Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

It's past midnight in my place and Ferru and Feli are still playing in Barca.
It's a very high-quality match and I'm enjoying watching it, I'm also looking forward to the Rafa-Tipsy match,
but I don't know if I can stay up for Kei... I gotta work tomorrow!

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

It's past 1am here, I tried to take a nap so I can stay up to watch Kei's match later but not feeling sleepy yet.
At least I don't have work tomorrow, if they schedule all of Kei's match around 10pm will be perfect for me!

Playing Nando on his home turf will be extra tough.
Kei's gotten better since their last meeting and Nando is finding some form again, I sense a very close match...hopefully it's at least competitive.

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

Agree with you, chewy, it will be a tough match for sure. Nando is getting back into form and he's playing home. Hope Kei can somehow find the way to pull it through though!

Rafa vs Tipsy over, Kei vs Nando very soon to start. And I'm still here!
But I will watch the match on my iPhone in my bed (too tired to sit up) so I probably won't be able to post. Nighty night everyone and let's hope Kei will win!

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

Kei had to retire down 2-4, he was touching his left hip and had the trainer out after just 5 games.

Have to wait for more news on this tomorrow, what a horrible way to end his campaign in Barcelona.

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

Ouch. (I just came out of the bed. )

I think it's abdominal, the trainer was pressing his belly.
It looked he couldn't hit BH or serve. He seemed to be in a lot of pain...
Hope the injury won't take long to heal...!

Yes you're right, it should be the abdomen regions.
Injuries are 1000x worst than any tough losses...hope Kei can recover and stay healthy

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

From FB.

Hi everyone…thanks for all the messages of support. Injured my stomach during my last match in Barcelona. Seeing doctors this week and will see how long the healing takes. Madrid and Rome are going to be out for sure. Will keep everyone posted in the next weeks on how things go. Thanks for the support.

Hope he can play RG...

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

More update:

Hi everyone…little update. Heard from the doctors and they are saying 2 to 3 weeks for recovery of the stumoch muscle. I will go back bnext week for another check-up and will have more info then.

Glad to hear the injury is not a long-term one although I won't believe it 100% until I see him play again! (Remember how his elbow injury started in 2009? First they said it would take a few weeks to heal, then a few more weeks, months and it took more than six months for him to even have a surgery...!)
Even in the best case scenario Kei probably won't be able to start practice for two-three weeks. Japan is supposed to play WTC in Dusseldorf a week before RG. I reckon the plan was to make a team with Kei, Soeda and Ito. But now I wonder if Kei will be fit enough to play RG let allone WTC...

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

Thanks for posting the news bunny, things happen out of the blue, out of our control.
I hope Kei will take extra care with any injuries to fully recover before playing, even if he has to miss RG

Re: Playing On the Dirt - On to Monte Carlo

I agree. It would sucked if he has to miss another GS (French Open) after doing so well in the Australian Open but if he needs more time to heal his injury then so be it. I just hope Kei and his team won't rush his recovery.

Go Air Kei!
