Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

It was a little discouraging how he lost the last match to Monaco.

But this is a fresh start, do you best Kei!!!

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

MTF was down.

And Kei is a break down 3-4*

Cipolla broke first to *2-1 then Kei immediately broke back 2-2.
But just now Cipolla broke again. He's shorter than Kei, but like many petite-size players he's quick, smart and has many shots, his best weapon being BH slice.

C'mon Kei, you can win this!

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

Kei really need to turn his serve into a weapon during the off-season

SP to Cipolla. The guy's playing really well...Kei must find out why he's ranked #108!

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

*1-1
No hole in Cipolla's game so far.

Kei's FH looks like it's not as explosive as before.

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

2-1*

Good hold. But it's a bit too early to hit your fourth DF already, Kei!

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

DF #5 0-30...

It seems Kei's a bit concerned about his shoulder...??

O dear 0-40.

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

Cipolla breaks with an amazing volley returning Kei's drop shot.

And Kei called trainer...it's his back.
