Re: Australian 2012 Hard court season - Starting in Brisbane

And the AO draw is out.
http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...s/ms/r1s2.html

Kei is in top half, Murray's quarter.
His R1 opponent is Stephane Robert. He normally plays challengers and is ranked #107 this week, but he made his name for beating Berdych at RG last year.
Then Kei may face Ebden, Simon, Tsonga, et al. Hope he can improve his result from last year! (R3)

Re: Australian 2012 Hard court season - Starting in Brisbane

Kei leads *3-0.
He has conceded only one point so far, on Robert's serve.
He's playing extremely well in the windy condition.

Go, Kei!

Re: Australian 2012 Hard court season - Starting in Brisbane

1st serve: Kei 76%, Robert 65%
Winners/UEs: Kei 6/2, Robert 3/13
Total points won: Kei 26, Robert 11

Kei is solid and also quick to attack. He's serving well too. Robert seems to be more comfortable on his BH, and Kei is attacking his FH relentlessly.
