Europe/Africa Zone Group II 1st Round: Finland at Cyprus (April 6-8, 2007)

Matchu
02-03-2007, 11:25 PM
IMO the best Euro/Afr zone 2 tie, Cyprus has one world class player in Marcos Baghdatis, as does Finland in Jarkko Neimenen.

The winner of this tie plays either Latvia or Bulgaria. Good chance for one of these teams to advance to the Euro/Afr zone 1.

I want Cyprus to win but it will be a very close tie. Could even come down to the fifth rubber Marcos v.s Jarrko. Go Cyprus!

JMG

It's still 2 months away. ;)

After day it should be 1-1, but then we will get to see three 50/50 matches.

I'm afraid the fans in Cyprus are not easy to handle for the Finns.

Tie Information

National Tennis Centre, Nicosia, Cyprus
Stadium Capacity: 1500
06 April - 08 April 2007
Day 1: 1100 hrs (0800 hrs GMT) tbc
Day 2: 1100 hrs (0800 hrs GMT) tbc
Day 3: 1100 hrs (0800 hrs GMT) tbc
Surface: Clay (Red Clay) - Outdoors
Ball Type: Babolat VS

Interesting choice of surface from the Cypriots, clay is probably the best surface for the Finnish squad and certainly not the best surface for Marcos. Maybe he wanted to play on clay, because the clay season is about to start after this :shrug:

Finnish team should be Jarkko Nieminen, Timo Nieminen, Juho Paukku and Niklas Bucht or Lauri Kiiski

Timo Nieminen hammered Kallias on clay last year. :rocker2: Kallias started his season last week and was rather weak. So it doesn't look bad at all for Finland. :D On the other hand Timo lost two matches like that last year in Macedonia. :unsure: They better win the doubles.

I wouldn't be so certain. Latvians now have a pretty good player too and #2 for both Finland and Cyprus are weaker than our #2.

As for this match - I think Finland will move on 3-2 despite two singles wins by Baghdatis. Of course this applies only if Jarko plays.

it will be sad if either Finland or Bulgaria relegate to group 3. in 2005 Bulgaria have beaten Finland 3-2 in Finland. now on clay in Bulgaria i think that we have better chance.

It is decided by lot. The home-advantage chart is found here (http://www.daviscup.com/results/choiceofground.asp?type=EPAG2)
It was 6-1 the 4th. set?
Yup. 2-6 6-2 6-0 6-1. Good rebound by Timo to overcome a rough start and some rain delay.

Thank you, it was a very good tie. A pity, though, that the Big Match between Marcos and Jarkko was so one-sided.

Thanks for posting the scores, kindablue. And good luck against Bulgaria. :yeah:
