Yeah this whole Project 45 thing is getting really annoying. The sooner he passes it the better.
Good efforts by Kei and Gonzalez in doubles. Apparently Dante and Machi's coach are freinds and that's how they decoded to play together.
From Kei's blog about doubles: (Unofficial translation!)
It was a very frustrating defeat.
We were a step away [from victory], but they were strong.
Later I learned that they were a very strong team, both of them in top 10. (O, Kei...you didn't know that? ) They were both very good at serve and volleying, and they were always moving on court. So they were putting a lot of pressure on us, it was a tough match.
But we were so close [to victory] so I feel frustrated.
I will practice for a couple of days here and will go to UK on Sunday.
So this year's French Open is over, but I feel grateful for the fact that I could play because many doctors helped me in Japan, and many people were concerned about me.
Of course, I'm not satisfied with the result, but I want to return next year stronger so that I can reach R3, R4.
