Re: Can anyone tell me why Blake be there?

That's because he's gettin' a lot of money.

Second, he knows he can't win a big title, so... what better than quantity when you can't have quality?

By way of a serious point, if he can win these titles, at least he has a nice cushion of optionals points.

But, you got to know He is 27, not 18 or 19

He can only have best performance in 7 or 8 tournament, not 15 or 17

Re: Can anyone tell me why Blake be there?

Appearance fees could be a good motivation even though I don't know how much money these small tournaments give. Another reason is that he is a streaky player with a low margin for error, and he didn't go deep in the AO so no reason to worry about overplaying.

I doubt Delray pays more than $150,000 at most. Probably less. He's playing Delray, Davis Cup, San Jose, Memphis, Vegas, IW, Miami.... etc. theoretically he has no weeks off until after Houston. That's just plain ridiculous, regardless of appearance fee. He has enough sponsorships now that he doesn't need it, he can't put on any points, etc. Big WTF for me as to why he is playing Delray. But, his choice.

Are we sure he will show up for all of those?

no, and for his sake I hope he doesn't, but I've never pegged James the type to enter everything and then pick and choose what to play - well, most players aren't, but most players are not, quite frankly, dumb enough to even contemplate playing this many weeks in a row. Plus, at the end of last season he said he was going to plan his schedule better, and he quite obviously did not do that.

So do other players who didn't play. And there are players who used to play Delray when it was in March who don't play anymore because they don't like to play the week after a slam.

I agree, but I don't expect him to go deep into all these tournaments. It seems he just tries to follow what he did last year, possibly he will take a break after Miami.

Re: Can anyone tell me why Blake be there?

Well he's a top 5-10 player, even if we don't expect him to go deep in them all, he should expect himself to. he even promised the San Jose tournament that he would play doubles with Mardy. That's why it's perplexing, most especially because of what he said about planning his schedule better

The week after Miami is Davis Cup, so he better not be planning to take a week off then

True, but realistically his style of play will result in at least an early round loss when he simply misfires.

Doubles is just a substitution for practice, I doubt he will add too much court time overall.

You got me there, I totally forgot about DC, probably because I cheer for the Czechs in the 1st round. (I just would like to see a particular Czech boosting his confidence with 2 wins over top-10 players ) If the US goes through James will need to play, especially if Spain turns out to be the next round opponent.
