Thanks for the photo, simpleternity :)

They look perfect each other :) and yes, she is pretty :hearts: Wish them all the best :) Is she a model or famous person in Germany? Or just an ordinary lady?

According to his website, she's a student (of law, I think). She's not famous at all, keeps well out of the spotlight. I don't think she even goes to his matches

yeah, Kiwi's girlfriend is completely different to Coria's or Tim's wife or Andy's girlfriends who are always shown in the matches. I also think that she doesn't go to his matches, maybe only a few exceptions when Nicolas is playing at home in Germany.

It's already a very long relationship, too. I think over 7 years already. And in the past I've also heard some time ago that she already had her state exam, so maybe she isn't a student anymore now and already working as a lawyer or something else according to her education. But when studying law you have to make two state exams, so it could have been as well just her first one.

I think she was often at his matches 6, 7 years ago. I remember that she was often shown on TV, especially the whole weeks in Halle. And I think she was also in Doha or Dubai, when they had this little car accident. But now I haven't seen her since at least 5 years, also in Halle, where I was at the final against Federer and couldn't see her in Kiefers box, allthough his parents were there.

Hannover lost 0-1

Kiwi screamed a loud NOOOO when they scored :shout:

He was wearing a 96-scarf and said that one of his dreams would be to play one match for Hannover. Then he wants to make an assist to a goal, make party with the fans and get substituted after that :lol:

I didnt listen all the time, so I cant tell you any interesting facts :o ;)

Kiwi screamed a loud NOOOO when they scored :shout:
damn, how brutal for him :sad: I'm sure he at least would have wished a draw or a win (what was very well possible because Hannover had great chances as well), but it wasn't allowed for his team :shrug: :rolleyes:

I'm glad that he screamed a NOOOOOO and did not thump the table with his injured right hand to cause any damage... damn, that would have been even worse :p ;)

29.09.2004 : Nur das Ergebnis störte...
Es hat einen riesigen Spaß gemacht, als ich gestern Co-Kommentator für Premiere beim Bundesligaspiel meiner 96er gegen Bielefeld war. Wenn da nicht das Ergebnis gewesen wäre... Jedenfalls möchte ich mich bei Reporter Matthias Stach ganz herzlich bedanken, der die Idee hatte und mich als "Chef" gut führte. Auch die gesamte Premiere-Crew hat gut mitgespielt.

Euer Reporter Kiwi

I was only bothered by the result...
It was big fun when I was yesterday co-commentator for Premiere at the Bundesliga game of my 96ers against Bielefeld. If there only wasn't the result at the end... In any case, I would like to thank Matthias Stach who had the idea [inviting Kiwi to his side as a co-commentator] and who guided me very well. Also thanks to the whole crew of Premiere.

Bad news, Kiwi fans: I read on another site that he's going to sit out the rest of the season :sad: . He doesn't want to rush the wrist injury, so is finishing off the season early. Damn, what a bad blow when things were going so well :mad:

Aus Schaden wird man bekanntlich klug und Tennisprofi Nicolas Kiefer möchte nach einer Verletzung nicht noch einmal überstürzt auf den Court zurückkehren. Deswegen spielt der Niedersachse möglicherweise erst 2005 wieder Turniere. "Ich habe schlechte Erfahrungen damit, nach einer Verletzung zu früh wieder anzufangen", sagte der 27-Jährige, der am Donnerstag im Rahmen einer Pressekonferenz in Halle/Westfalen seine Teilnahme an dem dortigen Rasenturnier im Juni 2005 bestätigte.
An old saying is saying that you become more clever of demage that happened in the past and Nicolas Kiefer doesn't want to make a too rushed return to the courts after an injury once again. That's why he possibly will play tournaments not until 2005. "I have made bad experiences to pick up playing after an injury too early", the 27year-old said in a press conference in Halle where he confirmed his participation for the grass tournament there in June 2005.

The the article mentions his injury and the thing about the ice chamber and what he has to do for healing.

"Es ist echt frustrierend, weil ich mir gute Chancen ausgerechnet hatte, mich noch für das Masters in Houston zu qualifizieren", meinte der Niedersachse, der bei seiner Rückkehr auf die Tour nichts übereilen will: "Da lasse ich es lieber ruhig angehen und bin dann im Januar in Australien topfit."
"It's frustrating because I even would have seen chances to qualify for the Masters Cup in Houston"... "I will take it easy/relaxed and then I'm back top-fit for Australia in January".



all in one, the article is nothing special and just tells things we already knew before or at latest since today.

Thank you :kiss: I tried translating just the quotes cuz that was my biggest concern cuz everyone said what was going on, but the translater -- i dunno -- it was a more different language to me than German is.... lol...... Thanks hun :)

Neely
10-01-2004, 02:25 AM
no problem, you're welcome!... I believe you that the translator most likely returned you crap that you didn't understand very well, because some parts are strange to translate that you have to say differently in English... and I'm not sure if it did it right (BTW, do you say 'more clever' or 'cleverer'?), but I hope you should at least understand it better now. :yeah:


Especially his last quote sounds pretty convincing that he most likely won't return this year. So I guess he will stick to that. But also it doesn't sound like that last final word about this case.

