Is this the end of Blake?
Thomaz only serving at 47% first serves as well
+ Rochus next, nice draw for Thomaz!
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.
ATPtennis.com is ridiculous with an article about Blake rebuilding his position in the elite
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.
