No that is NOT a typo!
I was listening to Andy Roddick’s day one interview at usopen.org today and as he was describing how he felt about James Blake I was nodding my head in agreement.
Anyone who has ever watched James Blake play or listened to him give an interview will agree that this man is amazing. He is just one of the many players who plays from the heart. He has a kindness about him that makes it impossible to not like him.
With all this going through my head it reminded me of a photo I snagged off the TV last year during the US OPEN (2009). Blake was between sets and I noticed that his sweat had formed a heart in the center of his shirt. I thought it was so fitting because he is such a sweetheart.
Then of course the weird part of my mind kicked in and sweetheart turned into sweatheart and well…. I will let the photo do the rest of the talking.
I am glad to see that he is playing the US Open this year and I wish him all the best.
GOOD LUCK JAMES BLAKE!
