Court 13
11:00 AM
Kei Nishikori(JPN) vs. Marin Cilic(CRO)[11]
Alexandra Dulgheru(ROU)[25] vs. Sofia Arvidsson(SWE)
Kevin Anderson(RSA) vs. Thomaz Bellucci(BRA)[26]
Agnieszka Radwanska(POL)[9] vs. Shuai Peng(CHN)

Kei said on Japanese TV that he couldn't be as offensive as he wanted to be against Korolev early on because the guy hits so flat and deep.
But at 5-6 in the first set he decided to step up and play more aggressively and it worked.
He thinks return of serve will be the key against Cilic and if he can handle that he has a chance.

According to his blog on Wednesday he went out to have a Chinese dinner. Apparently his favourite dim sum is 小龍包 (shao long bao).

Good luck, Kei!
小龍包 also one of my favourite Shanghainese cuisine

Go Kei, this match is fun to watch.
