Nicolas has arrived in america.Next up,it is memphis.I will be there on sunday and will let you know what is going on if my sidekick works there.lol.Karen will be joining me 2 days later.I hope that he can play.Since it is a very small tournament,i will get the chance to be in his face all the time..poor guy.lol.There is not a lot of good players there maybe except Haas and Roddick so he has good chances.

Screw the Davis Cup and back to individual play on Tour together with Sascha ;)

The media were so critical about him on Monday, I couldn't believe it. Looks like they had disputes before the tie and also on Saturday. I think it's still the problem between him and Haas, I mean it's not difficult to see that Haas doesn't like him. For example, last year he pronounced "Nicolas" with the "s" and I wonder why he was doing that.

I hope he can play Memphis. I wouldn't say it's unimportant. Maybe he plays only 7 optionals this year and if he want to have 5 good optionals, he has to win matches as soon as possible.

Everything goes, even when Kiefer and Haas are no good friends. Becker and Stich also didn't like each other. Still it was good enough for a Gold medal as a double team and for several other good results for the Davis Cup team.

Damn, do I like it when Davis Cup is gone now for a while and back to individual play on the Tour :lol: A bit embarassing that our Germans can't find together at any price it seems, but at the same time I think it's not as bad as reported by the media :shrug: But there is a big burden for them when they play for Davis Cup, that's for sure.

The Davis Cup and Kiefer will never be friends. Somehow I have the feeling, that he can´t cope well with the pressure when he has to play in a team. The reason for his weak win/loss record in Davis Cup has to be mental, that´s for sure.

I´m so happy that he plays again next week. Let´s prove the critics (especially the german media :fiery: ) wrong Kiwi!!!

And as for the davis cup thing, that happened so he can focus on the slams ;) WOOT!

Like i said it is a very small tournament.The hotel is a 5 minutes walk from the tennis tournament.The players are everywhere.So for sure Nicolas and Haas will see eachother.He better not say something stupid about Nicolas or scream at him.Cause i know the girl/almost hooker who was with Tommy 3 years ago and i will call her.lol.Yes a lot of stuff is going on in that tiny tournament.Nicolas needs to play a little before indian wells and miami.

Some dangerous opponents are close to him.
Söderling, Mirnyi, Carlsen ---> they are all no walkovers on indoor surfaces
not sure about Murray
Rainer being at the moment no threat

against Björkman, Kiwi has a close and very extended h2h of 6-5, but for 2006 Bjorkman looks like he is not as successful in singles anymore
Normally Kiwi should not lose this

kiwiteami
02-18-2006, 04:34 PM
I hate Bjorkman,he better not ruin my trip.lol.I am leaving tomorrow so i will be giving you news.I will probably see him when I get there if he is at the hotel.Does someone know if he is playing doubles? I don,t know how is Murray indoor.Lets hope he has a good tournament because since australia,it hasn't been so good.

also important is that Kiwi does not want to ruin your trip and that he plays well
if playing well, he should come out of this match at the winner IMO

I think at least he can win 3 matches.(Murray will be tired.)Max plays well in DC,but he is just ok in ATP,so I think Kiwi has more chance to win. :)

Jonas could be hard but I think Nicolas can beat him. It all depends on his ankle. If he is healthy, he should be fine. Murray doesn't bother me. I think he is more hype than anything.

From what I have seen of him sitting in the stands during the AO, I like him a lot and like how excited he is during Kiwi's matches. But apart from this, I don't know him any closer. I just know that he was also a bit "wild" on court during his active times ;)

Poor Kiwi ... I hope he gets well soon so he can play for us. Guess he just isn't used to this wacky Midwest weather we've been having this year. This is the most terrible time of year to have a tourney in Tennessee. :awww:

It's also published on his homepage: he is not playing: that's also okay, better rest for a few more days and be 100% okay for the next tournament. I didn't expect much anyway from this tournament after his illness, that was not a good sign from the beginning.

After this late withdrawal, I hope they have a lucky loser to replace him in the draw so that somebody else gets a chance...
