Kei broke back so the 2nd Set is 1 all. It was Kei's first break.

Murray won the 2nd Set 6-3. Next update after the 3rd Set. I think if Kei was not so tired this Match would be a lot different!

Kei seemed to jam his toe so he put on another sock. This came in the 2nd game of the 3rd Set with Murray leading 1 to 0.

And now what are we watching on TV instead of the Match? Roger and Rocket Rod talking with the commentators--grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

And now that we finally get through Roger and Rocket Rod plus commercials it is 4-1 Murray in the 3rd Set.

I'm very proud of Kei More than anything he just ran out of gas after all those 5 set Matches!

Re: Australian 2012 Hard court season - Tearing it up at the Australian open

still very proud of Kei, i saw the match, Kei looks really tired at some of the points.

i'll take this on a positive and say Murray got lucky that Kei just got tired on all those 5 sets matches plus the mixed doubles match.

this will be a great year for Kei!!!

Go Air Kei!

Re: Australian 2012 Hard court season - Tearing it up at the Australian open

Thank you Mae!
Again I watched parts muted at work, find myself clapping at one point :P
Andy looks like he had plenty in his tank, comfortable in many rallies.
But Kei showed signs of brilliance as well Overall a great start to the season after a very good finish last year.

Agree with you kinokino, Kei's given us many matches to cheer about in the past couple of months.
Lets all focus on the positives and hope for a great year for Kei and his team.
