I thought for sure he would lose after letting his 2 set lead slip away, and then when he let it get back to 5-5 in the fifth (And also his first match point, a swinging volley he didn't do enough with). He proved me wrong though, congrats Kei on a great fight.

i was in japan a few days ago and saw a poster with kei on it for sony and got really excited because i knew the us open was about to start and i had a feeling he would do pretty well in it.
im really regretting though not taking a picture of it...
