RG R1: L. Mayer def. J. Blake 7-6 7-5 6-2

NOW That's the Blake we're all used to see on a clay court!!

But credit to Mayer, he played a phenomenal match, one of the best performances in his career.

RG R1: Leo Mayer def. Blake 7-6 (6) 7-5 6-2

Great work Leo.

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".

Typical Blake, lack of effort at 0-2 down.

Re: RG R1: L. Mayer def. J. Blake 7-6 7-5 6-2

The cooler conditions helped Mayer, but he was very aggressive and didn't allow Blake to dictate. This plus Mayer moves a lot better on the surface and didn't get his backhand exposed.

He took it on the 4th match point, good result.

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".

Just like Fish, Blake did moderately well at the warm-up events but failed miserably at Roland Garros.

Great win for Leo Mayer though. The next generation of Argie players is slowly replacing the older one.

Blake just needs to retire; he's such a awste of space. He looked defeated from the very first point.
