Hello kiriri, thanks for posting Kei's section (lots of spaces TBC, :D )
1st round starting soon, against a young qualifier - Nishikori vs Andreozzi

Can't underestimate any player that survived the quallies, even though Kei is the clear favourite here. Do your best Kei!

Hello bee, I watched the match up till the rain delay in the third.
Not much to comment on this match, pretty much went according to plan I would say except for mother nature's interruption.

My poor recollection aside, I think Kei was up 5-0 before losing the one and only game in the first set.
Nothing overly impressive by either player, but I thought Guido Andreozzi played alright for his first major debut. He's got the bigger serve and hit more aces(but also more DFs), and on occasion out hit Kei in the rallies.

Kei with more experience, played the stats with a smarter game and got the job done in straights.
But I thought he wasn't returning well, so hopefully it gets better in round 2.

Next faces Tim Smyczek of USA which Kei has a losing record against...yikes!
Commanding a more solid performance from Kei!

PS. The stats page from US OPEN site is pretty neat, especially the momentum graph, didn't notice it before...

Hi Chewy, thanks for all that :) i'm glad that Kei won in straight sets, rather than the usual lose a set and then having to fight hard to win the match (AO12, he nearly made me go insane lol). i guess sometimes it's frustrating watching Kei play, because he is so full of surprises haha.

ahh a losing record...Hopefully Kei's returning gets better and he plays well *fingers crossed*

ooh nicee! the momentum graph is actually pretty cool,thanks :)

It was a fairly rountine win, his 1st and 2nd round was against players ranked outside 150 so it's expected from him... Although we're probably still getting used to it :D
This is how it should be now that he's seeded, spend less time on court in the early stages and have more left in the tank against the big guns (might be Cilic next).

The result consist of Smyczek making quite a lot of errors and Kei managed to stay focus for 3 straight sets!
