clay wasn't a possibility in April, it might be too cold to play outdoors :p

Tali is our only DC-level indoor tennis arena and all the courts there are hard.

I have nothing to complain about, looks like a good nomination from Tiilikainen. :yeah:

Right now I would expect Timo Nieminen to be the only one who won't play at all.

Kontinen might be a better doubles partner for Jarkko than Paukku. :cool:

I'd give Kontinen a try in the singles also, maybe on Friday against Anderson. I doubt Paukku would have a better chance in that match...

Bad luck for Jarkko that he has to play matches 2-4, just like Kohlschreiber. No way Timo plays the doubles, but somehow the Finnish captains keep doing this. :eek:

Jarkko will play the doubles, it's probably a mistake with the first names.

good luck guys, I'm expecting a full house tomorrow :rocker:
