Re: James in Oz 2007

Yes I agree, that's a first tough match of the season.. Could easily see James losing that one, but hopefully not!

Well he just beat Nadal, so his confidence levels will be very high. That said, his game doesnt match up very well against James so I still expect JB to come through in the end.

Re: James in Oz 2007

Both Malisse and Tursunov have withdrawn so it really has opened up for James to get through his quarter.

James plays Kevin Kim tomorrow!!

GO JAMES!!

No longer a tough first round or draw; at least on paper I know you start slow JB but let's see what you got!

Re: James in Oz 2007

James brushes by Kevin in 46 minutes with a 6-3 6-4 victory.

Koubek or Healey up next, both are very winnable!
