According to Kei's blog, it's very chilly in Charlotteville---6 degree C! Of course they play indoors, but he wrote that he feels a little discomfort in his elbow probably because of the cold weather. Hope it's not recurrence of the injury! :unsure:

He also wrote the courts are extremely fast and it's difficult to break the opponent's serve when the guy is serving big, which seems to have been the case with the first match. In the first set, Kei broke at 6-5 and took the set 7-5. In the second set, he was a break up but then got broken back, and he broke again at 6-5.
He says the field is very strong for this level, with the likes of Dent and Devvarman, but his goal for this week is to win the tournament.
Hope he can do it! GOOD LUCK, KEI!!!! :rocker2:

Kei won 6-4 6-2! :D

I was expecting a Kei-Harrison QF but apparently Harrison lost so Kei will play local WC Michael Shabaz, who is studying at University of Virginia and is therefore going to get a lot of support from the crowd. The guy must be good to reach QF by beating the younger Lapentti and Harrison, but I hope Kei can beat him!

This is what Shabaz said of Kei.

Shabaz should be more familiar with his next opponent -- Nishikori. They came up the junior ranks together.

"He's a little younger than me, but obviously a very good talent," Shabaz said. "He beat [Marin] Cilic this year at the U.S. Open, so he can play.

"I mean, the guys at this level are all pretty damned good."

Shabaz included.

They met once at a junior tournament in South Carolina, and Shabaz won 6-1 6-3. But that was in 2003, when Shabaz was 16 and Kei 13. Hope Kei can win this time! :)
