Ok, I bought the Pay Stream for the best quality possible. Nicolas, you better kick Gonzalez' ass.

And so he did! He doesn't need a WC for Basel.

Kiefer was extremely lucky to win that first set (lucky netcord ball made it impossible for Gonzalez to touch the ball). He was very solid in the 2nd set and even hit some fh winners. His S+V was perfect, though of course Gonzalez sprayed the fhs all over the court.

Let's see what he'll do against Federer. He'll need to have less UEs on the fh side to at least make it a close match.

I think it's a huge advantage for Kiwi that his opponents are tired at the end of the season while he has played only half of the year. That could mean some more good results in the next two weeks.

Exactly, that's what I thought as well. Kiwi's season is only about 5 months old, while the others are playing twice as long already.

Kiwi is near the top 60 according to Judio's ranking thread.

Good luck against Fed!!

Kiefer lost 4:6, 4:6. Not that disappointing, since he played pretty well, apart from a few volley UE's. He had a decent chance to rebreak, after doublefaulting and thus getting broken in the first set, but his bh went wide.

Excellent week in Madrid.

Keep up the great form and continue to play that well in Basel. Let's hope that he won't have to meet Federer in the first round.

Kiwi played well, apart a few stupid volley errors, but there was no real chance today because Federer served 2/3 first serves and was very accurate. If Federer had only Kiwi's percentage, he could have done more demage because he was really competetive in the rallies and Federer's 2nd serve points percentage was vulnerable.

But neverthless, a really good week and that's he needed!

On to Basle!

Kiefer's Quarter in Basle:

Roger Federer (SUI-1) - Michael Berrer (GER)
Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) - Michael Russell (USA)
Nicolas Kiefer (GER) - Carlos Berlocq (ARG)
Stefan Koubek (AUT) - Juan Ignacio Chela (ARG-7)

With his current form, Kiefer should easily win the first match against Berlocq. The 2nd round, though, will be a lot tougher, especially if it's against Chela.

Too bad that he's in Federer's Quarter.

ATP says: Kiefer will now move back into the Top 100 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings next week after falling as low as No. 413 on July 9 and is a leading candidate for ATP Comeback Player of the Year.
