Kei and Pico lost to Paes/Stepanek. 6-7(4) 4-6.
After hurting shoulder in Acapulco, Kei apparently didn't have a lot of time on court to practice. That might have shown in his singles match although the injury must've got better, otherwise he wouldn't stayed on to play doubles.
BTW, Ito won in Kyoto and it means he make Top-100. With soeda and Kei it means 3 Japanese players in Top-100! Is it a record?
I think so, although Ito's breaking into top 100 isn't confirmed yet.
