The umpire gaffe story I posted above has been updated. Kei said he would probably have gone crazy too if the umpire made the same mistake as he did to Falla.

http://www.espnstar.com/home/news/de...e-costs-Falla/

[...]

It was an unfortunate end to an otherwise thrilling match that spanned 2 hours and 8 minutes. The drama means that Nishikori’s miraculous comeback from 0-3 down in the second will also be quickly forgotten. But Nishikori’s form in the second set was highly encouraging and he managed to show that the fight from the death against Marin Cilic was not a flash in the pan.

After the match, Nishikori said the way the match ended was unfortunate: "I thought I had hit the ball out at 0-15 and the line umpire also confirmed that. But the chair umpire announced 15-all and I asked him about it at 15-30. When he confirmed the score I thought maybe I was confused but by the time it came to Deuce, Falla and I both realised an error had been made. Then the umpire said it is already Deuce and there is nothing he can do about changing the score. Of course, had I been in the same position as him (Falla), I would probably have gone crazy as well. It was a sad end to a great game."

For a tennis enthusiast, the game had plenty of memorable moment’s right through the opening two sets. With both players not having a big serve to give themselves an advantage, the match was a real baseline-to-baseline slugfest, with plenty of winners from forehand and backhand. The one positive thing that can be taken out of this game is that when Janko Tipsarevic faces Nishikori in the quarterfinal, a long, exhausting match will be eagerly expected.

I hope Kei would have enough gas out of his tank for this match. I have been reading some articles regarding the preview on this match, it will surely be a battle of the baseliner.

Good luck Kei, i hope you have a great start and win this match!

Kaya mo yan! (You can do it!)

To Tipsarevic: nah...just play ;-)

Always try livescorehunter, Rafkei.
Don't know which one on the site works today yet.
Bet365 is not showing it.

Ivan on GM posted about a rumour that Kei may withdraw...
He gave no sourse. Hope it's just a hoax.

They are now practicing.

Sorry I may be quieter than usual (maybe good for the board ) because I want to see Rafa vs Kolya too so I will try running two streaming. My PC will probably run only one streaming though...

Good luck, Kei!!!!

1-0*

Very good hold from 0-30 down and deuce.
Nice aggressive play in the forecour, S&V at times, and his FH is working really well already. Clearly he's not willing to make another slow start.
