Re: Thread for all NICOLAS KIEFER supporters

I hear Miami is larger than IW, and IW is flat and pretty easy to get around. You'll need good shoes because the practice courts are right next to the play courts, so you could spend a lot of time going back and forth. One of the excellent things about IW is that there are little golf cart shuttles constantly moving around and they can take you almost anywhere.

The only reason Nic played the US indoor swing last year was because his ranking was 'too low to get into Milano' as he said to me in San Jose, so he had to play here. With his improved ranking and the schedule changes (including Davis Cup the weekend before IW) I just knew he would do the European indoors instead. He runs the risk of losing those Memphis and Scottsdale points against stronger competition, but I'm sure he thought of that before he made his choices.

Congrats on your almost 10 years Kath. I had stopped paying attention to tennis about that time. It was not the best time in my life, but it was ages ago and not worth dwelling on. Onward and upward.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Thanks, Fee . Wasn't really looking for recognition when I said that. It was just a thought that came to me when I started thinking about knowing I will still be supporting someone else in 10 years. Though, because I know this person the fact that I will still be supporting him in 10 years means a little more.

Just a scary thought thinking it was almost 10 years ago when I first saw Nicolas play. I was getting ready to graduate high school then

''Ich brauche noch Zeit''
Der Auftakt bei der Tennis Trophy in St. Anton ist mir gut gelungen: 6:4, 6:4 gegen den Tschechen Tomas Berdych. Es war von meiner Seite ein solides Spiel, das mir zeigte, dass ich auf einem guten Weg bin, dass ich aber sehr wohl noch Zeit brauche, bis ich wieder da bin, wo ich vor meiner Verletzung stand. Zu schaffen machte mir auch noch eine Erkältung, die mich durch die Umstellung von thailändischer Hitze zu europäischer Kälte voll umgehauen hatte. Deshalb konnte ich in den ersten Tagen hier in St. Anton an den bekannten Feten nicht so richtig teilnehmen, bin vielmehr spazieren gegangen und habe mich abseits des Trainings geschont.

Am Freitag muss ich gegen Stefan Koubek ran. Dann entscheidet sich, ob ich ins Finale einziehe. Mein Ziel ist das schon. Danach fliege ich nach Monte Carlo und beginne mit den Vorbereitungen für die Australian Open.

Bis bald - Euer KIWI
Could someone translate that for me? It was on his website today Thanks!

9.12.2004: I still need some time
The first match of the St. Anton Tennis Trophy was successful. 6:4 6:4 against the Czech Thomas Berdych. It was a very solid match from my side which showed me that I'm on a good way, but it also showed me that I still need time until I'm there were I once was before my injury. I was feeling the after-effects of a cold that caught me coming from the heat in Thailand to the cold European weather. That's also the reason why I couldn't participate like I wanted at the known parties during the first days here in St. Anton, I took a walk instead and tried to give me a break away from the practise.

On Friday, I must play against Stefan Koubek. Then it's going to be decided whether I will move to the finals. It's my goal. After that I will go to Monte Carlo and will start my preparations for the Australian Open there.

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

Re: Thread for all NICOLAS KIEFER supporters

another idea I had was that we could get a special thread just for Kiwi's website updates... okay, so far, we've always talked about them here, but why not install a topic named "xxxxxxxxx" (don't know any good name at the moment) and translate, talk and discuss about them there... and this thread we still could use for everything else that doesn't fit for any other topic and other conversations...

what do you think about it?
lets start it for the new season

Re: Thread for all NICOLAS KIEFER supporters

Hey guys .. Have you heard about Kiwi's tattoo ? Last week I was watching a rerun match of Paradon Super Tour 2004 on TV and saw some sort of "dragon tattoo" on Kiwi's right arm. I'm not sure whether it's permanent.

That's a great idea!! With his next website update, whoever sees it first or whatever, when they post about it should just start the new thread!

I believe it is just henna. The pictures of it up close it doesn't look real. You can judge for yourself... I'm going to attach it here

Let's hope that Kiwi updates his homepage once again before Christmas
For my taste, it's already too long ago that he wrote

I know... I am sad everyday when I come here and check his homepage and there is nothing new... But I cannot find anything new myself, and figure no one else is having any luck either Hopefully, like you said, he'll update for Christmas. Even if it's just him telling all of us "merry christmas" that'll satisfy me
