Default James in 2010: Australian Open campaign.

James's draw in Brisbane:

[5] QUERREY, Sam (USA) vs BLAKE, James (USA)
GICQUEL, Marc (FRA) vs PETZSCHNER, Philipp (GER)
SERRA, Florent (FRA) vs QUALIFIER
DENT, Taylor (USA) vs [3] MONFILS, Gael (FRA)
So odd to see James being unseeded

I hope he can have a good comeback in Australia!

Default Re: James in 2010: Australian Open campaign.

Blake leads 5-1 in the Head-to-Head against Querrey (but each times it was a difficult match : 5 matches in three sets and 5 tie breaks !) It's gonna be difficult but if Blake go trough this match he will probably go easier to the quaterfinal (maybe against Monfils).

Comon James !

Default Re: James in 2010: Australian Open campaign.

Sam is a tough 1st Round match. He's just back after the arm injury, so who knows how well he will be. I like James' chances, that is unless Querrey turns into the ace-hitting machine he was at Indianapolis '07.

I think I'm used to it outside of slams since he wasn't seeded at most of his tournaments last fall. But being ranked at #44 now, he's extremely unlikely to be seeded for the Australian Open - the first time he would be unseeded at a slam since the 2005 US Open. The good thing about his low ranking is he won't be required to play at four 500 events this year.

James and Andy Roddick won their 1st doubles match over a strong pair Levinsky/Parrot 6-2 6-3
Good start of the season!

it's really important for James to begin this year with some good results, i still belive in James' abilities and skills, even though he's 30 now. can't wait to see him on the court

He's gotta add to the retirement fund! I didn't even notice the racquet change in the recent pics. I wonder why nothing was said about this.

If anyone's awake - James is playing Sam right now, middle of 2nd set.

Default Re: James in 2010: Australian Open campaign.

James beat Sam 4-6 6-3 6-4.

I didn't start watching until the end of the 1st set, so I'm not sure what happened there. But he looked like his usual self - aggressive and going for shots, lots of winners and errors. He was really bashing the hell out of the ball. He hit a couple fast return-of-serve winners that made the crowd gasp real loud.
Good start to the year for James.

James will face Gicquel in the 2nd Rd. H2H is 2-0 - last meeting was in Estoril last year.

If James had won with him on clay, he wins on hardcourt Tomorrow James and Andy plays their singles matches, and also at the end of the day they play doubles.