And Fee said it correctly already that he should be better out for the rest of this season, but then be able to play the whole year 2005 injury free and being able to do big things :angel: :clap2:

knight_ley
10-01-2004, 03:47 AM
oh i agree 100%......... i'm gonna miss seeing him (well, online of course... lol) and cheering for him, but i dont want him to rush back. he'll kick ass in 2005 :) i know it :) i'd rather not have him for a few months than to have him just hurt himself agian -- possibly worse -- by rushing back.

and you say "more clever" :) :)

10-04-2004, 02:38 AM
hahahhaha! well why should all his German girls get to see him almost daily and we have to wait till January?! That is not fair. I think those of us who love Kief most here in the States should get new pix daily simply because we are so outnumbered here. Most people here haven't evne heard of him :'( I think we should all get a new pic everyday in our email box......... lol........ :)

10-04-2004, 02:57 AM
OMG I DID TOO! I didnt even know I signed up for a newsletter on Fed's site and I opened up my email and I was like *omgfangirlsquee* "Roger wrote me a letter!" It was madd long too! hahahahhaa!!!! See but I like how Kief updates his site like a journal a lot, you know? Roger just does that thing once every few months where he'll answer like 90 questions people leave him, which is awesome too. I dont know. I was Nicolas to email us a picture every day, write us emails -- long ones, keep updating his own site, and send us christmas cards. Is that too much to ask? lol....

knight_ley
10-04-2004, 05:09 AM
that is something we must take into consideration.... perhaps it wouldnt have a picture in the card. i think if it were JUST a card we may be able to survive, maybe just a slight coma. and if that would still put an end to us, our families i'm sure would let him know what happened, but then he'd feel bad for killing people by being so kind to us........ *siiiiiiiigh*

knight_ley
10-04-2004, 05:36 AM

Hey people,while you continue dreaming about Nicolas sending us cards,pics,etc (don,t I wish!)..why don,t WE all do something..like send HIM a card!! That could be very cool you know just to show that we care even if he is not playing right now.And yes not only in the states there are few people who know him,here in canada,it's not..nobody!! I was watching him practice in toronto and everyone was like..who is that? idiots! lol .The thing is we know the city where he lives but not his address but I heard that the place where he lives is NOT big so it might get there without the name of the street..lol.Is there a way to send him a card??? :eek:

10-04-2004, 09:17 PM
I was watching him practice in toronto and everyone was like..who is that? idiots! lol
lol :rolls: that's really bad and of course not understandable for us :angel:
but well, I think that Kiwi doesn't get that much media coverage in the US or Canada or in South America. Probably people in Canada would have recognized some famous Canadian hockey players better than Kiwi :shrug: ;)
BTW, when I was at the ATP tournament in Munich this week, it was virtually the same. Of course there have been many people who know tennis quite well, but there were also a lot of people who don't know much about tennis, also a big part of older people and many of them also wondered "who is that?" when they saw Vince Spadea, Martin Verkerk or Paradorn Srichaphan etc. So I think it's most likely everywhere the same, at least up so some amount ;)

The thing is we know the city where he lives but not his address but I heard that the place where he lives is NOT big so it might get there without the name of the street..lol.Is there a way to send him a card??? :eek:
Hmm, I understand... but I also don't know his home address and even I knew I would not publicly publish it here. Maybe we can reach him through his autograph address that somebody forwards it to him or through an inquiry to the company (http://www.nicolaskiefer.de/main.php?page=impressum) that is hosting his website... :shrug:
no idea what's the best way if you would like to send him something, but it would be great :yeah:

10-04-2004, 09:39 PM
Thanks Neely for the infos.I am not sure enough to send it to this address.I,ll just wait I guess and did what I did this summer,give it to him myself! Well not exactly,I gave it to the front desk at the hotel and he came to get it and the next day he actually came over to see me and thanked me,he seemed all happy about a stuff animal..and you should of seen the card...with a duck on the cover!!lol :eek: I guess,he doesn't have lots of fans giving him stuff ,well like I said most people don,t know him here or in the USA,well some people don,t even know who Agassi is so!!!! A guy actually said in toronto to another one..this is Bjorkman and I almost screamed at him..NO!! lol :( still it is pretty sad right now.no news,no pics..NOTHING!! I am bored and sad,can't wait till next year.And no Neely even if you know his address don,t post it here,the guy has a personal life and it is personal and private so lets keep it that way. :wavey:

A new update on Kiwi's page! :D

05.10.2004 : Die Hoffnung lebt!
Wer hat denn nach dem 0:1 gegen Bielefeld auf einen Auswärtssieg in Rostock gewettet? Ich spreche von meinen 96ern und nehme sie als Beweis dafür, dass man nie negativ denken sollte. Auch ich schaue in meiner aktuellen Situation positiv in die Zukunft. Die Pause hat auch etwas Gutes. Und ich hoffe, dass sie bald zu Ende geht.

