Re: Week 47: Helsinki, Finland [Entry List]
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.

Dont show that not Dimitrov but You are mug. He is good, i wrote today in the morning that it will be 1st El clasico of new times' tennis. And it was. They both had very low 1st serve percentage and it means that they both were very nervous all match. They both felt preassure, they both knew that it isnt only ordinary challenger semifinal cause it was special match. It was only 1st page, future will show big book i think
