    About Stockholm

    Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, encompasses 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on an extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. The cobblestone streets and ochre-colored buildings of Gamla Stan (the old town) are home to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize. Ferries and sightseeing boats shuttle passengers between the islands.

    Barely 18, local boy Mikael Ymer kicked Verdasco's butt: 2 and 1, making good on his wild card. Another youngster to watch.

    And he did really well. He apparently played only 2 ATP matches before this one, so it is mightily impressive. His older and better ranked brother lost, though. We should keep an eye on them. I think they have a 3rd Ymer in the family, who also plays tennis.

    Delpo seems to be managing his schedule pretty well - not overplaying.

    Yep, it seems that Delpo has learned his lessons.

    And the youngster went to 3 sets with Dr Ivo. Great job.

    this Stockholm if tourney was bjorn borg's tour debut on nov 1st 1971 aged 15y 5m. (I know I have mentioned it before but..hey ho)

    he only won it once though, in 1980, beating McEnroe in straights on a lightning fast deck where one stoke rallies were almost impossible.

    Great semi final matches here. Dimitrov looks in good form and Delpo is always dangerous, if healthy. Could go either way, the same with Sock and Sasha.