Letzte Woche war ich in Halle zu einer Pressekonferenz. Das Turnier, mein "Heimturnier", liegt zwar noch in weiter Ferne. Aber schon heute kann ich mich festlegen, bei den Gerry Weber Open zu starten. Diese Möglichkeit bietet mir meine Ranglisten-Position. Meine persönliche Bereitschaft dazu braucht nicht erwähnt zu werden!

Abgesagt habe ich nun meine Starts in Tokio und Moskau. Weiter schaue ich noch nicht. Auch wenn es in manchen Medien anders herüberkam: ich will durchaus noch 2004 auf den Platz zurückkehren. Ein oder zwei europäische Turniere sind für dieses Jahr noch mein Ziel. Dafür arbeite ich täglich!

Euer KIWI
The hope is alive:
Who would have bet after the 0-1 loss against Bielefeld on an away win at Rostock? I'm speaking of my 96ers and I'm taking them as a proof that you never should think negatively. Also I am looking to a positive future in my actual situation. The current break also has something good. And I hope hope that it ends soon.

Last week, I was at Halle for a press conference. The tournament, my "home tournament", is still far away, but I can already confirm my participation for the next year. My ranking allows that. And my personal willingness doens't need to be mentioned!

I have withdrawn from Tokyo and Moscow. I don't look any further than that yet. Despite it came over differently in the media: but I will try to be back on the courts in 2004. One or two European tournaments are my goal for this year. I'm working daily on that!

Yours KIWI

___________________________________

wow, that's really a little surprise now that he still wants to play in 2004. It really came over A LOT differently in the media and it looked as if there was almost no hope to see him back in 2004. But good to know from him now what it was right and that he would like to play a bit in 2004 :) :clap2:

Jogy
10-05-2004, 12:43 PM
yes, that is raelly a positive surprise now.
When the media wrote that Kiefer is unlikely back in 2004 and Kiwi's own words that he wants to take time for his comeback it was taken as that there is nearly no chance to see him back in 2004.

well done that he told us on his homepage. I hope he can make his goal come true that he is playing 1 or 2 tournaments this year. :yeah:

eeep is there anyone who can translate what was just posted on his site?! i put in thru a translator but i dont really get it still... lol... all i can understand is that kief got the cast taken off today............... thank you!

30 Tage nach der Verletzung: die Schiene ist ab!
30 Tage sind seit jenem verhängnisvollen 6. September vergangen, als Nicolas Kiefer bei den US Open gegen Tim henman wegen einer Handverletzung aufgeben mußte. Nun ist Land in Sicht, oder wie es Kiwi in einer ersten Stellungnahme formulierte: "Die Schiene ist ab - ein riesen Erfolg."

Der behandelnde Arzt, Dr. Dirk Jung, meinte nach einer eingehenden Untersuchung in Berlin: "Das Kontroll-MRT des rechten Handgelenks zeigt wieder einen Normalbefund. Die Ruhigstellung wird heute beendet und das Kraftaufbautraining im Rahmen der Physiotherapie in den nächsten Wochen im Vordergrund stehen."

Wie lange die Turnierpause noch andauern wird, kann man in diesem Moment noch nicht sagen. Kiwi wird gleich morgen mit einer umfangreicheren Reha "loslegen", aber weiterhin auch in die Eiskammer gehen: "Das ist gut für die Durchblutung. Zudem greift Kälte verletzte Stellen an und beschleunigt damit den Heilungsprozeß."

10-06-2004, 07:04 PM
Hi Simpleternity :wavey:

You are correct with your assumption: Kiwi's cast was taken off today and he can begin with weight training as part of the physiotherapy tomorrow. It is still unclear when he can play tennis again, though. He'll still be making trips to the "deep freezer" again, as this helps with the blood circulation and speeds up the rate of recovery.

BTW, here's a pic I found on www.dtb-tennis.de (German tennis fed. HP) :)

Nun ist es soweit: der Computer der ATP führt Nicolas Kiefer seit heute auch im "Entry Ranking" als deutsche Nr.1. Zwar hat sich aufgrund der Verletzungspause bei Kiwi nichts verändert, doch rutschte Rainer Schüttler hinter ihn. In der Kategorie "Champions Race", welche für das ATP Finale am Jahresende entscheidend ist, hat Kiwi schon länger die nationale Führung übernommen.

