    just saw him paly a very very high quality match vs. moya 1 st round hambur masters series.. wow..


    .. i must say after seeing the final of italian open nadal-federer yesterday i had a feeling i would be disappointed to compare the 2 matches..
    but surprise surprise.. :)..
    blake -moya match was absolutely great stuff.. increbible rallies and guts..
    i am vey happy to see balke as a real fighter .. he has amazing hands and shots and power but he now shows grit and determination beyong what i thought he had on european clay .. good stuff!

    Wrong place to post. You probably spoiled it for a bunch of people!

    Why is it lately Moya faces either Nadal in the first rd or someone who's associated with Nadal (Blake)...I bet he meets Federer next! :)

    Great job by Blake beating one of the best clay courters on the tour, perhaps this gives him a confidence boost heading into Roland Garros?

    Blake asked for a trainer at 5-5, then received an inner-thigh rubdown from the latest ATP trainer, Jennifer Scholle. He seemed to spring to life then received another calf massage at 6-5. Limped off the court with the victory.

    Great drama for sure, Mary Pierce couldn't write it much better.
