Re: Blake reached Semifinals in Stockholm

This is only Blake's second ever semifinal outside the US, and the first came all the way back in 2001 when he lost in the Tokyo semis to Hewitt. He's made just two other quarterfinals outside America as well, Rome and Vienna in 2002. This isn't surprising for someone who's professed his dislike of the indoor season after the US Open, but he may have turned a corner this week. This result is no surprise, he'd have to be badly off to lose to Martin on anything other than clay, but the fightback against Rochus yesterday would probably not have occurred a couple of years ago.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Blake reached Semifinals in Stockholm

A great result for James, especially after the long U.S. summer he had.

Re: Blake reached Semifinals in Stockholm

Congrats James! Hopefully this represents a new path for him: to win at least the matches he should, and show some consistency. Good luck against Ollie, it should be a tough match, Rochus is in good form.

Re: Blake reached Semifinals in Stockholm

Take it all the way home, James

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
