New Haven SF: James Blake def. Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4 3-6 7-6(2)

Fun match from what I saw. Paulo's first serve just completely deserted him in the TB though, he couldnt recover from that. James played well to.

Congrats James! Win the final now.

Paulo, please do well at the Open.

James had 6-4 3-6 *5-3 (40-15) and then lost four straight points to get broken.

Still, it was an excellent effort from James to bounce back after getting broken when serving for the match and take care of business in the tie break.

It'll be a Blake-Fish final tomorrow, so it's an excellent opportunity for James to claim his 10th career title.

A good win considering he blew 2 match points when serving for the match at 5-3.

Should have too much for Fish if he has enough left in the tank tomorrow!!

ALLEZ FED!!!

Re: Blake def. Mathieu 6-4 3-6 7-6

4th "MP saved winner" this season is guaranteed because they both, Blake & Fish saved match point on a route to the final

Very tight all the way. Interesting matches this of late if you want to see some hitting: Blake-Davy, Blake-Verdasco-, Blake-PHM.

He hit 2 backhands into the bottom of the net on those match points but at least he came out and stormed through the tie break. He has a lot of confidence right now!!

James tried to throw this one away... but thankfully that didn't work.

He was playing PHM so even if Blake choked, there was always a good chance of a counter-choke by PHM.

Funny thing for me - choker Blake has won two tight matches this week against two other big chokers - Calleri and Mathieu

It will be a sad day if Blake wins his 10th title tomorrow . A real shame
