Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Jarkko stayed at only two first round losses this year, next opponent is Andreev - maybe another 5-setter. Jarkko also improved his 5-setter record to 7-2 (3-0 in RG).

It was a big win for me and I totally understand that Jarkko was happy although Agassi was injured - unlike some user in general messages.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

TOTALLY agree!
He's gotta enjoy his win. If Agassi was so badly hurt, why did he continue.

2 screen caps of Jarkkos interview (LOL!) and a pic from gotennis.com.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

He didn't retire because he couldn't bring himself to retire. I felt great respect for him.

Jarkko did brilliantly today. We need more finnish players!!!!!!!

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

I just noticed that the "big three" are not in Jarkko's quarter so that there are many player with a chance for the semifinal, including Jarkko - but probably Canas is the man to do it.

I'm sure Andreev will be a 50/50 match for the bookies, but I'm sure Jarkko has a good chance there - he will win in 4 tight sets.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

A bad loss today for Jarkko 2-6 4-6 7-6(3) 2-6 against Andreev The only positive thing was that he came back from 2-6 4-6 1-3 to win the third. He was never break up in the whole match and made less winners and more unforced errors than Andreev.
He made some comments that he is angry because he knows that he could have played better today and that he made too many unforced errors.
Jarkko also took an injury timeout at 2-6 4-5* (sore throat)

I hope he will play next week in Prostejov, he’s still on the list.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Poor jarkko. I think he is a better player than Andreev.

Hopefully he can get his ranking up because he deserves to be higher than he is.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Lassi Ketola got a great win on Sunday. He defeated no.256 Uros Vico in the 2nd Quali round in Sassuolo 6-3 7-5. Maybe Vico was injured the weeks before, but at least he nearly defeated Jarkko last year.
