So he starts his Grass Court Season in Halle and he faces a Qualifier in Round1. He could meet Dolgopolov in Round 2!

could be interesting

STUHL
06-05-2011, 04:52 PM
of course he has to face my other guy Stebe :sad:

STUHL
06-05-2011, 04:53 PM
oh and i forgot, he plays the third Match on Center Court tomorrow!

STUHL
06-06-2011, 02:18 PM
Kohli and Cedrik started.

1-1 but something to mention: Kohli hit a 217Kmh Serve :eek:

misty1
06-06-2011, 02:27 PM
WOW!:eek:

STUHL
06-06-2011, 02:28 PM
And he breaks. 3-2!

He is serving really well. 91% :)

STUHL
06-06-2011, 02:36 PM
Oh no! Kohli slipped away while playing a Volley on the Right Foot.

Medical Time Out! :sad:

Plays again...

STUHL
06-06-2011, 02:57 PM
Kohli wins the first Set 6-4. Like I said, good serving.

STUHL
06-06-2011, 03:06 PM
Stebe breaks Kohli 6-4 0-2*

misty1
06-06-2011, 03:30 PM
his serve seems to have deserted him in the second set

STUHL
06-06-2011, 03:32 PM
Kohli breaks back. 6-4 *3-4

STUHL
06-06-2011, 03:37 PM
Cedrik breaks again, but Kohli gifted it in best fashion :lol:

misty1
06-06-2011, 03:40 PM
what did he do double fault? or one of those shots that goes for the stands

STUHL
06-06-2011, 03:43 PM
no it was a forehand near the net , which went out about 5-6 meters. Near the stands. It looked really funny.

Stebe wins Set Number 2. But Kohli is in a really bad shape. Oh my ...

misty1
06-06-2011, 03:44 PM
is he playing crappy or is he injured? does there appear to be a reason why he's suddenly not looking so good?

STUHL
06-06-2011, 03:49 PM
i don't know. His Level dropped for sure, but you can see that he is a little bit scared, that he might twist the ankle again. YOu can see it when he hits the Forehand

STUHL
06-06-2011, 03:56 PM
Kohli breaks. 2-0 in the Decider now.

STUHL
06-06-2011, 04:08 PM
Great Pass 4-0

STUHL
06-06-2011, 04:19 PM
Kohli wins in the end 6-4 3-6 6-1

Good 3rd Set

STUHL
06-06-2011, 07:19 PM
Fed withdrew, so if he beats Dolgopolov he can go far in this tournament. :)

STUHL
06-08-2011, 04:59 PM
Tomorrow, second Match on Center

STUHL
06-09-2011, 11:48 AM
Kohli is on Court now. And he leads *3-1

misty1
06-09-2011, 11:59 AM
kohli doing good so far

5-2 over dolgopolov, recovered from 0-30 down to hold when serving at 3-1

serving only 47% but still has dropped only 3 points on serve

this set by the way has lasted only 21 minutes

misty1
06-09-2011, 12:07 PM
serving for the set at 5-3

misty1
06-09-2011, 01:09 PM
good win kohli :)

misty1
06-09-2011, 03:43 PM
kohli into the doubles semis with christopher

6-2, 6-4 over nieminen/troicki and didnt face a single break point

those 2 really do make a good team

misty1
06-09-2011, 05:43 PM
so kohli will play lleyton next

he's 1-2 against him but they havent played since 2006 and never on grass

lleyton doesnt look like he's missed much though so kohli will have to play well to beat him

STUHL
06-10-2011, 12:54 PM
Kohli is playing even better then yesterday. 4-4. 7 Aces and full of confidence, but Hewitt isn't bad either.

STUHL
06-10-2011, 01:10 PM
Tiebreak now. Get this Set. It would be really desvered!

misty1

misty1
06-10-2011, 04:52 PM
its looking like it'sll be clownfils in the semi's

he's 0-3 against him

hopefully florian can somehow find a way to win because i really dont want to see kohli lose to clownfils again

ofcourse its no guarantee he'd lose, he is playing good tennis here..but when was the last time he's beaten someone he wasnt able to before?

