This tournament was actually good for Blake. A win over Harrison and getting close to beating Ebden actually gives him some confidence, despite the fact that he is never going to do anything big on the tour again.

I very much doubt it. This is just another bitter pill to swallow and one step closer to packing it in. These are the sort of matches he certainly doesn't want to be losing.

But it's better than losing in straight sets in R1 which he does in pretty much every other tournament

Ebden's done much to gift the match (2 DFs in a row to get broken), but it was not enough.

He couldn't move anymore after 2 sets, too old for tennis.

Re: Atlanta: Ebden def. Blake 6-7,6-4,6-4

Blake is cerainly getting old and "losing it" but on a good day he could still be a nightmare early round matchup for a top player and possibly pull off an upset. Ebden is so mediocre

Was drained by the time he got to 4-2 in the 3rd. He's too old for this shit.

Ebden played horribly but Blake was just burnt out

The fact that Ebden managed to serve 20 aces says it all.

Looked like his back was bugging him, but really bad loss for James, even given how his last few years has been. He literally just tries to hit a winner on every shot, and its super frustrating to watch. literally every single damn shot.
