Re: 2011 Grass Season: Kei in Queen's Club!
 
As you guys are aware, Kei beat Querrey in epic fashion in Delray Beach SF three years ago, saving 3 MPs.
Hope he can repeat the feat, especially since Querrey is not having a very good season. But he's the defending champion so he'll be confident on the fast grass at Queen's.

But Kei arrived early at the club and has been practicing almost all week. He has practiced with Dimitrov, Harrison and Greg Jones, according to his blog.

Good luck, Kei! :cheerleader: :cheerleader: :cheerleader:

Really had to convert one of those seven break points! :(

*4-4 second set. Don't get broken here!

Re: 2011 Grass Season: Kei in Queen's Club!
 
3-6 4-6 :o :sad: :(

Must be pretty frustrating defeat, but he had some chances and had to take them.
Better luck in Eastbourne!

I tried several streamings but they were constantly buffering or down. :(

Re: 2011 Grass Season: Kei in Queen's Club!
 
Kei will play qualifier in R1 at Eastbourne.
Potential R2 vs Stakhovsky again!
Hope Kei can revenge this time but Sergyi's serve would be even more dangerous on grass...

Anyway, good luck, Kei!

STEPANEK, Radek CZE vs FLEMING, Colin GBR
NISHIKORI, Kei JPN vs 6 QUALIFIER/SPECIAL EXEMPT
