KarstenBraasch will be the first to offer a congratulatory cake in the result thread tomorrow, I'm sure.

He doesn't have too many fans here but personally I'll be happy to see him back in the top ten. And to think, I went to uni with a guy who beat Nicolas back in '95 or '96.

Llodra. Nice match-up, after facing Mirnyi in the first round.

Dirk Dier, Christian Ruud, or the one and only Juan Albert Viloca?

There's a guy who beat him the year before, in 94, who hails from these fair island shores but I'm assuming you got the year right... ;)

Lol. His name was Venki Sundaram. He never made it as a pro. I did go up to the Nationals in '96 with him though, where he lost his first match in the doubles :lol: Still, I got to watch the matches alongside the players; Henman was actually there that year. Anyway, my friend decided to stick with medicine in the end.

Don't jinx him? :( :p

mr burns, but is really true? Because upon my calculations one win would not be enough... or will Hewitt lose points this week? Hewitt is currently at 1595 and I suppose him to stay at this number, therefore one win for Kiefer (3rd round gives 75 points, right?) would not be enough.

Yeah I dont think that another win will be enough. And he also needs some others to lose I think.
I just hope that PHM beats Coria tomorrow coz if Kiefer manages to defeat Llodra, I dont think he'll be able to beat Coria on clay. Coria should be more consistent on that surface than PHM.

One win gives Kiefer 1,590 points. Hewitt currently has 1,580. I fail to see how Kiefer doesn't pass him up in that situation.

But the problem is that Hewitt currently has 1595 points, right? Or where's the mistake hidden?

I was going by Judio's thread. I always assume he's right. I'm sure he knows something that dropped that I'm not sure about.
