Re: French Open!

He can't take his extra-long preparation for Halle this year now.

come on, make the semifinal! He's the Henman of 2005.

lol, even the QF would be awesome!! But first he has to find a way of beating Canas Not an easy opponent and he is normally fitness-wise very strong and Kiwi is trailing the h2h 1:2 so far. The last match is already dating back some time.

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

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

Re: French Open!

So happy for Kiw!!!!!! Hope he can keep this going. But I'm real nervous that he's gonna face Canas in the next round. I think he can pull it off, but it's gonna be tough. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: French Open!

I was so nervous to check the result this morning but he made it easy on himself

I still can not believe how well Kiwi is doing...on clay, no less

Willy is going to cause him a lot more problems than those in the last 3 rounds though. I hope he can still hold it together...the temper, patience, & concentration.

I agree with you about that last photo, Neely. Love to see him smile.

Go Kiwi!!!!

Re: French Open!

I'm glad he read the message board by doing what we told him to do. Win the next 2 games against Igor

I'm hoping Canas will be tired. He will be a tough opponet but we will see how things go tomorrow. If Nicolas keeps fighting and wants it bad enough, he can beat him tomorrow.

Re: French Open!

Kiwi had to withdraw from his match vs. Canas... I'm assuming his neck was just too bad for him to play today...

Re: French Open!

Just too sad that such things happen to him whenever he was on a good run.
Of course this doesn't happen in a Mickey Mouse tournament after he reached the 2nd round... no, always before big matches... bad luck!

but the positive thing is hopefully that it's "only" the neck and not again a wrist, leg problem, something like that... I hope he can get help soon for it, that should be possible. A good Wimbledon result would also be important, the 4th round of Roland Garros is a nice bonus, but the 1st Wimbledon round loss that stands so far in his Entry Ranking could need a bit improvement and on grass this should be possible I hope.

Get well soon Kiwi! really very bad luck!
