Blake and Kim are the only American men to reach RG 2nd round.

good job guys, for what it's worth.

Kevin's chances to beat Nadal are not good, to put it mildly, so James is really the only hope to have an American player in the mid-rounds of the tournie.

Americans are not clay oriented at all... this is sad.

Kim's only chance is if Nadal injures himself working on his blog. I'm afraid Blake's chances aren't much better.

I say it will be a great success for American men if at least one of them reaches 3rd round.
Obviously if Kevin can battle with Nadal and takes a set off him or something, that would be great, too.

no chance for either. kim might as well not show up and blake will be lucky to get in a tight set against almagro

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Almagro is a special and the only way Kim beats Nadal is if Rafa has to retire from the match.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yea, I fully expect Blake to finally do well at RG! Could possibly make quarters.

Blake has no hope vs Almagro, not even a little chance.
