Re: The " IF Stockholm Open -The Indoor Season" thread : QF walk over - Ancic ret. :

Awww he didn't make any excuse about his knee in the interview, saying just a little bit of pain, only after the interviewer aske him about the knee. And he said Robin served too well and he couldn't do anything today. Obviously he's disappoited he couldn't play good today.
He even said he hopes Robin will win tomorrow! He's learning his diplomacy, eh?

To our regret, his right knee looks not good...
I hope he gets rest enough and makes recovery

I look forward to see energetic Kei in the court!!!

Re: The " IF Stockholm Open -The Indoor Season" thread :SF lost to. Soderling 16 06 :

he is ranked 66 this week at least that should make us feel better.I hope if u all remember a good aim for Kei is to finish just outside top 50 for the end of year.
I think it is possible-if his knee were healthy maybe he could be in top 50,who knows??
But i need some replies on whether you all agree with me or not.If not,what rank should Kei get at the end of the year??

Hi Reaz Congrats to Kei!!!
He won against top 10 players, like Ferrer or Blake. If he displays his ability to the full, he will move into top 10 sooner or later.
But I think he is no need to rush. He is only 18 and began his career as a professional player just one year ago! All I want now is to see his best tennis as much as possible.

It's good that he is now at no. 66 that's +11 spots higher than his previous ranking, the project 45 will soon be destroyed . But of course we all know what his future goal is, which is to be a top 10 player or even the world number one. I really believed its possible, i just hope the injury subsides and will not be to serious, and hey his only 18. Knee injury is very serious, just look what happened to Tiger Woods. Well again lets hope that his injury was only a sore knee. Anyone has any news on how is Kei's knee problem?

I was hoping that he'll play qualifying at the Madrid Masters or even get a Wildcard, but i guess he needs a good rests for the upcoming tournaments (Guess he'll only have possible 1 tournament to join excluding the BNP Paribas Masters). Regarding the Wildcard at Madrid Masters, i think he should have been given one, that's my bias opinion. LOL.

I am also hoping that he can play at the coming BNP Paribas Masters. Anyone knew the draw size? This week's madrid master's draw was 48. If the BNP Masters draw size will be 64, im sure Kei will have automatic entry, not all Top 64 players will play at that event for sure. Or again if that is not possible let's hope he'll be given a wildcard, or he just needs to do the hardway which is to go to qualifying.

Am i thinking ahead of time? Sorry i'm just excited for Nishikori!

Can't wait for next year!

You can't expect a sensible decision from that tournament that gives no WC to a home player who is also a former champion whose ranking dropped due to an injury layoff.
Sorry, a personal rant. It's nothing againt you! I am very cross at Madrid Masters organisers' (or more precisely, Ion Tiriac's) stupid WC decisions.

Entry deadline for Paris Masters was Sept. 15, when Kei was ranked #77. He is currently No. 5 on the alternate list for the qualies, meaning there needs to be at least five withdrawals either from the main draw or the qulifying draw for Kei to play the qualifying rounds. And usually WCs go to French players...
So at the moment it looks like Basel will be his last tournament of the season, but you never know what will happen!

Hello Bunny!

Oh i see, don't know those technical sides on qualifying. I really appreciate you for at lease giving us those information. Lets just hope Kei does well in Basel and then perhaps be given a WC entry at Paribas Masters.
