Rome R1 : Victor Crivoi def James "clay tourist" Blake 7-5 6-3

Crivoi was up 5-0 in the 1st set, then Blakey wins 5 games in a row, Crivoi held and then broke Blake to take the 1st set.

Blake looked like he wanted to be somewhere else, the conditions weren't great, but they are the same for both players.

Time to head to the beach in Estoril.

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".

Poor from Blake, but Crivoi worked some nice points for himself.

Great to see him win in a tournament like this!

Reverse shit in second set, Blake was 2-0 up and then Crivoi won 5 games in a row. It never looked like Victor could lose this one.

You can always count on some comedy to happen when Blake steps on a clay surface.

Joachim Johansson / Ivo Karlovic / Andy Roddick / Ernests Gulbis / John Isner / Chris Guccione / Feliciano Lopez / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga / Ivan Ljubicic / Mario Ancic / Michael Llodra / Gilles Muller / Xavier Malisse / Max Mirnyi / Nicolas Mahut / Robin Söderling / Frank Dancevic / Olivier Rochus / Robert Kendrick

Rather awful match. Blake was gifting a couple of points each game, I don't really know how he managed to level it back to 5-5 in the first set despite not playing that well.
