Defending Champ Blake Falls In Stockholm

Saturday, October 13, 2007

The threepeat by American James Blake was not to be. After a 13-match string of success, Blake was defeated today by Sweden's own Thomas Johansson who saved five match points to knock off the top seed 3-6, 6-1, 7-6(7-3).

Blake had his opportunities to reach the final for a third straight year, but couldn't finish off his Swedish opponent.

Johansson saved a match point on his serve at 4-5 in the third set, then four more again on his own serve at 5-6 in the third. The momentum carried into the tiebreaker, as the 2002 Australian Open champ opened a 4-0 lead on the way to completing the triumph.
