James Blake Stops The Bleeding At The Australian Open

Saturday, January 19, 2008

The last 24 hours seemed as if a deep wound of red white and blue was opened and bled tennis players left and right! Sam Querry, Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick and on and on and on.

In comes American James Blake with a bandage! In a wonderful five sets of tennis James Blake overcomes a 2 set 4-1 game deficit to defeat Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean 4-6, 2-6, 6-0, 7-6(7-5), 6-2. Blake looked a bit lifeless in the first two sets, but in the third he somehow revived himself and there was no looking back. It was inspiring.

"That's got to be my biggest comeback," Blake said, referring to his second victory after nine straight losses in five-set matches. "Just seemed like every time there was a mountain to climb ... couldn't have been a better feeling than to accomplish what I did."

Congratulations James!!

James will be playing Croatian Marin Cilic, who took out Fernando Gonzalez of Chile, in the fourth round.
