Miami R2: Bellucci def. Blake 3-6 6-1 6-2

Is this the end of Blake?

Thomaz only serving at 47% first serves as well

+ Rochus next, nice draw for Thomaz!

Expected, Bellucci is just the far better player at the moment.

ATPtennis.com is ridiculous with an article about Blake rebuilding his position in the elite

Blake is the ATP's Obama....all fluff.. supposedly Mr. Nice Guy with supposed credentials whose "aggressive" (ballbashing) game is soooo popular with the fans.

Btw, I like Obama actually (I am only referring to the media's biases either for or against him. In the case of Blake, the press has always been his cheerleader)

Quite possibly the end of Blake, yes. Like I said a few weeks back, he might be best staying in the USA for some challenger events (easier points) than making the trip to European clay...his ranking can take a huge hit (out of top 100) by mid-June. Not sure his pride will make him see sense though.

Either way, he has a rough year ahead of him, and his age only makes it tougher (as far as motivation is concerned).


Don't necessarily agree that Rochus is a 'nice draw' for Bellucci...Thomaz has still yet to really prove himself off the clay, and Ollie is a pest.

Yeah they also plugged him before IW as well. Obviously Djoker is in crap form, but I was still thinking that Blake's mini-section wasn't exactly a 'favourable' draw as they had described it.

Bellucci's draw is opening up nicely here. He could make the QF.

LOL @ you guys mentioning the ATP website heroic"ing" the efforts of Blake, they had the article up on Sunday where they were saying this was the tourny that he would get back into the top 10. LMFAO. yah, in your dreams.

let the guy go back to harvard already, dammnit. So sick of the effing ballbashing as hard as he pissing can.

Always great to see Blake lose. The day he falls out of the top 100 will be glorious.

Well Bellucci obviously has a lot of talent and he is really improving this year

Blake is still in poor form though He almost lost his 1st match too

And now he can focus on grass and hard courts for the next few months while he loses every week on clay...

After beating the kid Krajinovic, you'd think he'd have come through this, but that's it really.
