Estoril 2R: Blake def. Gicquel 7-6(6) 6-2

Mugish clay-court match of two hardcourters. Gicquel led 4:2 in the tie-break, Blake converted 5th setpoint to take the first set. He was more motivated (a few fist pumps) than in his pathetic last tournaments.

I guess this will make him favourite for RG for the US press.

Again.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Blake is a hard-courter. Gicquel is a nothing-courter.

Looking very precisely you're right but hardcourt is his best surface anyway.
