anyone know if the jblock still exists like @ the usopen and stuff i was tempted to buy their shirt and hat but wasnt sure if it was still hip or not.. REGARDLESS i say blake in 3.
Yea they're still around, especially at the USO and New Haven. There's probably a small contingent at the other American tournaments and maybe the grand slams. The USO and Pilot Pen are the only ones where I'm certain it's still pretty strong, though. I think all the T-shirt proceeds go to charity.
From his website (www.jamesblaketennis.com):
All J-Block merchandise and 100% OF THE GROSS PROCEEDS ARE DONATED TO CHARITY. J-Block merchandise can be purchased at all US Open Series events where James competes. To date, over $100,000 has been raised for charity through J-Block merchandise sales.
They go to cancer research through the fund he set up after his dad passed away.
