lol, that's really funny.. Nieminen is ranked 70 and is 31 years old.
Mayer is also an old guy who isn't obviously a top player.
Matosevic is...?? Bands...??
and are you saying not getting broken by these guys is something worth talking about here when he's facing the Great Federer??
70 straight holds isn't impressive when he was playing just easy low-ranked players, so it should definitely not be discussed when we're arguing whether he'll beat federer or not. Just pointless facts..
