Bad luck to run into Nadal so early two tournaments in a row.  He held his own though.

Blake is going to Brisbane in 09!!! Yay, I'll see him there! Confirmed by Brisbaneinternational.com.au, here is alink to the article: http://www.brisbaneinternational.com.au/2009/10/blake-is-brisbane-bound

Crowd favourite James Blake is bound for Brisbane this January.
The former world No.4 is the latest addition to an already strong line-up at Brisbane International 2010.
“The Brisbane International will be great to start my Australian Open preparation.  I have heard great things about the event and I have never had the opportunity to visit,” Blake said.
“I am excited to be making my debut next year and experiencing the new tournament and tennis complex in Brisbane.”
“Tennis fans in Australia have always been very supportive so I hope they will get behind me during what I hear is a fantastic event.”

Yeah, he took him very close though and nadal only just got through. He has now changed coach, splitting with Brian Barker who coached since the age of 12! Kelly Jones is doing a good job, and he is playing awesome tennis that if he continues will re-unite with a top 10 ranking! Hopefully, he will do well in Valencia!

It would be great to see Blake make an Agassi like resurgence in 2010.

To be honest, the way he is playing is the best I've seen him play! I honestly think he will, with a reappearance in the Top 10.

James really gave DelPo all he could handle.
Then we will fight in the shade.

JB gets by the first round despite a mental lapse at the end of the 2nd set.
Nice to see him back on court!

James should have won today.  He was up a set and a break...and then went crazy, losing something like 8 games in a row!

Yikes, my wishful thinking led to misreading the score line.  I thought Blake pulled it off.

Apparently the meltdown at the end of the 2nd set was more than he could handle.

Sad to see.
Fear of losing leads to the mental breakdown of looking for any excuse.

That's a bummer. :(

I have on my hands a quite interesting polo shirt for a review. A Tommy Hilfiger you will not really notice if you watch her other videos
