Hya everyone, *bunny* from Tokyo here!
Been busy the last couple of weeks and hardly online on MTF, and suddenly there's Kei's forum!!
Thanx very much to the mods
to everyone who helped them create this forum!
I've been a tennis fan since early 1990s and have become really obsessed with it since 2001. My favourite players are in my sig.
I first learned about Kei in Japanese TV coverage of Roland Garros in 2006, in an interview after he won the junior doubles title there with Emiliano Massa. He was so shy and cute, but there was already this natural and unpretentious air around him, which I like very much, that after that I decided to pay attentoin to where he's playing, how he's doing. It took me a while before I could actually see him play...it was the doubles match with Go Soeda at AIG Japan Open last year. (I missed his singles first round where he lost to Fleishman coz I had to work that day) They lost to more experienced Suzuki/Becker duo.
So like many people it was his campaign in Delray Beach that I saw him play full matches, and what a pleasant surprise that was!
Nice to meet all you guys/gals here, I'm sure this forum has a great future, like Kei!
