Kiefer will have to serve in 100% of big first serves and volley like Tsonga in te aussie semis to make a close match

Re: Toronto Final: Nadal vs. Kiefer - How many games will Kiefer win?

I was there in Bremen when they met in Davis Cup, and Rafa ran away with it.

I'm telling you if Kiefer can't win indoors on home soil, what chances does he have outdoors on these slow courts? He's got great skills, touch and beautiful shots but just not enough firepower.

Coruts in Toronto are about of medium speed, not slow like Indian Wells and Miami.

This year the conditions have looked a lot heavier than usual. I'm sure the weather has had a significant effect.

Re: Toronto Final: Nadal vs. Kiefer - How many games will Kiefer win?

I expect a scoreline of 6-3, 6-1, at the best. For Raf, in case you didn't get me here.

Nay, the quality difference between both of the Toronto semifinals was... , as anyone who watched both of them like I did today should have noticed...

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Kiefer does have power and he's able to finish points early. He just doesn't have the mentality to defeat Nadal.

He'll probably make it a close first set, lose it and fold like a cheap tent afterwards.

Kiefer has accuracy, he's a good thinker, he's got great variety but he doesn't have power. And no, he doesn't always try to finish points quickly. In fact he's often happy to rally until he finds a good opening.

He's definitely not in the Blake/Youzhny/Tsonga/Gulbis category.
