Nieminen advances

Obrazek

Last year’s PTT Thailand Open runner-up Jarkko Nieminen battled to a 6-1, 4-6, 7-5 first-round victory over Austrian wild card Dominic Thiem on Tuesday in Bangkok. The Finn lost serve three times, but converted five of his seven break points in response to claim victory in just under two hours.

Former World No. 13 Nieminen has a strong record in Bangkok, reaching the final last year (l. to Garcia-Lopez) and the semi-finals in 2003 (l. to Dent) and 2005 (l. to Federer). Reflecting on his tough opener, the 30 year old admitted, “It was difficult because I was lying in bed ill most of the past three days. I’m feeling better and better all the time and I felt in many stages I was playing well. This young guy is very talented. I don’t want to take anything from him, he played a great match.”

Ten years later, Nieminen in another Stockholm final

Obrazek

Jarkko Nieminen is through to his third Stockholm title match after surviving James Blake in three sets on Saturday. Nieminen awaits either Gael Monfils or Milos Raonic.

Jarkko Nieminen booked a spot in his third career If Stockholm Open final--10 years after his first appearance--by defeating James Blake 7-6(5), 5-7, 6-2 on Saturday afternoon. Nieminen, a runner-up in 2001 and 2006, converted five of 14 break points and benefited from seven Blake double-faults to advance.

After exchanging one break of serve each during the first set, Nieminen took control by pulling through the ensuing tiebreaker seven points to five. The 30-year-old Finn seemed to be on course to run away with the match when he broke for a quick lead in the second.

Blake, though, was not about to go down without a fight. The 69th-ranked American broke right back then survived multiple break points at 5-5. He seized a 0-40 lead on Nieminen's serve at 5-6 and converted his third chance to force a final set.

Nieminen also gave back an immediate break to begin the third, but he soon stormed ahead by pummeling Blake's second serves. The world No. 73 won five of the last six games and held at 5-2 to clinch victory.

Next up for Nieminen--who is 1-9 lifetime in ATP finals--is either No. 1 seed Gael Monfils or sixth-seeded Milos Raonic.

Finał w Sztokholmie 2011:

Słynne przysłowie: “Do trzech razy sztuka” nie sprawdziło się tym razem– Jarkko przegrał swój trzeci finał w stolicy Szwecji. Poza tym to był jego 11 finał na szczeblu ATP w karierze (1-10) i pierwszy taki mecz w tym sezonie (0-1). Nieminen rozegrał tu bardzo dobry turniej, szkoda, że zwycięzca jest tylko jeden, ale taki jest niestety sport. Brawo Jarkko, powodzenia w następnych występach :) .

Nieminen Wins Sydney Title To End Drought

Obrazek

Jarkko Nieminen ended a six-year title drought on Sunday, defeating Julien Benneteau 6-2, 7-5 in an all 30-over final at the Apia International Sydney to win his second career trophy. "I tried to focus and win every point I could. I think I managed to do that pretty well," said Nieminen.

"I don't have a good record in finals, but I don't think I've done anything wrong in the ones I've played. Today I felt I had a really good chance to take the title as I had the game to do it. It's been many years since that first title and I had many finals after that, but I'm pretty good at believing in myself."

After Benneteau broke the Finn in the first game, the match belonged to Nieminen. He converted four breaks of serve, and won 74 per cent of his first serve points to improve his undefeated record against the Frenchman to a 5-0 mark. "I had one of the best off-seasons," revealed Nieminen. "I stayed healthy and felt I was playing really good the whole of December, and practising hard. Maybe I'm more relaxed and experienced now, and don't have anything to prove with myself."

Nieminen is the first qualifier to win an ATP World Tour title since Sergiy Stakhovsky lifted the St. Petersburg crown in 2009. Nieminen’s previous triumph came at the Heineken Open in 2006, and this week’s ATP World Tour 250 event in Sydney was the 147th tournament he competed in since winning his first title in Auckland. He is now 2-10 in title matches.

Benneteau was bidding to win his first title, and fell to a 0-6 final record with the loss. He was aiming to become the first player over 30 to capture his first ATP World Tour title in nearly seven years, since Australian Wayne Arthurs, 33, won at Scottsdale in 2005. "It was a good week, but not the finish I wanted, as I hoped today I would win," Benneteau said. "Jarkko played very well, but I could have done better. It's a good start to the year. My goal is to win a tournament and to be a better player."

The two were contesting the first all 30-over final since 2007, when 30-year-old Carlos Moya topped 33-year-old Andrei Pavel to win the Umag trophy.

Nieminen later finished runner-up with Matthew Ebden in the doubles final to World No. 1 pairing Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan. The American twins won 6-1, 6-4.

Jarkko Nieminen Q&A: A Winner At Tennis... But Badminton?

