I...I won't be participating in the first half of the tennis season this year. Maybe longer. I'm sorry Tezuka, it looks like our showdown may have to be delayed for a while yet. And I'm sorry to you Echizen, Kazuya, since I won't be able to have any official rematches with you two either.

I suppose I owe an explanation for this. It seems auto-immune disorders run in the family. My little sister Minoru has Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis. I knew there was something wrong with her! I just knew it! And it turns out she wasn't telling me this at all. I had to find out the hard way when she just collapsed in the middle of the street. I took her to the hospital and she was already a regular patient and everyone knew her by name just like they knew me. Imagine my surprise when they told me it was getting worse by the day and she is very likely to not be able to walk soon.

My parents can't look after her; they weren't even able to tell that there was something wrong with her in the first place. They were barely around when I was a kid and in the hospital, what's going to guarantee they'll be around for a quasi-adult? She needs someone more reliable to be there for a while, somebody who'll always be there. Or else you just go....utterly mad in a hospital when you can't do anything. You really do.

And it was a difficult decision to make...but I'm no longer the kid from ten years ago, who valued tennis above people. My family comes first. So, I'm sorry. I'll be back in Tokyo earlier than I expected. Minoru'll be living with me now. And I won't be leaving Japan for tournaments for quite a while. Not until she feels more comfortable about living with it. Since there's no cure for it.

I'm cutting out my ranting for those who don't want to read it. )

Ahh, Respect for the Elders Day. Lots of irritating my coach with showerings of presents (as he insists that 55 is not old) and I visited my favourite teachers from Rikkai and gifted them with some home-made mochi and dango.

I also kept spares for any of the reporters I saw, from the debacle last month. Revenge is sweet. Literally ^__^

FINALLY back in Japan, if only for six days. Phew, I'm tired. Winning Cincinatti wasn't much of a surprise, though the fight put up by Isner was completely surprising. I wasn't expecting it. Serves me right for underestimating him.

Kura, I have a bit of paperwork to finalise tomorrow evening, so I might be late to our date. I'll send you a text if I actually will be late.

Akaya, are we still on for the 20th? Where would you like to meet?

Renji, Genichirou, are you free this week? We could meet up? I still have yet to meet Himawari-chan and it's been a while since I've seen you in person, Renji. And Genichirou, I need to congratulate you on your promotion ^__^

Tezuka, would you like to do our practise match this week or after the US Open?
