Can I express my pain at James Blake’s 1st round loss to qualifier Ryan Sweeting at Legg Mason ’10? Seriously, Blake is about the only American male tennis player I can take. This hurts just a bit.
“I think it was pretty evident tonight that I wasn’t doing the things I need to do to win matches. I played tentative on a lot of points,” Blake said, adding that Sweeting deserved credit for dictating play. “That’s the way it goes when you don’t have a lot of matches.”
