was there any other option than Kiwi? I don`t think there is anything to justify..
I think there was something to justify. With the way he played he gave back the trust in him for this tie and for the future if there are more available players with good form Kühnen can choose from.
The first set killed me from inside. If he had at least won the TB, I wouldn't have cared about the rest...
Yes, this was a great first set, although he got lucky somehow to have reached the tiebreak IMO (this break Nadal gave away).
His backhand didn't break down under Nadal's pressure and it was very solid. Good to see this time.
although the tie was already over Kiwi was fighting for every point against Lopez today. In the postmatch interview he said he was fighting for the fans who came to see him! Thank you Kiwi!! I really enjoyed it!
Thanks for the notice. Nobody being not in Bremen could follow it anymore. I would have loved to see it, too
But as I saw the result, I was just glad he won at least one match for the team and himself because he really deserved it
