Kiwi on tour in USA!!! (next stop: Cincy)
 
First stop LAS VEGAS

(1) Fernando Gonzalez v Dudi Sela
Sergio Roitman v Evgeny Korolev
Qualifier v (WC) John Isner
Qualifier v (6) Michael Llodra

(3) Marcos Baghdatis v Vince Spadea
(WC) Robby Ginepri v Xavier Malisse
Nicolas Massu v Ernests Gulbis
Qualifier v (7) Robin Soderling

(5) Potito Starace v Carlos Berlocq
Qualifier v Jurgen Melzer
Victor Hanescu v Qualifier
Thomas Johansson v (4)Guillermo Canas

(8) Nicolas Kiefer v Benjamin Becker
Sam Querrey v Sebastien Grosjean
Julien Benneteau v Jonas Bjorkman
(WC) Marat Safin v (2) Lleyton Hewitt

He should win against Becker... and I am sure Grosjean or Querrey is possible, too... Hewitt or Safin?? Why not... I am curious to see if this 5 week practice helped to improve again!!

But Safin-Hewitt first round in a draw like that :haha:

First round looks easy. But considering that most of the best players are in Dubai this week , this is really a hard draw.

Yeah, I hope that Becker won't cause another upset, after having defeated Haas.

Grosjean, Querrey and both former #1's are all tough opponents, though I expect Hewitt to win against Safin.

So other than winning the first match, I don't expect anything.

I hope the tennis channel indulges us with some Kiwi action.

Not on Monday. He'll play his match not before 12 pm on Stadium 2.

But considering the other matches, it's not that surprising.
Good luck, Kiefer.

It's nice to see him back can't wait for pics of him during the first round. Hopefully he'll play well. Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Becker told on his website that he feels tired and would have withdrawn from Las Vegas but the ATP Rules say he has to play. Sounds good for kiwi

Sorry to hear that, but it's not like he was the favorite to win, anyways. Maybe he'll retire after losing a couple of games.

Resultswise, this has been pretty disappointing day so far, so I hope that Kiwi saves it.

It's really uncertain for me what to think of this match because Kiwi didn't play for such a long time.

I hope for a good start :yeah:

Re: Kiwi on tour in USA!!!
 
Damn, did he borrow Coria's serve for this match? :shrug:

At least the last two service games were okay. Maybe another weak baseliner (Querrey) is waiting now, but I think Grosjean will win tonight.

Re: Kiwi on tour in USA!!!
 
Yeah, too many rebreaks for Benni, but at least Kiwi always managed to break again and also saved a couple of bp's.

Anyways, 6:4, 6:3. :yeah: Thanks for saving the day. :)

Good that he at least won this the first round :)

Next one will be harder, Grosjean should be harder to beat than Querrey.
