So that Tursunov or Berdych can kill him in the semi afterwards? Okay, fine by me!

Can't impress much with his thus far cupcake draw.

Blake's play was exceptional in every department. Contrast his energy, attitude, skill and power with the lame Murray-Verdasco that followed.

James was as impressive as anyone I have seen thus far in the tournament. The backhand continues to improve and he will be tough to beat.

"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."

Oh, Rafa'd have his revenge on Berdy too should he get that far.
And losing to a blogging genious who can also play absolutely awesome tennis wouldn't break my heart.

Blake will slaughter poor little Piggy just like he did to his sugar daddy Carlos

Re: Blake destroys Kuznetsov 6-4,6-1,6-2

Blake is one of my favourites , but I think Hewitt may pull a upset , Hewitt has Gozno now but Gonzo is struggling in every match , and h-t-h between James and Lleyton even last year which was the best season foe James and Lleyton was in slump it was 1-1

But American Charge continue
in 3rd there are : Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick, Sam Querrey, James Blake and Robby Ginepri , and 4 of them have great chance to make it into second week.

Re: Blake destroys Kuznetsov 6-4,6-1,6-2

Did anyone see the first 3 games? Kuznetsov went 3-0 up (double break) playing some of the best tennis you'll ever see. It was absolutely ridiculous how well he was playing.

He kind of fell apart after that though

Keep it up Blake.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: Blake destroys Kuznetsov 6-4,6-1,6-2

Good game, enjoyed watching it even at 4am in the morning when I haven't slept for 28 hours, in fact im still up as I write this. Amazing what a large coke and a packet of cheese tortillas can make you do :P.

Love the slamdunk-smash by Blake. Kuznetsov played good as well, especially in the start but faded after a while. I can't wait to see the quarters with players performing at this level! A bulletproof recepie for exciting 5-set matches for sure!

Roger Federer. Legend.

Yeah but 5 setters and Blake don't go together

Re: Blake destroys Kuznetsov 6-4,6-1,6-2

It was an entertaining match, even though after the beginning it fizzled out as a competition.Blake looks very, very good. I don't thjink, however, that he will be able to keep it up throughout the tournament and whether he can handle it mentally. His slam record is not great, especially outside of New York. Still never won a five setter. If he wants to get to the final then u feel this has to change.
