    lol nice one. The Adobe Photoshop Open? That Nadal one is a fake too, I presume.

    Still very well executed. You did it? Kudos!

    Its Photoshopped, you can see very clearly that it's not the real shirt on the right/bottom side. But nice picture anyway, fix that side.

    Obvious giveaway: those Nike hero shirts were not even out during last year's US Open.

    If it'd be true there would be at least reason to respect Blake.

    Hi likes Fed too much. If he didn't, he may have won Indian Wells.

    Yeah he likes everybody too much, doesn't have the killer instinct where your opponent is the enemy, which is ironic to me how come he beats up on the guy with the most killer instinct on tour right now, nadal.

    That's because he has the game to beat Nadal when he's playing his best and Rafa isn't -- on hardcourts anyway. I'm not sure about any other surface, even grass.

    James was playing the best tennis of anyone at Indian Wells -- well above Rafa, and even arguably better than Federer.

    But once Federer started being Federer, James went "Oh, no, I may beat him. Can't do that." Again, the proverbial cheap card table, which is what we are used to seeing against Fed.

    What was great earlier in the week became ordinary, and not because Fed played 5 sets of exquisite tennis. Blake just didn't hold up his side of the deal.

    I can't blame someone like Almagro for not holding up against the Fed onslaught. But geez, someone like Nalbandian should be able to do so.

    If they can't, who can?

    I think we know the answer.
