James Blake – USA Gold Hopeful?

I’m a huge tennis fan, and a huge James Blake fan…seems he’s the only American man left in Olympic tennis with a shot to medal…exciting, but the Olympics and tennis don’t seem to be a compelling match-up…Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny said it best in an interview with the ITF: “In all other sports they have four years to be ready for the Olympic Games. Tennis players don’t have even have four days. … It will be a tough Olympics for all players.” Maybe that explains why Roddick and others didn’t show…of this caricature of Blake a friend of his told me, “You captured his exact power and expression when your looking at him across the net!”… thanks, enjoy and good luck James!
