Interesting match to watch. Not your average claycourter match. Both players trying to close the point as fast as possible. Could really have gone either way, but I'm really glad James managed to snatch it in the end. I've always enjoyed a Federer-Blake match. Except for the in Olympics last summer. I thought it was something wrong with the machine at the Copenhagen train station when I saw the result.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Blake may actually make the 3rd round of RG this year

Ivo lost only 4 points on his serve in last set

Proof of what I've been trying to say, Ivo Karlovic is the second best player on clay.

Yup, it's only fair to put Isner first.

Very important win for Blake's self-confidence after pathetic loss to Montanes in Estoril
His final set TB record is stil awful though

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Blake's ranking has been in free fall,i hope he can get a run going.

Yeea...you're pickin' up what I'm putting down. Do you want to tell them or do you want me to? John vs. Ivo...Roland Garros Final 09'.

I'm like Nostradamus but more accurate and without a beard.
