Why did Cincy give Blake a WC?

Surely there's a young up and coming American who would've been more deserved of a WC than Blake?

Embarrassing decision.

Could have just given the wildcard to someone in the crowd, you'd have seen a better effort.

He's an American. He's a former finalist. And he probably asked nicely.

Probably because he brought in a large crowd for almost a decade. Istomin and Falla will never do that here.

Blake is a disgrace, and the organization fell for it.

Re: Why did Cincy give Blake a WC?

That ace ends the game and marks one of the worst efforts I have EVER seen on a tennis court.

45 minutes, nice one James.

If he's still receiving WC's, then something is wrong.

Re: Why did Cincy give Blake a WC?

I really sincerely hop that the US Open doesn't give him a WC and he won't make the MD. I really do after this.

If they do give him WC, they're embarassing

After this performance no tournament director should even think of giving Blake a wild card.If he plays qualies and gets in the main draw then fine but not a WC and get beaten like this

Re: Why did Cincy give Blake a WC?

I understand the decision to give Blake a WC. He was a former finalist after all. After today's match, there is no way he should be given another WC to another tournament, and certainly not to the U.S. Open. Let him play the qualies and earn his way into the MD. That was zero effort from Blake and I'm surprised he even earned three games.

Re: Why did Cincy give Blake a WC?

I hope this match gets the publicity is deserves and all the tournament directors are aware of Blakes lack of interest anymore. It's be a shame if they weren't aware of this embarrasing display. Qualies for Blake.

Re: Why did Cincy give Blake a WC?

James has wildcards lined up wherever he wants this summer. New Haven is next then the US Open which will give him a main draw WC. I can't blame the USO for doing it either. James has provided some good moments in Ashe and he's sold tickets so he deserves it based on the time he put in and on his past entertainment value.

Call it a "lifetime achievement WC" if you want.
