Bad loss in semis to good player but still good result overall last week. Really important also, since he finally found a way to make it past 2nd round in challenger. Since 2010 he had unbelievable record of making it 9 times through 1st round but NOT ONCE had he made it to quaters even if he had only failed to make it through first round 4 times, so actually his first round record was quite impressive while 2nd round record complete joke... Now win over Lu first round so maybe chance for another good run :).

Top seed in a 15k Indonesian Hardcourt Future in Jakarta this week. In the first round he had a surprisingly difficult win over Vijayant Malik 6-0 5-7 7-5. Next up is N. Vijay Sundar Prashanth.

Harri took his 5th Futures title (3rd this year), beating Yoo in final 6-3, 1-0 ret. With this he has defended his points from rest of the season. So now he has 194 points this year which with he would likely end year around 250-260 in rankings :cool:. Next week another futures tournament in Indonesia, should have decent chance to get some more points from there. Might not be top seed this time though since Udomchoke might playing there.

Harri will start his season tomorrow in AO Qualies against Marti, I think he should have good chance there to take win in his first GS qualify match ever :). Harri had some injury problems with bottom of his foot, which is why his season didn't start as soon as it should have so hard to say whether he is in best form just yet. He has now trained in Australia 5 days though, so I guess he just might be ready to play anyways, at least he seems positive about his form in his blog.

Had to retire with an injury in Singapore. Shame, as he seems to like these Asian CHs.

Yeah, kinda sucks not often he is seed anyway... He wrote in his blog that he injured his neck already before match and couldn't serve normally and it just got worse when match went on so decided to call it a day. He also wrote he just might already play in doubles since neck already seems better.

harri won 5th rubber at DC, getting the win for finland over bulgaria!! amazing!!

Harri announced his retirement today. Still hasn't recovered from his injuries and sicknesses and felt that there is no point in continuing, at least for now. He'll focus on his studies and maybe try again once he's fully healed. Sad news but on the other hand he was never a world-class talent and he is studying in one of the most prestigious faculties in Finland, so he'll be more than alright.
