Re: Wimbledon R1: Baghdatis def. Blake 6-4 6-2 6-7 (5) 4-6 6-4
James proved today he still has a lot of game, so ignoring the haters on this thread, the US HC season could be a very good one for James. He was outplaying and outhitting Baghdatis until *4-3 and then his game faltered. Baghdatis counter-punched well and was dictating more points the first two sets, but the last three he was at the mercy of Blake's power.
James' consistency is even worse now than it was before, but with some matches that hopefully will improve. Grass isn't his surface and he hasn't played in weeks so this is an encouraging scoreline.
