He said he was feeling very tired today, and it was a tough match.
Shuzo Matsuoka was the oncourt interviewer, and he asked Kei whether he knew the rule about bathroom breaks, that he can take only one such break in a match, and Kei said he didn't know!
Then he was asked about his next opponent, and first he said he was only thinking about the first round, but then he went on to say GGL is a good stroker and is expecting a tough match.

Indoor conditions usually benefit big servers because there's no wind or sun to effect the tossing, and I think today was no exception. Kendrick was serving really well! I think Kei lost the scond set tie break because he dragged into TB the disappointment of failing to break Kendrick despite having 0-30 at 6-5*.
But he really raised his game in the third set. He really looked happy and relieved after the match.

At first glance, Kei has grown up very much since last year(P1,2). After the warm-up, he took a bathroom break(P3,4). Kendrick's serve was very fast while Kei played very aggressive(P5). After the second round, Kei wanted a bathroom break but it was not allowed It was breathtaking seesaw match as Mr. Matsuoka watches(P6). Kei broke two games in the third round and got the first victory in AIG open!
Keep going, Kei

Not an ideal end to the second set, but he rebounded nicely. Good luck in the next round, Kei.

Thanx for the report and pics, Kinokino!
I like Shuzo's serious look.
He's a bit of a comedian when he opens his mouth you know!

It's going to be a busy day tomorrow.
Kei vs GGL is the third match on centre court again, but there will be seven matches on the court tomorrow! It could be midnight if some of them go to the distance.

Yung-Jan CHAN (TPE) vs Anabel MEDINA GARRIGUES (ESP)
David FERRER (ESP) vs Jesse LEVINE (USA)
Kei NISHIKORI (JPN) vs Guillermo GARCIA-LOPEZ (ESP)
Richard GASQUET (FRA) vs Martin SLANAR (AUT)
Ivo MINAR (CZE) vs Andy RODDICK (USA)
Dudi SELA (ISR) vs Juan Martin DEL POTRO (ARG)
Yen-Hsun LU (TPE) vs Fernando GONZALEZ (CHI)

The rain may stop in the afternoon tomorrow, but other matches (including the ones with the likes of Tsonga, Robredo, Youzhny, Berdych, Suzuki! etc.) will be played at another venue, without spectators, wihch I think is outrageous! Sure it's better to change the venue than just waiting for the rain to stop, but they need to find some way to accommodate spectators! Not that I will leave the centre court but there must be a few people who'd like to see those players!
