Default The grass Court Season - Next up Eastbourne Qualies

The grass court season gets under way next week and first up for Kei is Queens.

After a tough first round loss to Richard Gasquet in Queens Kei is moving on this week to Eastbourne

here's a look at Kei's qualifying draw, with thanks to Bunny for the info:


(3) KUNITSYN, Igor RUS v SLABINSKY, Alexander GBR
(WC) BURTON, Lewis GBR v GOODALL, Joshua GBR
CAVADAY, Nick GBR v MORGAN, George GBR
LEWIS, Haydn BAR v (5) NISHIKORI, Kei JPN

Dont really know to much about either of the first 2 matches for Kei but Kei really should qualify here

Tough first round. Kei lost to Gasquet 1-6 2-6 at Japan Open in 2008. I saw the match live and Kei was completely outplayed. He said after the match that he had too much respect for Gasquet and couldn't play his game.
This time I think he will approach the match in a different mindset. Of course it doesn't mean he has lost respect for Richard, but he will go out on court to win the match!

During RG, Kei was asked on Japanese TV which surface he liked most, and his answer was grass. He used to say it's clay or hard court, and he admitted his answer changes almost every day. But it's great he has positive attitude towards all surfaces and is looking forward to playing on grass.

Default Re: The grass Court Season - First up Queens

I remembered that Kei played a great match against Nadal in Queen 2008, after that match, Nadal paid a compliment to kei because Kei played so well and caught many difficulties for him
Hope Kei is able to show his form on grass,

Hey Thomas! long time no post hope all's well.

I like how Kei's attitude towards the surface changes as they come...that just show how much he enjoy this sport.
Tough draw but I really want to see where he stands against these players so I can't wait for his first match on grass.

I can't pick anyone to root for here, so I just hope it's a good match. It has every ingredient to become one.

What its Gasquet? Indeed another tough draw for Kei.

Was able to watch Gasquet vs Murray at FG and i was really impressed on how good his ground strokes was. He might just overpower Kei yet again. But anything can happen though.

Good luck Kei!
