Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Ranking wise the situation is terrible, soon there will be no 2nd top 500 except Jarkko. Timo N. with 4 ranking points despite playing a full schedule... But I think talent wise it still looks fine. Jarkko, the Kontinens and Pöllänen should make a decent DC team for some years to come. Micke and Herkko indicated they could reach the challenger level soon. Timo and Paukku seem to be finished, while Heliövaara would probably be good enough to come back as a doubles player in some years if he wants to.

Pollanen seems promising. Nice 1HBH also

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Paukku since coming back in June:

32 L H2H vs COLELLA, Alessandro (ITA) 4-6 0-6
32 L H2H vs EBBINGHAUS, Yannick (NED) 1-6 3-6
32 L H2H vs OFNER, Patrick (AUT) 1-6 2-6
32 L H2H vs GRILLS, Jacob (AUS) 2-6 2-6

Those results are unreal bad. I guess there is no hope anymore?

So far in 2012 it's also been another half year of injured Kontinen's it seems. Henri hasn't tweeted since his latest withdrawal, I hope that isn't a bad sign. At least Micke is about to start his season now, won the Finnish championship last week.

Timo and Heliövaara are playing an average seasons and Sillanpää keeps playing a rather low futures level. Pöllänen's season isn't too good either, but I would expect him to score some ATP points in August in Finland.

So all in all it's a bit disappointing that there haven't been good news about any players so far this year.

Timo won 2 times vs Former Top 100 player Mischa Zverev. Quite impressive for Timo! Hope he continues to 2012 !!!
Herkko Pöllanen played a great match vs M.Elgin..pushing him to two hard sets!

Micke K. and Harri have bad draws.
Juho Paukku not there? Is he injured???

One of Timo's big weeks out of nowhere. His service games didn't go extremely well based on the stats, but he broke serve 7 times vs Milton, 6 times vs Struff and 5 times vs Torebko. Really unexplainable results, especially against Struff.
Timos serve is too bad..but if hes on fire...he plays so well!!!
hope he plays also in 2012?

Just too bad Herkko didn't have time to play futures tournament in Umag this week where he would had gotten WC because of that victory . I'm sure he would have been good there.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen and other Finnish players

Timo looked really bad today for most of it, served terribly and lost 2-6 6-2 1-6 to a mediocre A.Ward in the SF. He shook his head all the time because of his poor errors.

But this was a really good tournament for a Finn:
