I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

Looking at the draw, he'll win his first 3 matches easily, then does anyone really think Nalbadian is that much better than Blake if they meet? After him though i can't trust Roddick will make it to Week 2.

I think Blake could make a showing at the AO too.

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

hope so! It's mental for him, he has trouble closing out real big matches and also when he's playing guys he has had a lot of trouble with in the past, so we'll have to see how it pans out

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

Maybe so but if you think his first 3 matches are easy then obviously you've never seen Jose Acasuso play. As much as i would like to see James do well, this has the potential for an upset if Jose brings his head to this one.

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

It could be tough, sure. James has the confidence, though, of having beat him at the AO quite easily 3 years ago. James is a much better player now than he was then. From his blog entry, he seems quite aware of how tough Acasuso is.

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

Well, if Tursunov manages to beat Henman and eventually Robredo in the 2nd. Rd, he could be quite a pain in the ass for Blake in the 3rd Rd. Then in the 4th Rd Blake would face either Nalbandian or Nieminen - I can't see him going through this stage.

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

I believe in him and Ancic, it's a strange feeling.

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

Keep dreaming about Blake, he will win a few matches and he should be happy with a 4th round performance.

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Can you tell me how it feels to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above

Re: I really think Blake is an Aussie dark horse

I actually expect him to have a very good result too. He's got a favorable draw so we'll see...
