Easy one for Kiefer. I expected a lot more from Benneteau but glad Kiefer won.

91 % first serve points won and only 8 UE's.

Looks like he confirmed his current form.

Looked like a good match of Kiefer, unfortunately it was no show court.

Kiefer is somebody who's 1st serve percentage usually isn't that high and can fall under 50%, his 2nd serve isn't always such a force, so facing only one break the entire match is pretty good for him.

I always had the tough Wimbledon match a few years ago in the back of my mind. And there was some heat between the two as well.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
