This tournament was actually good for Blake. A win over Harrison and getting close to beating Ebden actually gives him some confidence, despite the fact that he is never going to do anything big on the tour again.

my deream is Blake-Nadal 1st round at US open, James pulling it in an epic 5 setter

I very much doubt it. This is just another bitter pill to swallow and one step closer to packing it in. These are the sort of matches he certainly doesn't want to be losing.

Poor from Blake after such a huge upset in the previous round :facepalm:

But it's better than losing in straight sets in R1 which he does in pretty much every other tournament ;)

Ebden's done much to gift the match (2 DFs in a row to get broken), but it was not enough.

He couldn't move anymore after 2 sets, too old for tennis.

Blake is cerainly getting old and "losing it" but on a good day he could still be a nightmare early round matchup for a top player and possibly pull off an upset. Ebden is so mediocre :zzz: :yawn:

Blake is just a shell of his former self. What he's gonna pull at USO12 is jack shit.

I know :sad: but make it to the 2nd or 3rd round would be very much appreciated

Was drained by the time he got to 4-2 in the 3rd. He's too old for this shit.

Ebden played horribly but Blake was just burnt out :help:

The fact that Ebden managed to serve 20 aces says it all.

Looked like his back was bugging him, but really bad loss for James, even given how his last few years has been. He literally just tries to hit a winner on every shot, and its super frustrating to watch. literally every single damn shot.

I predicted this. Blake the flake snake fake should retire. He is and always has been a disgrace to tennis.
