“The match was just poor, not within my game,” Blake said. “I think I played the way too many commentators think I should play. Saying I probably didn’t make very many errors, and I didn’t hit that many winners. And that’s the way a lot of them think I should play, and I think today was a good indication of that’s not the way to win matches for me. I lost to a guy ranked No. 80 in the world. Granted, he didn’t play like No. 80 in the world, he played better than that, but there are a lot of guys out there that can dictate play against me if I try to play like that. That’s just really frustrating for me to play a match like that when I know my game, I know what works best for me, and I didn’t necessarily do it effectively today.”

So, I keep thinking I am forgetting something. Oh yeah, Rafael Nadal played today as well. That was where I was going with the opening heat comment and I fear I have gotten off track. Big news of the day, Nadal won. Considering he has won 101 of his last 102 matches on clay, I supposed that shouldn’t be too much of a shocker. Here is my big prediction for tomorrow: Nadal has a 99% chance of a victory. I’ll even go out on a limb to say the same is true for Sunday. If I’m wrong I’ll be the first one to stuff my high-heeled foot back in my mouth.
