But there are little stories mixed in about his childhood, scoliosis diagnosis, etc. It's mostly off-court issues and very little specifics about actual matches (except for the Agassi one, of course!).
Never read better review

Re: James in 2011

It could be better, but hope he will manage to overcome qualifier.
He also received a WC to the Miami tournament

Re: James in 2011

The qualifier James will play is Guccione.

Re: James in 2011

3 set win over Guccionne so the 2R streak continues.

My most despised player Roddick up next. James would have to be really sharp to win. Hopefully he can pull it off and not get sucked into making too many UEs.

Re: James in 2011

People do you have any idea where I can watch it? However, there's one problem: something's wrong with my internet connection and I need a source with lower quality or a possibilty to change it to avoid lags. I'm still looking for it, but if you find anything, please let me know

Re: James in 2011

I guess he'll also get a WC to Miami main draw, won't he?

I'm pretty sure. He doesn't seem to be in bad form, he just needs a better draw.

Re: James in 2011

Also I don't know why but I think that his partnership with Fila is over, he's wearing a 2009 fila shirt, fila thomas reynolds cap, and the shoes are nike...

Yes, he got it. It was cofirmed few days ago. Hope he will have some Spanish players in his part of the draw (but not Nadal!) and appaer at least in 3rd round.

I think it is. It's his official website and the webmaster seems OK. I e-mailed him a few times. There's nothing to worry about, you'll get an autogrpahed book. I advise you to buy it there.
