In the toilet and still hanging on the side because of these wildcards getting him points. They should be for up and comers, not keeping Blake around.

Istomin seems to be on a roll now, but Blake is always inspired when playing during the USO series. I think this will go 3 sets with Blake winning, though I wouldn't be shocked at all if Istomin came out on top :shrug:

I think Istomin will win but it's kinda hard to predict when James will win nowadays.

Depends on James and where he's at. Hasn't played a match in 2 weeks, and that was a loss in R1, so hopefully he's been practicing since then and is in rhythm. I'll say Istomin because I think he'll put a lot of pressure on James with his power, and James won't handle it.

Istomin should be ashamed if he loses. This is the softest R1 and Young is in the draw.

Ouch, Blake gets a qualifier in the opener and it's Istomin who been pretty hot lately. Blake can't catch a break.

You seem so depressed and bitter like Blake beat you up when you were younger or something, and I don't think I've seen you post something positive in recent memory. Cheer up man, life isn't so bad!!

I think Blake. He just know to play oh hard surface. This year played just 12 matches and 10 matches on hard court. In last month played quarter-final in LA .
