I'll make some noise. I was able to catch his match against Kiefer on the Tennis Channel the other night. He looked about as good as I've ever seen him, although I wish he had capitalized on his chances in the second set. He also was a little reckless in the tiebreak, but that's to be expected from him. Sometimes the risks pay off, and sometimes they nail him. Looks like he's playing well in general, so hopefully this translates into success at the AO!

I'll make some noise, too!

I find it encouraging to see James serving in the 60%+ 1st serve range the last two matches. To me, his serve seems like one of the weakest parts of his game. Hopefully, all the work he put in on his serve during the off-season pays off this year.

^The switch is official. It says in the article there might be his own Fila line... but that's just a rumor for now. He must have gotten a ton of $$$ to switch to Fila from Nike. This might be better since a lot of top men wear Nike (Nadal, Federer, Del Potro, Monfils). He will probably get more attention from Fila, especially if he really does get his own line.

But I wonder - will this mark the end of the J-Block shirts?

Nearly all the Nike logos were edited out of pictures on his website - weird.

Edit: I found a better practice picture with him wearing the Fila gear here -> http://blog.tennisweek.com/?p=329

FILA AND JAMES BLAKE TO COLLABORATE ON MEN’S APPAREL AND FOOTWEAR COLLECTION

The first collaboration of its kind in the sport of tennis - Blake to serve as inspiration for collection

Sparks, MD - Fila announced today that it has entered into a collaboration arrangement with ATP World Tour star James Blake to develop a collection of men’s apparel and footwear. The collection will incorporate the heritage of the Fila brand with a contemporary twist inspired by Blake’s signature style. He will collaborate with Fila’s design team to create a co-branded collection. The yet to be named collection will target today’s active male and will be the basis for the development of a long-term licensing business for Blake.

The collection will include tennis, golf, fitness and lifestyle apparel, performance and lifestyle footwear and accessories for men. Fila and James Blake will also explore other product categories as opportunities arise in the market. The collection will debut with a limited collection of tennis and fitness apparel that will be unveiled just before the 2009 US Open in New York. The collection will officially launch for the Spring Summer 2010 season.

James will wear Fila branded or co-branded tennis apparel and footwear exclusively on court and he will be featured in Fila’s worldwide marketing efforts. He is the first top ten American male in over ten years to sign with Fila. James will debut in Fila’s Collezione Apparel Collection and the Fila Alfa shoe at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with an athlete of James Blake’s caliber,” said Gene Yoon, Chairman of Fila. “Fila has been associated with champions in tennis and other sports for over 35 years. We are certain that through our collaboration with James, we will create a range of products that combines the rich style of our historic brand and James’ active and sophisticated lifestyle.”

“I have always had an affinity for the Fila brand,” said James Blake. “Ever since Borg graced the courts of Wimbledon in Fila, I have always been attracted to the Italian style, grace and sophistication of the Fila brand. My collaboration with Fila is much more than an endorsement arrangement. It will serve as the foundation of a business venture that I that will continue to build for years to come.”

Fila has a long and distinguished history in the world of tennis. The company has endorsement agreements with several ATP Tour and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour athletes, is a major sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open, Tennis Tournament at Indian Wells, and the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships and is the footwear licensee with The Championships at Wimbledon.

About Fila: Established in Italy in 1911, Fila is a leading manufacturer of sport and leisure footwear and apparel distributed worldwide. The internationally respected company, having gained world class recognition in tennis apparel, has developed brand recognition by marketing products with a high design and style content that are endorsed by professional artists and athletes from around the world.
A long-term licensing business sounds pretty good, huh? Now he'll get to wear his own designed clothes. This deal is better than I thought it would be!
