Did you see the interview with Bandermann? Kiwi kinda ignored the interesting question about the match three years ago.

Against such an opponent he really has to force the Centre Court match-up with Nadal and I have a good hope that won't look patheticly in that match.

haha really? But with Bandermann, sometimes I would also ignore some questions maybe he's just asking in a strange way sometimes

I didn't see it yet, but I will fast forward through the recording and maybe get to see how it was.

Heh, Kiwi was smiling and said that today there were no problems, since it was a clear matter.

But what exactly happened 3 years ago? I already forgot.

Oh, and according to him Germany will win tomorrow's match against Turkey with the following score: 5:1.

I think it wasn't a real big thing, but enough for the match that there were some negative vibes between them. Maybe it was a discussion about a call about which I wrote in my old post http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...9&postcount=39

At Halle after a match, he also picked Germany to win over Croatia by two goals, I believe. And we now know what happened

But let's hope he is right this time

thanksfully no surprises today!
Kiwi beats VA 6-0 6-1 6-3 and gets the big match against Nadal!

I don't think he will beat him, but please give him a good fight!

If Kiwi keeps on playing his best tennis and Rafa has one of his bad days everything can happen. But I somehow don't think Rafa will have a bad day

I thought of you the other day when I was watching Germany play! I don't know who I'll be cheering for on Sunday since I only watch ~soccer~ once like every other year , but I know who I'll be cheering for tomorrow.

Normally you would need to cheer for Spain in soccer(sic!). Because I have the impression they are generally the more intriguing side for rather neutral viewers and because they are the ones who deserve it more because they didn't win a big title since eternity, so they really need it this time

I will hope for Kiwi, of course but I can stand Rafa pretty well, thus the expected loss isn't going to feel that bad like against most other players because he will give us some more great matches this tournament

Since I'm not a soccer fan and really know nothing about the sport, I cheer for Spain cuz they're a beautiful team. Sad, but true.

I want Kiwi to play a good match and win one (or even two sets), but this Wimbledon has been TERRIBLE for me, as I'm sure you can imagine , so I want someone I like to make it far in to week two, and between Kiwi & Rafa, I think we know who that candidate is. Normally I'd go in to this match not cheering for either, which I probably will be doing tomorrow since they're both favorite players of mine, but I know who I want to come out on top at the end. I've seen all my guys go out in the first four days.
**********ducks & hides**********

I can't tell you how excited I am just to see him again! I don't think he's been on American TV since the last time he played Federer at Wimbledon! And I haven't seen him in person since before that.... I'm just excited to watch him play!!!

Nadal def. Kiefer 7-6(3) 6-2 6-3

But good to see that Kiwi could enjoy the match at the end as he got fired up for some more minutes after finally breaking Nadal the first time in the match.

He played a very intense first set, but after that you could see that his tension began to fall. Like against Nadal in the Davis Cup match. It seems to be just too tough to play like that for a longer time to force Nadal to a close set, or even win a set.

Default Re: 2008 Grass court season!!! Gooooooo Kiwi!!!

So that just completely reminded me why I loved Kiwi. The end of the third my friend was like "See! He's trying to make you like him again!" But realistically, that started the second he walked on court. He couldn't stop the inevitable, but he sure made it enjoyable... especially when he started smiling and getting the crowd involved. Let's hope he stays injury free for a long time!!! I love having him back.