Well I've been surfing the net for Kiwi stuff..I miss him! :sad: And I just read a VERy interesting article.picture this,4 y ears ago,in south beach,dEAR Anna K (yes the one who went after Lapentii,was married to a hockey player and engaged to another one,was caught making out with Philippoussis and now is dating Enrique Englesias)..so anyway Miss no men can say no to arrived in front of nicolas and here is the article :"Then she runs out. Directly to Nicolas Kiefer! She pulls him on her side, talks a few minutes with him. Anna goes, cuddles herself in a white stretch-limousine.

Kiefer gets handed a handy: "It’s Anna!" What does she want? Nicolas: "She wanted me to come to her into the limousine. But I’m happy with my girl-friend Inga."Steadfast Kieder – Anna has bit out her teeth on Kiwi... "

I love him even more now! :worship:

14.10.2004 : Madrid-Absage
Seine Teilnahme am ATP-Turnier in Madrid, das am kommenden Montag beginnt, mußte Nicolas Kiefer gestern absagen. Kiwi kann weiterhin nur Reha-Training bestreiten. Auch eine Einladung des Hannoveraner Unternehmens TUI, als Gast dem Mallorca-Marathon (24.10.) beizuwohnen, konnte Kiwi nicht annehmen.

Kiwi has officially withdrawn from Madrid TMS now.
He can still only do physiotherapy training.
He also had to refuse an invitation of the Hannover enterprise TUI to be a guest at the Mallorca marathon at 24th October.

Neues Traumdoppel Kiefer/Lienen
Was Kiefer/Schüttler im Olympischen Finale versagt blieb, gelang dem Doppel Kiefer/Lienen nun perfekt: auf dem Trainingsgelände von Fußball-Bundesligist Hannover 96 hatten sich regionale Medienvertreter und ein 96-Funktionsteam getroffen, um auf einem Kleinfeld die verbliebenen Fußballkünste zu messen. 96 verstärkte sich mit Nicolas Kiefer, der vor allem läuferisch glänzte und das Ganze als willkommene Abwechslung seines alltäglichen Konditionstrainings betrachtete. Da Kiwi aber auch mit der Lederpille umzugehen weiß, gewannen die 96er mit 6:5, wobei 96-Trainer Ewald Lienen und Nicolas Kiefer je drei Mal trafen und auf dem Platz blind harmonierten. Kiwi im übrigen verwandelte den Matchball. Dies als entscheidender Unterschied zu Athen!

I tried translating it but I am utterly confused....... Are they talking about tennis or soccer? lol....... I feel like such a dumbass sometimes............. :(

Roughly translated, a Hannover 96 player selection had a training match with representatives of the local media, and Kiwi joined up with the Hannover guys. Kiwi scored 3 goals, as did the Hannover trainer, and Hannover won 6-5 in the end, Kiwi scoring the winning goal.
Hey, maybe he has a new career beckoning ;)

I seriously doubt that Nicolas will be in Houston next spring. I go to that tournament every year and he has only been there once and lost first rnd. With his much improved ranking I figure he would play at a a tournament with a better field. Now Nicolas if you are reading this ;) , I would very much like you to come to Houston being so close.

Being clay and his worst surface, to me it would make sense to play a weaker field and get lots of points. No use playing the dirtballers unless you really have too! Plus, the clay is the exact clay from RG.

When I saw Nic in San Jose last year and told him how surprised I was to see him, he said that he couldn't get into Milano due to his low ranking at the entry deadline, so he had to do the American swing instead of the European swing. Next year's calendar after the AO gives players the choice of Delray-San Jose-Memphis-Scottsdale in the US or Milano-Marseille-Rotterdam-(Dubai?) in Europe (or a mix of the two). The American swing will probably be weaker, the European swing will probably be more competitive (and might possibly offer more money and points, but I am too lazy to look right now). If he does the European swing, he stays closer to home and his own time zone as well. 'Points is points' and you can earn them at any tournament as long as you are playing the week those points come off. It will be up to him (and his coach) to decide which tournaments he wants to play and for what reasons (including the possibility of guaranteed fees), but I will not be surprised if he decides to stay in Europe until Indian Wells.

Very true Fee. The only thing that might take him through the US indoor season is he knows for some reason he does well in the US. Also, sometimes players feel obligated/desire to play tournaments where they have done well. Andy Rodddick keeps playing the very weak Houston tournament because that is where he won at the very beginning of his career. Scottsdale and Memphis he did well there and jump started his comeback. Players are superstitious and he might think if he doesn't show there he will do bad for the remainder of the season.

Well we will have to wait and see :D

that would have been a nice chance for Kiwi as well, he could have done a lot of demage as a seed, a bye in the first round, not immediately facing the other biggest guns in the first rounds of the tournament, many other good players withdrew

More importantly, Kiwi always liked to play indoor :tears:

It's sad for us that we see drawsheets without his name, but he must take his time and I hope that everythings is good again and that he is able to play without injuries for a longggggg time after that.

