Re: Comeback of the Year

Blake made not only a major comeback in the tennis world, but he made a comeback to life in general. He showed up with an optimistic and positive attitude, for once he believed in himself & his abilities. James Blake has Top 10 material game, but sadly doesn't possess the mental toughness to go along with it. He played so well against Lleyton in Australia and then it just well, fell apart and the wheels came off. I was expecting it eventually though.

Re: Comeback of the Year

Mariano Puerta for a great come back. He came back after such horrendous two years, after injury and suspension. Vamos Mariano.

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!!

Re: Comeback of the Year

James by far! Having all that happen to him in 2004 and then win two titles and make the qf in new york in a great match.

Re: Comeback of the Year

Puerta for me

Around this time last year he was playing challengers and now he is a sub for the master cup, amasing

Hi all, i'm peter and i'm a huge fan of Pat Rafter

Re: Comeback of the Year

I vote for Puerta, because his comeback was the most impressive one. Last year he was ranked below the 400th place, and even had to play futures to climb the rankings. Unlike Blake, didn't receive the help of TD's in form of massive wild cards to reach the place he has. Nothing against Blake, but Puerta's comeback was really amazing and unexpected, since he had been out of the top 100 for a couple of years before appearing in it again this year.

Re: Comeback of the Year

James Blake, despite Puerta's GS final and huge ranking rise,
because his 2004 was so horrible compared to his 05.
