Queen's QF: James Blake def. Mikhail Youzhny 7-6(5) 6-3

Quite an entertaining match, with some good shot making from both, especially Blake.

Misha led 5-2* in the TB and got tight.

Andy Roddick next.

I like this match up, seems like they are inspiring each other. Very good tennis apart from a 2 games in the middle of the second set when both of them had simply idiotic service games.

I think Blake's matches this week have been the most entertaining. He's back in good form me thinks. It won't be a walk in the park for Andy if Blake keeps this good standard up (minus the lame lapse of concentration here and there).

the last 3 games were the most patheticly played games ever seen on a pro tennis court (by Youzhny)

What a shock Youzhny lost to Blake. Pathetic performance after the tiebreaker and alot of ballbashing in this match. This tournement sucks

I thought the last games "deadly on grass" Djoker played at last Wimbledon were worse, but hey, let's go with this one.

Re: Queen's QF: James Blake def. Mikhail Youzhny 7-6(5) 6-3

I caught the last few games, which was the first coverage I've seen thus far. Wish I hadn't. Blake has the touch of a rhino, just standing at the service line and attempting to crush those BH returns back. Fortunately for him, Youzhny on grass was like a squid on sand. His effort (particularly his movement when serving) was almost as bad as Nalbandian's performance here against Djokovic last year.

I wish there were more grass tournaments like this though, even faster in fact. You can watch a couple games of this horror and realize how many skills are left unused in today's groundstroke grinding.

Entertaining match overall; pity Youzhny couldn't keep his head after he lost the first set. The game he lost after he broke Blake back was pathetic.

Wow Youzhny has fallen off...a couple years ago and he was up 2 sets to 0 on Nadal at Wimbledon.

Blake seems to be playing better than he has been lately...I don't see him beating Andy though
