I hope also beats Cilic, a good chance although Davydenko by the result also didn't look too strong in this tournament.

Broken three times in each set. :rolleyes: I think Rainer even lost 5/5 or 4/5 service games. :o

Neely
09-13-2007, 09:48 PM
Kiwi and Rainer suck together, I think this Olympic choke stands too big in their heads. They also couldn't perform in any way in the Davis Cup doubles two years ago when they got a chance to play.

JMG
09-13-2007, 10:15 PM
Yes, both Daviscup matches were really terrible, also against Belarus in 2003. It's probably a safe thing to say that Kiwi won't get the chance to play Olympic doubles this time.

Against Cilic we can finally see him, good luck for that! :clap2:

JMG
09-14-2007, 02:48 PM
Of course they had to move him from center court again. :help:

Cool! :cool: Now Gonzalez, Ljubicic and Robredo left. This could be a little tougher now, at least the names look so.

I won't be able to watch/record tomorrow's match.

Robredo def. Kiefer 7-6(5) 7-5

I could watch from 2-1 in the 2nd set and Kiwi played really well and was an equal competitor. He had three break points (two in a row and one after deuce) in the 11th game, but couldn't convert them :(

In the next game he was down 0-40 and ended the match with a double fault :sad:

The first set tiebreak looks closer than it was because the commentator mentioned that Robredo has had a 6-1 lead in it already.

kiwi10is
09-15-2007, 02:13 PM
Kiwi lost because he made more or less stupid mistakes but not because Robredo was better! That's what should make him confident now

I can't find his match on the scoreboard anymore, but in the live thread I read that the 4-3 lead a break.

I hope he was already up 40-0 in his next game as well ;)

Yappa

I think the score was 4*:3, 30:15.
Hopefully he won't have to rely on PHM's choking skills and win it easily. :)

I don`t think so... the post on his website sounds honest. I don`t think he would write this if he would have canceled because of the rain delays.

Let's hope he will feel better tomorrow. 2nd match after 5 pm on court 2

I looked around on the tournament homepage and thought it's really ridiculous how often they wrote his name Keifer (such a common mistake) on this page http://www.kingfisherairlinesopen.com/press3.php as a headline for the articles :rolls:

Yappa

That's pretty embarassing. :( I noticed it two days ago on the front page, but didn't expect them to repeat the same mistake over and over.
