OMG, ME TOO! For Moscow I thought I'd launch the live scoreboard while I was getting ready for church, and when I did at first, he was winning. Then, well, same thing happened here. So no live scoring for me either tomorrow. I'll just find out when I get home tomorrow night lol

Re: LET'S GET THE MOMENTUM BACK!!! **the KIWI in St Petersburg thread **

Kiwi lost 4-6 2-6

I didn't follow the score until the second set. But seems that he blew so many BP opportunities and struggling to hold his serves.

Although I am sad now, but I am accepting this lost much better than the last one in Moscow. Today, ToJo is better than Kiwi I suppose while in Moscow, Kiwi really blew the match

Hope he will cope with this lost alright and won't affect his confidence in the future.

Please Kiwi, get a title in 2006

GOOD LUCK: Nicolas Kiefer- Tommy Robredo- Andy Roddick- Andre Agassi- Andrei Pavel- Juan Carlos Ferrero- Dominik Hrbaty- Mardy Fish

Re: LET'S GET THE MOMENTUM BACK!!! **the KIWI in St Petersburg thread **

Exactly! From what I saw Kiwi didn't take his chances. I saw once 0-40, and at least one more time 0-30. And there was a chance for Kiefer to break Johansson in almost every service game of the 2nd set because he had a lot of single break point opportunities as well At least he tried until the end and worked for his chances, but couldn't convert them.

This final losing streak is a big handicap now I would go as far as calling it a "jinx" to win his 7th career title. And next time please no more Grillotti on the chair, just jinxes it more

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

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

Re: LET'S GET THE MOMENTUM BACK!!! **the KIWI in St Petersburg thread **

I am sorry but when you are about to break so many times at 0-40,i call this choking.johansson is a very good player but still nicolas had his chances,he didn't take them.he must be very pissed off right now and i would stay away from him for at least...a week.lol.just one week to go before his vacation

Kiwi the softy...

I can feel a loss against Robredo next week in the 2nd round.

btw: The last time he won a main draw match in an indoor Masters Series(Stutgart,Madrid,Paris) was....1998.

Ugh. Is it bad that I'm not even sad anymore? I just see a score in a final and I'm like "Yup..."

Let's hope either in Paris or in 2006 this final losing streak ends... We've all been waiting long enough!!!!!

Re: LET'S GET THE MOMENTUM BACK!!! **the KIWI in St Petersburg thread **

I really normally wouldn't care that much that he lost in a final vs a good player. I'm just really worried about his mentality now. I just hope he still believes( as much as we do) that he can win more titles and be a much better player(as he's been in the past)

Keep on truckn Kiwi!!!!!!!

Well, I've seen the match. Nicolas seemed quite tired... Yes, there was 0-40 and several times 0-30. But then - all the times - Kiwi couldn't get ToJo's serve although it was about 170-180 km/h... and Thomas somethimes did such aces 2-3 times in a row.

Re: LET'S GET THE MOMENTUM BACK!!! **the KIWI in St Petersburg thread **

damn Kiwi , if he doesn't break this finals losing streak soon he will become a genuine headcase (or more of one!)

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
