------------------------------------------------------------------
It was announced a few days ago that he received a WC from the tournament he won as an 18-year old in 2008 and caused a sensation.
But then there were some withdrawals and he entered the main draw directly with his protected ranking of #106.
Benji Becker is coming back from a slump in the last couple of years and is now ranked #40 again. So it won't be an easy match although I think Kei has a chance to win if his form is back to near 2008.
But he needs match practice more than anything, so I hope it will be a good match and hopefully he can make it a close one and...win! Good luck!!

Re: Kei's come back trail---First stop: Delray Beach



there's probably no way he will beat Becker after this long break, but I hope he gets helathy through the match and shows a solid display

Re: Kei's come back trail---First stop: Delray Beach

6-3 1-6 6-0

Pity he couldn' keep the momentum in the second set. His first serve percentage was constantly below 50%, so that needs to be changed.
I hope the bagel in the third set is not due to some physical problems of his.
Still, it's good that he could last three sets. He surely needs more match practice as well as points so maybe he'd better go play some challengers or ATP quallies.

All the best, Kei, good effort!

Re: Kei's come back trail---First stop: Delray Beach

a bit sad that he lose but i'm more happy that his back playing, i agree bunny i just hope that the 6-0 third set does not have anything to do with his previous injury.

way to go Kei! will wait for your next tourney!

Re: Kei's come back trail---First stop: Delray Beach

Kei has entered qualies for IW. Qualie entry list for Miami is not out yet but I guess he enters that one too.
His name is also on the alternate list for Houseton.

If he gets to play them all, he will have used four of eight occasions he can use protected ranking.
