Yeah, it's not. Even without the rain, the chances to see Kiefer on a showcourt were pretty slim, I guess.

If he defeats Santoro tomorrow, then it would be even more surprising than his win in Miami 2006 where he was in top form. He's got nothing to lose.

Wow, Kiwi already won a set! 1st 6-4!!
the scoreboard doesn't give more details than only the score, right? So we don't know much more, but it's a very promising start

but judging from the other courts it looks too cloudy for my liking, curious whether his match has to be suspended or not

Up to now he didn't face any bps, I think. 4:1 in the 2nd set. Come on!

I just saw the score scroll across the tv as I watch James' match and almost fell off the chair! Such a routine win! Kiwi's doing so well!!!!!

Hopefully he can keep this going!

Re: The KIWI grows on Wimbledon's grass thread (Ver 2.0)

look at these stats


Match Summary

Kiefer (GER) -- Santoro (FRA)

1st Serve %........... 42 of 75 = 56 % -- 65 of 99 = 66 %
Aces.................. 9 -- 4
Double Faults......... 0 -- 3
Unforced Errors...... 19 -- 12
Winning % on 1st Serve 38 of 42 = 90 % -- 41 of 65 = 63 %
Winning % on 2nd Serve 22 of 33 = 67 % -- 17 of 34 = 50 %
Winners (Including Service) 56 -- 17
Receiving Points Won.. 41 of 99 = 41 % -- 15 of 75 = 20 %
Break Point Conversions 3 of 12 = 25 % -- 0 of 0 = 0 %
Net Approaches........ 35 of 42 = 83 % -- 18 of 39 = 46 %
Total Points Won..... 101 -- 73


These numbers are really good. Great winning % on 1st serve, no break points faced the entire match(!) and very good conversion at the net. Plus 56 winners! He had 9 aces so he still had 47 winners except the serve when the ball was in play. Must have been lots of volley winners and hopefully a few ones from the baseline, too.

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

Unbelievable, but that's Kiwi!

Well done and keep on going, probably against Djokovic (or Delic).
But with these stats he can reach many more.

Federer - Haas - Monaco


Werder Bremen - Brøndby IF - Chicago Blackhawks

Thumbs up Re: The KIWI grows on Wimbledon's grass thread (Ver 2.0)

This win was a bit unexpected,he is good on grass though.
If his next opponent is Djokovic,probably I can watch this match on TV!
Go Kiwi,just kill that "I can't breathe when I lag" cheater!

Cheer for: Wawrinka Murray Ljubicic Gonzalez Mahut Nishikori Soderling Tipsarevic Mathieu Monfils Muller Tsonga Berdych Acasuso O.Rochus Kiefer...
