Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

Yeah another win and in straight sets.
Several clean drop shot winners fro Kei and he did well in BPs, PHM threw in a lot of UEs though.

Can't wait for the next round.

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

This loss to Berdych was so frustrating, I was speechless after match and needed time to accept it

THERE IS NO SIGNATURE HERE.

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

1 set all.

Saw the match from 2-2 in the second set, after Kei lost an early break. Somehow Kei seems a bit tentative and slow to react to Kuku's shots. I don't really understand it. Kei had a BP when Kuku was serving at 4-4, but he shanked the ball and that was it.
Raise up your game in the 3rd set, Kei!!

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

Kei saves from 15-40 down!
He's making lots of UEs though. Doesn't seem to be in a good rhythm.
