MIAMI Masters Series
 
(4)Coria bye
Hernych - (q)
Dupuis - Hanecu
(31)Dent bye
(22)Kiefer bye
Mayer - (q)
Philippoussis - (q)
(15)Gonzalez bye

Once again, he should have no problem to win his 2nd round match but the following matches will be tough. :o

Mayer is currently in horrible form :rolleyes:
But even he could find some time the way out of his slump, I wish him that, but I hope it's not against Kiwi...

And look who could be again waiting in the QF... Coria... that's not good for Kiwi, same shit like last year.

But first, he has to battle through Gonzalez who can be very tough if he's on fire.

I'm more concerned with Gonzalez than Coria. I saw too many times last summer that Nicolas would try and match power of Andy (who reminds of Fernando on his groundstrokes) and try and have a slug fest on the baseline. When Nicolas does that he tends to hit many errors and go for winners when he shouldn't. He needs to be patient and let Fernando make the errors.

Coria will be tough but his serve isn't what it used to be since his shoulder surgery and Nicolas has been returning really well lately (at least according to IW stats) :) But he needs to beat Mayer first :D

Not a bad draw for Kiwi ;)

Hope he will go further in the draw again this week in Miami

Good luck, Nico :angel:

I think the chance is bigger that he has to play the qualifier. Mayer had no chance against Phau last week and guys like Phau are there in the qualifying.

No, this pic is really new for me. It looks good, thanks for that! :yeah:
Maybe this pic shows an early Walt Landers practice method ;)

I'm steering clear of scoring threads so hopefully I won't be alone in this thread tomorrow :D.

I have last minute assignments due tomorrow but I will put it a side for Kiwi's match :).

Go Kiwi!! :bounce:

Logged on just in time :)

Neely, I meant alone in this thread. The gamblers is why I am no longer visiting the scoring threads. It's gotten to the point of ridiculous :rolleyes: . The only safe places are the specific threads.

1 ALL, 1st set

He was down 0-40. Saved all 3 BPs. But was still broken...2-3

Tricky_Forehand 03-26-2005 07:13 PM

Re: MIAMI Masters Series
 
3-5, 0-15

Looks like his serve % isn't great and he's not winning much points off it when it goes in either. If it's windy out there it's probably not me. I'm sure there are people who know more than me in the scoring thread but I'm not going to sift through all the crap to find out.

C'mon Kiwi!!! 4-5. Needs to break back!!!

Lost 1st set, 4-6.

Would be nice to have some company in here :)
