, T.Nieminen, Paukku, Heliovaara
South Africa: Van der Merwe, De Voest, Anderson, Coetzee, Moodie, Klaasen


J.Nieminen is favourite in all matches and Kontinen has chances against all southafrican players, doubles is winnable but look like the hardest point (v Coetzee/Moodie)


last time Anderson defeated Jarkko in Finland :eek:
