Del Potro is a walking joke on court atm, only Golubev is worse

Blake was fucking awesome

Of course Del Potro wasn't anywhere near his best though But all credit has to go to Blake for sure.

Blake played well. Delpo needs to find his form somehow.

Far from good win, very far.

Delpo is not even top 50 player atm, i say he is similar position with Troicki.

Pony looked like he was sleep walking

Blake was solid and took advantage. Really mixed it up by coming to the net quite a bit and was very successful.

Nice volleying by Blake...also good forehands too, hopefully he can get the ranking up and make a run next year at a slam.

But real story, WTF is up with DelPo playing so defensive...he's just rolling the ball in play. No big forehand, no ball bashing, just slicing and heavy topspin...he was retrieving most of the match and hoping for Blake errors. Looking like the South American Andy Roddick out there.

So many brainless little focks here that it hurts to see, it really does.

for example Bogomolov beat Murray start of the year, Donald Young did too, what do Murray do them now? Yes, destroy them.

You can do your tennis pretty easily if top player simply sucks.

Re: Stockholm R2 Blake def Delpo 6-4 6-4

Best match of the tournament so far. It's cool when one of these veterans really bring their A-game. Blake served well, his returning was spot on and he also read the game so well. Often took the ball early and sent rocket winners. Delpo might have been rusty but few players would have been able to handle Blake today. He didn't really drop in level throughout the match.

Blake said after the match it was probably his biggest win in 2-3 years. Said he finally felt healthy and confident again and that if he played his 2006 self it would finally be somewhat close again Blake really needed the win and now he got a great shot in the next round too.
