Re: Australian 2012 Hard court season - Tearing it up at the Australian open

I tried to avoid learning the result till I get home, but it was impossible.

Well done, Kei!!
Would've liked to see an easier match but Benneteau is a fighter so I think Kei did a good job in the end.

This is the first time in 80 years since a Japanese male reached R4 at AO. (Jiro Sato was a semifinalist in 1932)
Hopefully Kei can replicate his results therer but Tsonga first. Good luck!!!
