great win, hope he can win one more

06-08-2010, 12:10 PM
congrats kiwi, first win since his come back isnt it?

he should atleast reach the 3rd round

06-08-2010, 12:12 PM
This looked like a train wreck waiting to happen all match.

Youzhny just made way too many unforced errors. What was up with the drop shots?
He must have had made 1 drop shot from 10 attempts.

I never trust a one handed backhand player and Youzhny proved that again today.
Of course there are the exceptions, the ones who have mastered the stroke, but in general I'd take a 2 handed backhand player over a single handed backhand ANY day.

well done kiwi :yeah:

06-08-2010, 01:01 PM

Expected result.

Great win Kiwi! I knew he could take this win, what a way to come back on the ATP tour by winning this match. He has a chance to do really well in this event now, hopefully he takes advantage.

youzhny simply doesn't deserve his ranking

Excuse me? Two titles, 4 500 finals, RG QF is not deserving of top 15? Who is it that should be ahead of him?

06-08-2010, 02:42 PM
Kiwi :yeah:

Excuse me? Two titles, 4 500 finals, RG QF is not deserving of top 15? Who is it that should be ahead of him?

i'm not talking about 2006 UO, i'm talking about his last months, 0 sets against berdych, 0 sets against roddick and gulbis, losing against nalbandian and hewitt always at the beginning of tournaments, losing 2-0 to stakhovsky in doha, being seeded #3 and sucking against winning-nothing-since-2000 kiefer and so on

06-08-2010, 03:23 PM
You've lost me. What the heck is 2006 UO? Should they make rankings based on three months, instead of a year? RG QF is a bad result because of one poorly played match against a very inform opponent? They should give penalty points for every sucky performance so that you can sleep at night? Murray, Djokovic and Federer will be delighted at the news. In short, you're full of crap and I still don't have my answer - who should be ahead of him.

06-08-2010, 03:24 PM
good work Nicolas, good knowing i can trust you :D

06-08-2010, 03:33 PM
Kiwi is always on right place and right on time to punish those psychos

06-08-2010, 05:03 PM
Psychos duel. Great to see Kiefer fit again

06-08-2010, 05:13 PM
Nicolas :yeah:

06-08-2010, 05:14 PM
Fuck Ya Keifer!

06-08-2010, 08:19 PM
bravo KIwi:woohoo::woohoo:you really did it...after that first set i wasnt thinking he could come back and win....but he is back at full fitness...i hope that he doesnt get one of the top guys at wimby.:)

06-08-2010, 08:23 PM
Well done to Kiefer! Hopefully he can stay fit. Good player to watch on grass :)

06-08-2010, 11:02 PM
Good to see Kiwi back for the grass season :)

06-08-2010, 11:25 PM
Well, I didn't expect that. :)

06-09-2010, 02:01 AM

06-09-2010, 01:10 PM
