Kiefer’s retirement

Hi!, Ciao!, Hola!, etc. 😉
My first ever entering to the blog.
Nicolas Kiefer, one of the three best German players of the previous decade, retires from professional tennis today at the age of 33, joining Alberto Martin, Sebastien Grosjean, Martin Damm, Taylor Dent, Dominik Hrbaty and Carlos Moya as the 7th player who finished his career in 2010.
Here is my tribute thread to him on MTF.
