Hey just saw the draw and Kei will play Korolev!

He's in Soderling's section in Federer's quarter.
The first three rounds look like this. Not too bad I think. Could have been way worse!

Albert Montanes ESP (21) v Michal Przysiezny POL
Carsten Ball AUS v Milos Raonic CAN
Kei Nishikori JPN v Evgeny Korolev KAZ
Illya Marchenko UKR v Marin Cilic CRO (11)

Congrats, Kei!
Good luck in MD!!

Thank you, misty, for the scores!

Now I have one wish....that Kei won't be placed to play JCF in R1.
But now I have said it it will probably happen.

Re: U.S. Summer Hard Court Season!/LA, DC, Binghamton and now USO Qualies!

and there it is everyone

kei qualifies for the main draw!

6-4, 6-1 over dancevic

the match was close but there were 2 key games:

1. at 4-4 in the first set kei was down 15-40 but held and then broke dancevic to love to win the set

2. dancevic had 30-40 on kei's opening serve of the 2nd set but kei held and then broke to love again for 2-0. It was very nearly a baggle as kei had a chance to break frank for 3-0 but he held. From that point on though dancevic never troubled kei's service games again.

...and I'm likely to miss it again coz it's from 4 a.m. and I have to go out in the morning tomorrow!
i'll be here to give updates for you

I hope kei manages to qualify, i like frank and as a canadian you'd think i would hope for frank more but im pulling for kei just that little bit more.

frank wasnt that impressive against stephane yesterday, he let a 1-3lead in the first set become 3-6 and was nearly broken several times after missing key oppertunites himself. It seems that both him and kei tend to let up when they have leads and play better when its close so it will be interesting to see what one can bring the more consistent game today.

Kei told the Japanese media after the match he wasn't too happy with his performance, saying he tends to make errors after having a comfortable lead, and that he wants to play better and more consistently in the third round.

Dancevic in the next round will be tough too. He seems to be finding his form and he's way better than the current ranking!


Kei's best results came on hard courts too, including USO.
But from what I've read about the match here and elsewhere it seems Kudryavtsev is a kind of guy who can blow hot and cold and becomes unstoppable once he's on. Am I right? Then I can well see the danger you were talking about and I'm glad Kei managed to win in two sets!

Kei's records in TB are really good these days though!



Awww Dana, I know the feeling!
That's why I never do predictions! I simply suck at predictions and I don't want to jinx my faves!
