I only wish I could be doing that...

My little problem is that I will be away all weekend on a cruise ship (going Sweden-Finland-Sweden) for a conference (tennis-related actually!) so I doubt I'll be able to see anything (or even follow it on the Internet).

Hmm.. Perhaps I should bring my laptop and then connect to the internet via the cell phone (which actually has pretty good coverage on that cruise ship).

Anyone interested in some tennis in Helsinki on Sunday around lunch? (Ie, should I bring some gear? :-)

I don't think Sweden is as hopeless as people might think. I watched this Soderling kid in Cinci a couple of years back and he's very talented I think. He has an all court game, solid serve, nice ground strokes. And Johansson we all know is capable of beating anyone. Sweden's doubles team I think is better as well. Argentina might go into the last day trailing 2-1 and anything can happen. Don't understimate wilander and his guys. he knows his way around the dirt.

What could possibly go wrong?
 


Would you like to share this construction with 10000 other spectators?
I'm not sure I would like to have a seat at the top of that....

Some more pictures of the Swedish team can be found at:

Just for the record - I didn't take that picture (Tony Wihren did).

You are right. I'd much rather be rooting for Argentina from the safety of my home. :p

I predict 4:1 win for ARG. Or do you think there could be any surprises?

Söderling takes the first set against Nalbandian 6-3, loses second 2-6 and is up a break in the third set... Not looking too bad I think :-)

ACE of Hearts 02-10-2006 07:42 AM

Nalbandian is in control now, up 2 sets to 1, and its 3-1 in the 4th set and he is serving.

mislav 02-10-2006 07:49 AM

Go Nalbandian!

Don't cry for me, uhm... Sweden? ;)

ACE of Hearts 02-10-2006 07:55 AM

Nalbandian wins 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 over Soderling.Great win by Nalby.

Andres 02-10-2006 08:28 AM

Just as I predicted, 6-1 in the fourth... but I didn't expect to lose the 1st one ;)

Go ARG!!

ACE of Hearts 02-10-2006 09:48 AM

Thomas Johansson is getting his butt kicked by Acasuso, he feeds him two breadsticks in the first 2 sets, 6-1, 6-1

Andres 02-10-2006 10:34 AM

Acasuso crushed Johansson :)
6-1 6-1 6-3 ...

ARG 2-0, so far :D

croatian sensation 02-10-2006 11:09 AM

Goood job..so our QF is getting nearer :-)

Andres 02-10-2006 11:17 AM

You have no chance, dear, you have no chance :D :D :D

Pah! Pure luck - that's all! Pure luck!

You just wait...

Andres 02-10-2006 12:12 PM

I'll wait.... for the Bagel ;)

Hmpf.... It's just because I didn't have time to watch the matches (had to go pick up one of my kids), and now that I have to go away for the rest of the weekend. Ah well. I have perfect faith in our heroes. They'll win the rest of the matches - even if Mats Wilander himself will have to take the court and play *both* the last two singles!

Hmm.. A bagel you say... If you ever come to Sweden I'll be happy to serve you one! Just let me know! :-)
