Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

According to Kei's blog, he will be able to start practicing tomorrow. (Meaning he will probably play DC...part of me am glad he'll play but another part of me says he should skip DC because he will be forced to play three rubbers again and likely get yet another injury!)

Apparently, the back injury sarted with a pain in his left leg in Winston Salem, and it got worse on Saturday before USO. It seems he's feeling pretty down because he get so many injuries one after another and he's also not very happy with his tennis recently. Hope he can find the way to get fitter and better...

An Interview With: Kei Nishikori
Monday, August 29, 2011

Q. So what was it? Injury?


Q. Lower?

KEI NISHIKORI: Lower back. Yeah, muscle.

Q. Were you feeling it from the start, or did it just sort of come on all of a sudden?

KEI NISHIKORI: It started Saturday, two days ago. I practiced in the morning and start hurting, and I stopped practice and got better yesterday a little bit. Beginning was okay today, but the pain was increasing every point, and, yeah, I had to retire.

Q. Do you think it's travel related or just do you know where it came from?

KEI NISHIKORI: Played six match last week in Winston Salem. Then I got a little bit tired. I think that's from last week.

Q. Second year in a row you've had an injury here. It must be kind of disappointing.

KEI NISHIKORI: Yeah. Yeah, I can't excuse. Yeah, it's tough for me, but it's not that bad this injury, so I hope I can get back in one week or two weeks.

Q. That very long match, what did that mean to you last year, the experience you got here, making that run, having that one match? That was a tough match.

KEI NISHIKORI: Yeah, last year was great, great moment for me. Got a lot of confidence after getting injury after one year rest and beating Cilic. That was really big for me. But it was just unfortunately I got injury. I didn't have much time from last week, so that was, I think, the problem. Yeah, I was very happy to play this year US Open. I always play good on here so it's disappointing, but hopefully come back next year good.

Q. Do you think maybe you should've maybe not played Winston Salem because it was so close? Why did you initially think that was a good tournament?

KEI NISHIKORI: I mean, I wasn't gonna play, but I had injury my shoulder. Before Cincinnati one month I couldn't play the other US Open Series, so that's why I want play some matches before this tournament.


Take a good rest, Kei!

Bad day for Japanese tennis.
Kei, Ayumi and Misaki all retired, and Go lost 1, 3 and 0 to Anderson.

Poor Misaki Doi had to leave the court in a wheelchair after she hurt right thigh (cramp?) when leading 2-6 7-6(12) *2-0. She fought until 2-5 in the third set but then she couldn't move.

Morita had a shoulder problem and retired after taking medical time out before the second set.

It would be funny if Kimiko, with a broken little finger on her right hand, becomes the only winner in R1!

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

He's so injury prone

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

4-6 2-6 and Kei retires...

Better to quit now than aggravate the injury...

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

OMG, I can't believe he is losing to this guy. Why I bet on this loser?

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

According to a Japanese TV commentator on courtside, Kei's physical trainer said he's been having a back problem for a few days...

OMG. Kei

Cipolla breaks with an amazing volley returning Kei's drop shot.

And Kei called's his back.

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

DF #5 0-30...

It seems Kei's a bit concerned about his shoulder...??

O dear 0-40.

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!


Good hold. But it's a bit too early to hit your fourth DF already, Kei!

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

No hole in Cipolla's game so far.

Kei's FH looks like it's not as explosive as before.

Re: Kei's US Open Campaign 2011!

Kei holds the 1st game of the second set.

Winners/UE in the first set
Kei: 3/3, Cipolla 1/2
