Re: 2010 US Open Main Draw! Kei Returns to Flushing Meadows

Cilic starts with 2 DFs!

But now 30-30

Net cord ball doesn't go over the net and adv Kei!

Kei's FH just long... deuce...Cilic holds. 1-1

Both players a bit tight, particularly Cilico

Kevin Anderson(RSA) vs. Thomaz Bellucci(BRA)[26]
Agnieszka Radwanska(POL)[9] vs. Shuai Peng(CHN)


Kei said on Japanese TV that he couldn't be as offensive as he wanted to be against Korolev early on because the guy hits so flat and deep.
But at 5-6 in the first set he decided to step up and play more aggressively and it worked.
He thinks return of serve will be the key against Cilic and if he can handle that he has a chance.

According to his blog on Wednesday he went out to have a Chinese dinner. Apparently his favourite dim sum is 小龍包 (shao long bao).

Good luck, Kei!
小龍包 also one of my favourite Shanghainese cuisine

Go Kei, this match is fun to watch.

Re: 2010 US Open Main Draw! Kei Returns to Flushing Meadows

I hope Kei can take advantage of these service errors from Cilic early in the match and secure the break...and he just did!

Is Shanghainese food popular in Japan or only the 小龍包?
I don't get to eat it often, which makes it more special.

Well, Chinese food in general are very popular here.
There are lots and lots of Chinese restaurants---Shanghanese, Pekinese, Szechuan, etc etc.
Food like 春巻、餃子、炒飯 are staple food at many Japanese households.
But dim sums tend to be much more expensive here than in say Hong Kong (which I love!).
