And for the next time, whoever makes the draws, please spare me seeing this idiot's name near Kiwi again I don't even want to think of what would have been possible in the last tournaments if Kiefer didn't face Federer every time so early

Does anyone think, Kiwi would be offended or anything if I sent him a bottle of champagne via his hotel? He did great and he'll need a drink.

Kiwi

As much as I am expecting him to lose, he has so many chances in this match, to even win it, but Kiwi is always Kiwi

He could have easily win the first two sets, and lead in the third set

Why he has to face Roger this early, otherwise I can see him go further in this tournament. Well, better luck next time.

Hope he will find more success in Asian tournaments, he usually had a great results in that continent, and most of his titles came from there

Go Kiwi

It's still not more than then minimum what he reached in New York. I don't know, is it 5 years ago when he reached the last of his 4 quarterfinals? Why can he never have a successful GS?

At least he don't have to play qualifying in Paris now with his few wins here and I'm confident he'll finish top 24, that should be his goal at least to avoid a 3rd round match against a top 8 player in Australia. Now he should win at least one of his 5,6 last tournaments. I'm going mad when I see guys like Stepanek on no.16 and Kiefer on 38.

He played well at times. However, he has to be more consistent to beat Roger. The double faults really hurt him. That lucky shot 3 all in the 3rd set, was the typical Federer shot that made Roger step up his level. Maybe next year in the slams, Nicolas will be on opposite sides of the draw.

I don't think Nicolas will be offended by champagne at the hotel, however, to me, he isn't the champagne type. I think he would prefer a beer instead. You could also send him a mini Roger voodoo doll to poke holes into as well.

Federer is just Federer. If you want to beat him, even on one of his worse days, you need to be so totally present to take the chances in order to make him even think of losing a match. And once he is in that position, he would have been beatable for sure.

But Kiwi couldn't get the frigging break in the third set and the end of the story was that Federer raised his game for one return game and the set was gone for Kiwi. Instead of serving for a 2-1 set lead, he was down 1-2 sets. That's what Federer makes so strong. Just remember this point as he saved the 2nd break point of Kiwi in the third set. Against everybody else I would say, Kiwi's good net attack would have been good enough, but Federer not only retrieves the ball, he is producing an unbelivable backhand crosscourt passing shot out of his forearm. Such little things decided it.

I think in order for Kiwi to get this feeling and to make such situations, he has to play more of such matches and he must continue to go his way, maybe winning a tournament wouldn't be bad also

Just like Wimbledon, he was the first player(this tournie to really challenge Roger). As everyones said it's a shame he cudn't get the break at 3 all. I'm so mad I didn't get to see it From the people who did, was it more of Federor playing to good on the big the points or was it more of Kiwi not taking his oppurtunities(like erors on cruscial points). What's u're take on it ?

I think Kiwi played well. I missed most of the 3rd set though cuz my friend and I had to go get waxed But apparently thats the set that he had a bp, but still... We gotta give credit where credit is due. Kiwi was great today. The end.

The dumb errors came at the worst possible times (like to go up breakpoint) and Federer's play picked up at just the exact right moments (on breakpoint). So it was a combination of both.

It was like Kiefer stopped thinking out there and fell into bad habits, like always hitting drop volleys, when a volley to the open court was the obvious shot. He could have gotten a couple more breakpoint opportunities on Roger if he didn't try the drop volley so many times.

He had a really big smile I think in the third set when he hit a sort of squash shot from way behind the baseline on the run for a winner on the opposite baseline. I have it saved on Tivo, so I'll try to get it on the computer and post it on my website nicolaskiefer.tripod.com. That way we can take something positive away from the match!

Glad isn't wasn't all about Kiwi mak'n errors, but it's obvious that he had chances. But Federor's that good. U have to take advantage when u've got the opurtunity

Please do, I'm sure everyone wud appreciate it
