Atlanta R1: James def. Gulbis 5-7 7-6(5) 6-2.
This was a nutty match.
James wasn't serving well and seemed to go down in quite a number of his service games. He was down 4-5 0-30 in the 2nd with Gulbis serving for the match and broke him. He was down 0-4 in the TB and won that. He was even down 0-40 when serving for the match on the last game and saved 5 break points. He saved 17/20 break points!
Los Angeles MD is out. James is playing Berrer in 1st round. Second seeded Del Potro is waiting for the winner of this match Hope James will win and then he and Juan will show some great tennis as they did in AO.
Besides, Isner has reached final in Atlanta.

LA R1: James def. Berrer 6-2 6-3 in 62 minutes.
James was down a break early in the 1st but broke back at 1-2 and did not lose serve again. He was 4/4 on break points won. He looked like his usual self -- hitting BIG winners mixed with patches of errors. He also said in the post-match interview that health-wise, he feels good.
R2 against Del Potro is the last match on Wednesday night.
