Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

Who wins? I'm not acquainted with Kiefer's game that good, but the commonsense reasoning tells me Djokovic should be able to beat him.

You'd think so, but Kiefer did have a very good win over his 2nd round foe, something like 56 winners and 19 errors, that's pretty impressive. Still, since getting to the quarters in his debut, Kiefer hasn't made much of a dent in this tournament. I still voted Novak, maybe in 4 sets.

Kiefer was the only one to win a set against Fed some years ago in Wimby. Hope he can play at a high level.

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

I think Nole in 4.... possibly 5.

I want nothing but the best for Kiwi in his comeback... and he's done very well to get this far, but now it must end. I hate when two favorite players play each other.

Mary and I have been waiting to rumble over this match up for a LONG time.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

Hmmmm...Kiefer actually stands a chance here, despite the odds.

He has got the game, but I am not sure about his head :retard:

I know I will put some Vcash on Kiwi.

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

It's a toss up. If Kiefer was in his 2005 or early 2006 form I would probably favour him since he has more experience on this surface and his game is well suited to it. Djokovic hasn't really overly impressed me in Wimbledon so far and he does seem to look a bit uncomfortable.

But with Kiefer being injured for so long and still a little suspect and Djokovic's will power to push him through I think he might make it but it could be a nail biting five setter.

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

I was immensely impressed with Kiefer's performance against Santoro a couple of days ago, which I saw firsthand, and based on that form I would be very surprised if he doesn't beat Djokovic today. Djokovic is obviously a great player but he is young, lacks Kiefer's grasscourt experience and has yet to prove himself as a topclass grasscourt player, although I don't doubt in 2 or 3 years he will be as formidable on grass as he is on everything else.

But for today's match I got to go with Kiefer in 4.

I support......
Fabrice Santoro

The Magician

Marcos Baghdatis Fernando Gonzalez

Florian Mayer Gustavo Kuerten Richard Gasquet

Feliciano Lopez Lukasz Kubot Hyung-Taik Lee Younes El Alynaoui Dick Norman Aisam Qureshi Dusan Vemic Michal Przysiezny Ernests Gulbis Carlos Moya Andy Murray Jonas Bjorkman Andrei Pavel Olivier Patience Mariano Zabaleta Jarkko Nieminen Fyrstenberg/Matkowski

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

Kiefer is a better grass court player but Djokovic is in better form I suppose, so I will go with Nole

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

I like Kiefer... but he has been out with injury for some time; this maybe too soon of a matchup

Playing Nole and the Magician are two very different matters.

Re: Wimbledon R3: Djokovic vs. Kiefer

Kiefer should be able to win. He has a great game for grass and will have only confidence from starting on a clean slate and picking up some good wins. He's been impressive so far and I expect him to continue.

Djokovic is of course one of the top 4, but he's the player that would least surprise me with an early exit at any tournament. He still hasn't found star level consistency yet, but he's getting very close.
