James Blake: When will he return to the top 10?

One of the legends in the Federer era along with Roddick, Nalbandian, Hewitt, Safin, and Luberjic, he was an dominant top 10 player.

His form has dropped as of late, but his return is only a matter of time.

Unfortunately he got stuck with a terrible draw facing Marco R1 Wimbledon but how far do you think he will go at the USO series events and when will he return to the top?

James Blake has more class than guys like Djokovic and Murray has today.

He needs to get into the top 90 first

And to answer the question: Never!

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Well troll'd good sir, well troll'd.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: James Blake: When will he return to the top 10?

I don't think Blake can win the USO unfortunately. Unless he can repeat his epic 2008 win at the Olympics against Roger Federer.

He completely destroyed Fed in that game. Amazing.

I do think he has a serious shot at winning Cincy and Montreal to rack up some points and get to the 2nd week at the USO.

Well we all know James is more talented than Federer so I don't see why he can't win the US Open, but we'll see in a few months time.

Re: James Blake: When will he return to the top 10?

How is it trolling to ask when a former top 10 player will return? If I ask can Hewitt come back into the top 10, is that trolling?

Del Potro is having a good comeback into the top 20 after dropping out of the top 100.

Federer had a comeback and regained No. 1 after his crushing losses in 2008.

James Blake was a former world No. 5 who defeated top players in his time like Fed. Its only a matter of time.
