3rd round match: J. Blake vs. Big Dumb Kid - who will win?

Blake has the better shots, better movement and a brain.

I say Blake in 3.

One classy individual and err....another guy. Sadly sportsmanship and dignity don't always prevail in sporting events but in this case I think they will. Blake should take this one in 4 sets.

I support......

Blake big favourite of course, but Monfils has this uncanny way to grind victories out of nowhere sometimes.

Blake is amazing really, the wam bam stuff seems to work on clay.

Re: 3rd round match: J. Blake vs. Big Dumb Kid - who will win?

It will be a great opposition in styles: Blake will try to make the point in two or three shots and Monfils has great defense shots.

If it goes to 5 sets Monfils may win, otherwise I think Blake is too consistent.

The Blake bandwaggon...wow everyone in the GM is on it. Haha...stupid Federer fans, I don't think James can beat Nadal on clay but if you wanna root for him and pretend go ahead.

Anyways, yea Blake wins this one in 4.

Sadly, Monfils in 5 but i hope to be proven wrong yet again.
