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.
