Kei def. Monroe 6-1 7-6(4)
Apparently Kei was a break up in the second set but got broken back. But a win is a win and I think he is the favorite in Sunday's final in which he will face Kendrick.
In his blog after the quarterfinals against Reynolds, Kei wrote that he played really well and no matter how he hits the ball it went in. Reynolds played really well from the beginning as if he gave his all, and Kei was able to respond with good answers. Kei served well and had quite a few aces, and his return of serve was good too. The worries he'd had went away and he hopes to play like that always. (Very very rough translation!)
Win the title, Kei!!
