Roland Garros R1: [27] Youzhny def. Blake 6-2 6-1 6-2

Not much of a performance from James, to say the least. Misha played solid throughout.

RG R1: Youzhny steamrolls Blake 6-2, 6-1, 6-2

easy goings for mikhail. Dropped just 17 points on serve the entire match

mikhail's stats are pretty nice: 28 winners, 13 unforced errors

james stats: 19 winners, 35 unforced errors

This is the definition of expected one.

Expected.

James, I'm just glad to see him back and playing again.

Re: Roland Garros R1: [27] Youzhny def. Blake 6-2 6-1 6-2

A couple years ago Blake began to struggle with winning tournaments, later on with matches, then sets, currently it's a matter of games, I wonder whether he quits when winning points within a game will be a huge problem for him

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Given Blake's form this year, I was expecting him to receive a couple bagels so he exceeded my low expectations.

Keep going, Colonel!

Why is James still playing I swear Fed is giving all these older players a false sense of hope. Some of them should have disappeared a long time ago

This is James Blake?! Why hasn't he retired?!

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

It's been a long time Misha has chance to dominate a player at slam...

Expected. Blake was a mug on clay even in his so called "prime". Right now, it's pathetic.
