Hya, sorry I've been offline for so long, been busy but haven't missed Kei's matches. Really annoyed when his 3rd round match was not televised live in Japan, but an hour or so later to fit their usual time schedule. But his 4th round match will be aired live! So I'm looking forward to it.

The Japanese media are really going gaga over Kei's wins. But they'd better stop comparing Kei with past Japanese players because he's already so ahead of them achievementwise at the same age!

And apparently, his ranking next week will jump up to about #80 after reaching last 16!
*bunny*, congrats for Kei's forum and thanks for the information in your post. I am very happy for Kei's performance in reaching 4th round. Yesterda's loss was just a learning experience. Del Potro is full of confidence and I think Kei looked very tired, but all in all it was great for Kei to reach so far. Also it was great confidence booster in taking out the number 4 seed.
