Of course, Kei started from a break down in the first set but managed to take it. He was a break up in the second set but Dodig quickly leveled and brought the set to a TB, which Kei dominated.
So a job done for Kei after the disastrous Day 1. Today he was serving smart and using drop shots, lob and passing shots effectively.
Dodig must have been tired after playing both singles and doubles (he called physio to massage his thigh late in the second set).
It's now down to Soeda vs Karlovic and I'm not counting too much on it.
At least it's been better than the whitewash Japan suffered in their past two World Group performances in the 1980s.