Well the good thing is that we will be home from Europe in May, so I will be home for the summer tournaments. Originally we were going to move over to England in March, but now we're just going over for 6 weeks to get some stuff planted, and then coming back to the States for a few months and then moving over there for good this time next year. I go up to the Open a lot, so I'm definately gonna go up there next year to see him, and to Long Island, since I'm only 2 hours away from NYC.... I'm gonna give it all I can cuz if I don't meet him this summer, I never will. But I'm definately gonna make sure I at least see him play. I have no idea how to go about meeting him so I don't know if that would happen... But yea... I've pretty much come to terms with the fact that I"ll probably never meet him, since I always seem to miss him by just a bit. It's fustrating but yea....... It just sucks cuz he's my favorite person on Earth... I like him more than anyone else in any other like "celebrity" type form.

i think i'll have control of myself..... the only thing i can compare this too is when I met Elijah Wood. cuz i have loved Elijah from the time I was 10, and I finally met him 2 years ago, so it was almost a 10 year love and trying to see him but never did... My mom used to take me to premieres and stuff and I never even SAW him... so unlucky... And theN i finally did when he was promoting "The Two Towers" and he came out of his car and I seriously started walkign away from him czu I couldnt even deal wiht the fact that he was right there... and one of my friends stopped him and talked to him and told him about me while another one came after me and made me come back to him....... I was completely calm but like I couldn't speak and I couldnt like look @ him in the face. I did once, and he smiled and I was like "no....." lol... All I said to him was "Hi" and "no" lmfao....... But he was a total sweetie and talked my ear off... Then after he went inside to tape Regis & Kelly, I jsut like curled up in a ball on the sidewalk and like thought I was going to hyperventale / cry / die...... But i didnt do any of it you konw? I just kinda shut down for 20 minutes...

Kiefer is Elijah level. I've loved him for so many years, but haven't ever seen him, let alone meet him. So I'd probably do the same thing. Just like not talk. I dunno... You never know till it happens..... Cuz there have been some people I've met where I thought I'd be shy, but just like talked their faces off like they were my friends so..... ???

Here's a link to a great interview with Kiwi. Unfortunately it's all in German :awww: . I'll try to summarise it later (or Neely will :D ) because it's too long to translate. Basically he's talking about the Olympic final (he and Rainer basically trashed all their rackets after leaving the court :eek: ) and how much he loves being part of the team now for the Davis Cup. Another ambition for him is to play (even for a little while as a substitute) for Hannover 96. That would be fun to see, bet he's a good footballer as well!

lol, don't worry, it would be almost impossible that Kiwi ended his tennis career to play professionally football for a club like Hannover. Kiwi would be much too bad to compete at this level and IMO working on a tennis career for so many years and then changing the sport to football doesn't work.

In that passage, Kiwi was only talking about that he would love to play just a few minutes in one game among all the pros in a real German league game because it would make him sooooooo happy.
But this didn't mean he wants to end his tennis career because of football ;)

Space cadet,I've seen Jacques Villeneuve like 100 times.I go to his club a lot and he is always there.He is a cool guy,very nice and vERY smart too.I like his club,plus once I saw him at 7am in front of my coffeeshop in little italy.Pryss,your sister goes to Mc Gill,I teach at the university of montreal and I am transferring to mc Gill in january..I teach med anthropology.Man,it would be weird if she would be in my class..lol.YES WE speak FRENCH here but we speak english too,especially downtown.It is rare that you,ll find people who don't speak english but of course,we speak french first.yes lets make Nicolas crazy in montreal.lol :eek: Pryss didn,t you go to the Masters in toronto this summer?


That's so cool, kiwiteami! I've visited the town where JV sometimes lives in Switzerland, it's a gorgeous location, not far from Lake Geneva in the Alps. Didn't see him about, though ;) Now if only the Masters could be moved so it's on the same week as the race, I'd be there! Hey, I could practise my German too if I were to bump into Kiwi or Rainer ;)
Is Medical Anthropology like what Kathy Reichs bases her novels on? I'm sure you know her books, partly set in Montreal, crime thrillers, quite good.

yes, he said that he thinks playing one or two tournaments for the rest of the whole year could be possible and that he works on that, but I cannot say if this is still true and if this is still within reach.

But maybe it becomes true :yeah:

schau dich einfach ein wenig um bei Yahoo oder GettyImages oder www.tennis.info oder irgendwelche sonstigen Seiten wo es die Bilder gibt, die du suchst. Oder natürlich auch hier im Kiefer Forum bei unseren Pics Threads. Da wurden ja auch schon jede Menge Bilder gepostet. Ich bin mir sicher, dass du dann genug Vorschläge für deinen Avatar kriegst. Natürlich musst das auserwählte Bild dann unter Umständen auch bearbeiten, ausschneiden etc. um es auf die richtigen Größe zu bekommen.

Speichere dann einfach auf deine Festplatte und dann uploaden so wie ich es dir im vorigen Posting beschrieben habe.
Natürlich funktioniert es auch wenn du eine geeignete URL eingibst und dann auf OK und es sollte auch schon funktionieren.

