Re: *-Schedule-*

On his website he has Gstaad on his schedule?! There's only one week between Gstaad and Canada and on top of that Stuttgart is in the same week.

Re: *-Schedule-*

good surprise! He can use some ranking points from the optionals, too... and not only from the Masters and Grand Slams --

And maybe we see a Davis Cup match with him... but I'm not too sure because his last tie is already some time ago and wasn't too successful and the team has reached a lot without him since then...

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: *-Schedule-*

He isn't even nominated for the Daviscup. In the last ties, Kühnen always nominated 5 players at first and took one out few days before the tie. Now he simply picked Berrer and Mayer over Kiefer for whatever reason. There is no doubt that Berrer and Mayer aren't good enough to beat Spain in April. I guess Kühnen hopes for a Haas comeback and then would replace Berrer and Mayer with Haas and Waske. So I doubt Kiwi will get nominated vs Spain.

I also don't get why he didn't commit for any tournament in February.

First I doubt that Kiwi has any motivation left to fight for a place in a team that kicked him out like that. And I also doubt that Haas will be fit enough in April even if he can comeback in Delray. Players who are often injured are too insecure for Kühnen. That`s what he said today So maybe Kühnen is sure that Mayer will beat Nadal. And since we would have choise of ground he can take clay again I am sure that will help!!

official Davis Cup rules say that a team with a nonplaying coach has to nominate 5 players 10 days ahead of the tie and choose 4 out of those 5 players on Thursday before the tie. So I think Kühnen said he will take Kampke as 5th player. Much better choise than Kiwi for sure

That`s what I thought first. But look at the rest of the schedule: he planned the Davis Cup then 3 weeks off followed by Las Vegas, Indian Wells, Miami (another Davis Cup), Monte Carlo, Rome, Hamburg (WTC?), Roland Garros, Gerry Weber, Wimbledon, Gstaad, Toronto, Cincinnati, Olympia, US Open... that`s a tough schedule! Maybe it's not a bad idea to spend 2-3 weeks at home living a normal life before all this

sorry maybe I am overreacting but I am just very disappointed and sad I was looking so much forward to see Kiwi

Re: *-Schedule-*

Sunrise, Usa; cut-off: 71
Berrer, Cilic, Clement, Garcia Lopez, Gicquel, Grosjean, Hanescu, Karlovic, Kiefer, Koubek, Llodra, Mahut, Melzer, Montanes, Rochus O., Sela, Seppi, Simon, Spadea, Starace, Tipsarevic, Vliegen.

Nice to see he would play Sunrise! He can go for the title here if he loses early in IW.

Re: *-Schedule-*

He's only 7th alt in Rome. I don't think this will be enough to get in. Maybe the 4th alt in Monte Carlo will be enough at least. He should have played Munich.

YES!! Germany will only send players who are at least top 24 in the World ranking, reached a 1/4 final in Australian Open or French Open or a Semifinal in a Masters Series Tournament. So because Kiwi was in the Semis in Madrid he is the only German who will be sent to Olympia and it means the world to him. They are thinking of sending Kohlschreiber, too although he didn't pass the German version of the qualy but Kiwi needs a doubles partner down there...
