Jeez James what's going on? You used to love this tournament.
Fish was here, practicing for the upcoming Pilot Pen Tennis tournament, while his good friend Blake, from nearby Fairfield, was just practicing, period. Commitments for his upcoming new clothing line, along with other appearances he's scheduled to make next week in New York, are preventing him from playing in the tournament he's won twice and created a fan phenomenon -- the J Block -- in the process.
For Fish, who lost to Blake in the 2007 Pilot Pen finals, there are no commitments for clothing lines, no personal appearances, just tennis. And maybe, just maybe, that's why Fish is climbing up the rankings ladder and Blake is going in the opposite direction.
