Houston QF: Blake downs Calleri 6-4, 6-3.

Pretty much routine win for James.
King Oscar next will be very tough next even though Oscar prefers grass.

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

Well done James... and... thanks for the cash!

Thanks for showing up Calleri.

My inner ear was right.

Never in doubt, Calleri couldn't close it out last year with 40-0 on his own serve and before that 6-2 up on clay, no way he's winning here. Good win for James regardless, King Oscar will be tough, even though it his worst surface.

What's that, the sound of engine turbines leaving Houston to Nice with a large Argentine and a blond coach.

Tough for Blake against the King.

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".

Terrible performance from Gordo. Now I have to watch Blake in the semis

Argentinian tennis is in a sorry state when no player can reach a SF in any of three simultaneous MM clay events

Calleri spent too much time giving strategic advise to Vishy Anand yesterday, no doubt that left him mentally exhausted for this match. Now it will be an interesting challenge to see how James will cope with the King.

Americans are nearly unbeatable on clay as long as it is in the US. Play the French Open in the US and Rafa would never get passed Blake or Roddick not to mention Isner.
