he earned 90 points this year, 180 last year so he should only lose 90 points.

anyway i looked back and i have to apoologiz
Sorry, but Kohli will lose just 90 points because 180 - 90 = 90.

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

Here is an article in German, nothing new, but it sums up pretty well what happened:
http://tennismagazin.de/tour_exklusi...class=22&pid=1
The journalist describes the press conference and stresses one more time the change of tone in Philipp's statements, while he's had some truly embarrassing post-match interviews in the past.
This time he was spot on and analyzing very well what he had done wrong. He saw in the 5th set that Verdasco was struggling at one point. Not for a long time, just 5 minutes. But he says he was feeling very tired himself at that point and couldn't use the opportunity. It was doubly painful because he could see there was a chance, but his shots were not hurting Verdasco anymore. The reason in his opinion is that he had been a bit sick in the days before the tournament/the match.
Then follows a detailed match report, the story with Verdasco's foot with the medical time-out in the mdidle of a game. Wilander apparently said in the Eurosport daily summary that it "was too much drama for his liking". Verdasco was looking in terrible pain and then in the 5th he was moving normally again. Maybe the pain killers worked very well. Maybe he had overdone it a bit too.
Too much drama from Verdasco. But not enough drama from Kohli. No fist pumping, nothing. Verdasco was pumping himself up like crazy when he won a point, lamenting after every miss. A lot of antics, but nothing unfair.
Whatever he might say, Kohli should have tried more at the beginning of the 5th set when he saw the chance, even if he was feeling tired. He's lacking the "killer instinct" and the match exposed his main weakness.

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

I don't get at all the first part of the interview either, I assumed he got confused and forgot a negation somewhere? Not sounding arrogant is one thing, but that would be taking it a bit far, especially with his record against Verdasco and Verdasco physically struggling!
The rest of his analysis is OK, poor serve, and he was too passive, only reacting, not dictating.

He says in German articles that he had been sick just before, he was very relieved to make it through the first rounds under these conditions and his legs felt heavy yesterday.

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

i just watched his interview on the official website. It sounded like he had no confidence of winning this match going into it.

I saw his old coach again in yesterday's match. I hope they'll work something out.

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

he's only in action in halle before wimbledon so he cant gain points anywhere either unless he makes it past the semi finals in halle and the 3rd round at wimbledon. He is only defending points so the only way his ranking will go up is if others fall and he defends his points or he does better then last year at this time.

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

anyway i looked back and i have to apologize you guys

he'll lose the 180 dropping him down to 1138

but victor hanescu will lose points too so he'll drop in the rankings, so will petzchner

so he'd only fall to world # 36 behind ivo karlovic

not much better but atleast he's only dropping 1 place instead of 3

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

I never get his ranking anyway. #38 is pretty much like the other Philipp right now, or Benji Becker just a couple of weeks ago, or Andi Beck last year - Kohli is much better than them! I'm not talking about his potential, but his overall results clearly feel better, he *always* goes further than them in Slams and Masters 1000.

They have the video of his interview on the tournament website.

Re: Roland-Garros 2010

i hope he can find some way to put this together
its just so unfortunate he came across verdasco this early, the guy has incredible luck and has been hot lately.

he has 3rd round points to defend in wimbledon so here's hoping he can get everything going again or he may drop out of the top 40.
