X-MAN Defeats James Blake 5-7 6-4 6-4 *Delray Beach Final*

X-MAN WHY CANT YOU PLAY LIKE THIS IN THE SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wat a comeback against a very hard player to beat In James!

Especially in THE USA!

GREAT WIN GREAT PLAYER!!

I think over 5 sets against good players Xavier must lose concentration because he can beat anyone on his day in 3 sets even the fedman.

well done

James tanked so he can get to Ostrava.

Mr Delray Beach strikes again.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I'm so happy for him! 2 titles in one year and maybe more. I never would have wished for that a few years ago But I still always believed

He said he worked very hard in December and it's paying off. He also more mentally though. He'll never be a role model, but he's definitely stronger mentally. 2007 is the x-man's year, expect another semi at wimbledon You heared it Roger, stay out of his draw

I had a feeling somthing like this would happen once the match was interupted yesterday. Congrats Malisse, now it is a good time to display some consistency. James must be looking for the closest way to Prague and then to Ostrava at this point.

he was supposed to go out today, in about an hour, but now obviously he won't make that flight. We discussed this a lot in the thread here in GM about why James played this tournament to begin with. He shouldn't have, and now he and the US team could pay dearly.
