Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Finland's tennis No.1 Jarkko Nieminen was knocked out of the French Open in the second round, but he chose not to sit on his hands for the second week of the event. Instead he signed up for an ATP Challenger series tournament in the Czech Republic - and he went on to win it.
Nieminen enjoyed a 6-1, 6-3 straight sets victory in Sunday's final over Czech Ivo Minar . Neither player was among those seeded for the tournament.
Nieminen collected USD 18,000 in prize money, rather less than he won for making it past Andre Agassi in the first round in Paris. He has now won seven Challenger events, but is still waiting for his first victory on the full ATP Tour, despite four appearances as a finalist.

Nieminen will not be taking part in the traditional pre-Wimbledon tournament on the grass of Queens' Club in London this week. He is returning instead to Finland.
There is a sound reason for his decision to skip the Wimbledon warm-up: Nieminen is to marry his fiancée Anu Weckström at the end of this week.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Wow, Jarkko made quite a big jump in the rankings the week before. I didn't notice that until just taking a look at the rankings that he was ranked 68 last week and 70 now.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

It was really an important jump in the rankings after he earned 140 points in only two weeks.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Tuomas Ketola qualified for Wimbledon doubles with his great partner F.Niemeyer.
And singles is tomorrow against Stakhovsky!

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Ok, it's Henman against Nieminen. Why oh why... Maybe Henman is so nervous that Jarkko can beat him.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Henman has never played like a champion the last couple of years in Wimbledon. I'm sure Jarkko has a chance! And if not, Popp is the man to beat Henman.
