OMG noone wants to make it to the TMC :eek: :eek:

From what I've seen in the 2nd set, Ancic didn't have to do much besides serving great. Blake was shanking forehands all over the place :rolleyes:

First things first, it's always nice to see Super Mario winning.
Blake throwing his toys out of the pram with his pathetic jibe at the umpire, and losing comfortably, made the occasion even better.

I expected Mario to win this. He played very well. Blake, what to say, he should retire. Well done Mario.

It's good to see Mario healthy and winning. :yeah: This bodes well for next year.

good to see Blake go, he can join his buddy Fish :wavey:

Blake went out their with the completely wrong tactic. He should have went out there and kept the ball in more, moved Ancic around and mixed things up but in reality he went out their and bombed every ball pretty much, poor returns really. Led to about 30 unforced errors, nobody else to blame.

Just like Fish, Blake walked off looking thoroughly pissed off.

Well Fish tried to put on a smiley face and walked off clapping, but he was obviously pissed.

He said some pretty threatening things.

Blake no interested in getting to TMC? What a joke...he should worry about trying to gain some confidence before the DC final...like the team isn't worried enough, they have this dolt losing all over the world and looking like a fool. I don't mean to discredit to Mario in any way, he's a gifted player. Blake should remove himself from the DC team.

Blake was atrocious. He could barely hit a groundstroke off either wing.

Anyone with a brain could see Blake was getting nowhere near Ancic's 1st serve by standing inside the baseline. Why not move back a little bit?

What a mug, go get yourself a brain Blake.

Expected loss for the joker of the top 10. Blake sucks. Can't wait for his TMC points from last year to come off. Then maybe he will finally exit the top 10.

the nice thing is - many guys behind Tommy Haas in the race to Shanghai, including the likes of Blake, Gasquet, Berdych and Moya had early exits in Madrid. if only he would play a tournament next week. he has to play Shanghai, damn it.

Blake played a sucky match but at least the cloud has a tiny lining of silver in that he actually cared a lot. He was getting seriously angry with his misses.

Very good win for Mario.
Very important for a confidence boost.
Keep up Mario, I hope to see you in quarters in Friday.

Blake was afraid of another loss in the deciding set tie-break after wasting MP's - thus he lost in straight sets :lol: ;)

He always does that against big servers, it was especially hilarious to see James trying to hit return winners of Ivo's serve at RG. He merely robbs himself of time, I am surprised nobody has pointed it out to him, or, more likely, they have but James has not listened.

That is the reason I do not consider James to be great on the return of serve, he is awesome to watch when he is on but he is prone to losing to anybody when he is off and he is very vulnerable to big servers.

I'd say he's a good returner when he plays guys who don't have huge serves. I mean, I think he returns Nadal's serve possibly better than anyone else, and he often attacks 2nd serves. But when he plays a big server = :retard:

With the position he stands, he's giving himself a ludicrously short amount of time to react if a serve is coming at 130mph or more. It's simply not possible to do it consistently, he might connect with the odd one but you can't do it regularly. Not even Federer could standing there.

Blake will never be good until he can develop a plan B.

You're wrong as usual, Ferrero lost.
