Finnish TV broadcaster YLE will show all the matches via YLE Areena (works only with a Finnish IP): http://areena.yle.fi/tv/2025176
There's live streams at streamhunter.eu also.

Preview: Jarkko Nieminen had to withdraw from the event due to leg injury so Latvia became the favourite to win this tie. With Jarkko Nieminen Finland would have been favourite to win this 3-2 by victories over Latvia's number two player and in doubles. Finland's chance here is to do the same without Jarkko. It's difficult but not impossible, for Finland managed to win Bulgaria in first round without Jarkko in the team.

R1 M. LIBIETIS v M. KONTINEN 4-6 6-4 3-6 4-6
R2 E. GULBIS v H. POLLANEN 6-2 6-4 6-1
R3 E. GULBIS / M. LIBIETIS v H. KONTINEN / M. KONTINEN 6-2 7-6(2) 6-3
R4 E. GULBIS v J. PAUKKU 6-3 6-4 6-4
R5 M. PODZUS v H. POLLANEN 4-6 4-6

Gulbis-Pollanen 6-2 6-4 6-1. Pollanen's performance gives some hope though for the decisive 5th rubber on Sunday. Now Henri got to do his magic in doubles!

Looks like Micke couldn't hold his serve in the first set.

2-6

Gulbis is better than I expected somehow, thought he would be clowning around a bit more. Micke's serve also invites Ernie to go all in on the returns. :/
