Kei was already my favourite of the young ones and this just confirmed it. Have someone to really root for when Nadal retires. Seems like such a sweet guy and wow that backhand. There was a lot of expectation and pressure today and he rose to it. To think that not so long ago he was still Project 45 - top 10 here he comes!

A word for Milos - today doesn't take away his great win vs Murray - he'll obviously contend for big titles with that serve of his. Do think however that he is limited by the fact that he so often relies on tiebreaks - needs to improve that BH a lot more as his patterns of play become predictable. Still, future top 10 too and not too distant future either.
