The reason of James Blake absence in New Haven

"There’s a lot of things that went into it," Blake said. "I love playing in Connecticut. I love the fans and they seem to appreciate my style of tennis, I am having fun out here and give them a chance to have a lot of fun in the stands. I do have a lot of commitments coming up, I have my clothing line coming out. It is a new challenge, my ranking won’t be where I think it should be, my match (preparation) won’t be where it should be but I will go in with a new scenario," Blake said. "I have been in the Open in a lot of situations, coming from here as a first-round loser, coming here as a title holder and different results and this year it will be a new one."

I am really disappointed as James needs match practice. I try to understand that US Open is a good period for marketing purposes but he shall concentrate on playing and such activities can be performed after the season is over.

Obviously his priorities are screwed up.

Re: The reason of James Blake absence in New Haven

Looks to me he's indeed already looking forward to his after-tennis life.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: The reason of James Blake absence in New Haven

appearance fee not big enough for him (his standards should be lowered than they are)
recently he asked to get as much as Roddick in Indianapolis


he didn't show up in INDY......so new haven must be unable to meet his demands

btw. his ego is bigger than his behind
once Arod withdrew, Indy wanted James to show up and play.
Martin tried to get a commitment from 17th-ranekd James Blake.

“We couldn't meet his expectations,” Martin said.

Martin said Blake wanted a similar player appearance fee that Roddick would have received.

“Finanically we couldn't do that,” Martin said.

james needs to realize he is not a top 10 player anymore

it doesn't surprise me. he was always a bad character to me even though most people think he's so nice.

Re: The reason of James Blake absence in New Haven

blake seems to be puling the career handbrake here. that might be it for him. now there are plenny of reasons to dont like the man, but he will surely be missed. nobody could hang his head so loosely.

reliability...

You're right, should be mid 50's.

What a hack.
