Can Benneteau finally win a singles title? Will Nieminen win his second title? Benneteau is 0-5 in finals, while Nieminen is 1-10 :lol:

Jarkko leads Julien in the h2h 4-0.

Very close. But both players must feel the pressure, since they must know that this is one of the last opportunities to improve their finals statistics. And this time it's not a top 20 player across the net.

Which match will be first, doubles' or singles' final? If doubles' final is first, I wonder how it affects to Jarkko's singles' final performance.

Edit: Men's final starts at 7:30pm just lake women's final, doesn't it? But estimated finish time is an hour earlier at 9:30pm and centre court matches start already at 4:30pm. So does that mean doubles' final is first?

These are the types of finals you get when the field's top seed is Del Potro.

Strange to have two finals mugs in a final. Could well be a 3 hour+ mugathon, but despite everything else, I am guessing Sharkko in tight 3.

I've now checked that, singles' final is first.

Anyway, both Nieminen and Benneteau have bad final records and Nieminen has seemed to play nervously in finals. But what have Benneteau's finals been like? Has he lost them becouse the other was just better or has he been nervous in finals?

Julien will likely win if Jarkko will continue serving as weak as today, just not getting enough "free" points to take title.

Unless he chokes badly when serving out the match, which is always a possibility, this should be Benneteau´s maiden title, me thinks
