That surface has nothing to do with clay.

Blake produced some good shots, but it was also obvious why his results are less than decent on clay. After hitting approximately two shots cross court he went down the line, some of them attempts to hit a direct winner. Even juniors know that is pretty much a suicide on clay. Worked for Blake today, but RG will be a LOT slower. He might actually have to use some topspin with his shots there.

Of course he does, but wasting his clay talent and time on these nobodies will jeopardize his chances against Tsonga in FO final.

I am quite sure that he knows what that term means. Or at least he heard about it... on TV... or something...

Blake has a topspin forehand....but it really doesn't fit with his style of play. He has to go guns ablazin or he just gets out of sorts.

Blake was 0-5 at the Madrid Masters when it was indoor HC. It gets moved to clay and now he wins! :haha: :yeah:
