1001 reasons why we all love Kiwi...

Alright, they have this thread in a lot of other forums and, for it's quite fun, I thought why not having one here as well...

I'll start:

1. ... for supporting the German DC team in Slovakia though he couldn't play
2. ... for crying after the doubles final in Athens
3. ... for playing such fantastic tennis at the USO 04
4. ... for looking so cute with shorter hair

There're plenty more reasons that I could list, but I'm sure you'll be happy to post as well...

Wer das Abenteuer sucht, braucht nur ein paar Rechnungen nicht pünktlich zu zahlen.

Respect....

I know I mentioned this the other day in one of the other threads….
I’ve so much respect for Kiwi. Unlike some players doesn’t adopt a clinical relationship towards his fans. He treats them as equals and is constantly keeping them informed.
I’m not saying that ‘all’ players aren’t bothered, I guess they are busy, but kiwi makes that extra effort and has gained so much respect because of it.

Re: 1001 reasons why we all love Kiwi...

damn, 1001 reasons are a lot for Kiwi... not sure if we ever come close to this number due to our limited fan potential as Kiwi is no Roddick, Federer, Coria etc...

but nevertheless, I'll start with the following points


5. ... for having played doubles with Rainer (hopefully more to come in future!)
6. ... for having had a cool Adidas cap
7. ... for having such a cool playing style
8. ... for pumping his fist when he wins important points

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

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

9. ... for his cool homepage and his updates
10. ... that he's every year in Halle (Gerry Weber Open) :-)
11. ... that he's always optimistic
12. ... for the four finals 2004

24. For his boyish enthusiasm when he is asked about his favourite football team, Hannover 96. You can tell he's a true fan, it's quite endearing

My German guys are like the cast of the Wizard of Oz:

Rainer = Lion
Kiwi = Scarecrow
Tommy = Tin Man
Flo = Dorothy

...but I still love 'em
