yeah, that's true and most important: he has to put many more pics to the gallery, not only those 6 or so

Jarkko fought hard to win today against Starace, 3-6 7-5 6-3

There were some concern that he got injured during the first set, but that didn't seem to be the case fortunately. I guess he'll set the record straight in his next entry to his blog.

Blog entry #2,...
Quote:
I got through a tough three-setter tonight against Potito Starace, who his a very talented player. You're always happy to get through the first round at any tournament. The courts are really fast here and he was serving well. I had played him once before, have practiced with him and had seen his matches, so I knew his game well. Other times if you don't know a guy that well you will ask other players or coaches about his game. I always try to have a game plan worked out going into a match.


It was the last match of the night session so I knew it was going to be a long day. I practiced at 11.30 in the morning on center court with Kenneth Carlsen to get a feel for the court, which I had not hit on before. Then I did my normal stretching and I ate some pasta for lunch at the courts around 1.30.

It was then back to the hotel and I was planning to take a long nap but I started to listen to some music and I really got into the book I'm reading. I probably got through 70 or 80 pages before I told myself that I had to put the book away and get some sleep. I slept for about half an hour and then called the site around 5 o'clock to check on the progress of the matches. Because my match was a 'followed by'' and not a "not before'' you always need to play it safe in case someone twists an ankle early in a match.

Then I picked up my iPod and went for a walk outside for about 20 minutes. I just walked a few blocks to take in some of the local sites. At indoor tournaments you often spend your entire day indoors in the hotel and the site, so it's important to get some fresh air when you can. Then I headed to the courts and had some salad and pasta for dinner around 6 o'clock.

Because I play the winner of Youzhny and Zib - who don't play till Wednesday - my next match won't be till Thursday, so I'll have some time on my hands the next couple of days. I'll try to have a look at the city on Wednesday. Often you're in the best cities in the world and all you see is the hotel, the site and the airport, so when you get a chance to take in the culture and atmosphere of the world's great cities I like to do it.

Jarkko.

They all have quite boring blogs, no offence. But the most interesting blog from a sporting event that I've ever read was my own from Aachen . Unfortunately, available only in Polish so I won't post the link
Anyways good luck Jarkko and win the tournament if you hopefully can!

Yeah, they remind me of my elementary school essays...
Why don't they make the player blogs more interactive, so that fans could ask the bloggers some questions?

Anyway, a good win for Jarkko. I guess he needed to settle to the right style of play on the quick surface. Hope his serve works really well this week.

I see your point..... I'm thinking that maybe tennis players have boring lives afterall.......lol. The most exciting part would be the match itself, but everyone will be reading it, so he can't give too much away - ie how he thinks about the opponent... how he felt during the match, tactics etc..... so this is what's left!

I thought the blogs were realistic... but it will get a little monotonous (sp!?) after a while, and people will see that tennis is not as glamourous as it can seem. Well, until we get to a few particular players, no doubt. I think it's nice to get this insight into the players thoughts/lives on and off court. Plus (aimed at *~kat) we can find out the answers to some of our awkward questions, without having to ask

The following is a nonsensical piece of 'humour' intended as a joke, towards my friend Kat, whom I attended some tennis tournaments with in January 2006. It contains a couple of jokes that probably only she would understand, as we tried very hard not to embarass ourselves in front of any players - for a change. Please, do not take this post seriously, Jarkko did not write it, I am merely making a point of how fussy some tennis fans can be

*~kat...Can you imagine (I kind of can):

Quote:
Ever since Adelaide, when I heard those 2 East coast girls giggling at my safety vest, and hassling other tennis professionals about their poor choice of undergarments, I am forced to wear this large jacket, and long, dark pants.

God forbid they might find out I am actually committing 'the crime of uncoordination' and wearing dark undies under white shorts.

Cross your fingers for me!

I think the blogs have been pretty interesting. It depends what you expect them to say...What do you guys think could happen between the hotel and venue. It's interesting to know how they prepare to matches and stuff and what time they eat and what kind of food. It's useful to konow if you play yourself. I my opinion it was fun story what happened to friend of James Blake when he was at the beach

I was also going to mention that James' blog has been the most interesting (?) so far probably because his first language is English. While for Ivan & Jarkko, it's not. Which could be why they can sound the same everyday


Kristen......... maybe Mario can take him there....
