Why is Eminem not playing?
Nieminen, of course.
So? Why isn't he playing?
He's having some disputes with the Finnish Tennis Federation... The tennis federation are being dicks, Jarkko started a new Tennis Academy in Finland, and gave all his prize money from playing the Helsinki Challenger to the Academy and probably invests a lot more in it and then the Federation decided that they didn't want to work together with Jarkko's Academy and started working together with some Swedes instead
. Jarkko was a bit annoyed and rightly so, he's done so much for Finnish tennis and then the Academy snubbed him for some stupid reason.
Anyways, great win for Micke
. The doubles might not be as straightforward as many think, if Henri Kontinen plays and is fit, he's a great doubles player.
