Re: London Olympics

http://2012.itftennis.com/olympics/s...edule.aspx?d=2

Court 18
Start: 11:30
Bernard TOMIC (AUS) V Kei NISHIKORI (JPN) [15]
Silvia SOLER ESPINOSA (ESP) V Heather WATSON (GBR)
Lleyton HEWITT (AUS) V Sergiy STAKHOVSKY (UKR)

I'm sure there will be the Aussie Fanatics in the stand!
Good luck, Kei!

He was walking at the very rear of the Japanese athletes during the Opening Ceremony. He looked really happy and enjoying himself.
The camera on Japanese TV (NHK this time) zoomed up his face a couple of times but the ignorant reporters didn't mention his name.

Re: London Olympics

Hmm Kei's UE count is already high I think, compared to when he's playing well.
Still on serve. *1-2
