The Finnish left-hander opened the 2012 season by winning Sydney — his first singles title in six years. Nieminen has set a series of Finnish firsts throughout his career: he is the highest-ranked Finnish player in history and the only one to win an ATP title. Nieminen reached major quarterfinals at the 2006 Wimbledon and 2008 U.S. Open. Nieminen married wife Anu Weckstrom, the No. 1 badminton player in Finland, on June 11, 2005.
