Great match! One handed backhands, perfect forehands by Kohly, both players playing like gladiators in hell.

I think Kohly played a little better, but the little dude is really good, I mean, who the hell thought he would make the final here?

I think some people think he needs to retire ASAP. Well, in your faces!

BTW: I lost 3200 Vcash.

How has Rochus looked this week, I followed his livescore with Bellucci but never got a chance to see his Paire match or this match. Really surprising run to say the least

Cauz no one cares about New Zealand?

But great match from Rochus, hope he gets back to top 50 really soon.

Who cares flying fuck if you lost bet. :lol:

Rochus is playing his best tennis of the last 3 years this week. But really disappoting loss for Kohli.

Rochus yesterday and today was just awesome! I love his game when is on! So much variety!

Sad abou Kholi who didn't play that bad, and also so doubtful line calls against him in the last game.

Anyway I still think Ferrer will win this tournament...

Thanks. You know, this is kinda weird, but I was pretty sure this was sydney and the match between Baggy and Julien was in Auckland.

Very strange, he was so shit in the second half of last year, after having a decent first half. Hope he is back, he can easily be top 50 if he's fit and in form.

Kohli :smash:

Had the opportunities

it was kind of funny to see Rochus struggling when Kohlschreiber had to moonball a bit at times with his backhand

there were a couple of suspicious calls by linesmen and Kohlschreiber got even distracted on deuce when Ollie was serving for the match.

by the way good job Rochus! haven't seen a single match of the other half so I don't if Ferru is keen to tank or if the belgian stands a chance.

Watched the first two sets of this match yesterday night.
Both players highly struggling with the circumstances (wind), but despite that, quite an enjoyable watch.

Rochus should have served out the first set but somehow managed to produce 4 UEs in a row, handing Kohli the re-break and eventually the set. :lol:
Fortunately Rochus made amends in the second set which was a total beatdown, with Kohli getting very frustrated at points. I only watched the 3rd until Kohlschreiber broke, thinking it would be over, so this outcome for me is a pleasant surprise.

Well Start Ollie! :rocker2:

Rochus on fire thisweek. To bad kohli but a good start anyway!
