What a fight from Kiwi, saving 2 MPs in the third set.

But honestly, it was an ugly match, both players played really bad, hardly hit winners, just wait for the opponents to make errors. Maybe the windy condition was one of the factor. Kiwi's match had cost me watching lots of other matches that I was planning to watch

First set: Kiwi played well until the 10th game, he had a few opportunities to get the break points, but just couldn't take the opportunities. He held his serves pretty easily (and the contrary for Paradorn) until the 11th game when Kiwi lost his serve (I guess he lost a bit of concentration there). Break back straight after that (thanks to Paradorn's double faults and bad serve). From this point, Kiwi started questioning call after call, argue with the umpires, intimidated the lines judgemen, and it really cost him the first set as he seems to lose his focus here. Down early in the tiebreak, got the mini break back, but made an unforced error on his own serve. Overall, Kiwi should take this set easily if he focussed better and took the opportunities, but he just let them slipped away

Second set: Paradorn played a bit better now, hit several winners (esp. the backhand winners). Both players struggled to hold serve, Kiwi had so many opportunities here (not because he was playing great, but because of Paradorn's errors after errors), but couldn't make the best of it, and his serves really let him down. Somehow, he didn't serve that fast today, and not many aces as well. He seemed to not hit the ball too hard, and up to this point, it's Paradorn controlling the match. Kiwi still argued a lots about calls (that he thought was wrong, but I think the linesman did a great job, it's just Kiwi imagining things ). A couple of games in this set, kiwi was up 40-15 on his serve, but somehow manage to lost the serves Same as first set, Kiwi should have won this set.

Third set: I missed the first 2 games (which Kiwi lost), and he got the warning from the umpire in the second game of this set. I thought Kiwi would have given up at this point, but it seems that the warning from the umpire somehow calmed Kiwi down, and he started not to argue much and focus more on his game. He was still struggling to hold serve (again, his serves let him down), lots of game went to deuce and thankfully he still won it. On the tenth game of third set, Kiwi faced 2 match points (not consecutively) and he saved both of them with great play, and I guess this was the turning point for Kiwi, and he played a much better and cleaner game from here on. Paradorn still played pretty good in the tiebreak and was up early on. Kiwi somehow fought back to win the tie break (thanks to Paradorn bad first serve). Funny enough, while the first two sets, Kiwi should have won it, in this set, Paradorn was the one played better but Kiwi won it

Fourth set: Paradorn broke early, but Kiwi had gained his confidence back and started playing better. He started hitting big serves, good groundstrokes and less error. After down 1-4, Paradorn seemed to just let the set go and not really playing good.

Fifth set: Paradorn played a bit better than the fourth set, but Kiwi had been unstoppable and cruised to a comfortable 5-0 lead. He then lost the next 2 games and finally close the match at 6-2 One funny thing happening in this set when the score was 4-0, Kiwi got a point penalty from the umpire. I wasn't so sure for what reason, but I guess one of the lineswoman reported to the umpire that Kiwi tried to harrass/intimidate her by doing something (something to do with his private part). I was so funny seeing Kiwi arguing with the umpire and call the referee to the court and "holding up" his pants trying to explain something. I couldn't hear their conversation and since the accident was in the other side of the court from where I sat, I wasn't so sure what happened there. Is it just me or it's one of Kiwi's habit to making some funny stuff with his "private part"? I remember this also happens last year when he lost to Rochus.

Some notes about today's match:
* Kiwi wasn't playing good at all, his movement is still quite slow. I hope it's not because of the injury. Hope he will play much better next round
* Thankfully, Paradorn just recovered from an injury too, hence he wasn't playing his best as well today, otherwise Kiwi would have lost in straight set
* I don't quite like his new Diadora shirt, it's too tight for him. However Paradon's shirt is even tighter

His next round should be easier, hope he can make the best of it.

Sorry I didn't take any photos today because I didn't sit in the front and my camera' s zoom is not too good.

If Kiwi wants to go deep in the draw he has to switch his brain on
there is no reason for his sometimes inappropriate behaviour

anyway, nice fight and regroup, Kiwi

thanks for the report, kfh

Thanks for the detailed report of your impressions, Henry!
I overslept the first and part of the 2nd set. I recorded the match, but I didn't have yet time to watch the rest.

From what I saw in the 2nd set, he had chances and chances in that set, but didn't win and then as Paradorn won the set I was thinking it was almost over. Thanksfully he got a bit lucky that Paradorn went such a high risk on his serves in the tiebreak, because I didn't have the feeling he would have won the point otherwise at this crucial situation.

BTW, I also thought that Kiwi was wrong with many calls he tried to discuss with the umpire. From TV pictures most of them looked good. And especially the point as he got the 2nd warning in the fifth set. This volley of Paradorn looked well inside the court, not even close. On TV we then got presented a close-up slomo of Kiwi's alleged "obscene gesture". It was with his back to camera, but I couldn't see anything really obscene. All I saw was that he made a strange deep step while grabbing the left leg of his pants Hard to say what his intention was with that *g* but even that lineswoman couldn't screw up that lead anymore, even though Kiwi should have won the last set 6-0 instead of 6-2.


I hope he can play better in his next match. The play itself wasn't good, at least the tournaround was allright for us.

Thanx for the report. I'm so relieved he won. He really had to fight hard. Next round should def. be easier.

P.S. I think the new shirt. It's a nice change, I think it looks good. Alot of guys are wearing tight shirts nowadays. Tommy Haas obviously Paradorn, Nadal, Feliciano Lopez. I always like that look compared to the loose ones like Roddick.

Anway. Please play better next match Kiwi !!!!!!!

I fear he won't play on a show court on Thursday, because Pashanski is such an unknown name. Today Ferrer and Nieminen are only on court 6.

You could be right about that, I'm worrying about the same. Pashanski is pretty unknown and I'm not sure if Kiwi's name is big enough for the tournament to make it to one of the show courts...

Thanks for all the reports. I don't like all the arguing with the lines people and losing his head mentally but can't complain since he won. However, how long can he keep it up?

If he was to meet Lleyton in a few rounds, that should be a hot tempered affair
