Nieminen def. Beck 6-4 2-6 7-5 0-6 7-5 :worship: :worship: :worship:

Great comeback from Jarkko! He had lost 10 games in a row and was down 0-4 in the fifth! Beck also led 5-2 before Jarkko won the last 5 games. I'm so happy for Jarkko! :banana: :aparty:

In the second round Jarkko will play either Phau or Popp. He should beat either of them IMO.

Good job Jarkko :yeah:

And Beck - You're doing your best to push the title Zib currently holds for biggest choker on the tour, a couple more of these and you could snatch the title :p

Incredible and extreme up-and-down rollercoaster in the 4th and 5th set of this match. I could hardly believe it.

JARKKO always knows how to top his latest performances. In Stuttgart he did it twice, then in Sopot against Almagro and now he did it again and that was even better than against Varlet 2003, when he was 1-6 1-6 1-4 down and won. :woohoo:

Maybe Beck had cramps, at least Jarkko won almost every point at the end as he did against Agassi this year.

Many thanks to the man, who is now 8-3 in 5-setters, Jarkko "the legend" Nieminen!

I want to mention again that it was the third time within 6 weeks that Jarkko won a match, although his opponent was serving for the match + he won against Melzer from 2-4 down.

:worship:

Still no news about Beck, whether he had cramps or not? I mean Jarkko finished the match with 21-5 points or so when he was 2-5 down. :cool:

The shark bites again, too bad he has such a weak 2nd serve and his backhand could improve, he has a big chance to do well here.

Heia Nieminen.

I watched most of the match including the 5th set. No cramps from Beck except a giant braincramp. He just totally lost the ability to get the ball in the court. Great fighting spirit from Nieminen but Beck really lost this.
