IMO Kiwi is really playing some of the best stuff from the baseline since long time. Since Düsseldorf this changed and his groundstrokes look really good. And of course the usual good footwork is there as well and his serve is better too again (when watching him the last weeks, there was a time when I thought he can't hit anymore fast serves). I hope that Gicquel won't be a hindrance for him to reach the 3rd round

7-0 against Jürgen Melzer now... damn it, I wish he would have this h2h against somebody I don't like

Gicquel is 29 years old btw. He is called "young Frenchman" on Kiwi's homepage.

If you are from the US, I would get up earlier because I hope that the match is already over (in favour of Kiwi, of course) at 8am your time

WTF!!!
Unbelievable how he owned him in the first two sets and then made it so difficult. Also it was difficult to stay concentrated and tough all the time because of the three (?!) rain delays.

It was not so nice to watch, but thanksfully he won it somehow and reaching the 3rd round was the minimum goal with this draw, I would say!

Congrats Kiwi!

My family was here who don't even like tennis. I walked in the house (thank god i started recording just in case before i left) and everyone was like "MARY LOOK!!!!!!!" and I was freaking out. They all sat there and watched the whole thing too cheering him on It was funny because of the people here, no one likes tennis. Kiwi is universal! It was an entertaining match for those who aren't tennis fans. They were all yelling as much as I was!

The match might have been a bit messy, but the way he stuck in there and kept fighting was amazing. I always worry he'll lose it a bit and let the match slip away, but he fought with every point.

Now time to prepare for Berdych. and some pictures
