No thread? GOOD. Now I get to make it.
Fantastic win from Kei, and down two sets to love at that. Unbelievable. Taking out the trash. Surely he will be exhausted after these whirlwind couple of weeks, but I look forward to watching him take it to Djokovic.

Project 45.

RIP Marat

Maybe my thread was 1 minute late. Never mind!

That was a great come back from Kei.
Giraldo dominated from the baseline early on, but Kei hanged in there in the third set and showed an array of his arsenal in the tie break. Those drop shots, volley winners, laser-sharp FH winners were so great to watch.

Giraldo had a thigh problem in the fourth set and Kei received massage on his right knee before the decider, but it was Kei who drew the first blood in the fifth set and he never looked back.

Good luck against Djokovic! Hope Kei can recover well from this long match in time for the second round.

Like I said in the other thread.. I was sad to see Giraldo didn't make it, since I was cheering for him. But all credit to Kei, he played an excellent match and obviously deserved the win. Nice to see Asian players doing well too.
