About

Jarkko Kalervo Nieminen is a Finnish professional tennis player and, as of June 2014, he is the highest ranked Finnish tennis player.

His highest ranking is World No. 13, achieved in July 2006. He has won two ATP singles titles and three doubles titles in his career. His best performances in Grand Slam tournaments have been reaching the quarterfinals of the 2005 US Open, the 2006 Wimbledon Championships, and the 2008 Australian Open.

Arguably Finland's best player ever, Nieminen is the highest-ranked Finn in rankings history, and is also the first and so far only Finnish player to have won an ATP singles title and to have reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event. He is also notable for winning the shortest recorded professional tennis match in Open Era history, defeating Bernard Tomic in just 28 minutes and 20 seconds in the first round of the 2014 Sony Open Tennis.

His wife, Anu Nieminen, is currently Finland's top-ranked badminton women's single player.
