Here is his draw for Madrid qualifying:

(3) GIRALDO, Santiago COL v SIDORENKO, Alexandre FRA
KIEFER, Nicolas GER v (12) VOLANDRI, Filippo ITA

Unfortunately two of my favorite guys are paired together

I really thought Kiwi could at least win one match in the qualifying and gain 16 valuable ranking points, but it probably isn't going to happen and I definitely can't see him beating Giraldo. But, it's early in the comeback so no depression yet. Hopefully he can find some form quick and surprise. Good luck!

Kiwi lost 4-6 2-6. He barely won points on return; Volandri won all but 7 service points, and he is one of the worst servers in the top 150. Obviously his reactions are off because he's had returning issues in all of his matches. Also his timing has been off in the matches I've seen him.

It's too bad he got placed with Volandri because he could have beaten other players in the draw. At this point the chances of him making to the MD of the French are very slim, he simply doesn't have enough match practice or toughness. Hopefully he can win a match at least for his ranking and also to gain some winning confidence, and maybe that will help him get on a positive run.

This looked really bad. Even against one of the weakest servers he couldn't do anything.

I'm quite shocked at the score actually. Why didn't he get a wild card?

A good fighting spirit. Hopefully Kiwi can get some good matches in on grass this year.

Sure he is.

He lost both his exhibition matches this week, 4-6 2-6 to Monfils and 6-7 1-6 to Kohlschreiber. Doesn't look good, but maybe he gets a good Wimbledon draw later today.
