Thanx chewy for the report!
How exciting for you, hope you can watch Kie play live!
I am hoping Kei was being extremely cautious last week because he wants to give 100% and not disappoint his fans in Japan. Having already missed a couple of chances after his debut 1st rd lost in 07, IMO he really really want to perform well in Tokyo.
If that is so, then it's not very fair to the spectators in KL.
He has played in Japan before but his fans in Malaysia were watching him play for the very first time.
Maybe he will have to learn how to pace his schedule and how not to risk his health when feeling something is wrong with his body.
Anyway, I wish him better luck in Tokyo, and courage to him if he's not 100%...
