Kiefer v. Massu

I've been having a look into this match. While I'm an amateur when it comes to tennis handicapping (and probably have no idea what I'm talking about!), Massu doesn't appear to have too many good wins this year against opponents who are at least on his current level, and along with that he's played poorly on hard courts. Kiefer, on the other hand, has a lot more experience this year on hard courts and has done fairly well on them, with wins over Nalbadian and Gaudio back at Indian Wells and general consistency. I believe he went out with an injury at Los Angeles a couple weeks back, so I'm not sure to what extent that may still be affecting him.

Who fancies Kiefer @ 1.44? Does anybody care to share an analysis of this one?

This game is probably a flip of the coin job,first time h2h and you will give the upper hand to Kiefer on surface but Massu on ability to fight!!most likely be a 3 setter wit the winner in a tie-break!!!!

I sure can, but unfortunately I received no message. You sure it got sent okay? Send again if possible. In fact, I'll send you one and tell me if you get it. I'm becoming a little skeptical of whether or not my PM is working at all :(

About Kiefer and that injury he sustained a couple or so weeks back...

are there any sources on the internet for checking up on players' injury status and the like? It would be especially useful if that were possible. For most of us, is it just a guessing game?

[one example I can think of is that of Davydenko. The guy has obviously been affected recently by his 'wrist' injury or whatever it was. He's dropped out of a couple of tournaments in a short time period, and has lost to a number of long odds underdogs in the meantime]
