Kiwi said in Hamburg that he is 100 % busy with his injury and he doesn`t want to think of anything else but this right now. If he is fit again and can play on the tour he will take part in this Tennis Germany thing but right now he has other things on his mind.... That`s what he said. And who can blame him for this??

Do you have a link, so that I can read the rest of that article?

Kiefer vor Comeback bei Rasenturnier in Halle

Kiefer vor Comeback bei Rasenturnier in Halle
Bild vergrößern

Halle (dpa) - Nicolas Kiefer hat nach einjähriger Verletzungspause sein Comeback für das in einer Woche beginnende Rasenturnier in Halle angekündigt. «Ich kann den Augenblick kaum noch erwarten. Es kribbelt», sagte der 29 Jahre alte Tennisprofi aus Hannover.

Bereits am 4. Juni will er ins ostwestfälische Halle reisen und sich dort auf die Rückkehr auf die ATP-Tour vorbereiten. «Da ist auch viel Nervosität im Spiel», sagte der frühere Top-Ten-Spieler. «Nach der langen Abwesenheit weiß ich nicht, wo ich stehe.» Vor einem Jahr hatte sich Kiefer bei den French Open in seinem Zweitrunden-Match gegen den Franzosen Marc Gicquel bei einem Sturz gegen den Netzpfosten am Handgelenk verletzt.

Nach zwei Operationen und einigen abgebrochenen Comeback-Versuchen soll die Leidenszeit bei der Wimbledon-Generalprobe zu Ende sein. «Er hat eine schwere Zeit hinter sich. Wir drücken ihm alle die Daumen, dass er zu alter Stärke zurückfindet», sagte Daviscup-Kapitän Patrik Kühnen. Die Veranstaltung in Halle bezeichnet Kiefer als eines seiner Lieblingsturniere. «Halle ist ein Stück Heimat. Ein Turnier, das mir ans Herz gewachsen ist», sagte der 29-Jährige. Die unfreiwillig lange Pause habe ihm auch gut getan. «Der Akku ist wieder richtig voll.»

In Abwesenheit von Kiefer und des ebenfalls verletzten Thomas Haas verpasste die zweite deutsche Garde bei den diesjährigen French Open die große Chance, aus dem Schatten der beiden Alphatiere des deutschen Tennis zu treten. Keiner der drei deutschen Starter ist in der zweiten Woche des Grand-Slam-Turniers noch dabei. Florian Mayer (Bayreuth) und Benjamin Becker (Mettlach) scheiterten bereits in ihren Auftaktspielen, Philipp Kohlschreiber (Augsburg) in Runde zwei.

Doch Kiefer weist die Rolle als Hoffnungsträger weit von sich. «Meine Erwartungshaltung ist erst mal bei Null. Ich will einen Punkt, ein Spiel, einen Satz, ein Match gewinnen - alles Schritt für Schritt. Ich muss mir viel Zeit lassen.» Zudem wolle er auf dem Platz gelassener werden. «Ich will Tennis nicht mehr so viel arbeiten, sondern mehr genießen», sagte er. An eine Rückkehr ins deutsche Daviscup-Team, das im September im Halbfinale in Russland ausgerechnet auf dem ungeliebten Sand antreten muss, denkt Kiefer derzeit noch nicht. «Die Jungs haben zuletzt gut gespielt. Was ich beitragen kann, wird man sehen», sagte Kiefer.

He will practice in Halle from Monday on!!!!

Can't wait.

Are the grass courts already ready for him to practice on them?

all courts exept the center court are ready all year long (not in winter though). They just have to draw the lines on them. And if Kiwi wants a court they will get one ready for him. They love him in Halle... they do everything to help. But I think not only Kiwi wants to practice there. Just think of all the players who already lost in Paris. Blake, Berdych, Becker, Kohlschreiber... I am sure all courts are ready now.

I translated the complete interview that was mentioned in the above article:

Interview with Nicolas Kiefer:

Halle is my favourite tournament. Halle is a part of my home

Hannover/HalleWestfalen. Nicolas Kiefer (29) is together with Tommy Haas the most successful German tennisplayer over the last years. He injured his wrist at the 2006 French Open. After being injured for 1 year Nicolas Kiefer wants to celebrate his comeback at the Gerry Weber Open.



? Mr Kiefer, how do you feel so close before your comeback.

NicolasKiefer: I cannot wait for the moment to come. It`s prickling. And this feeling keeps growing. I am so much looking forward to the atmosphere, the stadium and my fans. Of course nervousness is also part of it. After one year I am questioning myself where do I stand?

? What makes Halle so special for your comeback.

Kiefer: Halle is my favourite tournament. Halle is a part of my home. Halle is gras, my favourite surface. And the close contact to the Weber family makes this tournament even more special



? Did this year of injury change your attitude towards tennis.

Kiefer: Tennis is and will be my dreamjob. I cannot think of anything better. This also includes my secret love for soccer! Friends say I became more relaxed. That`s something others can tell better than me. I am happy about every second I can be on the court. I don`t wanna work tennis but enjoy it now.

? Which goals did you set? Is it possible to get back into top 10.

Kiefer: My next goal is to read my name on the schedule for this tournament. After that winning a point, a game, a set, a match. I will take my time and go step by step

? Do you hope for a comeback into the Davis Cup Team.

Kiefer: The guys played very well lately. We'll see how much I can give for the team. In the end it`s up to Patrick Kühnen and the achievements of all players. It`s the same as for the national soccer team.



? Who helped most during the last year? Where there moments when you thought about a possible end of your career.

Kiefer: Of course my family, my friends and my team. We all had a close contact. When I was depressed they built me up again. Also talking to the soccerplayers Mario Gomez, Per Mertesacker or MiroKlose who I met in Donaustauf helped a lot. I never thought about ending my career. I feel too young and too ambitious.

? With which other players did you keep the contact.

Kiefer: Only very few. But that's normal. Of course I had some contact to the DavisCup-Team. But the break was also good. I have been on tour for 9 years. Now the battery is full again, and I am looking forward to travelling, tournaments and other players again.

? How much tennis did you see while being injured.

Kiefer: To be honest I didn`t see much tennis. Of course I saw the Davis Cup. But apart from that? Oh yes I read that Andre Agassi hit Steffi during a showmatch. I always said: Never play mixed. Especially not with your family.

Vielleicht kann ich im September gegen Moskau ja sogar helfen. Ich brauche zwar Zeit, um wieder meinen Rhythmus zu finden. Aber ich bin ein Kämpfer.
It's nice, that he's thinking about the DC. He says that maybe he might even be able to help out in Moscow. Maybe he means by being with them and cheering them on.
The only chance for him to actually play for the DC this year, would be if the german team pulled off the upset against Russia and played against the USA on HC. But first of all he needs to have his comeback, doesn't matter if the first few weeks aren't that successful. He just needs to stay healthy.

Tommy Haas just withdrew from Halle and Wimbledon! He already had 2 surgeries on his shoulder and it seems to be serious again. So if Tommy is not fit they might ask Kiwi again... But it's still a lot of time until September.

Kiefer had better results on clay these past years anyways, but I really don't want to think about it. Hopefully Haas will be back for the HC season. Just when we were about to have two top players again.
