That's an excellent article, Tangy. You should read it when you get a chance.

Thanks, too, for the pictures!

It's been a great USO so far, and yes, James does manage to have the best matches, win or lose.

I'm looking forward to DC!

Re: Rooting for James during the US Open 2007 thread!

What is it about James and USO matches? Ever notice that he's almost always involved in the best matches? Even when he loses it's still a great match.

I haven't read this article yet but I saw it linked on ESPN: "Blake's Fatal Flaw."

WF4EVER, you've been brainwashed by the Federer forum. There's nothing particularly biased about JMac's commentary. He criticizes/praises any and all players at any time, including the "nice" guys like Nadal, Federer, and Blake. That's one reason why I like JMac so much: nobody is safe from him.

Stoked for DC now. Come on, James. Don't be the weakest link again.

Photos from the last match.

Does anyone know what's up between James and John McEnroe?

Every match James has played McEnroe's commentary has been particularly biased in favour of his opponent. When I heard him in the first round I thought it might be that JMac and Russell are friends or something, but in every single match he sounded like he wanted James to lose.

I thought he'd at least want him to do well since he's not only a fellow American but also on the DC team. He seems not to like James at all and I wish I knew why.

Re yesterday's match, I think James paid for playing Pilot Pen. Was it worth it, James?

He has been tired and sluggish most of this tournament and his serve has been atrocious at times. He could have won that match yesterday if he had been able to serve better and I'm sorry he lost, but maybe he should re-think his scheduling at this time of the year.

Yeah, I know he loves his hometown tournament and crowd but after he made Cincy final I don't think that was a wise decision at all. He could have easily made the SF here if he hadn't been so tired.

One thing though, I think he's over the 5-set jitters. He was not scared yesterday. He fought back valiantly after losing his serve int hat first game and even had those 3 MP, but Tommy was good in saving them. The TB reminded me of Hewitt/Federer in Cincy where Hewitt just lost it after hanging tough the whole match through. I guess it just kinda caught up with James finally, but he's a lot more confident these days and that's really great for him.

Anyone good luck for the rest of the season. I hope he can remain consistent and make the Masters Cup again. That would be fantastic.

That match last night was so awesome I'm still glowing over it.

Had to take screencaps to celebrate James' finally winning a five setter. Congrats James.

It should be a great match to watch though, as long as it turns out our way.
