Re: 2011 Clay Court Season: Houston here we come!
I'm rather nervous about this final, there're so much on the line for both players.
I know Kei leads the h2h 4-0, including a challenger final on clay. But the last encounter was more even and Ryan have some more wins over bigger names so he should be striking the ball with confidence.
It's understandable the home crowd's support will be for Ryan, hopefully Kei can perform well to earn their respect.
