Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

Why is Kohli even playing there? Yes, obviously sponsors, but where is his pride? I mean day 1 of the Olympics is scheduled saturday and the final in Kitzbühel is also on saturday. What now? He plays and tanks in the quarters on thursday, then flies to England and practises on grass for a day. Didn't he complain something about the German Olympic committee and Tennis Federation and how important the Olympics are and he wants to play etc.? And yet he plays some shitty 250 tournament just days before the Olympics?

And he didn't play Stuttgart 250 right after Wimbledon. It would have made much more sense. And after all this guy is from Augsburg, which is pretty close to Stuttgart.

Well, obviously he can withdraw from Kitzbühel, but he seems to be the "big star" of the tournament right now.

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

i would expect him to either tank early or withdraw. If he manages to make a run deep in hamburg for the first time i could definately see him pulling out

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

he doesn't need to practise at all. suppose the final is scheduled at 1pm local time he can still catch a flight to London and be there for say 6pm London time. all he needs is Olympics orginizers to schedule his first match not to clash with the final.

Regards

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

He Signed up there when it looked like he wasn't going to make the olympics. I think he will withdraw.

Oh and Augsburg is much closer to Kitz than Stuttgart

"Much closer"? C'mon, don't bullshit me.

It's more or less the same, but he'll reach Stuttgart faster.

He hasn't played Stuttgart for two years. I wonder what's the problem this time. Probably Waske once again.

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

I guess he will be there because of his doubles promotion.

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

He will withdraw, I think 99% chance.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

Do not talk about things where you have no idea what you are talking about. Kohli can not withdraw because he signed a contract with Bet-at-home for the doubles competition "GAME OF YOUR LIFE"...he probably tanks in the first round (doubles he will lose for sure with a worse player on his side) ...

Re: Kohli really playing Kitzbühel?

All players who take part in the Olympics have withdrawn recently when they realized that the Olympics start in the end of the previous week, the Olympics really have a bad impact on the other tournaments

useless old guy

Have to agree with that and date of the Olympics is just terrible.

I would like to have no Olympics, because there are players that should take London just as a few day stop for your country.

You have to feel for any tournament that has to make do with Kohli as their "big star".

OMG, are you dumb?

Kitz is over 200 km from Augsburg and Stuttgart only about 160 and only on the highway, to get to Kitz, you have to drive on some shitty roads...
