Forget about tennis, Go WIZARDS!

James Blake defeats Olivier Rochus 6-4 6-3


Third time in a month that James has played Oliver Rochus, congrats on the win James and now the next big obstacle is Ivan Ljubicic. I think James can handle Ljubicic from the ground, the question is whether he can break the monstrous serve of Ljubicic. They've played twice before with Ljubicic winning both times in four sets, but James and Ivan have both improved since then so this will be a good match. I wish I could watch this. So now it's my favorite player against the Croation's favorite, should be interesting.

Yep, should be a very good match. Im hoping Ivan will pull it out in 3, but we will see tomorrow. It is last match on center court.

If this wasn't such an important match for Ivan, than Blake wouldn't have a chance! But Shangai makes it more interesting!!

Re: Bring on Ljubicic, Blake def. Rochus

Blake seems to be able to compete in the big matches against big players. He doesn't always win but he makes it a very close contest, even against the Fed.

I fancy a 3rd set in this one.

do you expect Ljubicic to play with blindfold or serve lefthanded then?
