    Should be a good match that I dont think they are showing on ESPN... I say Kief takes it but I want Grosjean to win.

    Grosjean > Kiefer
    Frenchie has had better results in slams.
    Also I think he will win, that's the deciding factor.

    Kiefer is down 1-4 in the fourth set, but he won the third. I think this will go to a fifth.

    broke back 4*:5 it's an intensive match - no high quality but mentally exhausting

    OK, there will be a lot of talk about this match
    Kiefer wins 6:4 0:6 6:4 6:7 8:6 this was a perfect example on how to win "ugly" ;)

    Didn't show this match over here, but i've been following the score and comments on the plays and i agree that Kiefer's action (thrown racquet) will attract a lot of attention in the press.

    This has ruined my predictions now. I was correct about Baghdatis, Nalbandian and (most possibly) Federer and Grosjean was my other pick. Ah well...

    Poor Grosjean =(. But on the bright side, Grosjean has absolutely NO chance of beating Federer. So it all works out.

    Perfect example of how to steal a match. He should defaut and give the match to Grosian.

    I think Kiefer read the Brad Gilbert's book "Winning Ugly"

    BG would not -- and did not -- endorse Kiefer's behavior. As someone said in another thread, there's a difference between winning ugly and winning dirty.

    Gilbert was pretty exercised about it, in fact. He said it was the opposite of sportsmanlike and the ump and ref ought to be shown the door for handling the incident so poorly.

    kiefer: WHAT AN AS S HOLE!!! he should be defaulted for that stunt and the ref and umpire should be on the same plane.
