Oh well, its JMDP again

Good luck to kei in memphis, Bagdathis is a tough one.

He seems to be having a bad draw all the time. :-)

Good uck kei, just hope he can stay healthy...

when you play at this level there's really no easy draw anyway, and i like to see kei match up with player ranked higher then him.

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " RMKC ATP Memphis : Main Draw - Page 4

Apparently, Kei had a flu in San Jose, hence his not very spirited performance.

After losing to JMDP, Kei told the Japanese reporters that he couldn't have a winning image. He uses the word "image" a lot in his pressers. Probbaly he wants to say when he's feeling well it's easy to visualise himself in his mind that he will win the next match.
His ranking will go down to around #90 tomorrow because the points from Delray Beach will drop off, but he also said that this year he doesn't want to worry about the ranking. He will have to play qualies in some events but he doesn't have much to defend either so I think we don't have to wait too long before he starts climbing up the ranking again.

Kei vs Baggy should be a fun match if both of them turn up physically as well as mentally.
Hope he's feeling better and can play with more confidence in Memphis!

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " RMKC ATP Memphis : Main Draw - Page 4

From the information i got from the Delray PR, Kei is not going to play in Delray Beach.

He has to travel back to Japan early for the Davis Cup.

Kei oh Kei

Re: The"Homeward bound American series" RMKC Memphis 1st rd : lost to Baggy 5-7 3-6 :


Looks like there were lots of breaks of serve on both sides, but Kei seemed struggling with his service. Hope it's not the affect of the arm injury he had recently.
O well, Baggy is a very good player and he's desperate to return to top 100.

Kei oh Kei
You didn't read my post on Kei's News Thread on Jan. 14! (No, no, I'm not blaming you! Everyone's busy and can't read all the posts!)
But I wish Kei defended his title in Delray Beach. I don't think Japan desperately need him to win this tie. Soeda and Suzuki should be able to handle China. But it's a rare occasion that he can play in Japan and perhaps he opted that.

So no tournament next week. He will probably come back to Japan soon.

Re: The"Homeward bound American series" RMKC Memphis 1st rd : lost to Baggy 5-7 3-6 :

No problem, esther!

According to the Japanese media, Kei's new mobile phone went off twice during important points in the first set and he got a warning from the umpire. Apparently this led to his loss of concentration, which was of course due to his own fault but unfortunate.
He also regretted that he made many errors. As for the arm, he said it's better but not 100% yet. Asked about the drop in the ranking, he said he didn't think he's a top 50 player yet, and he wanted to play more matches because he could learn a lot of things from actual matches.
But he's positive about the Davis Cup, he said since his arm is getting better he wants to serve better and put some pressure on the opponent with his serve.

But who the hell called him during a match!?
