Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

pffff that was tight today!

3-6 6-1 6-4 against Mertinak - FIRST semifinal of the year - maybe his favourite top10 opponent Nalbandian is next - come on Jarkko

Let's hope for a final against Pavel

And of course no Wimbledon qualifying for him to play

EDIT: He's also in the doubles semis now A busy week for Jarkko!

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players



WHY?


Waske/Mayer d. Nieminen/Shaky (11)6-7 7-6(5) 7-5

wasting break points at 5-6

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

(23)Jarkko Nieminen 27 – 103
(30)Ville Liukko 117 – unr
(30)Tuomas Ketola 130 - 221
(29)Kim Tiilikainen 207 - unr
(29)Tapio Nurminen 212 - unr
(23)Timo Nieminen 254 - 528
(29)Tommi Lenho 291 - 1022
(27)Janne Ojala 295 - 673
(24)Lauri Kiiski 427 -630

Some finnish players with their best ranking and current ranking: They all are still not older than 30, but nobody could keep his level. Only Ketola managed to play challenger for many years and Jarkko will come back in the top50 soon. I see only a chance for T.Nieminen and Paukku to make the top 300 again.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Whoa! Look how tanned Jarkko looks compared to the others. Good to see he's still squinting. It must have been nice and overcast, considering there's no sun/shadows

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

To JMG and others

Juho Paukku (18y) is the only new finnish male player to make the top 300 during next years. Young Harri Heliövaara will maybe have some chances, but he will be only 16 years next month - so it's too early to say.

Yes that's true and even Paukku is 0-5 in main draws this year. But I hope that Timo Nieminen will come back. I read that he's doing military service at the moment til July, but hopes to play the two great finnish futures in June.
And do you know anything about Janne Holmia, who is/was in a US-College
and won a set against Dellatore in Tampere last year. Maybe he can make at least the top 500?
