He is, but Lu's game doesn't translate well on clay...and Kei's more of an all surface player.

Man what a beauty, that punch volley from Kei, he's seeing the ball very well.

Just when Kei picks up his 1st serve, Lu's drop under 50%...why can't they both play at high level together!!

Kei's shotmaking is getting a lot of from the crowd LOL

Yeah Kei is more of a shotmaker and is probably a better player on clay but Rendy hits so hard (sometimes a bit too hard) it's making Kei a bit more defensive than he probably likes to be.

But why does Adidas want to put green in just about every clothes they make, be it blue or red?

Re: 2011 Roland Garros

Lu managed to break Kei's serve twice so far in the 2nd set. Kei needs to concentrate more to close it out.

Re: 2011 Roland Garros

Return winner and Kei takes the second set 6-3.
It was a lot closer than the scoreline...Lu is playing very aggressively.

Bathroom break for Kei?

Re: 2011 Roland Garros

3 bps chances gone...this game is too funny...both missing opportunities.

Finally Kei bags the 2nd set.

This is a treat for me nonetheless, they are the current top 2 asian players in the world.

Even if both's on form, I'll favor Kei's chances more no matter which surface they play on.
But...Lu's a fighter...and he does hits pretty big shots sometimes.

I hope not, if he can't last 3 sets against Lu on clay... for tennis sake, he must win
