  • Hewitt and Youzhny in round 2 Stockholm action

    10/17/12 4:56 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Hewitt and Youzhny in round 2 Stockholm action Veterans Lleyton Hewitt and Mikhail Youzhny will be in action in Stockholm on Wednesday, as the field starts to look ahead to the quarterfinals.

    Lleyton Hewitt (WC) vs. Jarkko Nieminen (8)

    This is a favorable matchup for former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt. He owns a 4-0 record over Finland's Jarkko Nieminen, though they haven't met since way back in 2007, when Hewitt was ranked much higher.

    The Aussie had a great upset win over South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the first round. He'll have his chances on Wednesday at taking out a seed, but Nieminen advanced all the way to the semifinals in Bangkok a few weeks ago, so he is playing well at the moment.

    Prediction - Nieminen in 3.

    Mikhail Youzhny (6) vs. Patrik Rosenholm (WC)

    This could have been a much more difficult second-round match for Russian Mikhail Youzhny. Swedish wildcard Patrik Rosenholm took out the injury-laden Gael Monfils, who has been sidelined most of the 2012 season. The Frenchman has made an attempt to come back, but he hasn't been able to stay healthy for more than a week at a time.

    So instead of a former top 10 player, Youzhny will take on a Swede ranked 436th in the world. Rosenholm is ranked low enough that he is forced to qualify for Challenger events. He had a good run at Tampere Challenger, where he lost in the quarters, but he isn't likely to have enough fire power to hang with Youzhny -- even with the support of the home crowd behind him.

    Prediction - Youzhny in straight sets.
