Thanks. Some haters were trying to make it sound like James was too arrogant to play AO qualies.

Not sure how I feel about him having no coach, but I guess he has enough experience on tour...

Default Re: James in 2011

In my view he wants to be on tour as long as possible whcih is rather obvious... He started playing late (he was 20) and he doesn't want his retirement yet.
Decision on leaving coach is weird, but it seems James know what he's doing. We'll see. Can't wait to see him back in 2011.

James confirmed he had received wild cards to all events he had planned to play (San Jose, Memphis, Delray Beach). Good luck there!

Default Re: James in 2011

Because there were so many withdrawals for San Jose, James ended up not even needing the WC.

Quote:
[6] Benjamin Becker (GER) - Ricardas Berankis (LTU)
Dustin Brown (GER) - Donald Young (USA)
Qualifier - James Blake (USA)
Milos Raonic (CAN) - [4] Xavier Malisse (BEL)
^This is his quarter of the draw. Qualifying draw isn't out yet, so I have no idea who he could face.

It's hard to predict how far James can go. But I hope he will make some big surprises there

You are wrong, it's simple to predict he gonna lose with Levine or his deep run gonna finish on 2nd round.

James should beat Levine.
Beating Mallisse/Raonic would be hard. These guys have been playing great this season so far. Reaching at least semis here would prove that James can come back to top 50 in a short time. We'll see!
Come on JB!!

Default Re: James in 2011

San Jose R1: James def Levine 7-5 6-1 in 73 minutes.
James seemed very rusty, but looked like he was moving ok. No noticeable injury issues. He was making a lot of errors in the 1st set which was keeping Jesse in the set. But in the 2nd, Jesse was clearly having issues with his knees (both were heavily taped) and he wasn't really running down balls or trying hard. I'm more interested in seeing how James will do against Malisse or Raonic in the next round.

Default Re: James in 2011

James faces Raonic in R2 on Wednesday. Raonic hit 20 aces against Malisse and some of his serves went over 140 MPH. If he plays like this later today, James will have problems.

From Raonic's blog on the San Jose website:
Quote:
Speaking of players you grow up watching, my next match is against James Blake. It's nice playing these guys you used to watch. I think I'll have an advantage - I'll know him more than he'll know me! So I'll use that as much as I can. I know he'll go for his shots. I'll just take care of my serve and hopefully I'll get a few chances on the return. I look forward to it.
