To be honest i dont understand how mannarino is in the top 100 he has nothing from the baseline he is a pusher and his serve isnt great he is definately an overachiever

You need to see him playing well, today he was gone physically and mentally. But against Inser for example, he was amazing. At his best, he's got a really nice game to watch and a good first serve for sure, and is a very versatile player.

Very poor tennis being played right now.

I think if Berankis can hold the first couple of games, then he should definitely win, but he's vulnerable early.

Major hold there from Berankis. He's playing like shit but holding on. Grigor clearly isn't 100%, Rycka just needs to raise his level 10% and he will win this.

Grigor will make it. He'll either be in the 90s if he wins, or 106 if he loses, which should definitely be good enough, since there aren't many players available using PRs.

Dimitrov tanked at the end, but he wasn't tanking for most of the third set. He was being outplayed and he was just totally gone.

This is a great result!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yea, I'm so happy! Now both guys should be totally secure for the AO, and they can play ATP events where they belong. Just really really great result. Rycka has really stepped it up when the pressure was on this week, says a lot about his character.

Dimitrov gave up after his serve was broken at 1-2 in the 3rd. It was a nice match between two players that are ready for the jump to ATP tournaments in 2011.

Flyboy, are you sure that Dimitrov is in for the main draw entry list of the AO? With the points earned here he is going to be ranked close to the top 105. The same concerns for Berankis who is going to be close to the top 105 but if he wins tomorrow he will be in the top 100 and he should assure his place in the main draw entry list for AO.

Inspite of the defeat it was a good year for Mannarino overall who is going to be ranked in the top 90 next Monday. The same for Przysiezny.

Very nice tournament and great semifinals line up. Quite surprised with the low attendance.

Very immature behavior.

My friend is a physio at the tournament and he said that Grigor's coach (McNamara?) left as soon as he heard of the incident :lol:. Said something like "I refuse to be in the same cab with that kid, he's crazy!". He also complained about a MTO Grigor took in some other match, something like "That's no time to take a MTO, I should have a talk with him".

Please stop making things up. That's just childish. You don't like him, we understood that but some people believe your crap. Grigor is not even close to do things like that. And let me say that Grigor have very good relations with his coach. You are surely a 15 yo kid that wants some attention.

Why would anyone make something like this up? I don't know what happened there today, but something happened that's for sure. I heard some of the staff talking about Grigor's coach being really angry to Grigor about something, but that's all I heard when I was there this afternoon. Certainly no reason to call Lopez a liar here.

Why would he make something like this up? According to the tournament website Dimitrov was very angry at the end of the match. I remember seeing a video of him being a jerk to the umpire (can't find it, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about).

Very nice tournament and great semifinals line up. Quite surprised with the low attendance.

Yes, Grigor will make the MD. The cut off for majors being 104, Del Potro in with his PR, Gonzalez out. Haas isn't playing, Machi Gonzalez used up his PR this season, the only guys I see possible to enter the MD using PRs are Ancic (if he comes back) and Tursunov (if he has the PR available). So, he should be fine to make the MD, since usually there are 4-8 withdrawals.

This has been a great week for all four SF players for sure. Mannarino had a few bad weeks but performed well to get to the SF here. Przysiezny did what he needed to do to maintain his top 100 position. Berankis and Dimitrov did what was needed to make the AO. Hopefully Berankis can get the win and top 100 position tomorrow.

I was a bit surprised with the low attendance and the overall quality of the center court in Helsinki, it's smaller and less renovated compared to Slovakia last week, Orleans, Rennes, Mons. But I do know that there must be large crowds for Jarkko in doubles.

No reason for me to make stuff up, as I said I like(d) the kid. That's exactly what happened. I was there, he was like 5 metres from me. Went after the umpire. Coach left him because he was mad.

That's what happened, if you want to badrep me for telling the truth then fine :lol:. I have friends working at the tournament etc. so I get to know some stuff behind the scenes (i.e. the fine).

Yes, Grigor will make the MD. The cut off for majors being 104, Del Potro in with his PR, Gonzalez out. Haas isn't playing, Machi Gonzalez used up his PR this season, the only guys I see possible to enter the MD using PRs are Ancic (if he comes back) and Tursunov (if he has the PR available). So, he should be fine to make the MD, since usually there are 4-8 withdrawals.

This has been a great week for all four SF players for sure. Mannarino had a few bad weeks but performed well to get to the SF here. Przysiezny did what he needed to do to maintain his top 100 position. Berankis and Dimitrov did what was needed to make the AO. Hopefully Berankis can get the win and top 100 position tomorrow.

I was a bit surprised with the low attendance and the overall quality of the center court in Helsinki, it's smaller and less renovated compared to Slovakia last week, Orleans, Rennes, Mons. But I do know that there must be large crowds for Jarkko in doubles.

Thanks Flyboy :yeah:. Grigor`s ranking is allowing him to play in Chennai too (smart desicion to write down there) while Rikardas depends of some withdrawals to make it to the main draw in Brisbane. That will be great to see them taking this new step on ATP tournaments in 2011.

Michal is defending champion, michal was injured in last match vs berankis so means nothing, berankis served like pippo yesterday, berankis is too young and not ready to clinch helsinki, michal is experienced, so experienced.

michal hasnt lost a final this year, michal is god, michal is the 2nd comming, michal is the king of indoor challenger, michal is the best, i love you michal.

that bastard pole serves like ivo all week

Michal michal michal.

And a HUGE congratulations to Mr. Berankis for winning this title and getting into the top 90!!!!!!!!!! Yea!!!! So, so exciting, so so happy for him. After what he had to go through with his sickness and losing the Davis Cup, this is really the perfect way to end the season for him. He was focused, he was determined, he set a goal and he made it happen this week, so proud, and his professionalism is off the charts for someone so young. He's going to be a great one. Perfect result for the last big challenger of the season.

Lame accussations and if there was a moderator on this board he would have told you guys off.

Agree. And I think the same about Nishikori and hopefully 2011 is going to be better for him. Don`t bother about people blaming Michal. MTF is full of haters and sometimes most of them don`t know what some players are going through.

The Challenger section is a great place but I see there are a lot of people that only care about their bets and drop here their frustration when they lose. BTW, I didn`t hear of CooCooCachoo for quite a long time. Does anyone know if he is still part of the forum?

Please stop making things up. That's just childish. You don't like him, we understood that but some people believe your crap. Grigor is not even close to do things like that. And let me say that Grigor have very good relations with his coach. You are surely a 15 yo kid that wants some attention.

And now to back me up there was an article in Helsingin Sanomat, the biggest newspaper in Finland (paper version, sadly no online version, trying to get hold of a paper version and scan the article) about the incident between Dimitrov and the umpire. Apparently ATP might suspend Dimitrov from a few tournaments (no AO?).