I am sure he is practising every day, I think with weights, running practises and physiotherapy. He just can't afford to be lazy in his situation when his arm is not strong enough yet. I hope that he can be fully fit when the new season is starting. This year he needed some time until he could get his first wins, next year it could be the same because he was out for a long time then and you first have to learn playing competetive matches again and IMO he could need two tournaments before the Australian Open to get some practise on Tour level.

Kiwi's update from yesterday!

27.10.2004 : Ehrenbürger
Seit gestern darf ich mich Ehrenbürger der Stadt Dassel nennen. Im Rahmen einer Feierstunde im Ratskeller wurde mir vom Bürgermeister die Urkunde überreicht, zudem eine Silbermedaille, die mich natürlich sofort wieder an Athen erinnerte. Für die dort errungenen Erfolge wurde ich ja auch geehrt. Zudem durfte ich mich in das Goldene Buch der Stadt eintragen.

Ja, das ist schon etwas Besonderes. Immerhin habe ich in Sievershausen, einem Stadtteil von Dassel, meine Kindheit verbracht und bin dort zur Schule gegangen. Noch heute habe ich einen besonderen Bezug zur Stadt, da meine Eltern dort wohnen. Es war ein netter Empfang für mich, den ersten Medaillengewinner der Region.

Heute hatte ich dann im OSP Hannover eine leistungsdiagnostische Untersuchung, deren Ergebnisse ich morgen erfahre. Aber ich habe das Gefühl, dass alles okay ist.
Honorary citizen:
Since yesterday I'm honorary citizen of the town Dassel. In the context of a ceremony at the Ratskeller I got the certificate and a silver medal, what of course immediately reminded me of Athens. For my success there I was also honored. And I was allowed to sign the Golden Book of the town.

Yes, that's indeed something special. I spent my childhood and attended school in Sievershausen, a part of Dassel. Today I still have a special relation to this town because my parents live there. It was a very nice reception for me, I'm the first Olympic medal winner of this region.

Today I had a diagnostic examination in Hannover which results I will get to know tomorrow. But I have the feeling that everything is okay.

28.10.2004 : Autogrammstunde in Osnabrück
Im Rahmen des "Pre Opening" im VW Zentrum Osnabrück wird Nicolas Kiefer am kommenden Sonntag von 14 bis 15 Uhr zu einer Autogrammstunde vorbeischauen. Das Autohaus im Blumenhaller Weg 153 (Autobahnabfahrt Osnabrück-Hellern) ist seit Jahren Kiwis Abholadresse seiner jeweils aktuellen Porsche-Modelle.

Autograph session in Osnabrück:
During the "Pre Opening" of the VW Centre in Osnabrück, Nicolas Kiefer will come next Sunday between 14 and 15 o'clock for an autograph session. The car dealer at Blumehaller Weg 153 (Autobahn exit Osnabrück-Hellern) is Kiwi's address where to get his newest Porsche models since years.

yeah, I know. And I also have heard negative things from people who saw him at an autograph session and told me, he is so arrogant and he looks so uninterested doing it.

He doesn,t know everyone.BUT once he starts to know you,like me,well he took HIS towel after his practice and he wrote happy birthday on it in french with the date on my birthday and I got a handshake.All that ok cause he knows me but is he supposed to know every person? No,he does exactly like the other tennis palyers esp when there is a lot of people.Plus there are tennis palyers who basically don,t even bother to sign autographs but he does.He never saw him say NO or I have no time. :)

I'm moving out there with one of my best friends. Her entire family is out there and she wants to move back there and asked me to go with her. Seeing as that is an opportunity that will never come up again, I said I'd go. So I left college ((yes, I had just gotten accepted to NYU -- New York University -- and was gonna transfer there this fall... right now.)) and I'm working all the time now to save up money. We're going over in March or April and staying out there for a month to make sure its what we wanna do... While we're there for that month we're gonna go to some other places around Europe too... Like Spain, Paris, and I am making her go to Germany with me... haha... but yea we'll be living in Sheffield, England and living with her cousin so we don't ahve to worry about rent or anything right away. But yea, if we decide that that IS waht we want, next fall, like this time of year, we're gonna go over there permanately :)


See I haven't heard anything negative about him... Everyone I know that has met him at practices and whatnot has had nothing but teh sweetest things to say about him. Although I've never known anyone to meet him at a signing so maybe he's different. ??

