Good job at least winning the match in two sets!

I'm not that confident if his next opponent is a fit Blake. Why? Because Safin made horrible and deciding errors from time to time in many important situations and I think that Kiwi has to improve his overall play because against a good opponent, he has to earn these points much more.

But it's good so far and this win should make him Top 200 again!

He's unlikely to get wild cards for the big tournaments, therefore he had to use his protected ranking for the Masters and will have to do so for the US Open.

He got WCs for Newport and L.A.

Can't say that I am very happy with today's performance. At least he won.

I am back to the hotel.kiwi played way better than in montreal and his serve was better too.Safin just lost it.i got several emails telling me how i am.it seems that a few people saw me collapsed when Nicolas was practicing.I didn't want to post it.i am better.i just need to cool down and rest.

Re: KIWI returns to the USA! Next stop, Cincy!!! (summer hardcourt 2007)

Kiwi against Blake is the third match tomorrow on Centre Court after 11am local time. So I guess around 8 in the evening for the ones in central Europe.


Good luck Kiwi, after I saw Blake a bit against Falla, I think Kiwi has a chance if Blake continues to be not that overly impressive!

I wouldn't be too sad if Blake had a bad day and hit tons of UEs like Safin.

Re: KIWI returns to the USA! Next stop, Cincy!!! (summer hardcourt 2007)

he seems to have a good time over there, quite relaxed atmosphere. good for him, good to hear that. thanks for the update!

now let's hope he can carry the mood with him on court and take out blake. it's surely not impossible. with kohli probably getting kicked his ass today, kiwi's the last german in the field. keep your fingers crossed!
