ToJo beats Kei 7-5 retirement

Hm, a bad way to win a match but i'm glad he came through the first set the way he did ^^ next up Tursonov he should have a good shot against him aswell, really hope he can make a run in this tourney

Re: ToJo beats Kei 7-5 retirement

Do we know what kind of injury it is yet for Kei?

Kei doesn't seem to have the fitness required to play on the ATP tour yet.

Re: ToJo beats Kei 7-5 retirement

I was very surprised to see Kei with top odds on this one. Glad Tojo got through it though even if Kei wasn't able to finish the match. I like Kei but I think Tojo had more potential to do well on the grass.

I dont understand the hate for tojo? Why is he a mug?

He has been a top professional for many years now, has always played the game fairly and kept his pride.

Never moans, and keeps himself to himself.

Its not his fault he is getting old and cant keep up with the up-comming youngsters.

On his day he is still a handful for anyone on a fast surface as pics found out earlier in the year.

Re: ToJo beats Kei 7-5 retirement

Why stepping on court to retire after a set?

You think he should have waited until he was 0-1 in the second? That would make him "sexy", at least when you do it on an AMS semi

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: ToJo beats Kei 7-5 retirement

When the last time someone got into QF after playing just 1 set?

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic
