They said on eurosport that he has a light shoulderinjury ("Schulterverspannung") and got treatment before the match. I know that he wasn't practicing yesterday... maybe because of that... But if he started this match the injury wasn't serious. He is very careful with such things lately. More concerned I am about his quote about the Davis Cup "I don't think I will be a big help"... how demoralized is he that he thinks he is not good enough to beat a Korean player who knows clay only from Future tournaments??? Maybe this quote was only from the first disappointment.... he will talk to Patrik Kühnen about it tomorrow... let's hope for the bestThat sucked.
I wonder, if he really felt okay.
Uggh.... hopefully he;ll rest up and be ready for his next tournament. This is one of those matches, we want to forget.I saw this match yesterday, so didn't understand why they didn't put this in the show court, both are well-known players. Without doubt, this court was full yesterday.
This was probably the worst I've seen Kiefer plays, of course, full credit to Ferrero who played and served extremely well. Kiwi had some chances to break in early third set, but Ferrero came with good serves most of the time to save the BPs. After got broken once, Kiwi totally gave up and lost easily.
I am disappointed he didn't even fight to stay in the match. Although he was pretty calm during the match, but it's not the Kiwi we all likes. He plays better when he gets upset or argues in the court :lol: Also, too many unforced errors from Kiwi, and his net play was terrible as well.
Oh well, maybe he was injured, who knows, it wasn't clearly showing in the match, I can only see he had no motivation at all in the match.
Again, full credit to Ferrero who plays extremely well
No problem, he couldn't do exactly much so far this season :lol:I didn't even realize he was back...
