Thumbs up Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

I was just wondering who else out there is a mad Jarkko fan? I only took notice of him in January 2003 when he trained with Enqvist. Jarkko has the most wonderful game, I saw him beat Kafelnikov in Melbourne and I was blown away! Anyone that's a fan, feel free to contact me

I *think* I just uploaded a photo of Jarkko. lol! Bye for now,

Kristen.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

I like the Shark he is a good player and especially since he came from Finland where there isn't a great tennis tradition.

Have you met him? You should, he is very down to earth and has time for everyone.

Actually Bjorkman I will be there in Melb next year, not long to go but long enough.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

I'm not a MAD Jarkko fan, but I quite like him.

I like all these Finnish/Swedish players.

Hey....I have that pic of Jarkko at my computer too, je je.

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

Im sooo sick of him playing David Nalbandian! 1-3 record... 1-2 record on hard court. hmm. Good luck to him!
As for other Finns... Lauri Kiiski df Timo Nieminen 7-6, 6-7, 6-4 in the futures event in Great Britain.

I'm adding one nice pic of jarkko, and another strange one. It's his reaction to a line call

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

OOps... I never answered your question...or did I?
I met him for about a minute...during a signing session...but I dont really include that as 'meeting' him. Had a brief convo, thanked him for not playing 5 sets against massu. He laughed, I laughed... and I never saw him again cause Safin kicked his ass a little

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

It was 4 sets against Massu BG, and he lost to Safin, he didn't get his arse kicked and now you will have to plan to catch him during the Australian summer next year.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yeah I know.

and he lost to Safin,
knew that too

he didn't get his arse kicked
I thought I saw a little ass kicking in it. All perhaps due to what people expect from Marat.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Jarkko beat Carraz and is now in the quarters.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

He will need to be playing well to beat the Schalken.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
