Nice to see him finally not falling in the 2nd round!
Blake won another close match he had 15-40 when 5-5 in the 3rd set!

:haha:

New quality - awful choker Blake on verge of retirement becomes to win tight matches, two days ago saved MP against Russell, today double mini-MP and later was two points away from defeat.

Tie-break choke-records in the final sets (all levels):

Blake 13-20
Bellucci 4-10

From the score it seems like this was nearly the exact same as their match near the end of last year in Sweeden, Bellucci starts well and takes the first, Blake plays better in the 2nd and 3rd and just edges it.

Blake's backhand will be totally overwhelmed by D'Jokes hard strokes from both wings :)

I expected him maybe to squeak a first round win here. But to win twice in a row and do it on a third set tiebreaker both times is beyond anything anyone expected I would think.

The over 30s doing well here against the young guns... fairytale stories even if it doesn't last that long.

Blake is going to be the risk-taker in the match so can only hope he plays like a few years ago and cleans the lines about 70% of the time. If he does that, then Djoker's gonna have to do the same to win.

Finally i'm impressed by Blake in a positive way
I don' know if Belluci played like a mug or Blake was just better but a win is a win :yeah:

Depends if Boredo, Troicki or Simon are seeded.

Boredo isn't losing matches like these. Unfortunately I'd say.

You know, I'm argentinian and I love brazil. I was so pissed off when some local news called him "The new Guga".
Come on!!!!

Unbelievable, Blake winning 2 matches in a row in 3rd set tiebreaks? Nice stuff James :hatoff:

Nice 3rd round match between Blake and Nole awaits :) (provided Nole doesn't lose tonight against Istomin)

1. Robredo has just reached the quarterfinals of Indian Wells and wins a lot of matches.
2. Troicki has won his match and is playing great this season.
3. Simon is a candidate though....

Unbelievable, Blake winning 2 matches in a row in 3rd set tiebreaks?

...with possible quick straight set defeat twice:
- 3-6 3:5 against Russell
- 2-6 4:4 against Bellucci

It didn't look promisingly in both matches, Blake in both matches won less points:
102-110 Russell
87-100 Bellucci

Bellucci won 13 points more, but still lost. He was trashing Blake in the beginning. Blake used the experience, earned a gifted double fault in the second set and then made a good match in the third.

Belluci is the king of losing third set tiebreakers.... but he´s young, hopefully he´ll change this and start to win them, clay is coming, which is a great thing for him

Pure hype, hermano.

Clownucci can't tie Guga's shoes.

GGL can fight with him for this.

He sure can.

He's not that young and I doubt clay will help him that much. It's not like the SA clay court swing was any good for him.
