But Timo took care of it!
Timo's 2-6 6-2 6-0 6-1 win over Kallias takes Finland through to the 2nd round by 3-2!
At last Finland was able to win a tie even without Jarkko winning all three of his matches! I guess the last time it happened was back in 2002 when Finland beat Italy 4-1 and Jarkko didn't have to play at all on the final day (thanks to Tiilikainen who famously beat Sanguinetti in the opening match
Actually Finland has never before won a tie when Jarkko has lost a singles rubber. Timo is a true hero now!
Next it's going to be 2nd round against Latvia, and the tie will be played in Finland in July.
