Of course there are definitions for it. That's just called denial. He's a mere footnote in history. I"m not trashing him, i actually like the guy, but no real results to show for a long career, so he's not in legend category.

Well at least Blake won't be waving goodbye yet. 2013 he'll be gone. Until then he's back in the Top 100 with a last chance to move up the rankings

Milos is lucky it got to a TB, because I feel like he would have lost the match if it went to a 4th set. I feel like the whole momentum of the match would have changed, for Blake's advantage.
Didn't you guarantee that it was going to a 4th set? Remind us again...did that end up happening?

Murray will be tougher with the better return of service. Good luck to Milos.

I would like to see it and be explained why James in no way can be called so.

"Legend" is very relative thing. For someone even Nadal doesn`t belong to it and some random guy vice versa.

He has never been past the QF of a Grand Slam event. Never made it past the 3rd of Wimbledon or Roland Garros. In a 12 year career. He is a footnote in tennis history, mostly for his perseverance through a myriad of personal and health struggles.

Good showing from Blake to reach R3 anyway.

Yay Milos awesome performance especially in the second, awesome effort in the third to hang onto it.

Exactly. The only notable thing of his career is the comeback after the major injury he suffered. Doesn't put in the legend category i'm afraid to say.

Considering the alternative would be paralysis, making 3 QF and thisclose to a semi were it nor for the 2 GOAT's since his 2004 accident is something inspiring

Results, only results. Data isn`t tennis. I would call Santoro and Bahrami legends as well, but you wouldn`t find them in lists of Slam champions.

Blake is no legend I agree, actualy funny to call him that. But he does have some very good results in his career which is in an elite category by any measure, top 5 ranked player at a point, Master Cup Finalist, Around 10 ATP 250 titles, Finalist of a few Master series, was a stone on Nadal shoe earlier on his career, won the Davis cup with the US and over the last 10 years he has been the second best American player behind Roddick. Anyway, no legend, but a protagonist American player for sure.

Again as I said above - it is up to you. I have no problems with you having another opinion, but actually it is simulteneously normal and doesn`t matter for me. Different people, different points of view.

I am wondering where all the complainers about the "serve-bot" are tonight. He broke Blake 3 times in a set, meaning he won those games without a serve. Perhaps, just perhaps he has more to his game, eh?
