Good to hear that he played well, Fee!

As for Monday, I simply hope that Kiefer doesn't join that list!

That's true Neely, but we have to keep in mind, that Gaudio recently was injured and in the first place I was surprised that he was capable of defeating Mirnyi at all. So concerning fitness Kiwi should be superior.

Default Re: :=Indian Wells=:

The problem is that Gaudio could be "a new Rochus" for Kiwi

Furthermore, Indian Wells is normally quite "stumpf" and rather slow, Gaudio should like this more.
I assume Gaudio was pretty well recovered in his match against Mirnyi already, otherwise he wouldn't won it as Mirnyi isn't such a bad player normally.

the 6-0 6-0 was nice, but for his next match I'm sceptical and I hope I can be convinced soon by a winning score

Sure, and I didn't wanna say that Gaudio would be an easy win or sth like that. I just think that he, bearing his injury in mind and the 3-setter against Mirnyi, shouldn't be threatening at all. But of course Gaudio can be quite annoying to face, I guess, especially on slow and *stumpfen* surfaces.

But hey, let's just send positive vibes to Kiwi!

Kiwi!!!

No sooner did I leave my SB at the beginning of the match to do some studying that I came back and he was done

Awesome result!!! Hopefully he can do just as well against Gaston!!

They moved Kiwi & Radek's match so I didn't get to follow the score on the SB. Didn't know they moved it till they were done. They lost to Seb & Gael 4-6 4-6. Haven't seen an OP yet for his match tomorrow.

I did not expect Kiwi to win so easily! 6-3 6-1



Now he will face David. This will be tough. As a match and on my nerves

Very well done, Kiwi!!!
I also never expected it that easily by the score.

Looking at the scoreboard now, I see the good thing was that he was able to break Gaudio four times and that he didn't get broken himself saving all five break points he faced.

It looks like he outplayed Gaudio as he didn't have any aces at all.

Good to notice, I'll take that 4th round after losing in the first round last year!

Also good is that he won despite the wind. Normally he doesn't play good in windy conditions, but Gaudio does.

These Indian Wells desert winds can be nasty, but I don't know how bad it really was.
