Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Hola, Barcelona!

Why do I have a feeling that his serve let him down again?

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Hola, Barcelona!

Déjà vu for me given the parallels with Gasquet's loss earlier today

Yeah I think it puts a little extra pressure on when he's aware that the next win can complete the P45 goal.
I wish he won't get too emotional when it's completed cause he can go much further!

I stay up till about 3am but the match still haven't started by then I thought they would've delay it by a day.
Oh well, it wasn't shown live anyway. He should be winning these level of matches >.<

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Onto Belgrade!



Kei's TB record this year is getting worse and worse.
Was a tough match up, Tipsy is at home and is confident vs Kei, but I heard he had a thigh problem early in the match. Kei probably should have wrapped up in two sets... The match will be shown on TV in Japan tomorrow so I will see what happened although there's no doubt it will be edited to make Kei look good...

This is the first time on the ATP level that Kei has lost a match after winning the first set (except Wimbledon R1 in 2008 where Kei had to retire).

GL in Madrid qualifying!

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Onto Belgrade!

Kei and Zovko beat Bozoljac and Vemic 6-3 6-3.

He also withdrew from Madrid qualifying...does that mean he got WC?? Hope so!