Obrazek

Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen is the third seed on his debut at the Serbia Open 2012 this week and is set to play Croatian qualifier Antonio Veic in his opening match on Thursday in Belgrade.

As part of ATPWorldTour.com’s new Q&A series, Nieminen gives his impressions of Belgrade, remembers his military service days and laments his badminton defeats to wife, Anu.

You’re playing in Belgrade for the first time this week. How have you found the city and the tournament?
I have been mostly on the tennis site because I’ve been trying to prepare for the tournament as well as possible. But I have driven through the city and I had a couple of dinners there. From what I have seen, it’s a very nice city. I heard good things from the tournament, so I wanted to come here. Also, you don’t get to new countries too often nowadays. I have been to so many countries, so it’s a nice experience to come to a country where you haven’t been before. So far, no complaints. I really like it and the weather has been very nice.

How is it for you playing in these hot conditions, coming from Scandinavia?
I don’t mind. For me it takes a few days to get used to it, but now I came from Barcelona and we had some hot days there. I really like playing in hot conditions. I don’t like it if it’s really humid, but if it’s hot and dry like many times in Australia, I really like it. So I just have to prepare well and come early to the tournament.

We’re still in the early stages of the European clay-court swing. What challenges do you face when adapting your game from hard court to clay
?
The older you get, somehow I feel it’s easier to change the surfaces. I played some good matches already in the first two weeks, so at least I have got some wins under my belt and I’m feeling pretty good. Hopefully I can keep it up. Also it’s nice to play the whole of the European summer here in Europe. It makes it easier after travelling a lot; first month in Australia then one month in the States. It’s nice to be in Europe and I get to go home for a couple of days between the tournaments some times and it makes it much easier, shorter flights and so on.

Both of your ATP World Tour titles have come at the start of the year, including at this season’s APIA International Sydney, where you ended a six-year title drought. What helps you to be so fast out the blocks?

Usually I start pretty well and I really like playing in Australia and New Zealand. I got my first title in Auckland and played the finals in Sydney and Adelaide. I think one of the reasons is that I rest enough and then I practise really well in the off-season. I know what are the best things for me; what I have to practise and what kind of things I have to do.

At the end of last year I had one of the best off-seasons maybe ever. I stayed healthy all the time, which I didn’t do the year before. I could do all the practices as planned and I really played with a good quality all the time. So I had a pretty good feeling that I could make some good results in the near future. Obviously I didn’t guess that I would win the title in the second week of the year, but it’s obviously a very nice start.

You completed a total of three months military service in 2008 and 2009. Do you have lasting memories from that experience? Did it help you with any aspects of your tennis game?
In Finland everybody has to do it, either six or 11 months. I did the six-month period, but in the end I was there about three months, not in a row. I went there after the Basel tournament and I was there the whole off-season basically. I actually enjoyed the whole time there. It was a kind of mental holiday for me. You just follow the orders. You can leave your brains somewhere else and just do what you are told to do. I really enjoyed that because otherwise you’re travelling a lot and you have to create your own schedule. I felt really good and I played some of my best tennis during that time. We had a good group of people and a nice atmosphere. I tried to do all the things as well as I could and it was a very nice experience.

Did any other athletes do the military service with you?
It was the place where athletes go, one hour from Helsinki by car. The athletes go there so it’s easier to practise all sports there. I always wanted to do it. Usually you do it when you are 18, 19, but after I finished my school I wanted to see how I do at tennis and I’m still on that way, in my 12th year now. It took about eight years before I decided to do it.

When you and your wife, Anu, spoke to DEUCE Magazine in 2008, she declared you could not win a point against her on the badminton court; is that still the case?
Yeah... I haven’t improved since then and I think she has. So it’s no different. We don’t even try to play points.

How often do you play with her?
Not too often. I would like to play more badminton, but unfortunately I don’t have time to do that. A couple of times we played and she can give some tips, the same as if we were playing tennis and I would try to teach her how to play.

You went to watch El Clasico (between Barcelona and Real Madrid) in Barcelona last week. How did you enjoy that experience and who were you supporting?
I’m not a huge fan of any team. But I really enjoy good soccer and it was a great experience to be there in this Barcelona-Madrid game. I was in the middle of the Barcelona fans and I just hoped it would be a good game. I didn’t really go for either of them.

Nieminen To Open Tennis Academy In Finland

Cytuj:
Jarkko Nieminen will open the first high performance tennis academy in Finland this summer, fulfilling a dream to create viable opportunities for future tennis generations in his country to succeed at the international level.

The Jarkko Nieminen Tennis Academy (JNTA) aims to serve as a platform for talented players looking to pursue a professional tennis career. Nieminen, who captured his second ATP World Tour title at the Apia International Sydney (d. Benneteau) this year, will act as a mentor for the players and coaches while he continues his career on the ATP World Tour, but will expand his involvement in the coming years.

