I don't think he can lose this match to be honest. :)

My US friend told me that the Americans hate Spadea because of some trouble he caused in the Davis Cup team... so maybe they will cheer for Kiwi

Anybody know if his match will be on livestream since he's playing on the show court? I don't have cable :sad:

Straight sets win. :yeah:

They clearly cheered for Vince and were quite happy when Kiefer hit dfs, but oh well. Apart from the horrible service game when serving for the 2nd set, a pretty good performance. A lot better than for example his match against Djokovic in Wimbledon where he had quite a lot of fh UEs. He'll need to keep that solid baseline play to have a chance against Davydenko.

Yes, very good match of Kiwi, clearly the best since his comeback :yeah: Really some very good points and he was also quick and trying to reach all possible shots.

BTW, the commentator said that he wanted the locker #69 :lol:

haha, no problem with the "her", the transition from WTA to MTF and to know where you are currently isn't that easy :p ;)

4th match on Armstrong. Athletics, which already starts at 1 am CET, might get in the way of the Eurosport live coverage of Kiwis match, if the previous matches take too long.

May the power of the Hawkeye be with Nicolas. :)

anyone knows if we can watch the match live online? All chanel I have online shows Court 13 atm :fiery:

Kiefer is down a set :mad:

If you don't have access to the Eurosport stream, then you're screwed, I guess. Eurosport Germany just switched to Kiwis match. The first set was pretty much forgettable anyways, so I don't regret missing it.

I tried the open the link from Channelsurfing, all links show Grosjean's match :help:

I guess I have to pay for the Eurosport stream?

Yappa
08-30-2007, 08:56 PM
Yes, it's a Pay Stream and can only be used by European users.

0:30, but then 4 points in a row from Davydenko. The russian is still leading with a break in the 2nd set. :(

now Grosjean's match is over :) I hope they will show Kiefer's match now.
then again, I have to prepare to go to work shortly :mad:

they're showing Clement-Johansson instead :fiery:

judging from the score, Kiefer is not playing good either :sad:

Yappa
08-30-2007, 09:16 PM
He's getting slaughtered. :help:

They switched to the Haas match after Kiefer lost the 2nd set. Good choice. :lol:

Yeah, nobody expected him to be defeated that easily. That score is shocking.

Can't say anything else, right now. Didn't watch enough to say, what exactly went wrong.

I saw all of what they showed on Eurosport: last game of the first set, I believe complete 2nd set and from 4-0 in the third set

And I can tell you not only the scoreline looks shocking, the performance itself was deeply disappointing. He looked without any fight and almost nothing was working for him.

Kiwi caught a really bad day today, you could almost say he tanked it. He just had no positive reaction or so. Of course is Davydenko hard and was playing well and his serve was working (80% first serve and 80% 1st serve winning % for most stretches), just had the feeling Kiwi was like a mute player with the lack of attitude :o

Yeah I had to look at the score a couple of times to really get it. I thought that he'd atleast win a set, but just an obvious off day:sad: Since he's come back he's sorta been on and off and I think we should expect that hopefully. He'll level out a little bit
