Default Kiefer in Halle comeback. How are his chances to win a match?

Not good at all.

Out of all the possible opponents, I feared Federer and Berdych the most.
He plays against Berdych, someone who loves to play against Haas and Kiefer (remember those painful 5 set losses) Had he played against a weaker opponent, then there would have been a slight chance for a win (for example Mayer).

Oh well, I am just happy that he'll have his comeback match. And if he gets destroyed, so be it.

Bad luck for Kiwi.

But nice to see him in a main draw again.

Ironically, Berdych was Kiefers last opponent before the one year of playing no matches. He retired after losing the first set 1:6. His last real match was, of course, one round before against Gicquel.

Well ofcourse i hope for the best, I'm not expecting much considering how long Kiwi's been out. I just wanna see pictures from his first match back

Interesting. Guess he'll take all the match practice he can get. Hopefully he can at least score a win in the doubles competition.

Since he faces Berdych, I kinda expected him to play on Tuesday. Anways, I am glad that they're thinking about the DSF coverage, and that we'll able to see the match. Best wishes to Kiwi.

Of course not a good draw because Berdych isn't easy. I hardly can expect him to win that. I would love to, but not likely going to happen, is it?

Kiwi lost to Berdych 4-6 6(3)-7.
I must say, I have never been so excited for a loss! He played (by watching the numbers) amazing and stayed in the match! I'm so happy for him!

Just watched my recording of the match. Geez, I was disappointed. But that only shows how well he played. He did much better than I expected. More about it later.