Generally we all know that Kiwi is a good soul ;)
But we all have bad days and I can also understand if he doesn't want to sign autographs sometimes after/before matches because it can be also annoying that people recognize you and always ask you for things.
So I would never judge him by such lone occasions because I know better :yeah:

nicolas Kiefer IS a good guy.Just don,t go see him if you are with too many people and he loves compliments so go into that direction.At first yes,he is shy but once he knows you,after seeing you all the time at his practices,he will say hello.I tRIED not to take too many pics during his practices cause he doesn't seem to like that too much.Screaming at him:hey Nicolas is a BAD thing,I saw many people doing that and he never turn to the person or look at the person he just ignored them.He doesn,t like to be followed.I saw a girl doing that and he gave her a very nasty look,you just do like me ACT like you were just around where he was,he's not stupid but found it funny in my case! :angel: Even if he had a bad match and lost you can still talk to him after cause in private he's not what you see on court.but don,t try to be play smart with him,he's not the type,he is very smart and because of that you can talk basically about everything.Ask him for directions (i did),for restos (I did),he loves that and will go on and on and on..for 10 minutes outside the hotel!! lol..well i think that my job is done here..lol :)

OH NO!!!!!!! I am screwed! I am the biggest smart ass on this planet and he'll think I'm evil if I meet him! Now I'm scared too... Well, its not like I'd be myself anyways if I did meet him. I probably wouldn't be able to speak so I wouldn't have a chance to be an ass. I am a funny smart ass though. I'm the class clown, just my way of going about it is to make a smart comment about stuff. Maaaaaaaaan.... Kief will not like me :sad:

I'll have to pass the info on about the directions... We were saying that if we know what hotel he's at we'll like hang out a little bit away from the door and if we see him come out just like walk down the sidewalk and "run into him" by "accident" lmfao... But now I'm scared to.... Even all my friends are smart asses....... Oh man... Maybe I don't want to meet him... but I do soo bad he's been my fave for liek 5 years now... *siiiigh* If I'm with you in Montreal when I meet him for the first time (like at a practice or something) make sure I don't talk... lol..

lol there you go! you can tell him i speak spanish, cuz I do and I'll just look confused and say things in Spanish... lol...

Yea... I was telling my friends about that last night when I went out and they were like "First of all, no one on this earth hates you cuz you're hysterical and secondly you wont even be able to talk to him when you meet him so don't worry about it..." lol which is true... lol...

Mary,i don,t speak spanish but if you speak a little italian,I'll speak to you in italian and you,ll answer..lol.I know that he doesn,t speak italian cause I asked him..just act confused..lol :rolleyes: And if somehow I can manage to bring him to my coffeeshop like he told me he would ,just come along..lol.

I was wonderring,do they have the german tennis mag?? I saw the aussie one last week and still nothing in it.But what really pisses me off is when I look into all those tennis mags and who do I see?? Anna K ..who hasn,t been playing for over a year! I just don,t get that.Ok they can put Sharapova,fine she is a tennis player,won wimbledon but Anna..what is the point?

and yes I like Colin Farrell,he is a good actor and very very cute.I might like him cause he does look like Nicolas.

Oh and I called to Memphis yesterday,still no answer if Nicolas is going or not but they told me that they shoould know pretty soon.They told me that Andy is going and I said "but him,I don,t care!" lol

hey simpleternity, how did you become a Kiwi fan? Was it from seeing him play on the tv?
I must say I only started to watch him this year and after the great Rainer he would be my second-favourite player. Funny, up to this year he was getting such bad press here in Germany, now he's Mr Popular

04.11.2004 : Empfang und Wiedersehen
Der Empfang von Ministerpräsident Christian Wulff für alle Olympiateilnehmer Niedersachsens wurde für Nicolas Kiefer zu einem ganz besonderen Erlebnis: Plötzlich stand er vor Simone Kues, mit der er in der Paul-Gerhardt-Schule in Dassel im Leistungskurs Chemie gemeinsam die Schulbank gedrückt hatte. Sie aber saß nun im Rollstuhl. "Bei einem Urlaub in Irland ist sie vom Pferd gefallen und seitdem querschnittsgelähmt. Unglaublich, wie locker sie mit der Situation umgeht", so Kiwi. Als Mitglied der Basketball-Nationalmannschaft nahm sie an den Paralympics in Athen teil und belegte Platz 4. Beide unterhielten sich lange über vergangene, aber ebenso aktuelle Zeiten.

Receiving and reunion:
The receiving by the Prime of Niedersachsen Christian Wulff for all Olympic participants turned out to be something special for Nicolas Kiefer. He met Simone Kues there with whom he went to school and they visited the chemistry major course together. But she was in a wheelchair now. "She is paraplegic since she had a riding accident and fell off horse during holidays in Ireland. Unbelievable, how easy she takes this situation", Kiwi said. She participated as a member of the German Paralympic basketball team and made the 4th place. Both talked about former times, but also about actual ones.

Hey guys! Kiwi's site was updated today and they mentioned that he will be on TV in Germany on Thursday... Thought those of you over there might like to know...... Here's what it said in German..

