6-4, 3-6, 6-4 ;)

Tough mental match for James :bounce: He trailed 0-2 (0:30) in the third.

I was getting worried that Blake was going to tank again.

It was looking like another JB choke job in that last game. I'm shocked he came back from 0-40 to win the game and the match.

Congrats, James. Please try to get to Shanghai.

I was afraid that will be repeat of Madrid's match against Vliegen, when Blake served for the match at 6:5, lost game to 0, and then tie-break 5-7.

Haas barely won against Llodra in two TBs. Blake should win this easily in straight sets.

He almost choked that last game. I'm proud of him for keeping it together.

When he was down 0-2 0:30, I was like..."here we go again", but when he broke and then won 3 in a row, to go up a break, I knew he would win. GOOD WIN JIMBO! :dance:

I really thought Foghorn Leghorn was going to drop the ball in the last set.

I dont think James will survive Mr. Safin if he is to meet him. Not from what I saw today. But the last serve was a good one for him, hopefully it made him a bit stronger for the matches to come

it's sad, but probably the truth. it would be great to see him do well, but it's not too likely.

Please just get to the semis and qualify :scared:

All,

Whew! That was close. I hope J. B. plays a little better against Haas. Over all - he should be pleased and glad - because he at least won his first match. It felt like it was a tense and touchy day all way round. Six three setters and two 2 set tiebreaks. James and Tommy were lucky to get out of their rounds by the hair on their chiny-chin-chins. LOL!

"STEP IT UP - JAMES"

Be funny if Tommy wins. Hes never beaten Blake before and his current form is shithouse.

Arnaud handed Blake those breaks in the last set with a lot of UE.
If you want to learn french swear words, then that match was the perfect opportunity. :lol: Clement was even telling the camera man to stop bothering him and go film Blake instead.
