Re: James Blake vs Agustin Calleri - Who will win?

Blake has got to be getting tired, QF's at Indian Wells and Miami and 8 sets of tennis in DC last weekend.

I'm sure Calleri has enjoyed his time off and trained on clay as he had two nice matches coming into this.

But in the end Blake will probaly find a way to win. I hope I'm wrong though.

There is going to be a lot of guile and finesse in this one.

Sight for sore eyes with 2 blockheads going at it.

Re: James Blake vs Agustin Calleri - Who will win?

All things being equal the slow clay should tip things into Calleri's favour I think, Blake may be flattered by the draw here to get this far (tired/jetlagged/unprepared Nishikori and a 15-year old, avarage age of his opponents 16.5 years).

Re: James Blake vs Agustin Calleri - Who will win?

James will probably win it, but if Calleri comes to play he could take it.

Re: James Blake vs Agustin Calleri - Who will win?

rumour has it that these 2 have decided to play this match best of 5 after hearing of mtf's worst 5 set record thread so that at least one of them gets the chance to improve their abysmal record.

Re: James Blake vs Agustin Calleri - Who will win?

This should be a regular clinic, and my head says Blake.

Hoping for Gordo to prove that wrong though.

Calleri had him on the ropes on hard courts in connecticut. he was up 5-4, 40-0 on his own serve and proceeded to choke it away.

that was on hard courts which is Blake`s best surface.

i think Calleri should take this one. Blake`s high risk game pays very few dividends on dirt.
