I think a lot of people are very surprised with him. He is now winning on surfaces that he never really did well before. In the clay season he had two good torunaments and only did not go further because he faced an Inspiring Ancic in Hamburg and a home crowd favored Gael Monfils in RG. He has now beaten Andy Roddick who many considered the second best player on grass. He is having all of these results before he get to the Summer U.S open hard court series where he can really shine and problably dominate. I think James Blake is will be in the top 5 by the end of year and will make the MCin China. Which is really good for tennis because altough Nalbandian and Ljubicic have really nice games they are never a threat once they enter a tournament where Nadal and Federer are playing. Where Blake has shown to be a lot more then a threat to Nadal and I'm yet to see him face Federer in a fast hardcourt such as in the U.S open, where it can get very interesting.....So It would be really nice for Blake to get to number 3 in the rankings.
