Re: Clay Season 2010

Well done, Kei!!

I tried to stay up for the match, but it was from 2 a.m. and although usually I'm a night person, lack of sleep the whole week (partly because of Kei's marathon against Ward!) got me.

Anyway, I hope Kei will win the title!
But Sweeting seems to be playing very well. He recently won the USTA playoff for RG WC, and his ranking is approaching top 100.

According to Kei's blog, he also expects a tough match. Although it will be their first meeting, they know each other since the junior day and know each other's game very well. Sweeting is a big server and has very good strokes, Kei says.
Apparently he didn't have to do much in today's match because Sirianni made many errors. Apparently there was a long rally early in the second set, and after Kei won the point, it was pretty much straightforward, he wrote.
I'm glad Kei had two comfortable wins after that marathon match in the second round.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Also supporting Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori, Lleyton Hewitt
David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro, Nikolay Davydenko, David Nalbandian
Goran Ivanisevic and Marat Safin
#3 Ferrero Tard

Re: Clay Season 2010

Everybody, Next week Kei will play in Sarasota, Florida, is that OK?
I wonder why he doesn't play in Busan, South Korea??
Not only total prize in Busan is higher than Sarasota, but this is also an Asian tournament, his hometown.

Re: Clay Season 2010

Hi Minh! If im not mistaken Sarasota is in Florida which means Kei considers it as his home tournament so obviously he is comfortable playing there.

Btw big congratulations to Kei for his first final in a long time! I hope he wins it!

Really excited on his achievement so far!

Anyway anybody have some new updates regarding Roland Garros? Will Kei play qualifying or has he have a chance to enter the main draw or even received a wild card?
