Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

Get over yourself and this "I just need to play my game" stuff. Stop blaming the COMMENTATORS! What a bunch of BS!!! So glad that Patrick McEnroe fired back and said "he just got outplayed"

Is there a transcript somewhere? Or better yet, a video?

Re: Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

That match was Blake at his most brainless on court - just trying to hit winners at outrageous pace from anywhere on court with little or no thought processes whatsoever.

I'm delighted he lost. There's a difference between power tennis and brainless ball bashing and Blake exhibited the latter today. Where he got the idea that raw power is the key on clay I have no idea but he's not exactly reading the game is he.

Re: Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

Enough with these worthless thread martinatreue.
Go write a blog somewhere, I'm sure it would be great. You can even include when Fed hitting a 100 mph forehand earlier!

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

Both Fat Dave and Blake the Fake lost today. Sometimes, life is good.

He's just smarting because he got schooled by a more gifted player than him.

Re: Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

I never understood how Blake plays that way when he went to Harvard, you would of thought he would set up the point and go for logical choices, rather than bashing the shit out of the ball. Gulbis deserved the win.

Re: Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

Here's what Blake said...

Quote:
“I think in any close match there are going to be opportunities going both ways,” Blake said. “He took advantage of his. I didn't take advantage of mine. The match was just poor, not within my game. I think I played the way too many commentators think I should play. Saying I probably didn't make very many errors, and I didn't hit that many winners. And that's the way a lot of them think I should play, and I think today was a good indication of that's not the way to win matches for me. I lost to a guy ranked No80 in the world. Granted, he didn't play like No80 in the world, he played better than that, but there are a lot of guys out there that can dictate play against me if I try to play like that.
That's just really frustrating for me to play a match like that when I know my game, I know what works best for me, and I didn't necessarily do it effectively today.”


Blake has only reached the third round once before, and with a reasonable draw that had him potentially facing world No3 Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals, it was thought that he could break the US second week drought. The fast American loves to dictate with his forehand and jump on return of serves, but on clay, he is nowhere near as consistent off the ground as at times, going for outright winners when he is out of position.


“The Americans a lot of times don't have the highest expectations on clay,” said Blake said, “but I really felt like this match today was a match I could have won and could have had some better success here at the French. I did okay at Rome, and felt like I could have done better this whole clay court season. But now the only option really is to forget about it, because I can't do anything to change it now.”

Re: Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

PMac's never said he should play like that...

oh james, there's a big difference between playing passive and not going for shots and playing SMART, aka not going for return winners ALL The time

James shouldn't be playing a certain way just because the commentators say so, and oh! and James, losing doesn't prove to the commentators that they are wrong, only winning does that.

Re: Blake's post match press conference was VERY BITTER sounding

He also shouldn't be so stubborn and playing a certain way just because it's what he's used to. Last night on TTC Robby said he thinks he's getting better on clay because he's trying to adapt his game to it a little bit. Shocking.
