Miami: Blake def. Stepanek 6-3 6-4

Radek was up 30-0 on Blake's serve at 4-3* and proceeded to lose 8 of the next 9 points to get broken to 15.

Blake then blew 5 match points on his own serve after being up 40-0 before finally winning it.

Well played by Blake... Not very consistent, good job still. Hit some nice passing shots as well.

Crappy match.

Far too many forehand errors from Stepanek in the first set.

Blake's backhand and passing shots were very impressive today. Stepanek was barely able to execute a forehand passing shot and Blake exploited Stepanek's weaknesses very well.

Better match from blake compared to the match against Santoro, but still not a great match. Stepanek wasn't playing very well though

Good win James, good improvement from the last match, He will need to improve again if he wants to beat Nadal though. Another QF at least shows some consistency

ALLEZ FED!!!
