James Blake is much more talented than ARod, for these reasons:
1). He's a far superior shot maker.
2). His backhand is light years ahead of Roddick's.
3). His serve is a mighty big weapon.
4). His forehand rarely breaks down, except well, when he starts to win.
In my opinion, the dilemma here seems to be in James' head and has little to do with his game, such a talent should cleary be ranked in the Top 5 if the likes of Andy Roddick are masquerading around as legitimate competition in such prestigious tournaments as Wimbledon.
Why can't Blake just get it together ? What's wrong ? Well, maybe I should give him a break, but I just find it a pity that aside from his backhand (well improved) there is nothing tactically wrong with his game. He has matured as a player, I don't care what anyone says - He aside from Agassi is the best American player, Roddick only has a no quit attitude and a monster serve, without 1 of the 2 we'd be talking about him matching up with players on a challenger circuit near you.
Wanna talk about choke, Andre Agassi V. Blake (USO 2005) is right next to the word in Webster's Dictionary. Come on James, I used to be down on him for his poor strategic play, but have since retracted those statements and thoughts, he is a mighty fine player.