STUHL
06-11-2011, 09:39 AM
Great Play kohli. today first Match on Center court!

misty1
06-11-2011, 12:21 PM
2 break points right away!

kohli holds to 30

another chance to break now

deuce

adv. kohli

adv. monfils

holds

2-1 kohli

i see his terrible break point conversion rate continues :o 1/5 already

misty1
06-11-2011, 12:38 PM
kohli holds to 30 again

the difference is he always gets out to a quick lead then monfils closes in and kohli holds anyway

3-1 kohli

he's only at 33% first serve though, thats the lowest i've ever seen him be. A double break would be nice for sure

misty1
06-11-2011, 12:43 PM
monfils holds after deuce again, no break points for kohli that time though

3-2..

15-0

15-15

30-15

40-15

4-2

misty1
06-11-2011, 12:56 PM
once again monfils holds after deuce. A double break would just be so reassuring at this point but he's playing some great tennis so hopefully he can hold on and take this set.

4-3 kohli

15-0

30-0

30-15

40-15

5-3

misty1
06-11-2011, 12:59 PM
2 set points for him now

15-40

30-40

breaks for the set!

6-3

great set by kohli. Did not face a single break point. He can keep this up and he'll have his first win over monfils

misty1
06-11-2011, 01:01 PM
As bilbo pointed out in the Gm thats 5 sets in a row with no break points against him :worship:

misty1

first final ion 2 years and its at home, got to feel good for him

misty1
06-11-2011, 06:40 PM
him and christopher are curently locked at 6-6 against bopanna/quereshi in the doubles semi final

STUHL
06-12-2011, 07:20 AM
Kohli :worship:

I am so proud of you. Keep this form until Wimby please. He is back in the Top 40 either way now and he will make the MD of Montreal and Cinncy. :)

Chris.
06-12-2011, 09:18 AM
Good luck in the final :).

kohli won the title 7-6, 2-0 r.

im happy for kohli that he got his 3rd title but it sucks that it had to end like this

i really hope picasso will be okay for wimbledon:sad:

STUHL
06-12-2011, 12:51 PM
Kohli :worship:

Congratz my boy. Lets see, if he will play Eastbourne next week. He has also an ok draw there, but I do not what him to overplay!

STUHL
06-12-2011, 12:55 PM
But anyway. He played his best Tennis since last summer and was unbelivable after the win against Stebe. Good sign for the upcoming Weeks :)

misty1
06-12-2011, 01:17 PM
he has been very good in his last 4 matches

has gone 7 sets in a row without even facing a break point

hopefully this is the start of his rise back up the rankings and not just a one week thing

with the right draw at wimbledon he will be deadly if he keeps this up

Chris.
06-12-2011, 02:02 PM
Phillip :). He will move up 10 places to be ranked 39.

misty1
06-14-2011, 12:33 AM
so apparently he withdrew, expected

STUHL
06-17-2011, 01:52 PM
Kohli plays Istomin at Wimby. R2 could be Fish. Go Kohli :)

misty1
06-17-2011, 01:56 PM
im still bitter about that last loss to istomin :mad:

Hopefully kohl can keep up his form from Halle and if he can he should get his revenge

he beat fish in their only other meeting but that was back in 2005 so it will be much harder this time. Hopefully he gets past that

STUHL
06-19-2011, 11:42 AM

what a disgusting season for him in grand slams

2nd round at the australian and first round at the french and wimbledon

Chris.
06-20-2011, 01:39 PM
Should not be losing to Istomin on grass.

misty1
06-20-2011, 01:52 PM
nope, and like i said its just a terrible grand slam season for him

has he ever had a worse year?

STUHL
06-27-2011, 07:03 AM
That loss was as worse as it can gets. He said after the Match that he had a torned hamstring, then why does he play, if he is injured?
