The Green Green Grass of Home: Tournament Thread

Clay season is over and Viktor is moving onto grass court.

He is in both singles and doubles (with Djokovic) in Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany.

Re: The Green Green Grass of Home: Tournament Thread

tough draw - Kiefer, then possibly Melzer - but could win both if he can get his serve going. Should definately be more dangerous on the green stuff than the red....

Up a break but already but Kiefer is not at the top of his game. Needs to improve his bp conversion. No problem with his serve so far.

Re: The Green Green Grass of Home: Tournament Thread

Other than excellent serve by Kiefer, I really can't say much. Viktor is totally lost on the court there and I have no idea why.

Re: The Green Green Grass of Home: Tournament Thread

Match ended with Viktor's forehand into the net. *sigh*

He left the court immediately, without even putting his racket into his bag.

Re: The Green Green Grass of Home: Tournament Thread

Good luck to Viktor this grass season! I expect a strong showing from him at Wimbledon!

Marcos Baghdatis Forever!

Through the good and the bad, always my #1, no matter what the rankings say

If he finds his serve, which is MIA for sometimes.

Re: The Green Green Grass of Home: Tournament Thread

Hmmm Friday, eh? Viktor should try to win for me I could be around on Friday

So overly posh and overly pricey though

Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer
