A little trash talking by James. I hope the boys read this - nothing like this to get them fired up to destroy James on court.
And the way Andy is playing, I'm not sure that the Americans have all that much any more to be confident about.
Of course things change - there's a long time from now until DC - Andy may get his act together by then.
James Blake won the two points that he played before Rumania, in the match of the first round of the World Group of Davis Cup. This it is a point to its favor to integrate the match before Chile, in April. Clearly that says that he is not the unique one, just as he left him in clear yesterday al to respond to latercera.
"To be the number two, I believe that I am the favorite one before (Nicolas) Massú and (Fernando) González playing on grass", Blake said from Memphis.
The New Yorker believes that his country is the great candidate to advance to semifinals.
"Of course we are the favorites. Already we were it in other surfaces and now more on grass. With Andy (Roddick), the Bryan brothers we are the favorites. Behind Roger Federer, Roddick is the best player on grass. He has played two times the end in Wimbledon and he is very dangerous. The same the Bryan, that played the end in London last year; have a great he remove and on grass they have large chances before the Chileans", explained Blake.
"Massú has not had large results on grass in Wimbledon. González is better, but this court gives us better opportunities to win", the American on the election said that they did to wait for Chile on grass.
Blake praised the play of the nationals.
"The two fight a lot. González hits him strong and can attack with the right and service. No longer it is the player that hits to all and he is intelligent. Massú has a great right and moves very well, although the backhand is his weakness", finalized.
