Jarkko in Down Under!

I decided to make a new thread for 2007 opening. Hope you don't mind. Jarkko is first-seeded in Adelaide where he will start his journey of 2007. There's this new round robin system. We'll see how that will suit to Jarkko.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

I hate yo bring you the bad news but Jarkko is suffering from stomach flu and can't play in Adelaide. According to the papers here it started last night and I guess he can't have travelled today as planned. He seems to be prone to stomach problems. Let's hope it is nothing more serious. He'll start the season in Auckland.

A very difficult start for the season in singles, Ollie Rochus got some match practise already in Doha and was in pretty good form reaching the QF there. Jarkko has to be very sharp from the beginning, remember their match here last year? ;)

Very tough opener here. :( Another thrilling match between Jarkko and Oli wouldn't be much of a surprise. :cool: Do your best defending the title here Jarkko! :yeah:

a bit expected, but still disappointing

Labamba

Jarkko didn't play well at all, but that was to be expected under the circumstances. :awww: He has a doubles match today, much needed match practise and training for AO...

Jarkko had poor break points statistic: 2/11 !!!
and
in the second set after 2 Jarkko's service games his first service % was 13%.

This way is hard to win any top player like Ollie!

No real surprise here. Ollie's such a tough opponent to face in your first match of the season. :(

At least Jarkko gets a lot of practice in before the AO now and can go there without pressure. Let's hope Jarkko repeats the feat from US Open 2005, when he came into the tournament having played only 1 match on hard courts (losing to Jenkins in New Haven) but went all the way to QF in The Big Apple...

Labamba
01-09-2007, 08:57 PM
hopefully the doubles match gets played today, damn the rain in Auckland :fiery:

Jarkko can't train there and he can't leave for Melbourne when he's still in the draw :(

Jarkko's AO draw: http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/scores/draws/ms/r1s4.html

1st round - Paul Goldstein
2nd round - Chela or Starace
3rd round - Murray (or Verdasco/Mathieu/Martin)
4th round - Nadal (most likely)

not easy, but could be worse :rocker2:

The draw isn't easy at all, but really like Labamba said, could be worse. Let's hope Jarkko has trained well this week and will be in good form when the Aussie Open starts. Then the draw could be seen as promising one...

Jarkko needs some good results here after the first two difficult weeks of the season. Not the easiest draw, but if he can play his best, I believe he has a great chance to get some really good results here. :yeah: Good luck Jarkko! :bigclap:

Jarkko will play doubles at the AO with Thomas Johansson. They face the #7 seeds Erlich/Ram in the first round.

This match is not on the schedule for tomorrow, so Jarkko will have a day off to rest for the match against Chela on Thursday. :)

Jarkko :sobbing:

lack of match practise was still very easy to spot in Jarkko's game :( he also rolled his ankle in the end, which looked fairly bad at the time but he's playing the doubles match at the moment, so I guess he's ok...

had several bp's at 5-5, but couldn't take them

atleast Jarkko is healthy, that's the most important thing :angel: now it's time to work really hard for the indoor season in Europe (Zagreb, Marseille, Rotterdam)
