Auckland QF: Kohlschreiber def. Almagro 7-6(5) 6-4

Yay that's the way Kohli
Played very offensive and it seems he's really enjoying himself atm as he says himself.

Won a tough 1st set without any break of serve and broke for the match in the 2nd when Almagro double faulted.

Paire or Rochus next. Very winnable, should reach the final.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Auckland QF: Kohlschreiber def. Almagro 7-6(7-5), 6-4

Good win kohli

he was actually made to work harder on his own service games. He went down the mb twice in the tiebreaker but came back right away each time. There were no break points at all between the 2 in the 2nd set until the final service game when kohli broke for the match

real shot at a final now.

Kohli was clutch. Fought back in virtually all of his service games.

The df on match point was funny.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Re: Auckland QF: Kohlschreiber def. Almagro 7-6(5) 6-4

Vintage AlMUGro

He had 0-15 or 15-30 in like 6 or 7 return service games and never capitalised

Went into TB up a mini break twice but threw it back immediately both times

1st serve percentage like a monster before the TB then disappeared in the TB

2nd set holding with ease again until serving to stay in it

That tiebreak was awesome from Kohli, really took it to Nico.

Almagro served tremendously well for most of the match. Alot of free points and 1-2 punches, but he wasn't too good in the rallies. Kohli was more offensive and really stepped up in the rallies, despite alot of chances for Almagro in the first set to get a break.

High quality match! Kohli fully deserved it as he was the aggressor. Nice shotmaking.
This is the Kohli we were used to see 3 years ago.

Dolgopolov Petzschner Paire

*Tap tap tap tap* How long must I wait for young Nicolas to exit the top 20?

*Whisper* Good job Kohli

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Here's a tip. Don't regret nothin'. You ain't got the time. Before you know it, you'll be 60 something years old giving free advice to some cheapskate runt... Then going home and regretting it.
