James Blake: When will he return to the top 10?

One of the legends in the Federer era along with Roddick, Nalbandian, Hewitt, Safin, and Luberjic, he was an dominant top 10 player.

His form has dropped as of late, but his return is only a matter of time. :worship:

Unfortunately he got stuck with a terrible draw facing Marco R1 Wimbledon but how far do you think he will go at the USO series events and when will he return to the top? :worship:

James Blake has more class than guys like Djokovic and Murray has today.

He needs to get into the top 90 first :haha:

And to answer the question: Never!

I don't think Blake can win the USO unfortunately. Unless he can repeat his epic 2008 win at the Olympics against Roger Federer.

He completely destroyed Fed in that game. Amazing.

I do think he has a serious shot at winning Cincy and Montreal to rack up some points and get to the 2nd week at the USO.

Well we all know James is more talented than Federer so I don't see why he can't win the US Open, but we'll see in a few months time.

How is it trolling to ask when a former top 10 player will return? If I ask can Hewitt come back into the top 10, is that trolling?

Del Potro is having a good comeback into the top 20 after dropping out of the top 100.

Federer had a comeback and regained No. 1 after his crushing losses in 2008.

James Blake was a former world No. 5 who defeated top players in his time like Fed. Its only a matter of time.

Blake will end the American Grand Slam drought by winning a golden calendar year Grand Slam in 2012.

He'll obviously be back in the top 10 after he's won the Australian Open.

I hope you only kidding. The gap between Delpo and Blake is huge for Delpo's advantage.

So obviously they're about even.

Blake destroyed Federer as recent as 2008.

Blake in his prime could beat Del Po easily and challenged players like Andy Roddick.

You gotta love a good troll don't ya..? Fed's Mate and Topspin doc have have really dropped the ball lately and JB No 1. has taken it and ran with it.

Good for the forum.

Now I have a question for you good sir. Can Hewitt make it back into the top 10? He destroyed Federer back in 2003...

I'll answer your question with another question. Who will win the race to #1 out of those two?

Obvious troll is obvious.

BTW, the answer is never, but I do think he can be a top 30-50 player again, but he needs to start playing ATP tour matches more regularly and get in a rhythm against ATP competition and start getting his match sharpness all the way back.

:lol: Destroyed Fed, Beat Del Potro easily, but only challenge Roddick? :lol:

Hewitt can if he just ups his game.

:lol: Only up his game, you say? Yes, it's very easy apparently.

Some of you are underrating James. He can definitely be a threat during the USO series if he's fit and when he gains more match sharpness.
