James Blake on Forbes.com

A little interview on the Forbes video network where James discusses his Evian endorsment, hopes for Davis Cup, being the top American for the first time, and finally taking a set off Roger at USO:

There's a couple of ads in there which you can't skip, but they're only about 20 seconds long so it's not too annoying.

Enjoy!

Wow Blake is excited about taking a set off of Roger. Well Vince Spadea was correct about Blake in his book.

Re: James Blake on Forbes.com

Blake has some low career goals, if he is talking about taking a set of Roger.

Re: James Blake on Forbes.com

Roger played one of his worst matches in the Miami final and even Ljubicic couldn't win a set.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: James Blake on Forbes.com

such overreaction

if you watched the video, the journo asked the question..."you did take a set of him though?"
