Blake Stays Alive As Shanghai Race Heats Up

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

James Blake led a parade of seeds to first-round Swiss Indoor wins on Wednesday as a handful players keep up the fight for one of three spots still open for next month's season wrap up.

Blake, who played the final of the season-ending Masters Cup a year ago against Roger Federer, perked up his qualifying campaign for event from November 11 in Shanghai with a Basle victory.

His 6-3, 6-4 dispatch of Spaniard Oscar Hernandez made up for an opening loss at Madrid a week ago after starting his indoor season with a Stockholm semi-final this month.

The fourth seed stands provisional tenth in the race for one of three remaining spots in the eight-strong China field.

But up to 20 contenders for the places are so tightly bunched that the American is just two points shy of current number eight Tommy Haas - 327 to 329 points.
