Re: *-Schedule-*

There is no better place than Halle! His favourite tournament, the place where he beat Sampras when nobody expected him to beat anybody and the place where he reached the final when he lost first round everywhere else!! His friends and family will be there! He's going to get a real comebackparty there!!

Re: *-Schedule-*

We already expected him to be back in Halle last year, when he appeared in both draws and now we have to hope for Halle 2007.

I don't believe it until he's on the scoreboard.

Yes, very true. It's "funny" somehow how I I thought almost a year ago "ah, it's nothing serious I think, I hope he is back soon"

As I said a few weeks ago, as four:love said last year that he hopes the struggles to return/to heal are not the beginning of the end of his career, he was closer to the damn-ugly truth than I would have liked him to be...

Re: *-Schedule-*

Looks like the pain is back and he doesn't know if he'll be able to play in Halle. Wohooo!
And he was in Hamburg today, but I only read about it now. Damn.

Kiefer-Comeback fraglich

Nicolas Kiefer hat wegen anhaltender Beschwerden an seinem zweimal operierten linken Handgelenk auch das angepeilte Comeback beim Rasenturnier im westfälischen Halle in zwei Wochen in Frage gestellt.
"Ich weiß selber noch nicht, wann ich auf die Tour zurückkehren kann", erklärte der 29-Jährige am Rande des ATP-Masters in Hamburg.
Kiefer hat seit dem 2. Juni 2006 kein Match mehr bestritten. Damals stürzte er im Zweitrunden-Match gegen den Franzosen Mac Giquel auf sein linkes Handgelenk.

Re: *-Schedule-*

This news doesn't tell us that much. He better makes a statement on his website soon.

Re: *-Schedule-*

I was in Hamburg and I talked to him and he said he will play in Halle and things are looking very good. I also went to the pressconference and he was a bit careful with his optimism there. He was asked if his comeback in Halle is 100 % sure now and he said he doesn`t know because it`s still 4 weeks to go but after the cyst was removed it is a lot better now. He said that he is practicing tennis for only 20 min and taking a break and another 20 min... and he is increasing the practice. If he comes to the point where he can play 2 hours twice a day he`ll know that he can play a whole match again. It's still nearly 4 weeks until the tournament in Halle will start and he said this should be enough time but he doesn`t know it for sure. His comeback will happen anytime soon. That`s what he said.
I believe in what he told me and he was very very positive about Halle when I asked...

Re: *-Schedule-*

I didn't hear it myself, but apparently german commentator Matthias Stach said today, that Kiefer will start practicing in Halle next Monday.

Of course even if it that is true, that still doesn't mean that he'll play for sure. Who knows what happens in one week. But at least it seems, that there is a possibility.

Well, let's wait for more updates coming next week.

Re: *-Schedule-*

Stach sounded very optimisitc. He also said that Kiwi didn't have problems in the last few weeks and that Haas will also be in Halle next week.

Re: *-Schedule-*

Nice update, I didn't hear that today (but I was only watching a bit of Gaudio vs Hewitt, and not more)

Thanks for posting, guys!
