Road to Wimbledon - Halle

Well Wimbledon is just around the corner now and philipp has 3rd round points to defend.

He starts things off at Halle but i have to say his draw sucks

possible third round encounter with roger federer

Re: Road to Wimbledon - Halle

He has a poor h2h against Steps, making it past the first round will already be tough enough if Radek is fit.

(1) FEDERER, Roger SUI vs. NIEMINEN, Jarkko FIN
FALLA, Alejandro COL vs. Qualifier
CHIUDINELLI, Marco SUI vs. ROCHUS, Olivier BEL
(5) STEPANEK, Radek CZE vs. KOHLSCHREIBER, Philipp GER

(4) FERRERO, Juan Carlos ESP vs. Qualifier
LACKO, Lukas SVK vs. CHARDY, Jérémy FRA
TROICKI, Viktor SRB vs. GARCIA-LOPEZ, Guillermo ESP
(7) BAGHDATIS, Marcos CYP vs. PETZSCHNER, Philipp GER

Re: Road to Wimbledon - Halle

They play against Fed-Allegro in doubles (he plays with Kas, as expected).

Re: Road to Wimbledon - Halle

unreal

could he have gotten a tougher draw?

granted stepanek is just coming back and he did retire just yesterday against hajek in the final of prostejov so he might not even play and if he does i doubt he'll be 100% in just 3 days time

Re: Road to Wimbledon - Halle

kohli and kas defeated roger and yves 6-4, 7-6

although the second set should have been over alot sooner considering they were up 4-1 at one point then lost 4 straight games

Re: Road to Wimbledon - Halle

It even was on TV here (Halle is a huge Federer lovefest).
I couldn't watch everything, but Kohli was looking OK at the net.

Re: Road to Wimbledon - Halle

They have highlights of the doubles match on the tournament website if you didn't see it:
http://video.gerryweber-open.de/media.1086.0.106.html
The doubles draw was perfect, actually, because it also was the occasion to get some practice on the Center Court, I think they're not allowed to practice there to not ruin the grass. The other Philipp says it feels very different with the grass "plates" and the roof and it takes some time to adjust.
