Update On U.S. Men's Clay Court Tournament

By Kselz @TennisFixation

I'm still driving for the U.S. Men's Clay Court Tournament. Who knew driving a Lexus for 6 to 7 hours a day could be so exhausting?
I did get to watch a little bit of tennis yesterday. I saw the end of the Kei Nishikori vs. Franco Skugor match. This was a hard one for me - I was supporting Skugor because I had driven him and that is the only requirement for me to be your fan at this tournament - that you've been in my car. But I also wanted to see Nishikori win because:

  • he's an up and coming player from Japan, currently ranked No. 61;
  • he's working to raise money for the recent tsunami disaster victims in Japan, check it out here - Kei Nishikori - Help Japan; and
  • he wears Uniqlo tennis wear which I posted about here - Uniqlo Gets Into The Tennis Game.

In the end, Nishikori took the match 6-3, 6-2.
The best part? I finally got to take some pictures! They aren't very good and I was fooling with the focus and the sounds the whole time, but here's what I got.
Nishikori set up for a return:

Obviously, I am not a professional photographer. I'm going to try and take some video today if I can turn off the sound on my Flip. That may beyond my technical capabilities, however. We'll see.
