Queen's: Blake def Querrey 6-4 4-6 6-3

Blake is finding some good form on grass, :yeah: even though he did choke from 3-0 up in the second set. Dark horse?

He nearly made the awesomest FH on the run to set up MP.

Simon or the Colonel next... I can see him beating either to be honest the way he's striking the ball.

He should have taken that second set, oh well - good win for Blake.

Some fantastic passing shots on the run from James from FH as well as from BH. :worship:
Also great play at the net at some moments. There was a really nice play at 6-3 3-1* when James hit a hotdog lob :worship:
Querrey should improve to become consistent top 30 player. He makes too much mistakes from baseline.

Well, it wasn't exactly a choke, although he had a BP for a double break, Querrey found some form, served well in that period, and he made some excellent nonreturnable FH ground-strokes. Blake just couldn't foloow up. But in the third it all went back to normal level from Sam and that was enough for Blake to run in front again.

He shouldn't have needed 3 sets

Nothing really impressed me that much, just a typical match from Blake.

James has a good shot at this tournament if he keeps it up.

James is on fire! Favorite for Wimbledon.
