    I just hoping that James pulls a comeback - all the way; and does an Goran Ivanisevic move and win his first grand slam title. I know it a long shot but if Goran can do it; James should be able to, too!

    He be the talk of the tennis world for 2011 and beyond. If James wins; he should immediately retire!

    As much as i love Blake, there's no way in hell for this to happen. I'll be happy if he wins more than 3 matches.

    I agree, if he can reach the 4th round, that should be a great showing for James. Anything more is just exceeding expectations.

    I'd say any win is exceeding expectations. James has never gone past the 3rd round and Wimbledon and he has several first round losses. I'd say getting to the 2nd round would be a decent result, in all honesty. Getting to the 4th round would be amazing.

    Yea but Goran had one of the best serves in the world ever (even on second serve he blasted aces), on grass a good serve is veryyyyyyy important.
    The reason Rafa can win it without serve very big is cos he is so good at all other parts...

    James' 1 handed BH will be the key to his Wimbledon win

    4th round?! I'd say it would be success if he hits less than 50 UEs in his first round match.

    James blake could get to the Quarterfinals. Don't be surprised if he does. His go for all type of game translates well at wimbledon. and his serve is highly underrated.

    His "go for all" type of game doesn't translate well on any surface, even if they played on ice.

    If anything, Roddick seems more destined for a "Goran-esque" run given his previous finals at Wimbledon and his past disappointments.

    Blake? Not so much.

    Two rounds at the most: he lacks recent competition at this level, not for other reasons.

    ...with three racquets?

    with all that talent and athletic ability, it's a shame he's trapped into only playing with the last three remaining Dunlops on earth.

    I think he'll fall in the first round. His go for broke style would work, if he was younger. Its clear that being a step slower has affected his game a lot, much like it has with Daveydenko.
