Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur

Kei is already busy in KL!

http://www.malaysianopentennis.com/2...Activities.pdf

Today he had an autograph session at the main stadium's information booth.
Tomorrow, there will be another autograph session with Kei at StarBucks at Barjaya Times Square in KL.

I wonder whether esther's going!?

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur

Kei and Baggy met once, in Memphis last year, and he lost 7-5 6-3.
Kei had already hurt his elbow so probably he wasn't playing at his best.
But then Baggy's form at that time was by no means stellar. A you guys know this season the Cypriot has broken back to top 20 for the first time in two years and he had a great summer American hard court season before suffering a shock first round defeat at USO. So I'm sure he wants to put the disappointment back and do well in KL.

I think it will be a very interesting match because they are both very talented shotmakers. They are now injury free and are playing very well. I like Baggy too but I hope Kei can collect some valuable points this week so he can return to top 100 soon.

Btw, Kei didn't need WC after all because there were quite a few withdrawals in MD. His WC has been given to local player Si Yew-Ming.

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur

Monday's OOP is out and Kei's name is not in it.

According to his blog, it took him a day and half to reach KL.
First he went from Florida to New York, where he had to wait for a transit flight for eight hours (So he went to Manhattan). Then he flew to Vancouver, then to Hong Kong and finally to KL! Wasn't there any easier flight route?

But he's happy with the hotel that he wants to stay there for a holiday. The room is spacious, he can watch NHK (Japan's public broadcaster) and there's a very good gym in the hotel, he wrote.

He practiced twice on Saturday, in the morning and in the afternoon. He wrote that the court is very slow and he may need some time to get used to the speed.
He expects a tough match against Baghdatis because he's been playing very well recently.

(As always the above is a very rough summary of what Kei wrote and I apologise for any mistake I might have made in translating it! So please don't quote it anywhere. Thx.)

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur

Yes Esther went to the Starbucks autograph session You bet she wouldn't miss it for the world! I was at the draw ceremony - Kei drew his own name - and went to the autograph session after. Must say that I'm very impressed with Kei. He's extremely sweet and upbeat, even when he's obviously ridiculously tired (he kept suppressing yawns throughout).

Will post some photos in the picture thread!

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur

Kei's match vs Bagdatis should start at 6 p.m. Malaysian time, which is in about two hours!
I have to run so I can see the match from the first set!

Good luck Kei!

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur


I came home like about 30 minutes ago and, without seeing the result/scores, was searching for live streaming in case the match was still going on.....to no avail....

Is that true that Kei had taping on his wrist? Please no injury again!

Re: 2010 Asian Hardcourt Swing! 1st Stop: Kuala Lumpur

Kei was sick according to the tournament facebook. (Courtesy of myamya on GM. Thx!)

[i]Kei was sick sadly but was actually quite heroic to actually complete his match. He probably should not have played.[/b]

So at least it seems it's not another injury.
Hope he'll fare better in Tokyo next week!!
