Naturally I was disappointed too, as a Kei supporter I believe he had a realistic chance to the SF but Janko displayed what it takes to get there, a good learning experience for Kei and a QF showing is ok in my book :P
It's fun to watch him mature as a tennis player!

Now about the exho, the website does seem a little sloppy for the quality of players and the size of the event. Both the content and the design, hope they will improve it.
I'm just spoiled for choice in Januaury, it's almost like I'm overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of events in Aust and around the world...wish I can have the whole month off like when I was still in school.

Yeah we've been spoiled for choice these past two weeks, but the annoying thing is most events take place during my work time (we're 1-2 hours behind Australia)!
Actually my choice for Sunday was that hilarious exo with Safin/Rendy and Agassi/Wang. Loved it! Rendy really seems to be very very popular in Taiwan. I guess he's bigger there than what Kei is in Japan. And that Wang was Jimmy Wang, right? I remember seeing him play in Tokyo. He was pretty good!

Couldn't agree more, but sometimes a hard day's work makes it more enjoyable

And yes it's Jimmy Wang or Yeu-Tzuoo Wang the name on my sig. It's been a long time since I've watched him play, the exho was fun as it suppose to be, but now I want to see them play in some serious matches.

Life's unpredictable, apparently the WTC facebook admin is till hoping he'll return on Wednesday or maybe the final day? Don't think that's possible...

Not that it makes it easier, but at least this is not a career threatening injury / illness. It's just extremely unfortunate if he has appendicitis but he should make a full recovery.

I'm hoping for the best...

Guys, call me supersticious but... Kei have to visit some temple or wiseman... It's like someone put an evil eye on him (if you know what i mean) In our culture we believe in evil eye don't laugh at me. But... it's beyond of normal... Sorry if you think it's ridiculous

It was me who asked they about Kei on facebook... I asked Brad on twitter and he answered:

he was not feeling well tonight little under the weather
He didn't say it's appendicitis but he didn't say it's not...

Wow so it's Yeu-Tzuoo!! Great to see him playing again. He's been very unlucky with injuries, right?

And Dana, GJ with facebook and twitter!
Actually, Hide Sakamoto, who was with Kei in India wrote on his twitter that he's been suffering from stomach bug. I hope it's the same with Kei too. When I was a kid I myself was told by a doctor I might have appenditicis, turned out it was just a bad cold!

From Kei's facebook:

Hi everyone...a quick update…I started feeling very ill while flying to Adelaide. In Adelaide the stomach pain worsened and doctors feared it was appendicitis. The first tests came back last night and at this point the doctors have ruled out appendicitis. They think it was a severe reaction to something I ate. Feeling a little better this morning. Will keep you guys posted.

A big relief!
Hope he will get better soon and 100% fit by AO!

And from Brad's twitter 11 minutes ago!

Hitting some balls with Kei, he's feeling better. Doc thinks he may have got a bad bug on the way here. We'll see how it goes.
