#5 seed Raonic looking confident after taking out last year's champ and then Chinese qualifier Ze Zhang.  Who's going to get mowed down by that serve next, Fed? ;-()

Roger has to get by his first match tomorrow.... No need to even think about Raonic yet. :)~

I think Federer is going to win this year, but if he meets Nadal in the final he will loose.

If Nadal wins this tour which is prolly the fastest court on tour, it would be really surprising to me. Nah I can't see him getting that far..

Easy cruise for Tommy vs Granollers 6-3 6-4. Class act on grass  ;-()
Next up vs Berdych will be definitely a good one, considering their play style..

Maybe it was 'misquoted' or was taken from German or something?

Here is the full version which was translated from German to English.

"It was a very good match at a high level. Floran had the advantage that he had already completed a match on grass in Halle. So I had a little afraid that I have after my first match here again must pack your bags. I am glad that I have played so well, for worse I would not be allowed to play, "Federer praised the Germans. He was disappointed and happy at the same time. Satisfied if its good performance disappointed that there was not enough: "It's really annoying that I have received pre-sets already in the second round of such a heavy chunk unlucky with the draw stop many others I would have now beaten surely.." Florian Mayer is convinced."

Nadal plays the ball too short. Now everybody is going to place the ball to his backhand because this court is faster and ball bounce low.

Kohli makes a stunny return winner to break through 2nd set. The court is quick and help him a lot.

Kohli def. Nadal 6-3 6-4  :grind dance: :grind dance:

To be completely honest, I expected this. After watching Kohli for years, this grass court win vs Nadal is not a shocker to me at all even many others would call it huge upset.

Halle is much faster court than Queens, so Nadal had no chance as I already said before of beating Kohli and let alone winning Halle.
I'm very pleased with this win, and Kohli will be a tough match-up whoever wins in Tommy-Berdych match..
