Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

He reached final in Memphis

1R Marchenko 6-4 7-5
2R Young 6-3 6-3 (He isn't Kei's Nemesis anymore I think)
QF Cilic 6-4 6-2 (against Cilic 3-2)
SF Matosevic 6-4 ret.

Final opponent is Feliciano Lopez. Probably it'll be tough match.

Feli has huge serve with lefty can play S&V, uses slice well and his game suits for indoor HC so he isn't good match-up for Kei.

Good luck

Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

Very happy for Kei and his supporters!

Maybe Kei's hungry for more matches, but Im not too concerned with his performance in Delray, as long as he maintains his fitness level.

Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

Indian Wells draw

1R Bye
2R Tursunov/Petzschner
3R Dolgopolov
4R Murray

I'm bored with this draw It's similar to Brisbane.

2R was qualifier and qualifier but both of them are little tricky opponents for early round.

Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

Thanks for posting Kei's side of the draw, kiriri.
It is kinda dull to see him play the same players so soon.
But if he gets to play Murray and stay fit, I'd love to watch that match.

@Chip & Charge, thats awesome!
What's the racquet model, is it Kei's current one?

Yeah it's his current one, I'm so happy that I won it - Wilson shipped it over from the US and it got to me in about 4 days

Re: Kei's 2013 Season - Australian winter

Sweet, it's a pretty cool racquet if you put some good strings in it
The only tennis related prize I've won was a pair of sunnies from a Roland garros comp years back.

Kei won his first match today in straights, he'll play Berlocq in the next round.
I couldn't really watch the match properly cause I was at work, but I saw the stats at the end and both players had more UES than winner, Kei had like 20 UES to about 10 winners, not very good percentages.
Hope he'll improve soon enough and do well here.

So disappointed with the Berlocq result - quite a few journalists commented on his physical state and questioned if he is recovered from the abdominal injury. Hope he comes back strong and if he isn't fully fit then sort it out, no point playing at 50%/75% and turning in results like this
