Cincy R1: Istomin def. Blake 6-3 6-0

Disgraceful from James . Somebody who got a WC should try to fight at least . Sad to watch

Worst effort I've ever seen.

It's not so much that James played badly that irritates me.

It's more that he took a wildcard and then there was so little intensity, so little apparent interest in being there.

I mean, come on, let's see some visible level of effort. That second set was complete bollocks.

Tough one for Denis.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

James is the next WTA #1. Wait. I am not even sure he can make it even in that minor league

Commentator put it well, if you ask for a WC, at least put up some fight. This was disgraceful.

Please retire James, you're a joke. If I'd come across him right now, I'd punch him for this effort. He took away the WC for Harrison, Sweeting or Smyczek.

If it was Davydenko instead of Blake there would have been a lot of question marks and he might have been fined for lack of effort

Farewell tournament at the US Open? He's going to run out of wildcards, and be down around 150 pretty soon.

At the end of the US Open, James will have to take a decision.
