Commentary US Open 8/30/08 Day 6

by Savannah

Speaking of the United States keeping with their policy of featuring American's at night tennis fans were treated to a match between James Blake and Mardy Fish. As was repeated over and over and over the two men are best friends. James is going to be in Mardy's wedding next week, yada, yada, yada. Maybe James wanted to give Mardy an early wedding present since he never really showed up for this match. James played unfocused, uninspired, brain dead tennis and to this viewer there was no reason for him to do so. Best friends have played before and we've had good play. It's not as if they're related after all. James played inspired tennis against Donald Young and had split the first two sets with Steve Darcis of Belgium before Darcis back forced him to retire. Why so blase in this one?

I thought that the Fish/Blake match was quite depressing. Somewhat like Fish playing the best tennis of his life, and Blake playing like a novice. James seemed extremely stiff, he wasn't moving around well. Whereas Fish was moving around the court flawlessly, and he had some great net shots. Out of all the matches, this was probably the worst upset...haha American losing to an American (sigh).
