Re: Kei is seeded! US Winter HC season starts in San Jose

I didn't see the match but my friends from russian forums did. They say Smyszek played incredibly good, it was definetely his day, everything he did worked good, and in the end of the match Kei was mentally exhausted because he couldn't turn Smyszek off.

I'd say it was unlucky day for Kei.

Re: Kei is seeded! US Winter HC season starts in San Jose

Thanx, Dana, yeah I saw similar comments on Japanese boards too. And actually Kei lost to Smyzcek in LA qualies last year, in straight sets. So, although Kei beat the American in Sarasota as well, the guy is probably not a good match up for Kei.
Well, now he has enough time to travel to Memphis qualies! Wish him better luck there although the field will be stronger.

Re: Kei is seeded! US Winter HC season starts in San Jose

Kei wrote in his blog that it was horrible and nothing worked for him today.
He tried till the end but no matter how he hits it didn't go in.
He now thinks he needed to be calmer. The opponent had good defence and however hard Kei attacked he only made mistakes. He couldn't find his game and he really felt down but there's nothing he can do so he wil focus on the next step. He will go to Memphis tomorrow, and he will do his best and change his mindset.


Memphils qualifying draw to be announced at 9 p.m. local time.
Hope he'll have a good draw and qualify!

Re: Kei is seeded! US Winter HC season starts in San Jose

Thanks for the reports guys, at least now I know Smyszek played well. I saw some of Smyszek's first match and he was ok.

But I can't deny how extremely disappointed I am, having waited all week to watch him play on the weekend cause he's always scheduled 5am in the morning Aust time. And I really thought the draw is quite open for him to succeed here.

Somehow I had a feeling it will be an upset even though Kei was the favourite.

Re: US Winter HC season continues in Memphis!

Seems like it was quite a battle. Good on Kei for hanging in there and turning it around.

Re: US Winter HC season continues in Memphis!

no potential for a LL spot??
or, it may be good to have a break...so that he can regroup till the next tourney in Florida.

Re: US Winter HC season continues in Memphis!

Probably no chance for a LL unless someone breaks his leg...!

3-6 1-6. Strange score, there must be something gong on either in his head or body from R2 in San Jose against Smyzcek. He was seen rubbing his arm and also sweating profusely in San Jose, but then he didn't call a trainer. And then barely beating Bogolomov Jr. whom he beat more easily many times and losing to Hajek, whom he beat 6-1 7-6 only five days before... OK, Hajek might have employed a better strategy vs Kei, but Kei isn't someone who has no Plan B when he's playing well.
Hope this slump or what ever is just for a short spell.

Re: US Winter HC season continues in Memphis!

Thanx, chewy!
Let's hope his return to Delray Beach is a much better one than last year!

He's back in Bradenton, according to facebook. Hope he'll have a good rest and practice to get ready again.
