Re: Davis Cup

So do you expect this to be a DC lineup next season? Or can they get Jarkko to play? Out of the 4 I don't like Sillanpää much, just don't think he has a lot of potential to improve. I liked H.Pöllänen more some years ago, not sure why he couldn't improve at all.

Yes he will, confirmed a few weeks back.

Re: Davis Cup

How could tennis.fi announce him then? It seems they found out pretty late about that rule.

Jarkko, Timo and Brunken have played as well, but why are they not on the team? Timo would have been good enough to win on Friday.
In case u still have no idea Brunken is missing since due rule change Brunken can't play for Finland apparently, as person must have lived in country he represents for 24 months or something.

I guess when it comes to Jarkko, he has decided to put his own interest first here, he is not so young anymore so I think it's understandable, I'm quite sure if they were still where they were last year Jarkko would play but as things are now, not.

As for Timo, maybe he is not in good form? Micke might well be better currently. Juho was good last time in davis cup so I guess they are now counting on him.

Apparently at least Harri and Juho will play Finnish league during weekend (per Harri's blog) so not like they go daviscup without having some touch to competetive tennis. Still I would question Henri and Harri being nothing more than doubles pair, best of 5 might still be too much for them. So this would leave Juho and Micke for singles.

You think he is a choice for Davis Cup? Would at least be a different kind of player, still with some potential.

Re: Davis Cup

Horrible loss for Harri. Hope he can bounce back. Should've won that fifth set, missed a sitter forehand at 4-2 30-15 when serving and only won 1 game after that. Forehand went into self-destruct mode.

Really hope the guys can beat Denmark, it'll be tough if we get relegated.

Re: Davis Cup

Finland lost 0-5 to the Netherlands in February. Jarrko and Harri were not able to play singles and Paukku and Timo Nieminen were predictably overmatched by the Dutch team.

Finland will now have to defend it's position in Group 2 later in the year. It would be nice for the entire team to be healthy for that ever important tie as they don't really have the depth to handle a major issue with one of their top players.

Re: Davis Cup
