Re: S3: Week 8 - Brasil Open, Costa do Sauípe (M) | F posted!
Jarkko won another title, this time in Brazil!
Finnish player Jarkko Nieminen is playing the best tennis of his carrer at moment. After winning Sydney, Rotterdam and Dubai earlier this season, left handed Finn won also tournament in Costa do Sauipe. Second seed defeated Juan Carlos Ferrero, Stanislas Wawrinka, Juan Monaco and Nikolay Davydenko to reach a final where he defeated Andy Murray from United Kingdom in straight sets, 7-5, 6-3.
Nieminen didn't look so confident in second round, quarterfinal and semifinal when he needed 3 tight sets to win. But the most important thing is that he is winning. Nieminen last loss was on Australian Open where he lost in semifinal against Roger Federer. Jarkko is now on 15 matches winning streak and question is – who can stop him in Indian Wells next week? »I'm really playing so confident lately. Also if I don't play my best tennis, I'm fighting till end and yeah, match isn't over till last point is played. Of course I want another title next week.« said Finn, which is totally dominating mens tour at start of season. He won 4 of 6 tournaments played this year so far.
