Good match from Blake. Finally he gets a win over a top player after coming close so many times lately.

Overwhelming advantage over Pics who won 2 games from a break point down.

Well, he is playing Almagro, who makes Blake look like Nadal in the mental department.

Do you remember Blake owns Nadal in year 2005 and 2006 and even 2007? Nadal turns it around in 08

No 16....but he is getting worse......(not getting better) (I hate to say it on a player but this is turth) same as Blake getting older which you can't dispute it

I wasnt talking about Blake's H2H with Nadal, I was talking about the fact that Almagro is such an enormous choker he makes Blake look like a mental giant in comparison.

OMG well done James. :hearts:

But then again an offensive player like James should own a retriever like Ferrer 9/10 times, if his game is on.

I want what you mean.....

But Almagro's good in Clay....and he already done it for Blake in RG (that was a 5-set victory two or three years ago....not pretty sure the year).

Shocking result. I thought Ferrer would go deep here, his form couldn't be much better. Maybe he was tired.

Big win for Blake.

Ferrer is a top player on top form. At least a lot more top than Blake.
And you'd better spend your cash on English lessons...

Nah on top form Blake would own Ferrer.

Cool. :yeah:

This is Blake's first win over a top 20 player since beating Davydenko in Estoril last year :)(not counting the Roddick retirement at Queen's Club). He's got a real good shot at making R16 and gaining ranking points - Almagro is a MUCH better match up than Karlovic. ;)

Sander.

After seeing him play at the AO this is not a surprise

Pure offense vs pure defense baseline games, often comes down to whether or not the offensive player is zoning or not. The problem with Blake is that he is in the zone only about 10% of the time, and the rest of the time he is in some different dimension.

Otoh, a guy with his talent should have more upsets over top defensive players (alla Murray or Nadal). I'm not expecting it everytime, but definitely here and there.

So true and so sad. Nice win JB over another of my favs.
