Yeah, go Kiwi. I wish him an easier first round opponent than last year for his comeback match.

First opponent is Haase, a player he should defeat. Then either Youzhny or Tursunov. Reaching the QF is definitely possible.

Re: 2008 Grass court season!!! Gooooooo Kiwi!!!

Took him a little bit longer than expected.

Next up is Youzhny.

Re: 2008 Grass court season!!! Gooooooo Kiwi!!!

We couldn't watch the first set, but as soon as he broke in the 2nd set, I had a pretty good feeling that he is still going to win it!

Damn, but Youzhny is going to be difficult

Ljubicic/Söderling won 6-3 7-5

No chance at all.

That doesn't bode well for Kiwi/Kohli in Beijing.

Third CC match against Youzhny. He needs a good serving day and a couple of UEs on Youzhny's side wouldn't hurt either.

Re: 2008 Grass court season!!! Gooooooo Kiwi!!!

He won against Youzhny.

I could only watch the first set which Youzhny gifted him thanks to some terrible volley errors.

Next up is Llodra, the last match where he has a realistic chance to win.

EDIT:

btw. it would be nice if someone could record his next matches, especially a possible match against Federer.

The power supply unit of my computer died today (hopefully it didnt affect my hard discs) and it will take a couple of days until I have a new one and can record matches again.

Come on Kiwi!

Time to beat Llodra for a semifinal spot!

[QUOTE=Four:Love;7183740]I could only watch the first set which Youzhny gifted him thanks to some terrible volley errors.
Yes, this was horrible of Youzhny. And the break in the third set was a bit lucky too because Youzhny's string tore after his serve and Kiwi won the point easily after the return because Youzhny couldn't control the ball anymore. But I would have had a good feeling for Kiwi nevertheless.

Re: 2008 Grass court season!!! Gooooooo Kiwi!!!

Would be nice if he could win a set. But if he's going to lose in 3 close sets, then I'd rather see him get thrashed in 2.

Lucky for me that the german office of the power unit manufacturer (ENERMAX) is in Hamburg, so I went there and they repaired it right away.

Re: 2008 Grass court season!!! Gooooooo Kiwi!!!

Except one close game in which he 0-40 and another break point after deuce with two or three looks on a 2nd serve, Kiwi didn't have much chance against Federer.

This was a bit too easy for my taste, but you can't do anything against that if you're not playing very well yourself and Federer has a somewhat normal form.

Kiwi's serve % much too low to have easier holds


I hope he can go to Wimbledon, keep and even improve this level of form!
