Depends on how far he can go at Indy, might be better than 350

Last year's US Open qualifying Singles cutoff was: Eric Nunez - 275.
Its not out of the question.

no idea abt the shoulders. I wouldn't think too much of it, its common for tennis pros esp if their body is still developing.

btw, the short vid you mentioned before. does it show Kei's game? If so, can you share it here? thankz

Re: Kei Nishikori

Nice win Kei. Keep it up.

Berrer has got to be a winnable match.

Re: Kei Nishikori

It's not really a bandwagon... he won one match.
Bandwagon was when Serena and Martina returned, or Novak won Miami.

Go Kei!! Beat Berrer tomorrow!

Re: Kei Nishikori

2006 QUALIFYING ENTRY DEADLINE: JULY 31

so i think his ranking after this tournament will be it. its very good efford to get inside top 300, Tursunov(in good form) will be another level from Berrer. Tough ask for Kei, but nothings impossible.

Re: Kei Nishikori

For the US Open?
I know the WTA entry lists have already been done, not sure if that means qualifying too...
Hoping for the best for Kei!!
