Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!

The 2nd set didn't change much, still very strong serves by both sides. But Kiwi had a little nonattention and Zimonjic broke and carried the break until the end of the set and there was no chance for Kiwi to break back.

Now I only hope that Kiwi holds his serve the whole third set without getting broken or else he will lose Zimonjic serving very strong currently, that's a hard job to win this first round at the moment.

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

Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!

oh damn, what a disappointing result
Kiwi lost 7-6(1) 3-6 4-6

I think he didn't have a break point the whole match and Zimonjic served extraordinarly and played a very good match. There have been a few little situations that Kiwi blew, but Zimonjic was just too strong today overall and it would have needed a much better playing Kiwi than today.

first round loss in Halle


Could somebody understand why he didn't shake hands with Grillotti as the match was over? Because Grillotti once again was deaf and didn't hear the net serve? Or was there something that I missed?

Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!

I think it was an embarrassing match from Kiefer today. Very bad returns, the same as last year against Schüttler. Maybe the half qualifying field would have had a chance against him today. I hope it will help him that he can't play against Zimonjic in Wimbledon.

but I can't say that I'm surprised

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!

Lots of serves have been just unreturnable, Zimonjic served 215km/h or better on every third serve and his 2nd serves also haven't been a big weakness either.

A few times Kiwi would have had to return better when he saw some 2nd serves. He couldn't get them in and he made a few bad decisions in his own service games to get broken.

Very unfortunate for Kiwi that there is always something that interrupts his good runs. The circumstances under which he came to Halle this year haven't been the best and facing this red hot qualifier who played strong today did the rest

Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!

Also the time that he has off now between Halle and Wimbledon is really LONG

However, if he makes a good run at Wimbledon I will forget about Halle quickly LOL

but it also must hurt him a lot, he's the one who is most disappointed I guess

Yes, he looked a bit as if he wanted to cry at the end imo.

Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!


Kiwi made some really silly errors when he had those half-chances. But to be fair to him (and props to Becker for standing up for him considering their history), he hasn't been able to train much in the past week due to his neck injury and was lacking grass practice. Hopefully he'll go far in the doubles with Waske and gets some practice that way.

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
