Benneteau d. Blake 62 76(1)

Diabolical match from Blake.

Benneteau deserved to win in the end.

The first set from Blake was atrocious - he just kept whacking away and sprayed the ball every which way but the blue.

Blake got better as the second progressed, broke back twice from dropping serve, but couldn't move ahead and played a pile of shit tiebreak that was so bad it was comedy.

Pressure from defending finals points + the draw opening up was, I think, a decisive factor against him. He didn't come into the match in the right frame of mind at all - he needed to be solid and businesslike. He was anything but.

Julien was solid until the end of the second set approached, then he couldn't hold the break advantages he took twice but played a smart breaker and let Blake self-destruct.

Well Nole has to reach the semis now looking at that quarter. Pretty pathetic from Blake there - all those points to defend as well.

This is great!!! Julien acted like a gentleman. Unlike Blake but especially in contrast to the rude, boorish crowd!

What a joker. Benneteau was humiliated by friggin Goldstein a couple of weeks ago.
