yes, that's right... Kiwi lost to Ascione 4-6 2-6
I hope he can win it, but Ascione remains of course dangerous although he didn't win that much in the past, but the same is true for Kiwi as well
I'll be content with one win and making the life hard for Federer would be enough then. More is not possible, I think he will meet Federer and everything but a clear (straight set loss) would be a BIG surprise.
Good luck, Kiwi
I hope the wrist is okay!
