Blake def. Calleri 3:6 7:6 6:1

It seems nothing can stop him from playing more and more matches. Anyway, good win, a loss would be understandable

Nice to save MPs on the way to a win

Keep winning the toughies Maybe you can win your first 5 setter @ The Open this year

Re: Blake def. Calleri 3:6 7:6 6:1

Calleri playing his best tennis and having 6-3 *5-4 40-0 and *6-5 still wasn't enough to put away a disinterested James.

Way to go James, thanks for taking out the trash.

At first I thought it's a repeat of Fish/Chucho match that another Argentine ate a bagel in the final set.

I wish blake would take a week off before a slam but maybe this is what he likes.

Anyhoo, I just knew he was losing. Dude was serving for the match but next time I looked Blake had won the 2nd set and was up 4/1 in the 3rd.

Just an humble Fed fan

Calleri funny guy, this was 2 tactical minds of the highest degree.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

As for Calleri's best tennis you are exaggerating a bit aren't you? He hasn't played well for a while and as for Blake more drinks on town on with his boys.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The tennis equivalent of a Karpov and Kasparov chess match.

Up until match point Gordo was playing amazing tennis. James really wasn't playing badly, he hitting backhand down the line winners at will. Needless to say, I wasn't surprised to see the third set result after Gordo choked the second away.

James had 40 winners and 27 UE's, Gordo's stats were somewhere around that, if not higher.

Sounds like their Dusseldorf match where Calleri was beating him, then somehow Blake won and he didn't know how, well maybe that Koubek loss is still in Calleri's head.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
