Re: Munich 2010



philipp lost 3-4, 4-6

it pisses me off so much because he had 3 break points at 0-40 down 4-5 in the 2nd set and i really thought he had a favorable draw to the final

Re: Munich 2010

This is why he keeps hanging around 25 and is not breaking into top 15. He has so much trouble to string 3 or more decent matches together and he has so little kampfgeist for a German...

Re: Munich 2010

I saw it only in patches and Baggy played well when I was watching, it's not like he lost to a poor player – but way too many errors from Philipp, obviously.

To me he looked like he was fighting, but his game wasn't working today.
He must be gutted, but it would still have been a long way to win the title.

He says he couldn't deal with Baggy's incredibly flat shots. The ball was really just skimming over the net and then hardly bouncing, Baggy did a good job to make things difficult for him, also varying a lot the length of his shots.
He's very disappointed, as always when he loses on clay which is his favourite surface, it particularly hurts in Munich, and he isn't hiding that he was giving himself a good chance to make it to the SF since he had never lost to Baggy on clay.
And then he's asked about the stories with Petzsche with the German Tennis Association, Kohli says that he for himself wanted to have him on the team in Düsseldorf, but it's not up to him to make the decisions in the end.

Re: Road to Roland-Garros 2010

His draw in Madrid:

Isner - Qualifier
Kohlschreiber - Qualifier
Qualifier - Seppi
Bye - Nadal

Re: Road to Roland-Garros 2010

are you *** kidding me?

isner in the 2nd round? and then if he gets past that nadal?

well atleast if he makes it that far he'll only have to worry about nadal 1 round later and he'll get a bit more points.

Re: Road to Roland-Garros 2010

Kohli has to play Giraldo in 1st round I think with Chela he´s the best qualifier and not so easy to beat on clay. Guys like C Rochus, Anderson or Dolgopolov would have been much easier. But he should make the 1/8 final. Isner isn´t that good on clay and has played final in Belgrade so maybe he´s tired. But why does he always have to play Nadal in 2nd or 3rd round? So unlucky... And he has 90 points to defend (=1/8 final) so he won´t add some points to his ranking.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Re: Road to Roland-Garros 2010

Yep, Giraldo has been in red-hot form lately, I really don't like his draw.
At least he plays on a TV court tomorrow, strangely enough (4th match of the day).

He plays in doubles with the other Philipp.

Are there 2 show courts (MANOLO SANTANA + ARANTXA SANCHEZ VICARIO) or is Stadium 3 also a show court?

Let´s see
