Re: Paris 2008: The Last Stand

They've won against some very good teams. Lost to Lopez/Verdasco, though (in Barcelona).
But David having to play on all three days... I'm not sure if that's such a good idea.

It was a stupid decision against Russia, he was totally worn-out against Davydenko and had a strength to play only 1 decent set. But I think that he wants to play again doubles too. If Del Potro steps up like he did last time it is not going to be much of a problem. And on hard indoors surface matches suppose to last less than on clay.

Re: Paris 2008: The Last Stand

Yes, but if he has a first singles against Ferrer, for example?
Well, surely depends on how the first day goes.

Re: Paris 2008: The Last Stand

His serve doesn't look good at all...
The commentators keep suggesting there might be something wrong with his left leg.

I heard that too and I would not be surprised, cause his footwork is sort of much slower getting in the right position.

Wasting 2 BPs, Kiefer saving the first one with exquisite touch volley and the second one with an ace.

Re: Paris 2008: The Last Stand

I think he's moving better now.
Though not really playing any better...

Good hold at love. Still only 45% first serve.

Bad loopy slices gives Kiefer a lead *2:3.
