Juho Paukku

Postby zikmat » Mon Aug 16, 2004 3:25 am

It looks like it's a junior, now 18 year old making the semi final of a Future in latvia at the beginnig of the month...
He has played Wimbledon Junior this year making 2nd round.
At least, he is a young player that may merit a WC in some occasion...

Paukku won his first round match against the Chilean Paul Capdeville (this guy must have french origins, no ?) at the Geneva Chalenger in 3 sets !
Finally, he may not be a bad choice as a Wild Card... ;)
Bon Tennis !

Good for Finland

he has reached the semis in Tampere as well defeating the second seed. It is not a surprise but I never heard about him before Tampere. Maybe Finland will have an opportunity to access the Davis Cup World Group with him and Nieminen...

Here in Finland has been quite much talk about Juho and his potential of becoming the next ATP level player of the country. So far things look good and I hope he makes it soon to the Davis Cup team and a better ranking. ;)

Juho

Yeah, Juho Paukku has a great game. Definitely convinced everyone at Tampere Challenger. He's a lefty with big groundstrokes. Huge loop in his big forehand, but great timing. Pretty solid doublehanded backhand with the ability to make points on that side too. Plays a much more straightforward game than Jarkko Nieminen for example. Physically weaker though. Prefers hardcourts, but seems to be doing all right on clay too!
