Re: Playing On the Dirt - 2012 South American Claycourt Swing

I think I tweeted some photos on monday of his press conferences and quotes (i translated them into spanish) and today I tweeted 1 picture of him training hitting ball.

Kei is playing unbelievably well.

Re: Playing On the Dirt - 2012 South American Claycourt Swing

he said his favourites sports outside tennis are soccer but he cant play it because of risking injuries and he practises golf but he is not as good as in tennis

I wont interview him again tomorrow (if i get a chance i will ) but i will certainly tweet his press conference and tweet a pic or two of the post-match if he wins

Re: Playing On the Dirt - 2012 South American Claycourt Swing

He is playing here to gain exp on clay and thanks to his coach Dante, who by the way is a very good friend of Gustavo Marcaccio, Pico's and Machi's coach

I just came back from the doubles, missed Bagnis vs Ferrer match ( was a blockbuster ) to watch the doubles. Kei seemed a lil bit off today in both singles and doubles.

he played well at patches but was mentally gone at times.

Re: Playing On the Dirt - 2012 South American Claycourt Swing

Thanks for the report, Ray!
Thanks also for the kind post about interview questions. Sorry I missed it in time coz I was rushing to the station exactly at that time. (Am posting this from office. )

I see. That's why he'll be playing doubles with Pico at IW!



So another day, another come back. Would've been very angry if he lost to Hanescu after beating Juanqui!

Re: Playing On the Dirt - 2012 South American Claycourt Swing

They almost won the doubles against the top seed, what a bummer >.<

I'm relieved he got pass Hanescu, I thought he could post some problems with his big serves.

Thanks for the clip FiBeR! Kei is such a cheery fellow
If you do get another chance, can you ask him if he ever check out tennis forums online?

Re: Playing On the Dirt - 2012 South American Claycourt Swing

It's past 2:20 a.m. in my place and there's no live streaming for kei vs Stan.
It's 1-1* now.

Sorry, Kei, I'm going to bed coz I gotta work tomorrow... Good luck! がんばれ~!!

im sorry i got super busy with other stuff. didnt get the chance to interview him again

he did a pretty good job here. btw kei has these guys from the japanese tv station that is sponsoring him who are following kei around the world (and some japanese fans here too)

they are making a documentary out of it and i think about his life on tour and they said that if kei made it to the sf they would broadcast atp copa claro's matches in japan but unfortunately stan was too good for kei. although i liked his chances and i think he has room for improvement and a lot of potential
