Lets introduce ourselves Kei Fans! Konnichiwa!

Hello

Esther told me to make an introduction thread and I don't know what I am supposed to do.

So I thought we could all introduce ourselves etc and then when you stop by Kei's chat thread, we all know eachother.

So, I'm Thomas, 17 and a student. I have been a fan of Kei since around 2006Roland Garros when he was playing Juniors, I have a friend from Japan and I remember looking at the ATP rankings for a young Japanese player who could be a hope and couldn't really find anyone, so moved to the Junior rankings and soon found some information about him. I decided to create his cheering thread after he won the Luxilon Cup in 2007 at Miami and soon afterwards managed to find a video clip of him and liked what I saw. Soon after creating his thread his results starting coming last summer.

I can't think of anything else to write, but I have probably bored you so its your turn now. :wavey

Re: Lets introduce ourselves Kei Fans! Konnichiwa!

I am Ali and I am from Saudi Arabia in West Asia, but I also live in Thailand. I was a big fan of Shouzo Matsuoka in the nineties. Of course, I support Paradorn and all Thai players, and anytime I see an Asian in a tournament I support them. When Kei came on the scene in juniors 2006, I started following his career. So, I am happy that this is his break through year.

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!!

I first saw Kei at Wimbledon and was very impressed with him. I'm from the U.S., but I'm very interested in Asia and the Asian people because they are all so nice here at MTF

Re: Lets introduce ourselves Kei Fans! Konnichiwa!

Awwww, a fourm Congrats everyone!

I'm Nathii, a journalist from Poland and I like Kei since I followed him at Queens this year and had a chance to ask him a few questions. He's such a sweet kid and a big heart. Wishing him all the best.

Earlier successes made me wonder if it's fluke or not, but now I know it's not and he has pure talent.

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: Lets introduce ourselves Kei Fans! Konnichiwa!

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 and 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!

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Also supporting Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori, Lleyton Hewitt
David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro, Nikolay Davydenko, David Nalbandian
Goran Ivanisevic and Marat Safin

Re: Lets introduce ourselves Kei Fans! Konnichiwa!

Hallo.
My name's Thomas. I'm 23 years old and from Berlin, capital of Germany. I imagine watching tennis since I was very young, but it became more and more during the last years, so it turned into my favourite sport to watch. Unfortunately I couldn't watch Kei live so far. Hopefully this will change soon. I follow his career since his victory at Luxilon Cup. I really like his game and his fighting spirit.
