Blakes' form can come and go in a blink so I don't think anyone can comment on what Blake's form really is.. he got jacked up by Sam Query in the first set just this week, and lost to Wang and Viliegen recently. So who knows if he'll keep the same form or misfire like crazy.
Andreev is inconsistent too. He lost to Cilic, Bracialli and so forth, granted those were indoors. Also lost to starace and youzhny outdoors.
I did see Andreev's match against Roddick and he was red hot. His serve was smoking and his forehand/backhand were heavy and fast. If Andreev plays the way he played against Roddick, James will need to play well to complete too!
