Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

Thanx, esther!

Woohoo good luck, Kei!
Muller will be a tough first round opponent, with big lefty serve (apparently Kei is not very fond of playing a lefty), but Kei has a good enough game to beat him!
Hope he will advance to the next ronud and have a revenge on JM!

Looks like Kei's match will be in the night session on Monday.

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

I looked around but haven't been able to find working live streams so I just bought a day pass.

And guys, the price of the official site streaming I quoted above ($9.95) is for a day pass. You have to pay $39.95 for the whole week!

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

I'll try, Rafkei!

Muller serving first. And Kei breaks after deuce!!
His FH down the line with a little off pace and timing at deuce was superb.
And he took the game with a FH winner.

Kei needs as many points here as he can because his points from Delray Beach will drop off next week...!

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

Kei starts the next game with a DF and gets broken back as his FH goes out just long...
1-1

Muller has now less butterflies and leads 2-1*

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

Much better service game from Kei. He holds to love. 2-2
FH winner, a service winner, a volley winner and Muller service return wide.

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

Guess both players are a bit nervous, dropping both their first service game.

Re: The " Homeward bound American series " SAP Open, San Jose - Main Draw

3-3
Kei's 1st serve % is getting better but he can do with even better %.

Muller then holds to 15. Not much happening now...
