Re: Kei Nishikori

*Bunny* so jealous.

I've been there the last two years and have holiday next week so should have applied for tickets and gone. First time since 2005 I won't be at Roland Garros.

Have lots of fun and enjoy it. Roland garros is awesome.

Hopefully I will be able to get out of my French exam on time to follow Kei on livescore. .

Dick Norman BEL vs Jan Hernych CZE (20)
Schukin could be a tough one i reckon...

Re: Kei Nishikori

I was so nervous at the first set.
I left my French exam without talking to any friends, got home to see he hadn't even started So I hanged around for a bit and kept checking scoreboard. And then the first set I had a heart attack and turned the computer off and decided to study some English for tomorrow. I only just nervously turned my computer on.

So glad he's through and keep it up.

Re: Kei Nishikori

it's all over for Kei ...at this years RG

when i first saw the draw i was actually most worried abt Greul. then i check his ATP stats...he was ranked in the 70s before.

But Kei should win these matches...maybe he wasn't as calm since he was expected to win as the no.5 seed

Re: Kei Nishikori

I think this is an awful decision to play here.

Ok, the draw may be weak, but I would prefer him to be preparing himself for the Grass, it can take some time to adjust to. He has Surbiton next week.

Also I fear this means he won't come to Nottingham if he plays RG Quallies - Turkey - Surbiton - Queens, I doubt he would want a 5th consecutive week before Wimbledon.
