Beat both Rochus brothers, funny he should have played Malisse in the QFs, then it would have been a real Belgian massacre .

Re: Blake fires 17 aces to avenge Davis Cup loss.

Rochus was interviewed in the latest edition of Tennis Magazine (French Version). He was highly critical of players who take steroids and other illegal drugs to boost their performance and confirmed that he and his brother had a feeling that Canas was taking steroids because everytime he played against him, Canas was never tired after playing long rallies. Rochus says that he suspects that other players who play lously on the tour but who have extra energy at the French Open also take steroids. He did not give names but it looks like he was talking about Puerta.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

Re: Blake fires 17 aces to avenge Davis Cup loss.

Excellent match for James. Just the sort of match he used to lose, losing it would have been a real momentum-squasher.

Hopefully he can win the tournament and get into the Madrid draw (one more wd I think is what he needs) and keep winning.

Re: Blake fires 17 aces to avenge Davis Cup loss.

James can't get into Madrid now. Now that Qualifying has started, I guess any withdrawals from this point on are filled with lucky losers. That's what I've read a couple places.

But he's going and playing doubles with Andy and stuff so that's good for him. This is better for him than playing Madrid anyway, I think

YAY James Now win the final

Re: Blake fires 17 aces to avenge Davis Cup loss.

Blake's obvious talent should make his trips into SF's and F's seem routine. I hope he can continue this next year.

I was very impressed with Blake at USO. Glad to see that it was not temporary.