The 30-year-old Finn has appointed his trainer Jarmo Ahonen to oversee the physical programs at the academy. Among others brought on board include Director Federico Ricci, past Director of the Evert Tennis Academy in Florida, and former World No. 48 Veli Paloheimo, who will utilise his professional tennis experience to assist with player development.

JNTA will make use of its connections around the world to create a positive, yet competitive environment for the players both at the academy and when travelling abroad. A few foreign players will also be joining JNTA soon. Nieminen wants to thank all the sponsors and partners that have agreed to support this project for the benefits of upcoming players from Finland and Northern Europe.

Jarkko Nieminen: Advantage Left-Hander

Obrazek
Jarkko Nieminen believes left-handers should practise together as much as possible.

Since turning pro in 2000, Jarkko Nieminen has established himself as one of the most consistent players on the ATP World Tour. The Finn will finish the 2012 season ranked inside the Top 100 of the South African Airways ATP Rankings for the 12th consecutive year.

Though he’s 31, Nieminen has showed no signs of slowing down. As a qualifier at the Apia International Sydney, he captured his second trophy, ending a six-year title drought. He has won 26 tour-level matches this season.

As part of Compeed’s Form & Fitness series, Nieminen discusses being one of the premier left-handers in the sport, overcoming a wrist injury and more…


Compeed

As one of 11 left-handers currently in the Top 100, what shots in your game do you work on to give yourself a competitive advantage?
There are not too many left-handers in the Top 100. I think that is my biggest advantage. If players aren’t used to playing left-handers, the spins might feel strange at the beginning of the match. So when I’m at home and on the tour, I try to practise with the left-handers. I practise a lot on the wide serve to the advantage side. Otherwise, I practise similarly to the right-handers.

Most of your opponents are right-handed and thus, are more likely to hit their forehand cross-court to your backhand. How much emphasis do you put in working on lateral movement and do you train running around to the forehand to mix up your shot-making?
I always practise footwork and movement on the court. The backhand has been the most natural shot for me since I was a kid, so it’s not a problem when a right-handed player hits a heavy forehand to my backhand. I think during these years, I have worked on running around to the forehand, because it’s so convenient for me to hit the backhand. This gives me more variation with my game, especially on the slower surfaces, when I have more time. This is one of the shots of mine that has improved a lot throughout my career.

In 2009, you overcame a right wrist injury. What exercises do you use to isolate your right wrist to build and maintain its power?
This was only my second serious injury. The first was in 2004 and that was also my right wrist. This is the wrist that helps with my two-handed backhand. I did a lot of rehab, trying to make it stronger. I think it’s pretty close to where it was before the injury. Maybe I’m lacking some of the final percentage there. That’s why I tape my wrist every time before I play a match. But I have no pain, I can hit normal backhands and I’ve worked to strengthen the right arm.

At the end of the year, you will finish inside the Top 100 for the 12th straight season. What do you attribute to your ability to stay competitive for so long?
This feels very good. I’ve put a lot of effort to do my routines and fitness on and off the court every day. You also need some luck to have this kind of statistic. I don’t think many players have finished inside the Top 100 for this many years in a row. I think the older I have got, the more time I have put towards the fitness side. I’ve tried to practise the same amount and get enough treatment.

You have worked with your fitness coach, Jarmo Ahonen, for a while. What are some important lessons you’ve taken away from your time with him?
He has helped me a lot since 2004. My fitness has always been pretty good but he has helped by showing me new exercises. My stomach and back were not in the right balance when I started with him. That area is really important to a tennis player. We paid a lot of attention to get the mid-body strength better. I felt a difference when I started doing those exercises. It’s helped me with moving to the corners and recovering quickly. I have better balance and endurance, so I can hit more relaxed strokes. Since I was lacking some strength in the stomach and back, I do many routines on a daily basis to keep that area strong.

Your wife was also a professional athlete. Did you ever workout or train together when you were in the same location?
She had a very long, successful badminton career. She stopped playing after the London 2012 Olympics. We worked out together when we were in the same place. Mostly, we were in the gym at the same time. Sometimes, we did the same exercises, and other times, different ones. It was nice to spend time together with both of us travelling a lot and not seeing each other every day.

What is an exercise, stretch or drill you’d recommend a left-handed recreational player add into their training program?
I don’t think there’s a special exercise for a left-handed player. I think they have to keep up in practising the same things as the right-handed players, but should remember to hit with other left-handers. It makes it fun, gives more variation and helps them learn to play against different spins.

Which player on tour do you think…
Has the best footwork? Novak Djokovic
Has the greatest muscular endurance? Rafael Nadal
Is the quickest? Bjorn Phau
Is the most flexible? Novak Djokovic
Has the best balance? Roger Federer
