I can't believe it. Kiwi led 5-3 in third set, was serving for the match at 5-4 and he lost it. That's so sad.

I was at Newport watching and it was very painful to watch, Kiwi didn't seem to have any fire even when he missed easy shots or when he played great ones. He was neither pumped or pissed off just very uninterested.
He started well 2-0 in the first but got immediately broken back (he got irritated with a ball boy who kept throwing his towel on the floor, the ball boys were really untrained and incompetent in Newport), he did have 2 set points in the first at 4-5 15-40 but lost them with 2 easy bh ue in the net.

In the second it wasn't until 3-3 that he played really well and hit nice winners and attacked the net to win 6-4, I thought he was going to win easily at this point.

In the third he never played well even when he was up 4-2 and then 5-3 and he clearly gave up on mp although he had an easy passing shot he tried to hit a lob with no conviction.

Positives: He had incredible touches at the net, he almost won the point everytime he went to the net. The second part of the second set when he seemed full of life he was clearly the superior player.

Negatives: see above, basically almost lifeless and lacking fight for most of the game.

Kudos to Capdeville he served really well in key spots and played incredible rallies (even kiwi applauded 2 of them).

I took pictures I will post them later tonight in the pictures thread.

Kiwi, truly disappointing performance

I honestly thought he had a chance to win the title here

Seems it wasn't necessary to lose this match, many chances wasted.

Anyway, go Kiwi! Next tournaments are coming...

Thanks Sploush for your commentary and first-hand impressions!
Pity that you didn't get to see something better

and Kiwi was without life and not much fight?! oh no!

For all who wants that Kiwi get´s a Wildcard for LA.
Here is the email of the Assistante Tournament Director khim Stithem khims@scta.usta.com (Tournament director is Bob Kramer) I wrote already a email that it would be fair if Nicolas Kiefer gets a wildcard...
maybe we should send more emails that we want that Kiwi gets a WC as they didn´t made the decision yet.

In an interview, the Pilot Penn (New Haven) tournament director Anne Worcester mentioned that Haas asked for one of the Wild cards and that Kiwi "is on the next-in list and could also receive a wild card". Other candidates are Safin, Baghdatis and Philippoussis. She also mentioned that Ferrer and Grosjean are also options. There are 4 WC to be handed out.

Are u kidding me?
They should give him the wild card, no questions ask... He has had great results there. I will insult them if they dont give him the wild card.

He got the WC.
He should be able to avoid another first round loss (plays against Gabashvili), but then he could face Nalbandian.
