Miami R3: Ramos def. Blake 6-4 2-6 7-5

James

Ramos was very sharp in the first set...FH on song and got plenty of first serves in. Blake did well to stay in touch.

Then Ramos dropped off a bit in the second and Blake took control, clinching the set with a lovely CC BH return winner.

James exploded out of the blocks in the third with a salvo of DTL winners off both wings. He didn't quite use the momentum to break though, there was a BP in game six but he didn't take it. Was broken after a poor game at 5-5 and that was that.

Andy Murray

Tsonga, Wawrinka, Zverev, Sock, Thiem, Muller, Kyrgios, Stepanek

Tennis is a joke. It's not a sport anymore. It's just a clay court with different colors and runners with rackets moon balling. Forget this s***. James was never going to win this but is the court so slow? I mean what do these tennis officials want? This s*** is not even enjoyable anymore it is so slow

Blake was fucking amazing from the beginning of the second to 5-5 in the third then handed it away.

Pretty good match overall, sad ending but Blake is playing a lot better than he has been the last few years.

Ramos really did a good job in the last few games of running Blake all over the court and then Blake was fatigued and lost 8 of the last 9 points to go away pretty meekly.

Crap call on 0-30 in that game, Ramos's ball was clearly out.

Still, horrible service game from Blake, typical stuff from him.

Poor showing in the first and third sets.

Ramos comes across as a poor man's Nadal/Fiasco hybrid.

Or maybe Fiasco is a poor man's Ramos?

I think Blake's age is just catching up to him. He looked dead by the third set and probably wanted nothing to do with playing another match and just kinda gave in.

He was outstanding in the second set though. The BP in the 3rd all he had to do was put one of 3 volleys away but couldn't end the point and Ramos was able to make a nice shot.

He would still beat anyone in Englad not named Andy Murray. What a joke. The guy is a choker but does play some decent ball for his age. He reached this round on his own unlike Isner who needed umpire to help him out.

some pretty impressive hc tennis from the spanish dirt-baller. he went toe-to-toe with jb and was pounding the ball. as goodall put it, 'he out-blaked blake'.

But it's about time Ramos had a decent event. He has a fair few points coming off next month.
