Blake to Play Friend Fish For Final

Saturday, August 25, 2007

In no less than two weeks, James Blake has secured a spot in yet another US Open Series final. After a fairly grueling match against the determined Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu that came down to a tie-break in the third set, Blake eventually prevailed with a score of 6-4, 3-6, 7-6. After Blake and Mathieu swapped sets, it was relatively toe-to-toe in the third. However, the set turned into a bit of a nail biter when Blake served for the match at 5-3 but was broken by Mathieu. Nevertheless, Blake shone through in the tie-break and that's all that matters. He now has an appointment with one of his best buds, Mardy Fish.

So, what's up next in New Haven you ask? Why a Saturday night fish fry of course! I love ya Mardy, but I'll be pulling for Blake tomorrow night.

Two Americans on American soil in a US Open Series final, what a weekend!
