Starace shouldn't be a problem for him.

Jarkko is the next "blogger" on atptennis.com!!!

I'm happy to be here in Zagreb for the first PBZ Zagreb Indoors. I arrived Saturday and although there must be a lot of potential problems involved with staging a new event, things seems well organized.

After the Australian Open I spent just one day in Finland before moving on to Copenhagen, where I practiced with Kenneth Carlsen, who is also here with me in Zagreb. Why go to Copenhagen to practice? That's where my wife Anu, who is Finland's No. 1 badminton player, practices. I had played a lot of tennis in January, reaching the quarters in Adelaide, winning Auckland and reaching the third round of the Australian Open. So I needed a couple of days rest before picking up the racquets again.

There was a big reaction in Finland to my title in Auckland. I was the first Finn to win an ATP title. They showed the final live on TV in the middle of the night. But my wife didn't get to see the match because she was in Copenhagen at the time. The first she knew of it was when I woke her up in the middle of the night with a phone call.

Today I woke at 8.30 and after breakfast I watched the last two and a half sets of the Australian Open final between Federer and Baghdatis. Then I went to the hotel gym to do some rubber band training and stretching. Then it was back to the room to listen to some music and to read a little. I'm reading a Finnish book about a murder and big investigation in Finland that spreads south.

I had my first practice today with Carlsen and soon I'll practice again with Mario Ancic. As you can imagine he's very big in Zagreb this week after being part of Croatia's winning Davis Cup team. There's lots of posters of him in the city.

I play last match on Monday night against Potito Starace. If it's a real late finish my next post may be Tuesday morning.

Jarkko.

That's so sweet, hanging out with her
I guess this might be a good opportunity to post this (dodgy) photo of Jarkko, in Adelaide... training (well...'was') with Ancic.

There are more to come... but I need to scan them

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

lol Kat... yeah, it's a nice photo!

But I have to wonder... I know 'husband' is wearing sunglasses... nd Jarkko is squinting. However, Mario is coping fine with the sun... maybe Jarkko just needs darker eyebrows? Can you imagine? He'd look like Chris Haggard. Brunette eyebrows, bright blonde hair super-daggy.

I have to say, Jarkko's arm looks amazing in my pic of him
