Nole's quarter of the draw is the worst possible place for such ambitions though. Still, if he gets to QF - he should beat Fish, but Cilic/Raonic will surely be tricky opponents - he's in with a chance vs Novak for sure, albeit as a clear underdog. I liked what I saw from Tsonga, his BH seems more stable and his body language is quite positive. This was a great match, Blake really turned back the clock for this one - first set is one of the best sets of tennis you'll see all year, incredible tennis especially in the first few games.

Yeah of course, but QF minimum for me. I don't li8ke to have too high expectations because i get disapointed too often

This was a good match, Blake looked better than he has in a long time.

Good to see the fire in Blake, I thought he would go down easily.

From watching highlights, it seemed like Tsonga was very intense. He looked like he was pissed off

Outside the Americans and Federer, no one seems to care for Blake I've noticed

Great match! Offensive and beautiful tennis.
Still, a lot of UEs from both, Tsonga needs to fix that if he wants to defeat the big names again.
He can play really good, come on Jo...

Fergus Murphy was the real winner on the night.

He's a national treasure.

Ya he was cool-headed as usual. Not quite sure why Blake was even arguing with him, but Fergus just doing his job like a pro.

Blake has shown us time and time again he's not done. All the shots are still there, it's just his movement has declined so much as expected.

But I don't think it's time to retire just yet, he still puts in great matches and is currently top 100. Realistically if he can just play a few more good matches he can definitely get back in the top 60 perhaps.

Good to see Blake give a top player some trouble. He still has game.
