He retired after 6-4 1-6 4-6 1-4 against Minar
They said it was a shoulder problem
My hope is that it isn't so bad, and that he is soon back in action!
Sorry Mary you didn't have better luck with his match and had to witness these unfortunate circumstances and Kiwi not playing well today!
It's okay. There was a lot of fun in the first set & a half. Kiwi and the one ball girl were making all of us on that base line laugh. He was being typical Kiwi and she was probably like 18 and kept rolling her eyes at him and stuff. So Kiwi kept on like taking balls from her or the other kid and then just dropping them so she'd have to run all the way to him and back. They were hysterical! And we all kept laughing so much. And then she left. So I don't know if he asked her to be removed cuz she kept making faces at him and rolling her eyes, or if she quit.
Either way it was quite amusing.
We went to his court right before Seppi/Lee began and I saw that there were two front row seats availible. We grabbed them and I told her that I would not be moving until Kiwi was over.
So, as I promised, I have a lot of pictures to share with you all over the next few days.
One is attached now.
In the first few games he looked really good from the baseline. I was expecting an easy win then. His baseline game just got worse and worse, the game at 4-4 in the third was an absolute shocker. From 40-0 he gifted point after point, it almost looked like a tank.
Yea and you could tell something was really not right at all because the first set and the beginning of the second he was himself. And then as that match went on and he started sucking, he was so lethargic out there. He wasn't talking to himself anymore, he wasn't yelling. He wasn't typical Kiwi losing. And when he called for the trainer and they just talked we all assumed maybe it was a stomach issue or something. But now that I am home and see it was a shoulder thing some little things make sense. Like before the match, during change overs, and when Minar when on a bathroom break, Kiwi kept working on his shoulder. I guess that is why...
