There is a local chain of resturants here in Austin, Tx, called Weiner Schnitzel. There is a lot of German settlers who settled around here in Texas and you'll find several German sounding towns nearby with lots of German food. I can eat a bratwurst wrapped in a flour tortilla (remember I'm in Texas) all day long.

Besides the food, there is a lot of German influence in central Texas with Oktoberfest and the weiner dog races, where we race daschunds. My dogs Oscar and Otto never cross the finish line

Re: KIWI site updates!!! -- translations & discussion --

I translated the latest entry with babelfish. He mentioned something about being surprised of the reaction to his hitting aces & donating a $100/each. Is he surprised by the compliments or did someone make a negative comment?

And he is skipping Sydney

Quote:
07.01.2005 : Gutes Spiel, schlechtes Spiel !?!?
Aus im Viertelfinale. Ärger. Matchball vergeigt im zweiten...

Nein, so will ich das nicht stehen lassen. Ein guter Jahresauftakt nach langer Verletzung. Zwei gute Spieler geschlagen, dem dritten mit Pech unterlegen - und das nach der langen Verletzungspause!

Ich bin noch nicht stabil, kann noch nicht konstant auf dem Niveau spielen, das ich vor meiner Verletzung hatte. Damit muß ich mich abfinden, auch wenn es mir mit meinem Ehrgeiz schwer fällt.

Ich darf nicht an die Form der US-Serie des letzten Jahres denken, sondern, wie ich vor zwölf Monaten in die Saison gestolpert bin: mit Niederlagen. Vier in Folge. Nun waren es zwei Siege. Eine ordentliche Bilanz!

Zwölf Asse halfen nicht zum Sieg über Rochus. Im Turnierverlauf gelangen mir 18 dieser Winnerschläge. Ich stocke auf 2000 Euro auf und wundere mich über manchen Eintrag hier im Gästebuch zu diesem Thema.

Ach ja. In Sydney werden keine Asse hinzukommen können. Die dreieinhalb Stunden auf dem Acker haben mich doch etwas mitgenommen. Rücken und Handgelenk schmerzen. Ich werde eine Turnierpause einlegen, trainieren und mich ordentlich auf Melbourne vorbereiten.

Ich melde mich - Euer KIWI

Re: KIWI site updates!!! -- translations & discussion --

There are a few negative comments in the GB about that.

Things like "you've earned 4,9 millions in your career and now you donate only 100 $/ace. You should donate 1000. the members of my tennisclub have donated 3500 and we are only students"

07.01.2005: Good match, bad match?!
Out in quarterfinals. Anger. Match point blown in the 2nd set...

No, I want to deny that. It was a good start after long injury. I have beaten two good players and I had bad luck in the third match - and all that after a long injury break.

I'm not stable yet, I can't consisently play yet on the niveau I had before my injury. I have to deal with that, even though it's a tough pill to swallow because I'm very ambitious. I may not think of the form of the US Open Series of last year, I have to remember how I started 12 months ago: with losses. Four in a row. Now it have been two wins. This record is okay.

Twelve aces have not been enough for a victory over Rochus. I hit 18 aces in this tournament. I will round up to 2000 Euro and I'm surprised about some entries in my guestbook concerning this topic.

In Sydney no more aces will follow. The three and a half hours on the court have been a little bit too much for me. My back and wrist are hurting. I will take a litte tournament break, I will practise and do a proper preparation for Melbourne.

I will let you know - Yours Kiwi

I'm just happy that Kiwi is doing something for the victims. Tennis athletes as a whole is at least donating. Most tennis players don't rack up the millions like most athletes and those are the ones I haven't heard them donating a cent.

For example, Michael Vick quarterback for the Falcons just signed a $130 million deal plus $37 million in bonuses. That is who I would be angry at is players like that who haven't donated a cent. I apologize if he has donated, but just using him as an example.

I think it's a good move... he gets a week of some rest and some practice on the AO courts... i was surprised when he announced that he was going to go to Sydney, cuz originally he wasn't. He's just confusing the hell outta us... But I think it's a smart move...

He was negatively surprised about some entries because some people were bitching he was not giving enough.

No, it's not the English ones, he was relating to a few entries in German.
