James in 2011

What do you think will happen? Only one month left and we start next season, maybe the last one for James Hope he still can show his better side before retirement This year he played great in January, maybe after the break he will be able to repeat that in 2011

Re: James in 2011

His performance in Australia will give us a lot of answers. I really hope he comes into the season fresh and fully committed to success at every tournament!!! When James retires it would be one of the saddest days in tennis history.

Re: James in 2011

I can't wait for January. I love spending nights watching AO and I also vividly remember watching del Potro-Blake match this year. It's really nice memory and I hope I'll have much more similar to this one. Beginning of 2011 will be really important for James, so we have to cross our fingers for a good start

Re: James in 2011

Probably, it will be not his last season considering his great love for the game. Different things happen, f.e. Jonas Bjorkman was able to play semifinals of Wimbledon in 2006 at the age of 34, Agassi was finalist of US Open at the age of 35, so maybe James will make a pleasant surprise? Who knows, everything will depend on his health. He should also work on his fitness as his movement is the key to return to TOP 50. Do you know if James has recovered from his knee problems?

Re: James in 2011

From time to time a look for some news, but don't know anything about any injuries. Actually, during off-season players rarely talk about these problems. If they're fine, they practise; if they aren't, they hope to recover. So we need to wait and check how James will perform in Buenos, and then in his first ATP tournaments of the year.

Re: James in 2011

Blake-Fish
6-4 6-4

To be honest, I'm really surprised of this result. I'd thought it would be nice if James won a set, but he managed to win it in quite easily, I think. It's just exhibition tournament, but it always shows a bit of real players' trim and their chances in new season. That's why I'm really pleased to see that. Let's see how he will do in his next match against Monaco on Saturday.

Why is done? James has signed to San Jose and Memphis.
