Re: :=Indian Wells=:
I was at the match today. Wow! I've only seen Nic play in person a few times, but I have never seen him play a match like that. Just about every shot he tried today worked perfectly and the ball always seemed to go exactly where he wanted it to go. Admittedly, it seemed like nothing Sarge did worked at all, but Nic still had to play well to get the points. I took just a few pictures, so we'll see how they come out when I get around to developing them.
And here's a funny... I got to the match after most of the crowd had been seated and found the one empty seat left near the court. After a few minutes the woman next to me said 'I think I've seen your picture, with Nic... on Mens Tennis Forums. Are you Fee?' It was Kiwiteami! So we sat together to cheer Nic on, as if he needed our help. After the match was over, Nic went back out to the practice court to work out some more. He has a doubles match tomorrow, so I will try to see him before that and give him the messages (sorry, keep forgetting them, duh...). I have to cheer for Tommy Haas at 10 am, but I am sure that I will see Kiefer again.
Best twitter posts of the epic match:
@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.
@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.
@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
