Bad loss!!! Forehand was horrible today so many UE!! This was a good chance wasted Blake was not playing well and Kiwi had many opportunities to break back in the 2nd set.

Damn It would not have been completely out of reach, he was serving well for the most part, but he could not convert enough balls from the baseline. And also not punish often enough shorter balls of Blake. Blake was being a bit more aggressive in the rallies mostly and he got the deciding breaks in each set (an early and a late one).

Now after Nadal and Youzhny lost, his quarter would have opened up quite nicely

Lets hope he is improving that soon!

you think that New Haven is an option? Reading the post on his website I thought that he will go straight to New York because he said something like "nur noch Doppel, dann bin ich in Gedanken schon bei den US Open"

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

he asked for a wildcard there and they decided only today that Ferrer will get it. So maybe Kiwi will play qualy there? Qualy draw comes out at 9 pm local time. So we will know tomorrow... Ancic even refused a wildcard for New Haven and prefers to play quali just to get more matches before US Open. Maybe Kiwi does the same. This would give Abercrombie & Fitch more time to fill their stores before Kiwi comes lol

Cool, thanks for info, I didn't know. So let's see

Ancic playing qualies despite he could have gotten easily direct entry if he commited in time That's funny if you see it this way. But if he wants the additional practice

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

His first round opponent isn't that hard, since he plays against Spadea, but after Montreal (Djokovic) and Cincy (Blake), for the 3rd time in a row a top 10 player is waiting in the 2nd round.

Nikolay Davydenko RUS (4)
vs.
Jesse Levine USA

Nicolas Kiefer GER
vs.
Vincent Spadea USA

Well, if Kiefer wants back in the top 20, then he also needs to be able to defeat the top guys from time to time, so now is the chance to do it.

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

Spadea should be considered a must-win match for his standards, and the best about facing a high seed in the 2nd round is that it will be Davydenko (and not Nadal, Djokovic or Federer). Davydenko in good form is a constant machine which will not give him too many errors, but maybe they match up well and the 6-1 6-1 win for Kiwi two years ago wasn't entirely Davydenko's fault but also Kiwi's strength

First comes Spadea! He is sometimes very good and sometimes very bad. You never know... Let's hope for a "not very good day" for Spadea and a good 1st serve day for Kiwi!!
Beating Davydenko at US Open after beating Tursunov and Safin in Montreal and Cincy would give him a ticket to Moskow for sure!
