Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/2nd Stop: Washington!

Kei won 6-3 6-1.

Well it's a match he had to win coz it was against a 17-year-old WC ranked outside top 1,000.
Tomorrow he'll face top seed Kevin Anderson! Hope he'll win!

Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/2nd Stop: Washington!

it will be a very difficult match for kei tommorrow and he'll have to play his best to win.

am i the only one who's tired of kei getting these draws?

i mean lets look at the people he's had to face in early atp rounds:

gasquet, kuznetsov on grass(arguably his best surface), nadal, djokovic(in the 2nd round),giraldo on clay(easily his best surface) and now anderson here.

No, he doesn't seem to have the draw gods on his side.

That was a comfortable win today, but he'll need to play well to beat Kevin.

Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/2nd Stop: Washington!

I like them both, so a win-win-situation for me. Hope whoever wins will have a good tourney afterwards.

Probably a wise decision.
Cutoff in Canada can be pretty low if there are lots of withdrawals like last year when the last player accepted in qualies (Dlouhy) was ranked #216, but atm it's as high as #97---it's a Masters event after all---so I guess it's no use hanging in there waiting for other guys to pull out. There's also one SE spot there, but Kei needs to qualify first.

As misty and Thomas said Kei has been receiving no love from draw god, so he hasn't been able to get enough match practice in the last two months. At a challenger he has a better chance for racking up some wins and get back his rhythm and confidence!

Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/2nd Stop: Washington!

Obviously, Kei vs Anderson is the best qualie card left so this match, not the ones involving an American player, will be played on Centre Court before main draw matches today.

STADIUM
Matches Start At: 11:00 am

Kevin ANDERSON (RSA) vs Kei NISHIKORI (JPN)
Santiago GIRALDO (COL) vs Xavier MALISSE (BEL)
Michal PRZYSIEZNY (POL) vs Horacio ZEBALLOS (ARG)

I know it will be tough, but ganbatte, Kei!!

Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/2nd Stop: Washington!

Kei had a BP but Anderson (probably thanks to Big Kev's 3 DFs) holds after two deuces.

*0-1 Hold now, Kei!

Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/2nd Stop: Washington!

Hi misty,

Kei and his slow start.... Sure Anderson is a good player and has been playing really well lately on the ATP events but I really hope Kei can change his habit!
