Hey I was wrong, Blake takes a set off Federer!

Two breaks ahead in Indian wells, 3 set points just now, unless Blake pulls of a Miracle and beats Federer in the next 3 sets, you can rest assured that Federer'll win this match.....

I'm not watching, so.. did he make some easy errors / did federer raise his game on the set points? I give blake credit for breaking federer's serve when Fed was serving for the first set.

*Sigh* I got so excited too.

I wouldn't say never but Federer was at his weakest at Cincy last year and this year.
He had his chance last year and couldn't do anything.
Federer just has too much game.

Ok, I mean its easy to talk, but if you have a set point on your serve try your damn best to put in a super first serve or an ace, to beat Federer one has to reach near perfection, but still, what a lost oppurtunity...

i think blake has a first serve in on set point but roger chipped it back in and somehow took over the point. i think blake to a certain extent doesnt believe he can win.

Blake is too mentally weak.

Great player but is just too afraid of Roger, God of tennis , Federer

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Tiebreak here we go again. Fed missed to serve it out just like in the first set.

Really awful, but you have to pat him on the back for showing some fight. In each set, except the 2nd.. he was fought back well. This is a tiebreak too. Who kows what could happen.

Poor James just gets nervous at key moments. He can't help himself.

Roger choked this set away I wouldn't be surprised to see James win his first 5 set match
