I usually don't think this about male players but Nieminen really makes tennis seem boring to me. I don't know what it is about his game but it's not enjoyable for me to watch.
Who could you be talking about? :lol:No - I like Nieminen....... and at least he desn't take hours adjusting his clothing between each service point :angel:
You must be drooling over his match-up with Rafa :lol:For me I think it depends who he's up against - he's such a solid, dependable sort of player with very little in the way of "big plays", that he's better to watch when you see him against someone different - a bit flashy, or big serving, etc. Pair him with another similar playing style to himself and it can become a bit samey.
Good call.Too bad he forgot to believe in himself when he lead Rafa a set and 4-1 in Barcelona.
This is the problem with him, he doesn't have the belief against the better players.
