James Blake has pulled out of Brisbane and the Australian Open with right knee trouble.
Found that on tennis.com. Hope he'll be fine in February. The season hasn't even begun yet and he's struggling with the injury

Re: Jb 2012

According to his FB entry, he is still rehabbing his right knee. Probably, he wants to be sure that he is healthy and he saves some of his energy. He did the same last year as he started in San Jose in February and it proved to be a good decision.

Re: Jb 2012

He's 32 now, so he has to be careful with his schedule. He knows best what's good for him.

Re: Jb 2012

Maybe should he undergo a surgery ? Wawrinka, Tsonga, Andreev did it and they came back strong after that

Re: Jb 2012

We don't know enough to judge his decisions. Personally, I think it's too late for him for serious surgeries (of course unless it is necessary). It's too risky.

He didn't go to Australia last year so at least he won't be losing anything. I hope everything is good with him
