‪A quick thanks to @theory__! Thanks for dressing me for tonight’s event!‬


First of all I want to wish @delpotrojuan a speedy recovery. He had an amazing year. Second I am very excited to join the London field. I started my year with challengers and missed the Aussie Open and Indian Wells. Very proud of the way the year turned out. See you in 🇬🇧!!!

Please take careof your health!J'espere que vous allez terminer la relationshiop avec votre copine,Ako le plus tot possible.Elle est mechante!

Yo sé que tú puedes remontar esta mala racha Kei, pero por favor, espabila de una vez y demuestra tu valía, no dejes que nada ni nadie te detenga, ordena tu mente, trabaja duro y busca el apoyo de grandes personas en tu equipo, incluso si se deba dejar a alguien atrás, que todo sea para retomar tu lugar en el ranking y que en el circuito y la prensa te respete como es debido.

When do you want to win a slam, Kei?

You’re too good not to be getting to semis, final or winning one of these tournaments on clay. Go for it!!

I think you played great

We look forward to seeing you dominating the game with variety of shots, smart tactics in Barcelona. Good luck, Kei!

圭くん、ごめんなさい🙏泣き たい 時 も ある けど 、 やっぱり スマイル が 良 芋 の ね🔥マジなんだけど、マイケル・チャンなりに言わなきゃならないから難しくて……。錦織が復活しなくてそのまま終わりになったんだけど……。果たせなかったのマイケル・チャンが 🤔 時𨶹の無駄じゃないか💦マイケル・チャンとの契約を解消して、心機一転を図ってください。全米オープンに 2014らずいぶん咲きましたね👀 残念ながら、全米オープン準優勝から、成長していません。 5年前のあの素敵な笑顔がまた、見たいです😆決めてれるといいね、どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。

I am looking forward to watch your game on clay, too( ^-^)ノ∠※。.:*:・'°☆
