Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing!: first KL and now Tokyo!

Kei and Kimiko would be great!

Kei's not playing on Monday...
And I can't go on Tuesday!
O dear if he loses I won't be able to see him play!

The thing is apparently Kei had a tape on his wrist during the practice match with Tsonga today.
It seems neither was giving 100%, since it's only a practice match and Tsonga is just coming back from a knee injury, so it's hard to make a guess on their forms.
After the draw ceremony, Kei told media that he's fit and looking forward to playing in front of the Japanese fans, but he's a polite kid so he wouldn't say anything to make us worried...
I really want to believe his words and hope he'll beat Troicki!
But if he has concerns about his wrist he should pull out, really.

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing!: first KL and now Tokyo!

Kei's match is third on Center Court on Tuesday, not before 2 p.m., the time TV broadcast starts here.

Today he was apparently practicing for about 45 minutes in the afternoon although I missed it!

Good luck, Kei! Please win! Otherwise I can't see you at all this time!

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing!: first KL and now Tokyo!

Oh Kei.... He really have to do something with his serve... He never won his serve easily, every serve of him is torture, while Troicki serves Roddick-style. Kei broke early, hardly hold his serve in 6th game but eventually Troicki broke him back for 4-4 (Kei had gamepoint and he made DF).

Then Troicki holds for 0, and now 0-40 on Kei's serve, 3 SPs for Troicki.

Set for Troicki.


SERVE SERVE SERVE WHERE IS THIS DAMNED SERVE??????????

Again. Early break - and problems with serve, Troicki break back.

Sadly, but with this serveKei have to go back to challengers. Even in 2-3 handreds I can name guys who can easily handle Kei's serve. On ATP level this is piece of cake for everyone.

I know what you mean Danakz, I was at work too but I kept sneaking updates from livescore.com
This is a pretty big let down for me personally, I had anticipated this tournament for some time now.
I am a little less upset after seeing the final results because there's actually no live stream(very strange because there were live streams for WTA Tokyo last week)

I've seen his matches this year when I thought his serve has improved and was ok, could this be just another bad day?
