Re: ATTENTION Kiefer fans!!!! --- Kiwi in Halle!!!!

VERY WELL DONE, Nicolas!!!!!!!!!!

Nicolas defeated Jonas 5-7 6-4 6-4

AWESOME!!!!

he was already up *5-4 in the first set but lost serve twice to give away the 1st set.

In the 3rd set he blew lots of break points early and I had doubts that all these missed chances will come back on him and that he could finally lose, but then, at 4-4 in the 3rd set, he broke Bjorkman's serve to love for the match-deciding break!!! YAY!!!




That was really a good win, Nicolas!!! Bjorkman on grass is certainly not easy!

Continue like that, I'm so happy now!

too bad they meet so early

very tough match then... I didn't see this match (we couldn't see it because of ZDF ) but Rainer seemed having played a very good match and returned also well. Because otherwise you couldn't win against Johansson's strong serve

Re: ATTENTION Kiefer fans!!!! --- Kiwi in Halle!!!!

just to complete things also the short interview from Kiwi after his loss against Rainer...

English version:
Quote:
Yesterday you already told us that you weren’t 100 percent on the court. Today the same?
I think you could see it. I practiced really hard the last days and never slept as good as I liked to. But that doesn’t matter. I always go out on the court to win the matches. In the first set I served quite good in general, except one game I was inattentively and got the stupid break. The result sounds like a tough match, but actually these were all fast and easy games. Rainer served well and solid all the time, but I also won my service to love or to 15. As I said, the exception was this game in the first set, when I was 40:0 in the lead but also got the break. I’m very angry about the way I was defeated. I really wanted to go on some further matches, at least the semis. My head wanted, but I couldn’t develop any tension in my game. I have to improve this for Wimbledon.

It sounds like a very easy win for Rainer, doesn’t it?
Yes, for him it was really easy, I think. There wasn’t any danger for him the whole match. He served really good, but at least my returns were also really bad. He played very solid tennis, therefore he absolutely deserved to win.

What do you think: How far Rainer will succeed?
Naturally it is nice to lose against the next champion, therefore I hope he will win on Sunday. I urgently need some rest. I lost the doubles, lost the singles, now I take my prize money and then I go home.
German version:
Quote:
Gestern sagten Sie schon, Sie seien nicht 100 Prozent auf dem Platz gewesen. War das heute genauso?
Das hat man wohl gesehen. Ich habe viel trainiert in den letzten Tagen, habe nie gut geschlafen, aber das ist egal. Wenn ich auf den Platz gehe, dann auch um zu gewinnen. Im ersten Satz habe ich gut aufgeschlagen, nur einmal nicht aufgepasst. Dann war das dumme Break da. Das Ergebnis hörte sich knapp an, aber eigentlich waren das ja alles schnelle glatte Spiele. Rainer hat einfach konstant und gut aufgeschlagen, ich habe meine Services aber auch immer zu Null oder zu 15 durchgebracht. Ausnahme war das eine Spiel im ersten Satz, als ich 40:0 führte und dennoch das Break bekommen habe. Mich ärgert die Art und Weise, wie ich verloren habe. Ich hatte mir einiges vorgenommen, weil ich hier wieder Halbfinale spielen wollte. Mein Kopf wollte, aber es kam einfach keine Spannung auf. Jetzt muss ich daran arbeiten, Wimbledon wieder besser drauf zu sein.

Das hört sich an, als sei es ein recht einfacher Sieg für Rainer gewesen?
Ja, für ihn war es heute wohl recht einfach. Es bestand ja nie eine Gefahr für ihn. Er hat zwar gut aufgeschlagen, aber ich habe auch schlecht returniert. Er spielt eben sehr solides Tennis und hat verdient gewonnen.

Was meinen Sie, wie weit wird Rainer noch kommen?
Es ist natürlich immer schön, gegen den späteren Turniersieger zu verlieren, daher hoffe ich, dass er noch weiter kommt und am Sonntag die Trophäe hochhält. Ich dagegen brauche jetzt ein bisschen Ruhe. Ich habe im Doppel verloren, im Einzel verloren, ich hole mir jetzt mein Preisgeld ab, und dann fahre ich nach Hause.
yes, that sounds mentally exhausted... sure, it was a great chance to get another good result in Nottingham, but instead of crashing out in Nottingham, I'd rather love to see him winning three or four rounds in Wimbledon...

Re: ATTENTION Kiefer fans!!!! --- Kiwi in Halle!!!!

Good to see that this time of the year with the grass tournaments is arriving soon, especially Halle.


Kiwi beating Federer on grass that's my ultimate dream
But that he did that seems already so long ago
