LOL...thx bunny, I think Lu will need more luck than Kei :P

Slams are always more exciting and this match up makes it even more interesting for me! :cheerleader:
Although it's better if it's on another surface since Lu's record on clay is... :o.

Anyway, no complaints from me with this year's draw...just pray that Kei will stay healthy and he can do well!

PS. They made a typo with Yen-Hsun Lu

Cheers bunny. :)

Another reason I like RG is the time difference between Paris and Sydney is just perfect for me to get home from work for the first match. Hopefully most of the ones I want to see are scheduled earlier in the day.

Actually, around 1pm would be most ideal...:P

It's perfect time for me too. It's past 6 p.m. Sunday now here in Tokyo and Kei and Rendy are practicing on court. :)

Nice BH winner on the first point.

Re: 2011 Roland Garros
 
:rocker2: Yeah bunny, Kei's first out of the blocks, holds to love.

I think both will give a big effort.

I'll be concentrating on watching this match so probably won't post much "P

BP to Lu...nice drop shot there... 30-40
Kei needs a first serve!

OK, deuce....and DF #2...:stupid: ...good serve. deuce.

Re: 2011 Roland Garros
 
The pressures on Kei more than Lu since he's the favourite to win this battle...

*bunny* 05-22-2011 09:28 AM

Re: 2011 Roland Garros
 
Kei holds. Phew! 2-1*

Both guys are focusing very hard from the beginning.
Kei needs more first serves though.

Re: 2011 Roland Garros
 
Yeh, very unhealthy 1st serve % from Kei. He needs to pick that up pronto!
