Jarkko's #1! :) Go dahling, live up to your seeding!!

Also best of luck to Mario Ancic & Michel Kratochvil :kiss:

from the official website:

22-02-03
Carlsen to meet Kratochvil
Pless against Mamiit in the first round

No. 5 seed, Kenneth Carlsen, ranked 60, was not overjoyed after Saturday’s draw for the Copenhagen Open tournament which put him up against Swiss Michel Kratochvil (82) in the first round.

“He plays very stable from the baseline. He can also serv and volley and doesn’t have any particular weaknesses. He was not the one I would have preferred to meet in the first round, but that’s the conditions,” said Dane Kenneth Carlsen, who admits his form has been better.

“But then again, that’s also how I felt before I played Tokyo (a tournament he eventually won last year),” said Carlsen.

Kristian Pless (96) was more pleased with his first round opponent, American Cecil Mamiit (116).

“That was a good draw for me. He’s fast, but his serv isn’t intimidating, which should give me the chance to play my game from the baseline,” said Pless, who has never met Mamiit but practiced with him shortly before the draw on Saturday.

Pless had to withdraw from the tournament in San Jose in California due to a wrist injury, but for the past two days the Dane has been able to practice without pain.

Top seed Jarkko Nieminen of Finland plays Olivier Rochus is in his first round match, while seed No. 2, Australian Wayne Arthurs, plays Olivier Mutis from France. Last year’s winner, German Lars Burgsmüller, meets Austrian Jürgen Melzer in the first round.

Norman and Carlsen, eh? Nice plan Magnus! When you can't beat 'em, join 'em... Maybe good old Kenneth will teach you a thing or two about winning tiebreaks.

Hackie - it appears that your two loves are going to face off in doubles ;)

Indeed, they are, and neither of their teams are very strong so it will be an interesting match. Better than in singles, at least . . .

I think Michel & Jarkko should team up for doubles. They'd make an interesting pair.
