Thanx, Deck!
I see they are still playing doubles... but then it will be 4 a.m. my time and I really don't know if I can stay up!

Anyway, I hope Kei will have some luck with the draw god in the main draw!

I posted Kei's interview article after he won the first round of Washington qualies in the News Thread, because it covered things other than the tournament as well. Have a look.

And here's a report on his match vs Anderson:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...080102993.html

[...]

The qualifying match that drew the most interest on Sunday was between Kevin Anderson of South Africa and Kei Nishikori of Japan. That match was played on the stadium court (Kim and Devvarman played on the grandstand court).

Anderson has gained a measure of fame by going through the qualifiers to make seven ATP events this year, the most on tour.

But Nishikori advanced with a 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 victory that took 2 hours 41 minutes. Anderson's serve was hitting 135 mph in the final game. But what the serve had in power it lacked in accuracy -- it landed in at just a 58 percent rate.

And that played into Nishikori's plan to attack the second serve.

"It was a tough match," Nishikori said. "The third set was really close."

Nishikori earned his spot in tennis lore when he advanced to the round of 16 at the U.S. Open in 2008. He was the first Japanese player to do so in 71 years.

But Nishikori missed much of last season with an elbow injury.

"I've come back feeing really good," he said. "Last week in L.A. I didn't play very well and I lost. This [win] will give me some confidence."

It's a realy good job from Kei to tough that one out, but way too close for comfort.
Hope his game come together soon, his comments sounds positive.

A nice chance for a win there. Kei beat Igor in Eastbourne last month, so lets hope for a repeat!
