Default Jarkko on hard courts (outdoor/indoor)

Jarkko has a busy schedule planned for the last two months of the tennis season. The first two weeks Jarkko travels in Asia playing in Bangkok and Tokyo; two tournaments of which Jarkko has a good record from the past few years. Then it's back to Europe with Stockholm, Madrid, St. Petersburg and Paris on his schedule. All of these tourneys are played indoors, except Tokyo, which is on a outdoor hardcourt.

The draw for Bangkok is out, which was fairly kind to Jarkko:

5-NIEMINEN, Jarkko FIN vs MASSA, Edgardo ARG
DANCEVIC, Frank CAN vs Q
MELLO, Ricardo BRA vs WASKE, Alexander GER
WC-CILIC, Marin CRO vs 3-BLAKE, James USA

Jarkko probably has a Wednesday start here, because of the Davis Cup matches and long travel he's had to make to get there. QF would be the minimum goal for Jarkko, if he meets Blake there, it will be a good test of his current level of play.

Default Re: Jarkko in Bangkok this week ~ the indoor season starts now!

I suppose it would be a straight sets victory for Jarkko. Your favourite challenger reporter (myself, to remove doubts ) spent some time with Massa last week hmm and I need to admit he's in a good shape, his dropshots are on fire, lift is safe and he knows when to play a faster ball. But he isn't the world's greatest at the net, even if he gets the wrong impression on that point and appears there more frequently than he ever should. With Jarkko's passing shot things should go well. Anyway, he played on claycourts and had a exhausting travel from Poland (plane on Sunday) to Thailand. I don't know if he's going there for women or not but my match preview is a Jarkko's victory

I think I have already overslept it, regarding the fact I woke up at 10.30 I clearly didn't go to Wrocław that time either

Jarkko d Massa 6-7(6) 6-3 6-2

It was a good comeback from Jarkko and he was quite happy with his level of play today. Massa played great in the first set, but Jarkko was able to step it up in the second and third set. His play was getting better all the time and that's a good sign for tomorrow.

H2H 2-0 vs Dancevic

Court 1
12:00 NOON
Jarkko NIEMINEN (FIN) vs Frank DANCEVIC (CAN)
followed by
Sanchai RATIWATANA (THA)/Sonchat RATIWATANA (THA) vs Eric BUTORAC (USA)/Travis PARROTT (USA)

He should beat Dancevic, I'll set my alarm clock at appropriate hour and I shall show up at livescoring room, happy that Mistaflava (vide: Dancevic) is banned

Gah, Jarkko's semi-dismal form continues as he struggles past Dancevic 2-6 7-6 6-4. The positive thing is that these days his basic level is high and he has enough guts to get past a mediocre opponent. Besides, the match didn't last long so he should have some fire left in him to face Blake next. I would be most surprised if he actually wins, though.

Sadly I need to agree with Seneca. It was painful to follow that match on the scoreboard...
