Houston R1: Clay maestro Blake beats Nishikori 6-4, 6-4.

By the looks of it the first set was routine, and the second was more difficult as Nishikori was up a break at 3-1, but James answered.
15 year old Harrison next!

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

That's what the result should have been in DB.

I am sure Emilio Sanchez watched the match in full and then promptly called Nadal and Ferrer. Both of them are trembling in fear right now, unable to sleep

let's see if Blake can beat the 15 year-old Harrison.

I'll be impressed if he does. because I'm always impressed when Blake wins.

Good revenge win on his worst surface.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Regardless, Nishikori is mega uber super duper talented and he could have used his wickedly cool drop shot fake-out to beat Blake again but not this time. Nosiree.

Kei Nishikori has just bursted onto the scene. Cant expect him to win matches against top players all the time
