Default 1001 reasons why we all love Kiwi...

Alright, they have this thread in a lot of other forums and, for it's quite fun, I thought why not having one here as well...

I'll start:

1. ... for supporting the German DC team in Slovakia though he couldn't play
2. ... for crying after the doubles final in Athens
3. ... for playing such fantastic tennis at the USO 04
4. ... for looking so cute with shorter hair

There're plenty more reasons that I could list, but I'm sure you'll be happy to post as well...

Respect....

I know I mentioned this the other day in one of the other threads….
I’ve so much respect for Kiwi. Unlike some players doesn’t adopt a clinical relationship towards his fans. He treats them as equals and is constantly keeping them informed.
I’m not saying that ‘all’ players aren’t bothered, I guess they are busy, but kiwi makes that extra effort and has gained so much respect because of it.

damn, 1001 reasons are a lot for Kiwi... not sure if we ever come close to this number due to our limited fan potential as Kiwi is no Roddick, Federer, Coria etc...

but nevertheless, I'll start with the following points


5. ... for having played doubles with Rainer (hopefully more to come in future!)
6. ... for having had a cool Adidas cap
7. ... for having such a cool playing style
8. ... for pumping his fist when he wins important points

18. for qualifying and being in SF of year end championship in 2000 (I think?)
19. for doing so well in Asian tournaments (because I am Asian )
20. for playing tennis in a smart & "enjoyable to watch" way
21. for having such a huge serve

24. For his boyish enthusiasm when he is asked about his favourite football team, Hannover 96. You can tell he's a true fan, it's quite endearing
