And the Fall from Grace continues for.....


Who would you nominated for
the biggest fall from Grace this year

JAmes Blake has to be an obvious choice
now he cant even muster up a win, much less think of advancing deep into a major & God forbid win one

what has happened to him, confidence crisis?, limited game, incosistency,mental breakdown/ Round robin PR scandal, could the latter have had such an impact on him
On all accounts, last years results were an over achievement that were hard to maintain, but what has happened to him

Who would you add to this new category:
Blake
Henman
Baghdatis

I don't bother to make predictions regarding this stuff

Blake surprised me much in first place by entering the top 10, I never thought he could be a top ten player

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: And the Fall from Grace continues for.....

Blake possibly,Baghdatis is just out of form and having hard draws e.g rafa and JMDP. Gaudio,Coria,Ferrero and Hewitt are probably the ones who have fell the most.

Blake

He can't even win in the US anymore.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Re: And the Fall from Grace continues for.....

Shouldn't we wait until the end of the year to see how everything ends up?

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy

Re: And the Fall from Grace continues for.....

Marcos is still pretty young, give him a break.
James is probably still dealing from the Vegas incident.
But Tim unfortunately is nearing his end

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

Watch for Blake in Davis Cup...I have a feeling it may be painful.

Fall from grace, yes.

Re: And the Fall from Grace continues for.....

Blake is perhaps the only person who is a gentleman even during the game. Someone like that must be in the top ten.

Why do you say so, Ivan? I saw him play against Gonzo at AO. Found him very well mannered and courteous even though he lost.
