Hopefully, all these rough draws will toughen him up in the long run.
If I'm not mistaken, this is Ryan's 2nd meeting with Blake. Their last meeting was when Ryan was 15 y.o. back in 2008 (Houston). Time sure flies
. Maybe he will be motivated since he admired and grew up watching Blake. IMO, this match is probably gonna be on Blake's racket. As bad as he has been this year, an aging Blake is still the more aggressive of the two
. The match will likely depend on Blake's winners-ues ratio, it will either be a lot of bashing winners or a lot of bashing errors (there is no plan B for James). I hope Ryan is not too passive.
