He won the 1st set 6-0, but now he´s a break behind, gifting with a double fault!?
Please, Philipp, don't do the f*cking same as in Cincy (at least he won 6-0 1-6 6-3 there).

Edit: Philipp broke, now it's 2-2 fortunately.

_Chaz
10-25-2010, 06:04 PM
GSM Kohli 6-0 6-3
If he can get past Melzer in the QFs, he´s a real shot at the tourney win here I think.

Now against Melzer

3-0 in the H2H

misty1
10-28-2010, 04:36 PM
true he's 3-0 but this is a different melzer then before

he'll have to be on his very best tommorrow or melzer will mow him down in straights

Is it true that Adidas droped Kohli? I have heard he'll wear Wilson outfit in 2011.

It does look really bad, because he gave w.o. with adductor problems :(

i thought someone said melzer was the one with an injury

seriously though i just give up

STUHL
10-29-2010, 04:01 PM
He said its only preventative. The Pain started after the Double yesterday, but he thinks he will be ready for Valencia :)

Yeah, he'll be 100% Wilson next year.

here's his draw:

(3) VERDASCO, Fernando ESP v QUALIFIER
STAKHOVSKY, Sergiy UKR v SIMON, Gilles FRA
KOHLSCHREIBER, Philipp GER v CHELA, Juan Ignacio ARG
(WC) MARTI, Javier ESP v (6) DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS


what do we think?

i think, once again he has a fantastic shot to go far. Assuming he's healthy and can stay that way

he should be chela, nikolay is awful, stakhovsky is too and so is verdasco

really the only person he needs to avoid here is gilles

dombrfc
10-30-2010, 12:29 PM
Tough to call. I would expect him to beat Chela.

You cannot dismiss Davydenko though.

Good luck!

I am rather doubtful. :confused:

Kohli has come back to play in Wien after an injury, and restarting training just on October 16th, then the new injury yesterday .. :sad:

How could be he ready for such an hard tournament?

Would not be worth have a stop for playing Paris at the best ?!

STUHL
10-30-2010, 07:28 PM
If Kohli is healthy he can reach the semis.

he's really got to gain points somewhere, he is in huge danger of not being seeded for the australian open

he's got the oppertunity to gain a bunch here this week so i hope he takes that chance

I think he is defitnly seeded, because if he not finishes inside the Top 30 he is allowed to count 4 ATP 250 result, what does mean he would get 90 points more ;).

STUHL
11-02-2010, 02:09 PM
What a bad loss! Lost to Chela 2-6 6-3 2-6!
Maybe he wasn't ready for the Tournament. But he is at least able to count a third atp 250 tornament to count to add to his ranking!

misty1
11-02-2010, 08:02 PM
there's another great chance and great draw blown:(

STUHL
11-02-2010, 08:12 PM
Yeah thats the story about kohli! But i don't give up the hope. Next Year could be great when he trains a whole season with McLagen!

STUHL
11-04-2010, 06:46 PM
Kohli said on his homepage, that he was still feeling the abducotr a bit, but its ok now since yesterday. So his training 100% again and hopes for a good Paris Year End Tournament.

good to hear

he lost in the first round again last yeazr so with a nice draw he can gain some major points here.....ofcourse he's had nice draws the last 2 events

hopefully he can take advantage if he gets a good one there though

GreatDraw for Kohli! Has all mugs in his Draw!

Plays Belucci and could face Davydenko in the second round!

misty1
11-05-2010, 07:18 PM
he has to take advantage of this!!

i will be so pissed if he loses first round or doesnt go deep here even if it means beating davy. This is the 3rd tournament in a row with a good draw for him

_Chaz
11-06-2010, 07:48 AM
This draw is really good for him. One of the best possible draws. I mean Bellucci is a HC mug, even lost to James Blake. And we all know Davy sucks so that is his chance and after that Berdshit / Serra / Montanes would wait. Really, if he's fit, I expect a QF here and anything else would be bad. He has to gain these points, otherwise he won't be seeded for AO.

kohli gets the win 6-4, 3-6, 6-1:)

Good with Kohli. Good news! :)

kohli:mad:

dropped the first set 6-7

you cant lose on hard to belluci:o

_Chaz
11-09-2010, 01:25 PM
25 errors in 1st set :rolleyes:
Once he had 0-40 on Bellucci serve but of course couldn't take it -.-
Even if he wins that now, then that was wasted energy because he could've easily won in 2.

_Chaz
11-09-2010, 01:28 PM
30 UE's now :rolleyes:

misty1
11-09-2010, 01:39 PM
oh kohli:mad:

leave it to you to ruin a good draw for the 3rd time in a row and just have a miserable end to the season just like last year

to cap this great morning off clowndasco is beating clement

misty1
11-09-2010, 01:49 PM
another chance to break wasted:rolleyes:

Btw misty, whom would you cheer for in 2nd round? Davy or Kohli?

i have had the misfortune of having to watch matches between my favorite players quite often lately so this sucks

davy is my favorite player so its very hard for me to cheer against him however kohli is my number 2

at this point however i think kohli needs the win more so as hard as it would be to cheer against davy i would cheer for kohli

misty1
11-09-2010, 02:13 PM
2-2 3rd set

_Chaz
11-09-2010, 02:14 PM
Puh... saving 2 BPs in the last game with some good 1st serves.
Now please break his serve Kohli!

misty1
11-09-2010, 02:16 PM
that was scary

he needs to win this match, he's had so many chances to get it done in straights that a 3 set loss would be crushing

misty1
11-09-2010, 02:20 PM
feeding belluci alot of second serves here and its giving him problems

30-30

30-40!

blowing yet another good draw and ending the season broken to loveMisty my friend. You are forgetting about the commiment player rule. Because of the fact that he will not be Top 30 in the end of the season, he is able to count four ATP 250 tournament, so he will gain 90 points more!

Yeah, for next year. He can't suddenly count his World Team Cup points or so. He could count his Doha points next year, I think.

yeah, you pointed that out before i just forgot

it was just out of frustration that he once again let a good draw slip away

obviosuly i dont really want to see him smoked by federer in round 1
