Thx for the thread, misty! :D

Gasquet has withdrawn from Basel, so I think Kei is in the MD.

*edit* O, wait. He will need another withdrawal. He's alt #2. Sorry!

Kei received WC for Basel! :D

But apparently he still has some pains in the ankle he sprained in Shanghai. This week he's recovered to the point that he can play two sets. ...and of course he's aware that the field is very strong in Basel. He departed from Bradenton on Thursday, changing flights at Atlanta and Paris, and then onto Basel. Maybe he's still flying right now. Hope he can have some rest onboard and his ankle will get better!

good to see he got a wild card

the extra rest of not having to play qualies will hopefully help

hopefully he gets a draw where winning a round or 2 is possible

Winners/UEs: Kei 22/12, Berdych 30/33

Only watched the third set from 1-1 but Kei's winners down the line were impressive. And his effective second serve! Never thought the day would come I say so. lol
