At least that is what comes across from his interviews as well as the Sixty Minutes show. I think that is why the woman I work with was so touched by that interview. She mentioned today that I had to remind her about how he is doing once the season starts again.

Re: James News!

I had a very nice Christmas and I'm looking forward to a Happy New Year And I'm also in agreement with the nurse you work with You know some people when bad things happen to them they come out bitter, but James has chosen to come out better. And it was his choice how he decided to accept what all had happened to him. And I'm glad he made the right choice

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: James News!

Thanks Tangy for the James' article. James has had so much happen to him and has come out of everything so well the articles about him are just real "feel good" articles. They are just a joy to read

Re: James News!

news about James's new racquet with Prince
=============
Blake Working With Prince On New Racquet Design
By Tennis Week
02/17/2006

A familiar face belonging to James Blake may make it to store shelves near you this year.
The U.S. Open quarterfinalist, who began playing with Prince racquets in January after signing a seven-year endorsement deal with the company in December, is working with Prince designing a Blake-inspired racquet that could be released later this year.

"They are working with me and we're working together, and I'm extremely excited about it because it's kind of the first time I've had a real opportunity to work with the designers, with the people who kind of tailor make them for me," Blake told Tennis Week in a recent interview. "I really do hope, and in a lot of the tests, Tom Ross who I work with at Prince that does the racquets, has told me that he's made these models for me and we're getting closer to the one that's going to be on the shelves and stuff. He's kind of had a few other people trying them, and they all seem to like it. It's exciting to me to know that people are liking what I like in terms of a racquet."

The 20th-ranked Blake started the year winning the Sydney title — his third tournament title in a six-month span and his first title playing with a Prince racquet. Blake, who played most of his career with a Dunlop 300G before signing with Prince, said designers are continuing to refine the racquet that he will eventually endorse.

"Once they come to the conclusion of what's best for going on the shelves and what's best for me to be using out there, I might even have some creative design input, which would be fun, and something I never really expected, for me to be helping to design a racquet," Blake said. "I think that's going to be a great thing for Prince and definitely a great thing for me. I think they're planning on doing a — I don't know if they're going to call it a James Blake model — but I think I'll be kind of the spokesperson for that racquet, and that will be something exciting for me.

Currently, Blake is playing with an all-black experimental frame he said is not available in stores.

Re: James News!

James was on the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson (sp?) Last night... This morning. He looked great and he was really funny and witty.

Craig congratulated him on his win, and then tried to bring up the Hewitt Us Open fiasco, but James was having non of it, he said that it was water under the bridge and that they had moved foward. They talked about his injuries and how he was playing. All in all it was pretty good, a little too short, but good

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo
