Default The KIWI grows on Wimbledon's grass thread (Ver 2.0)

haha, I had to borrow some parts for the topic title of last year's Wimbledon thread


He got Volandri in the first round!

If it has to be a seed, then at least it's one of the weakest grasscourt players!

Exactly. And when I first read about his opponent, I was quite happy, because it's a chance to "win" a seed, but then I realized who could be his next opponents.

R2: either Karlovic or Santoro

R3: Djokovic

His H2H against Volandri is 1:2 (lost at the Aussie Open 2004 and Rome 2004), but at least he won the last match which took place at last year's WTC. Same goes for the last match against Santoro (Kiefer defeated him in Miami 2006) with a H2H which the frenchman is leading 6:1(!). So I might cheer for Karlovic to defeat the magician. Of course, playing against the "ace machine", might lead to a frustrating 7:6, 6:7, 7:6, 6:7, 4:6.

Anyways, I hope that he can at least win that one match against Volandri.

Karlovic is that very tall guy who's serve is unbeatable especially in Wimbledon....

But hey...still the best draw he could get. Volandri is only good on clay as far as I remember. And the Kiwi I saw in Halle last week should be able to beat Santoro or Karlovic, too. If he would be as good as in Janurary 2006 I'd say he could make it into the Semis but right now... we don`t know how much better he became during the last week. But he got his chance with this draw.... I hope he will be happy at the end of this tournament.

My guess is that Volandri should be easier than Monfils or Nalbandian

I was taught in a GM thread that Volandri already took a former Wimbledon champ to five sets?

Who was it?

Good news: Kiefer plays his match on court 14 which means that german TV will be able to show it.
