James Blake about Kuznetsov:
" Yeah, it's great to see some guys getting through quallies. Kuznetsov is a good friend of mine, trained with me at Saddle Brook a few times. I was shocked, first time I hit with him, he was about 15 years old, he was just actually beating up on me and Mardy in baseline games. I was just wondering who the heck this kid is. He was playing great.
Since then he dealt with a terrible accident, has come back so strong, when he broke his leg in a car accident. Now he's playing great tennis again. That's a testament to how hard he worked, how hard he did his rehab. So I think his level of improvement is going very quickly, which is great to see. He's a hard worker, a really nice kid. Of course, all that will go out the window if I play him in the second round, I won't think of him as a nice kid for those few hours. "
