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%...
It's just my assumption, that he might not have push himself to the limit and put his health at higher risk. Whether Kei wants it or not, there're extra pressure placed on him playing in Tokyo with the expectations and commitment to the fans, media and his sponsors. Hope he can channel all of these into positive energy.

There was a lot of empty seats in KL, but the small crowd cheered loudly for Kei, it's quite unfortunate that he lost so quickly. I'm hungry for more matches from Kei so let see how he goes this week!
