Na, weil es viele bessere Spieler gibt... Vielleicht auch Jutta Adler!

Oh I know this... but it still makes me sad.

Re: MIAMI Masters Series

Apparently Kiwi didnt even try at the match. He was just kinda there... And Mayer was playing well, but if Kiwi had been playing his own game he should have easily beat Mayer. I don't even know what to say anymore... I'm at a loss for words. Not just about this loss, but just at his mental state. He just seems to give up before the matches have even begun....

Re: MIAMI Masters Series

Bad loss for Kiwi. I wonder if Mayer just outplayed him or if Nicolas was not having a good day. I'm glad I didn't go to Miami this year like I usually do to see this. I would have been disappointed. I hope he plays well in Cincy so I can see him play well there

Well if he gets any points during the clay season it will be a bonus since last year he didn't do so well. I was hoping for a good Miami result so he might possibly be seeded in these master clay events but I doubt that will happen now

If he loses on the Monday in Monte Carlo, he will have another 3 weeks off. I already see that coming.

I don't think he can handle more tournaments on a mental level. He'll burn out. Besides, I'm sure he expected to do better in Miami and then he would've only had one week off and not two.

Tooooooooo long
That's the problem. He really has a tournament schedule like a top ten player and doesn't see that he has to play more tournaments.

Re: MIAMI Masters Series

Well, Kiwi did it last year when he made the Finals of Memphis & Scottsdale. Some people were wondering where his form came from

I hope so, I guess he will never be a real force on clay, he never was in his whole career so far, but he really doesn't have to lose anything on clay. He got only a few wins in 2004.

But still, IMO he has underachieved last season on clay. He faced very difficult opponents (Youzhny, Coria, Volandri, Federer) and I think he is a much better play on clay than his record is representing. He just doesn't have to face a total claycourt specialist every time and I think a 4th round in a clay Masters would be well within his reach.

Exactly, not that Mayer is a bad player, he is not, he is quite the very opposite when his game is on and if that result happened last season during May to August, I wouldn't have been that much surprised.

The surprising thing here is not so much that Mayer won, but that he came out of NOWHERE based on his current results when he could do nothing at all for a long time. He was really horrible the weeks before (also due to some injury problems he brought into the new season) and hardly could get any win!

whatever, bad day for Kiefer, superb play by Mayer...

Re: MIAMI Masters Series

Ouch...so he actually could have used the extra points. He's moving on to clay which has not always been good to him.

Personally, I'm loving it because clay is my favorite surface . Hopefully Kiwi will improve this year.

exactly, concerning the Masters results they will balance out! However, he has lost the points because of not getting equal results for defending his Scottsdale and Memphis points earlier in the season
