When I said he had no legacy, I still liked watching him play and he was an incredibly exciting player. A bit like Tim Henman.

His USO match against Federer is one of the greatest matches in terms of level of play from 2 players at the same time I have ever seen. I think Federer broke James Blake's back in that match.
I felt that in the 2006 TMC final and all their other matches onwards Blake just rolled over. Federer crushed Blake's confidence in their USO match.

Blake's legacy among his fans will be his comprehensive domination of Nadal off clay.

I was just making the point that I have never heard of a player like Blake or Henman (or even Ferrer who is having a similar career to Bkake, beating Nadal in 2 slam QF's) talking about having a legacy.
