Yes it's official Berdych out. Machado on the way.

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Hola, Barcelona!

Thanks again for the updates guys.

I checked for streams for both his 1st and 2nd match but without success so I thought he was placed on the outside courts. Well, they would possibly show the next match since both players are considered higher profile.

The draw's been kind so far, hope he can get past F. Lopez.

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Hola, Barcelona!

ORDER OF PLAY - THURSDAY, 21 APRIL, 2011

PISTA CENTRAL start 11:00 am
[1] B Bryan (USA) / M Bryan (USA) vs F Cermak (CZE) / A Ram (ISR)
Not Before 1:30 PM
V Hanescu (ROU) vs [4] D Ferrer (ESP)
[1] R Nadal (ESP) vs S Giraldo (COL)
[8] N Almagro (ESP) vs N Davydenko (RUS)
F Lopez (ESP) vs K Nishikori (JPN)


I wanted the match to take place later but not this late! It will be like 3 a.m. my time!

Anyway, good luck Kei!


From ATP:
[...] Kei Nishikori continued his push to become the highest-ranked Japanese player in the history of the South African Airways ATP Rankings, defeating Portuguese lucky loser Rui Machado 6-1, 6-4 to book his place in the third round. Nishikori is currently two spots back of Shuzo Matsuoka’s career-high ranking of No. 46, achieved in 1992, and could move into the low 40s with a deep run in Barcelona this week.

Nishikori, a finalist earlier this month at the clay-court tournament in Houston, will next play Spain’s Feliciano Lopez, who knocked out 12th-seeded countryman Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-7(2), 6-3, 6-4.

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Hola, Barcelona!

I suppose Kei feels pressure of this "Project 45" shit... He thinks about it too much. He feel duty... Or I don't know, but I think he does.

Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Hola, Barcelona!

Kei's 2nd service points won in this match so far: 11/11 = 100%

...but that means he's losing more points on his first serve.

*2-2
