Washington, QF: (2)Alexandr Dolgopolov def. James Blake 7:6(3), 6:4

Very good performance by Dolgopolov, his ROS was on a fire - many clean winners. The backhand he hit in the last game (second point I think) was GOAT, he knows how to hit such passing shots. Only if he would be more consistent and playing like this more often...

Blake finished the match with DF.

Washington QF: [2] Dolgopolov def. Blake 7-6(3) 6-4

Blake did better than I expected. He almost had a double break in the 1st set, but didn't close it out. Querrey up next for Dolgo
Dolgo was serving for it at 5-3, but then Blake broke back, and got broken right away DF on MP btw...

fun match. complete bashing contest. some outrageous winners from both, especially on return.

stats on the atp sb were hilariously wrong too.

had dolgo serving at 86% at one stage near the end of the first set when it was more like 40

Good match. Blake played unexpectedly well I must say. 50 winners between the two in 2 sets. Turbotennis.

Dolgopolov always serves at sub-50 and usually wins when he's playing an average player or past-it like Blake.

Brings back memories of Umag last year against Volandri.

Good for Dolgopolov, but sadly he plays well only when he needs the money
