However, it shall be mentioned that James lost a few matches in a similar fashion in his career, e.g. vs Nieminen 0-6,2-6 (Stockholm 2010), Istomin 3-6,0-6 (Cincinnati 2010), Spadea (San Jose 2005). Maybe, it was simply a very bad day at the office or he played conservatively to check his state of health.
That's painful. However, we must remember that he played his last match on tour almost 4 months ago. That's a long period of time. James now is supposed to play in Delray Beach, Indian Wells and Miami. I hope he will do better there.
