I was having a great day. Really. I got through to the third round which is great. Then I got a question about my secret relationship instead of my tennis, when exiting the courts. I didn't have any idea what was happening, honestly. You can see my shocked face on live TV. Then I was shoved this article by my manager afterwards.

Yukimura Seiichi has been taken?
The prolific tennis player, currently number 6 in the world tennis rankings after a long hiatus, who is openly gay has been sighted in Japan with an unknown person, holding hands and kissing in the Botanical Gardens. This raises the question for how long has this secret relationship being going on and who exactly is this mystery man?

The article goes on for ages with speculations and interviews with people I've never really exchanged more than a few words with, but they have pictures of Shiraishi and I. Which is...exactly what I didn't need right now. Thanks a bunch, media. Here comes the hate-mail from the people who forgot I was gay and the screams of despair from the fangirls and fanboys.

It's the day before US Open. I'm buzzing with nervous energy, but I really can't wait to start and be back on the courts and in the game. I wish all my fellow players luck and I hope the rest of you will be watching!

No matter what happens, do all of my pro-circuit people want to grab a drink after the final? Or some dinner.

My garden is looking better. Three days of non-stop work pays off, it seems. I also managed to paint a few new pictures, though they weren't as good as my usual paintings. Also had a photoshoot with a perfume company and a contract signed for a guest appearance in some popular sitcom. Looks like my schedule during the off season's going to be as busy as ever ^^; Whoop-de-fucking-doo

I'm getting rather fed up of reporters asking me how I feel about losing the US Open. Losing isn't fun and it motivates me to do better. What else do they want me to say? I cry in bed at night? I drown my sorrows in alcohol? I'm swearing revenge or something? Honestly....Like I'd say anything like that to them.

Niou, are we still on for coding and general computer handling lessons? I think we should probably start once the off-season really begins in November. I'll be free in Japan for that time period.

-Yours tiredly, Seiichi

Well done, Kazuya-kun. It was a brilliant game. You've really improved since we last played. Good job upon winning the US Open. I look forward to playing with you again.

I'll be back in Japan tomorrow. Yukari-chan, Kura, would you like to go out on Wednesday?

Liliadent-kun, Akaya, sorry for not providing you with a good show. But thank you for coming out to support me. I hope you had an amazing time in America.

And Atobe..? Thanks for the invitation. I think I'll take you up on that.

Wimbledon's champion and world number 2, Yukimura Seiichi delivered an amazing performance in the third round of the US Open against Rafael Nadal, taking the match with a score of 6-1, 6-3, 6-2. There were doubts over Yukimura's performance against the frenchman, especially since Yukimura played two long five set matches in the previous rounds, yet Yukimura disproved them all with a positively electric game! With sharp serves that seemed to disappear as he swung and quick, angled returns that were almost brutal in their ferocity, Yukimura completely steamrollered over Nadal.

Nadal later said, "Yukimura played with a passion today, that I have rarely see him unleash so early in the tournament. It was a great match, and I am not displeased by my loss, though perhaps by the score."

As it was, the usually personable Yukimura was quick to leave the court and did not remain long enough for questions. It raises queries about the state of Yukimura's heath and whether this game was entirely natural. One might almost say that he played like a man possessed today. Whatever reasons for his victory, this reporter is eager to see his next performance!


Reporters never fail to make me laugh. Played like a man possessed indeed...

I have never played a better game in my life, even the ones against Echizen, Genichirou and Tezuka. I both hate you and love you. My coach noticed though. He asked me whether I had a tryst with my girlfriend before the match. I think I was crying with laughter. I almost said something, but I decided to stay quiet. I'm not releasing anything to reporters unless I absolutely have to :/

Have...have you seen the thing with Yukari? Kite-san and Genichirou are trying to find her so I know they'll get to her before that sick fucker tries to marry her, but I wondered if you were going after her as well.

And, I'm off again~ America, I return to you. The US Open ought to be interesting this year. I look forward to seeing you there, Tokugawa.

Liliadent-kun, Akaya, call me if you have any problems while staying there. Those box tickets should last for the whole tournament and for any of the matches, even the ones I'm not playing.

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?

And my first and probably only foray into the world of music was concluded today while the women's finals happened. That was exhausting. I have a newfound respect for all singers. And that was just one song! I think I might have gone insane if more were involved :/

I think the problem might have been that both Echizen and I were inexperienced and had no idea what they wanted from us and what the machinery did. Everybody was very relieved when the day was over, let's just put it that day. And I thought modelling was stressful....

In any case, we were some of the last people to record, so the charity album will be on sale during the US Open! Go buy it! Echizen and I's duet is not the only famous song on that CD! I'm pretty sure that Federer's got a song on there too, as well as a tonne of other surprise guests from all over the celebrity realm. All proceeds go to Great Ormond Street Hospital, so please donate~

Okay, so August's going to be a busy month~! Four major ATP tournaments, five publicity events, three photoshoots and a recording session with Echizen. Phew. I wonder if I'll get the time to sleep through all of this ^^;

I'll be in America from today onwards basically. I'll be coming back to Japan during the 19th and 24th, so I can sign a couple papers and do another photoshoot. If anyone needs me, contact me through this journal or come and find me during my short break from America ^^;
