He is the favourite to make the final in his half. And that has to be his goal in his favourite tournament. Who else defeated Federer and Sampras on grass? ;)

But please not Petzschner in the first round!

KIEFER/WASKE - Nadal/Lopez

If Kiefer gets Petzschner in the first round, that would be awful and exactly what we wouldn't like, JMG :tape:

Kiwi really can't complain with his draw in Halle, but I have the feeling that Verdasco/Canas could be quite a bitch for him, even on grass.

Hopefully he will make the best out of it! Go Kiwi! :yeah:

Halle seems to be one of Kiwi's best tourney's of the year. I find it ironic that the surface that I like the least (almost despise it) can be Kiwi's best :rolleyes:

I still root for him when I can though :)

Right there with ya :) . Except for the drool factor though :)

I would be excited to see 4 guys who are really good Doubles players as these 4 are though. I think Rafa's a bit mad to play this much but that's only my opinion. :shrug:

Kiefer is playing Zimonjic in the first round tomorrow!

JMG 06-06-2005 05:30 PM

Re: the official HALLE cheering thread!!!!
 
Perfect for me, that he's the 4th match on center court tomorrow. :) He should be able to outplay Zimonjic at least 6-4 6-4 or so. Zimonjic lost his serve (only) twice against Petzschner, but as a doubles player he might play s&v and Kiefer is always returning well against s&v players.

with the exception being Henman :fiery:

I hope the match starts as late as possible because then I would be more guaranteed to see it.

Now I'm the opposite. I love the grass. Wimbeldon is my favorite tournament, although queing in line sucks and watching your fave player lose a 2 set lead in 5 million rain delays in the cold wasn't fun after flying across the pond. It will be awhile until I do that again.

A very close first set comes to an end. Incredibly dominated by good serving performances of both players, almost no return points won. However, there was a little scare as Kiwi served at 4-4 and 30-40 which was the first break point of the match and it was for Zimonjic. Thanksfully he could save it with another ace and later they reached the tiebreak. Zimonjic double faulted once and had another 2nd serve that Kiwi attacked successfully. No problem with his own serve and Kiwi easily raced to a very dominating 6-0 lead in the tiebreak and finally he took it by 7 points to 1.
