Occupation: Professional Tennis Player
Known for: At 18, surprising number-one seed James Blake to win February’s Delray Beach International, thus becoming the first Japanese man in 16 years to win an ATP event. And in yesterday’s XL Bermuda final, he worked Serbian champ Viktor Troicki in a big way to take home the big prize.

Known for: becoming the first Japanese man to win an ATP title in 16 years by beating James Blake 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 in the Delray Beach International Championships final on Sunday, winning eight consecutive matches before that, being the youngest player to win a title since Lleyton Hewitt did it in ’98, movin’ on up in the rankings from 244 to 122, hitting “cold winners.”
Congratulasians, Kei! We hope to see you kick ass in a major soon!
