Re: Title fave James Blake pulls out of Brisbane and Aussie Open.

What does it mean that he withdrew because of 'personal reasons'? Does it mean family problems?

there was rumor a few weeks ago that he had gotten engaged but no confirmation and now this?

Melania Trump who is not qualified to shine Michelle Obama's shoes might very well be the first semi-literate AND vapid First Lady of the US

Re: Title fave James Blake pulls out of Brisbane and Aussie Open.

I read somewhere that the withdrawal can be due to illness of his mother (cancer is suspected).

Shame, he seemed to have finally got his fitness together, was looking capable of having one last good season. After all he's been through, would be nice to see him go out with a bang.

Now Federer can fluke his 17th Slam untroubled. Damn you, James.

Don't believe things that someone read "somewhere" about some supposed illness. That is how rumours start. No one knows anything about why Blake is not playing AO.
