Kenneth Carlsen

Kenneth has been one of my favourite players for a while now! And since he hasn't got a thread, I decide to make one for him.

This week, Kenneth is in Indianopolis as the 12th seed. He had a bye in R1 and now plays the talented Marcos Baghdatis

good luck!

Re: Kenneth Carlsen

Kenneth is about to start is match on court 4!

Good luck Kenneth

Baghdatis is a tough opponent who took a set of Federer at US Open last year but good luck Kenneth!

Re: Kenneth Carlsen

Thanks Danish Dynamite!

He beat Baghdatis in an exciting three setter match!

Please beat Rusedski too!

Re: Kenneth Carlsen

I just extract this from an article about Rusedski:

Rusedski has a 4-0 record against 32-year-old Carlsen and the pair are due on court in the early hours of Friday morning, British time

I hope that Carlsen can get his first win against Greg!

Re: Kenneth Carlsen

I was able to see him win Memphis and wish him luck in all his matches. He was terrific and so genuinely happy when he won. A lot of fun to see him play.

Loved all the pictures of him.

Kenneth in LA

I found the LA Draw and where Kenneth was on it:

(1) AGASSI, Andre USA vs Q
CARLSEN, Kenneth DEN vs. KIM, Kevin USA
(WC) GOLDSTEIN, Paul USA vs SAULNIER, Cyril FRA
SRICHAPHAN, Paradorn THA vs (6) ANCIC, Mario CRO

(4) HAAS, Tommy GER vs KARLOVIC, Ivo CRO
MALISSE, Xavier BEL vs LEE, Hyung-Taik KOR
CHELA, Juan Ignacio ARG vs BAGHDATIS, Marcos CYP
FISH, Mardy USA vs (5) DENT, Taylor USA

(8) RUSEDSKI, Greg GBR vs Q
MULLER, Gilles LUX vs SPADEA, Vincent USA
GINEPRI, Robby USA vs ARTHURS, Wayne AUS
(WC) BLAKE, James USA vs (3) KIEFER, Nicolas GER

(7) GROSJEAN, Sebastien FRA vs MELLO, Ricardo BRA
Q vs (WC) MAMIIT, Cecil USA
Q vs HERNYCH, Jan CZE
BECK, Karol SVK vs (2) HRBATY, Dominik SVK

This draw is quite tough, Kim did well at Indianapolis this week but I think Kenneth can win and maybe beat Agassi

Re: Kenneth Carlsen

He lost

Kim won 7-6 6-7 6-4

Judging by the score it looks like Kenneth had a lot of chances
