Proudly emblazoned across his black cap, the nickname 'Kiwi' was given to Kiefer 10 years ago, and it stuck. "It started with my coach when I was about 12 or 13," said Kiefer

Re: Why do u call Kiefer Kiwi?

yes that is probably correct, heyrob63!

I remember Neely also said something like that in one of her posts some time ago when somebody asked about the nickname. She also said it started with one of his first tennis coaches in his early youth and there is no particular reason she knows why he started to call him "Kiwi" (no relation to the fruit or New Sealand).
