A 23-year-old guy from Finland traveling the world playing tennis. Besides tennis, I love to grind MTTs and SnG's on FTP and PokerStars.

Last week was one of the best weeks of my life, practicing with guys like Jarkko Nieminen and other players from our team. There's a good atmosphere in the team and we are having a good time! Today (April 5) was the first day with matches, but unfortunately it didn't go so well...

We lost both singles were Jarkko lost in a tight 5set with the score of 86 in the last set, it was really disappointing when he had already a break in the fifth set.. Jarkko had in the start of the week little bit stomach problems were he was not practicing so much.. So he wasn't really 100% in the match, I think if jarkko would have been 100% he would have won that match.. :/ So tomorrow is doubles and its a must win to have a chance to win the tie! We have good doubles partner Jarkko and Henri kontinen (atp doubles 70 rank) and he is a good friend of mine and I can say he is really a top player even in singles and in doubles he is really amazing player.. So hopefully if everything goes good tomorrow we are still sunday playing for the win!

And with poker nothing new really, these weeks day have been so late that not even a chance to play some poker.. We were suppose to go wednesday to play in a casino some live poker but didn't have time to that either, maybe that could have give me some motivation.. who knows Smile

It must be great to have the chance to be practicing with Jarkko Nieminen, that guy already was the Top 13 of the world in tennis! About poker, you know how it is, it could help you relax and give you another motivation to the tennis field, but, if things went wrong too, it could turn into disaster and make you think you would have lost at tennis because you had spent too much time playing poker... and you don't want that to happen!

It's good that you are doing good with the tennis and your game, i'm sure you'll also play pretty good on the casino Smile

Keep us posted with your evolution on that casino live poker session that you'll have in the next days Big Smile

I would like to play tennis against anyone ,cause i love it,but have never played it. I would like to try very much . Maybe one day play a match with Rafa or Roger ,take a point or two. hahaha. Nieminen wasnt bad in his time but it would be a great experience
