Ok it is late and I just arrived from california so this message will be short but i will write everything that has happenned in indian wells tomorrow.You want to know where Nicolas is? i will tell you.I got to the airport this morning following an ATP car..who do I see..no way in hell..YES Nicolas.I mean others stayed too after they lost BUT they practiced,he didn't.I was going to my gate when I heard HEY.I turned around,there he was with Sasha,who was carrying all their luggages! lol.So I told him that I was surprised to see him and he asked me why I had to go back home for 2 days.I said to pick up my aunt and I will be there on monday.He smiled and said ok i see you there but don't bring cold weather with you.I later saw him at gate 2,he was reading a book.So he is NOW in miami.ok i am tired.I did my best to cheer for him.Mathieu was just too good.Too bad cause he had practiced a lot.I had a great time and will write more tomorrow.

ok here I go.I arrived in indian wells pretty late on march 7th with a broken luggage,i wasn't too happy plus my sidekick is now dead.Karen,i lost your phone number,you need to email it to me on my aol email.Anyway on march 8th,i got there early.at 9am,there he was jogging shirtless.I got closer and he finally saw me,smiled and said hi and that he would talk to me after his practice.He was practicing with..Safin.Lots of people of course because of Safin.At some point Safin screamed at Nicolas:hey Kiefer why are you hitting so hard this early? Nicolas,not finding this funny at all said:just hit the ball so i said to Nicolas,it is called a practice! Nicolas smiled.After an hour,Nicolas left,people asked for autographs and he was like..get out of my way.I was waiting in a corner and he joined me and we talked.On march 9th,it was cold..so cold.at 9am he was strenghing.He then went to practice with an italian player.I met his wife and kids.They have a 2 years old son and he was hitting the ball already.I was playing with him and Nicolas was like..what is she doing? lol. So i told him,you have a champion right here.lol.Nicolas on that day had like 3 sweaters on,some said that he looked like crap.He practiced 2 hours.March 10th,he practiced again with Sasha.On march 11th,it was raining,so i went shopping with a friend,i got a new luggage.On march 12th i got there at 9am,he was already practicing.I had on my italian soccer vest on.he looked at me and he said i don't like that sweater.lol.then he got mad,screamed at Sasha and hit the water cooler..and broke it.he then after went jogging for 30 minutes.on march 13th,i got up knowing that he was going to lose.At 9am he was on court no2 practicing.i was coughing and he stopped practicing,asking if i was fine.lol.i was there first row to see him lose.he didn't fight at all.Sasha was near me,he was screaming during 3 hours.lol.after the match,Janine had to pick up his clothes on court cause he had forgotten everything.that is basically what happenned at the tournament.he is now in miami.i will let you know that is going on there by computer cause they have some computers at the tournament.

No problem.I am leaving at 3am tonight for miami.He is staying at the same hotel as me so I will get the chance to see him more often and talk to him.Plus we usually have breakfast at the same time.He doesn't like miami too much,at least not as much as Indian wells.He doesn't like the nightlife too much.I will try my best to cheer him up.He has to do something in miami at least! I hope that I can get a computer there.

Yes, that's really surprising somehow and I must say I can't understand why he is still so sceptical about that after testing already at Hopman Cup.

I mean, he's the one who is upset about the calls on the court all the time and some replays showed that he was wrong on some calls which he argued in his own field. And he's a professional who practises or plays almost every day, so you could guess he has enough experience and his eye is well-trained enough. But still mistakes do happen. And I don't think that putting the money in the training of the line umpires, how he suggests it, would solve the problem. Some things are just unbelievably hard to see and very hard to decide, whether a few millimeters of the balls caught the line or not, and this all with the speed of today's game. So why not let the technology help you? I welcome it and I hope it works fine.

OMG what is he doing to us?! What a nerve-racking match! First he blows his 4-2 lead in the 3rd set, then he needs 5 break points to get that break.

But this was the match he needed to win. Now he's the favourite in his eighth or even in his quarter. But the next match against Gonzalez won't be much different I fear. :tape:

7-6(4) 2-6 6-4 :worship:

haha, when looking at his next opponent with Gonzalez, I fear that Gonzalez could have one of these very good days again where he hits almost every shot. On the other side, Gonzalez also gives some hope that he could have a bad day as it is safe to say that he's not the most consistent going around for sure ;)

Kiwi def. Gonzo 6-2 3-6 7-5 :bounce: :woohoo:

I only followed the scoreboard while watching TV (unfortunately I couldn't watch Kiwi's match), but it was a typical roller-coaster from Kiwi again.

My mood was like:
1st set: cool, Kiwi is really hot today, Gonzo must be hitting crazy with so many unforced errors, I'm quite positive this could be a two set match for Kiwi.
2nd set: oh fuck, he lost focus now since the middle of the set, I hope he wins in three
3rd set: damn, he's down a break early... damn, he's down *1-3 and 0-40, hopeless! :eek: but he saved this situation and another three breakpoints of Gonzo in the third set, at least he stays in the match.... he breaks back, yeah! 7th game: Kiwi has 40-0, damn, he blows the lead and drops serve! :mad: ... Gonzalez serving for the match, 30-30, 30-40, do it Kiwi! no. ad Kiwi, do it now! noooo. ad Kiwi, finally he breaks back!

And this all with a happy end to win 7-5 in the third! Good attitude, Kiwi! :D :yeah: That's what we want to see!!!!

Feña served df and missed one shot at *5-4 40-40,then I know Kiwi would win because Feña is a short-tempered player. :crazy: Kiwi's last serve was very good,so he needed not to play that many rallies to hold in love or 40-15! :yeah: Then in Feña's last serve,Kiwi didn't hit that fast in every shot,when Feña forced him,he ran fast and just played a high bounced ball to wait for his ue like Nadal,then Feña netted the ball. :sad:

Yeah, that's the problem I'm afraid of. Calleri is like a surprise box, at best times he was always good for a few very good matches that made it very hard for his opponents to beat him, or almost unbeatable. But I don't think that Calleri is currently capable of doing this, so we have to see how Kiwi likes his game and how Kiwi plays himself.

Kiwi has good contact to top 10 again :yeah: That's important for him because he should take the chance for the Masters Cup seriously this season, after being early in such a good position getting the great Australian Open result.
The gap currently is just 50 points to #10 (Agassi). One more win would be worth 50 points and this could close the gap to Agassi. (and it depends upon the others remaining in the tournament, like Stepanek for example).

Top 10 is close (50 points), top 8 or top 7 for secure Masters Cup qualification would require a lot of more because the gap to top10 and top8 is currently quite huge.

He said to grab his bag and follow.during one practice,he stopped and sasha was like what? There was a huge reptile on court and hrbaty was chasing it around the court,nicolas was scared.lol.nicolas signed autographs and took pics all week long,he was nice.his matches were intense.sasha didn't like me at first.i told nicolas and then sasha changed,even tried to say words in french.lol.once we were in the elevator,he was eating an ice cream and he told me to stop shopping.i was like..what?
