Awesome display Tojo!!

Blake was 6-5* 40-0 up in the third set, had one more MP in that game and one MP at 5-4* 40-30. :eek: :eek:

Blake took a injury time out in the second set when having some back problems. He recovered though and all in all it was a great match.

ToJo is back in the top again. I didn't see it coming. I can honestly see him breaking back in the top 20s next year if he can stay motivated.

Magnus Norman has done some wonders with the AO champ from 2002.

Now go crush Dr Ivo in the final!! :cool:

Classical Blake - he is still so weak in these situations. He can win these kind of matches only against another chokers like Mathieu, Calleri or Del Potro.
BTW, after winning 7 tie-breaks in a row, now lost 4th cosecutive.

James loves to waste match points, he tasted it at the US Open (3 mps) and today (5 mps):eek:...

Congrats to Tojo, awesome fight in front of his home crowd, hopefully he can take the title now!

ToJo :yeah: :worship: What a fighter

I wonder how James feels now, so many wasted chances, not only those 5 mps, but all those bps.

This is the 4th time when Blake lost a match after wasting 5 match points - previously against Grosjean, RRH & Karlovic.
Blake is a special headcase - that's a fact.
Yes, being #1 Ivo fan I was pulling heavily for Blake. Ivo/Blake (or Ivo anybody) would be a close match and I knew Blake would get some sweaty palms in the clutch moments (Ivo time). ToJo will have the fans behind him in the final too, so that was another reason I wanted Blake. Of course I will be pulling for Ivo, but I wouldn't mind Ivo losing to ToJo as much as if he ended up losing to Blake. ToJo could use the win, especially in his home country and being 32 years old now, and coming back from the serious eye injury.
