I wish he can enjoy his first Davis Cup experience.
its a tough choice between the two, but there's still a whole year ahead to gather more points.

Someone called him during the match? News to me!
Maybe his rumoured girlfriend (a Japanese table tennis player)?
Hope Kei can rebound in his rankings soon!

It will be his second DC tie. His played the first round tie agaist India last April.
But it will be his debut in a home tie. Hope it will be a good tie and boost his confidence!

I doubt it. She's been an established player much longer than Kei. In any case they haven't confirmed they are an item. She's refusing to speak about her private life, which she's fully entitled to, and there's been no word from Kei either.

Re: The"American Series March Madness" BNP Paribas Open @ IW Main Draw

Thanx, esther!

As you guys probably remember Kei played Ljubicic in Beijing in 2007, when he was still an amater ranked 257 and Ljubo was a top 20 player. Kei lost 6-3 6-4.
Now Ljubicic is ranked 79 and his record this year is 2-5, so Kei definitely has a chance if he's fit.
...but I don't think tendonitis goes away that easily and I just hope Kei won't aggravate the injury by playing through pain. Hope he's feeling much better with his arm...!

Re: The"American Series March Madness" BNP Paribas Open @ IW Main Draw

Kei's first round match is scheduled as the second match in the night session on Thursday, after Mattek vs Garbin that starts 7 p.m. local time.
Good luck, Kei!

Re: The"American Series March Madness" BNP Paribas Open @ IW Main Draw

Kei lost 6-3 6-3.

I only watched livescore on and off from 1-4 down in the first set. The second set was closer, there were four breaks of serve altogether. But all of Kei's four DFs occurred early in the set, which resulted in two breaks although Kei broke Ljubicic's serve in between those two games.

I hope this loss is a blessing in disguise because now he can rest for at least two weeks before Miami.
Resting is the only cure for tendonitis.
Good luck to Kei in Miami!

Re: The"American Series March Madness" BNP Paribas Open @ IW Main Draw

Really!? Where did you hear that, esther?
AFAIK, his name is still on the entry list.

He did pull out from the Sunrise challenger this week, but he was #12 on the alternate list so he had little chance to play there anyway unless he was prepared to play qualies.

Of course, if he's still having the injury then he shouldn't play. Miami is like his home tournament in U.S., and the ATP Awards will be announced during the tournament so I'm sure he wants to be there. But I hope he and his team will make a sensible decision even if he is playing, because it seems to me he played in many tournaments when he really shouldn't have.

Re: The"American Series March Madness" BNP Paribas Open @ IW Main Draw

Hmmm this is the Miami entry thread and the list hasn't been changed for the past four days, it's the same with other sites with similar information.
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show....php?p=8141991

But if he has to withdraw, so be it. He played one too many tournaments while still injured and I have a feeling he better take rest and recover 100% by the clay court season. (I also wished he didn't enter a useless tournament like Houston and try qualifying European clay tournaments because he's said he likes clay and wants to do well in RG, but that's another story.)

Kei won't play Miami and he's out yet for a month or two (because of his arm) I am talking to his coach now.

Re: The"American Series March Madness" BNP Paribas Open @ IW Main Draw


Thanx for the information, Nathalia!
Yeah, I just realised his name is gone from the entry list.
Hope the next time he plays he will be completely injury free!

So esther, your source was correct!
Sorry if I sounded like I didn't believe what you said the other day! That's not what I meant!

It's a pity Kei won't play Miami and maybe more tournaments, but I hope he will take really good care of himself and concentrate on treating the injury. He's still so young a month or two away from tennis is no big deal in a long perspective. It's far more scary to continue playing with an injury.
