    My theory on Blake’s early exits is his set up is not working for him. He is too good to lose as early as he has been.
    He hits too big and makes too many unforced errors to be a counter puncher but he ends up usually dominating points or on the run trying to counter punch or take high risk shots to get back in a point after giving an opponent a weak shot.

    When you see a player string at extra high tension it usually means they are trying to get more control. That’s fine when you put a good stroke on the ball but one slight miss hit or being a little out of position at that tension means your usually going to give opponents a short ball.
    Dunlop makes great frames and who knows what mold he is playing with or how he has it set up but when you depend too much on high tension to keep control over your ball you have very little margin for error.

    Maybe they can find a set up he can control and loose a little of that tension.

    He's always played a high risk game. I think the early exits are a sign that his career may be winding down.
