Hello bee, I watched the match up till the rain delay in the third.
Not much to comment on this match, pretty much went according to plan I would say except for mother nature's interruption.

My poor recollection aside, I think Kei was up 5-0 before losing the one and only game in the first set.
Nothing overly impressive by either player, but I thought Guido Andreozzi played alright for his first major debut. He's got the bigger serve and hit more aces(but also more DFs), and on occasion out hit Kei in the rallies.

Kei with more experience, played the stats with a smarter game and got the job done in straights.
But I thought he wasn't returning well, so hopefully it gets better in round 2.

Next faces Tim Smyczek of USA which Kei has a losing record against...yikes!
Commanding a more solid performance from Kei!

PS. The stats page from US OPEN site is pretty neat, especially the momentum graph, didn't notice it before...
