We also have the other Finnish players thread, but I guess it's okay to give him an own thread.

His comeback this weekend in Croatia:

w7 Croatia F2
w8 Wolfsburg Challenger
w9 Denmark vs Finland
w10 Great Britain F3
w11 Great Britain F4

I hope, this thread will be one of the most popular))
Anyway, Good luck for Henry...This season will show his really ability.
I saw only his Wimbledon's final. The game was quite equal, but Dimitrov already is about 500. This fact gives me hope for bright future.

P.S. It will be great to see finnish doubles (Kontinen - Nieminen) in Tour. Do you know any similar examples at high level?

Yes, I started this thread because he was a very good jr player and also because I believe he canm bring Finland to better DC appearances.
He losty on third round qualies on Futures Croatia, but he can improve after the injury.

That's a shame. Not a great time for it to happen to him either.