Bloomberg TV - ein Wirtschaftssender. Hier laufen die Börsenkurse und Aktienkurven 24 Stunden rundum. Aber in einem kleinen TV-Fenster wird interessantes Programm ausgestrahlt, zum Beispiel die Sendung "Horizont Sport Business TV", in welcher über aktuelle Themen des Sports gesprochen wird. In dieser Woche ging es um Tennis allgemein und Nicolas Kiefer im Besonderen. Kiwi wurde von Moderator Richard Weiss und Horizont-Sportchef Oliver Zils (links) "in die Zange" genommen. Ausstrahlungstermine: am Donnerstag, 18.11. jeweils um 9.35 Uhr, 13.35 Uhr, 18.35 Uhr, 20.35 Uhr und 0.35 Uhr.

Also, the picture I attached was posted... It's so tiny, but cute none the less :)

Ok Americans, I think I have this right... Now these times are in Eastern Standard Time (from CET to EST is a 6 hour difference), so adjust them if you live outside of that time zone in the US or Canada :)

These times are all on this Thursday, 11/18 :)

exactly!

If the time difference to EST is 6 hours, the 2nd time should be 7.35am

I could confirm the first four times on the Bloomberg site!
http://www.bloomberg.com/media/tv/schedule_germany_thursday.html

but they don't show their program after midnight on their TV schedule so the 12:35 remains unconfirmed somehow and is only based on Kiwi's homepage.

18.11.2004 : Comeback in Thailand
Das Kribbeln beginnt. Heute Abend steige ich ins Flugzeug und ab geht's nach Thailand. Auf Einladung meines Kollegen Paradorn Srichaphan werde ich eine Woche in seiner Heimat verbringen, mit ihm trainieren, mit ihm durchs Land reisen, mit ihm Schaukämpfe bestreiten. Es ist eine Ehre für mich, denn Paradorn ist in Thailand nach dem König der zweit-berühmteste Mann!

Wir wollen die Popularität von Tennis in seiner Heimat steigern. Für mich persönlich aber hat die ganze Geschichte noch einen weiteren, nicht minder uninteressanten Gesichtspunkt: ich werde dort mein Comeback feiern, nachdem ich am 30. August bei den US Open so brutal aus meinem Traum gerissen wurde. Dieser handelte vom Masters, für das ich durchaus auf einem guten Weg war. Meine Handverletzung ist soweit wieder behoben. Nun spielen die Jungs in Houston ohne mich und ich werde mir mit Paradorn ein paar schöne Tage machen, aber auch ernsthaft an meiner Rückkehr auf die Tour arbeiten!

Ich melde mich - Euer KIWI
18.11.2004: Comeback in Thailand
I'm excited. Today evening I will take the plane to Thailand. Thanks to an invitation of Paradorn Srichaphan I will spend a week in his home country, I will practise with him, I will travel with him across the country and I will play exhibions with him. It's a big honor for me because Paradorn is the 2nd most well known person in Thailand behind the King.

We want to try increasing the popularity of tennis in his country. Personally, for me this also has another important background: I will have my comeback there after I got injured during the US Open at August 30th. I even had chances for the Masters Cup to qualify. My hand injury is healed and good so far. Meanwhile the other guys are playing in Houston without me and I will have a few nice days with Paradorn, but I will also try to seriously work on my comeback to the Tour.

I will keep you updated --- yours Kiwi!

Tonight, there was a report about Kiwi on a local TV channel. A camera team was with Kiwi and it showed him in the time after his injury off the court in Hannover, at the soccer stadium, in the "freezer", at his former tennis club etc. Kiwi was really funny!! :yeah: :D

I told my fogging sister to record it on DVD as I don't have a DVD recorder myself. Hopefully she didn't forget :fiery: so when I visit her today I hope she has the disc ready. Then next I have to find out how I can make a video file out of a DVD with my computer. I have heard this works, but never did it so far. I hope I can do it to offer it for you as download you who couldn't see it.

Unfortunately, it was only about 11 minutes long :fiery:
It could have been longer, and, of course the report about some stupid soccer player from over 30 years ago was over half an hour long :fiery: :banghead: :banghead: :mad:

But better than nothing ;) :angel:

In that Bloomberg talk he said that he will play two tournaments for AusOpen preparation, so maybe it will be Adelaide an Sydney..... :confused:

Some time ago, I told you about this update where Kiwi mentioned this girl.

His homepage says that there was an article about it at Wednesday in "Bild", a very famous German tabloid.

http://www.xx-ion.de/admin/bilder_kiefer/Kiefer-Schulfreundin-1.jpg

Now it was already Thursday, Friday coming, and it's too late to buy because I didn't know in advance that there was going to be something written about Kiwi on Wednesday.

Maybe I can ask a few people I know if they had/still have the Wednesday edition.

Would be cool to have a scan of this report, but I'm not sure if I can find somebody.

Of course, it would have been better if the homepage informed us about this article earlier and not the day after when only the new edition is available. But maybe they didn't know it either when this article exactly was planned to be printed.
