Blake Rides a Semi-Final Win into the Cincinnati Finals

Saturday, August 18, 2007


WOW! James Blake closed out the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters Series semi-final like a Black Tennis Pro should, in style!! The forehand that he whipped cross court to seal Davydenko's fate was of the most wicked fashion. Any other time I'd be rooting for Davydenko, I like him, but never against Blake. My brotha lined 'em up and knocked 'em down incredibly well this week, his fire is definitely on full burn! The serve and blasting ground strokes of Blake rode home a 6-4, 6-2 finals berth for the world No. 8.

A lot of the Cincinnati fans were standing behind Blake in the interview booth and they were just as pumped as he was. During the post-match interview, ESPN's Chris Fowler said "the sobering news is that you will meet Federer in the finals tomorrow, do you think that you can take Federer down? Blake pointed at the crowd behind him and said "well, I've got the crowd support!" The crowd responded with "Blake, Blake, Blake, Blake......." What a night.
The enjoyment of the night was everywhere. I love the sign that Patrick McEnroe made and passed to the crowd "Patrick McEnroe Rules," too funny.
