James is back!

James Blake d. Davydenko 6-4, 6-2
No surprise. I think that Blake is playing like he did this time last year. He is almost there now and if there was such as a good time to beat Federer; this is IT! The way I see it Blake has gone from no way near top10 material, to the great run he had last year towards Shanghai.
To me it seems that Blake is back because his forehand is back. Hitting winners and winning almost half of the 1st serve return points. This guy is on the offense and ready to take down the Swiss.

Roger Federer d. Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-7, 7-6
Come on!! Hewitt, this was YOUR day! Let’s say a relatively even match at 1 all. The final set should have been all Hewitt. In my mind, Hewitt played better, and winning the breaker indicated that this could actually mean victory. Roger has not played his best tennis this week (think he played a lot better in Montreal) but still managed to pull through and make the final. Jeez

Prediction for title Cincinnati AMS:
James Blake d. Roger Federer
And I mean it! If life’s fair Blake should have no problem. 0-6 h2h is not a great help, but he should get great support from his fans and play his greatest match ever. To be honest, I do think Federer will win, even playing the ok tennis he played yesterday, but I want Blake to close the gap and gain some confidence before his home slam. It sounds like I don’t like Roger, but I’m not worried as he will hold up the US open trophy in about 3 weeks time.
