ATP Challenger - Blake reaches Sarasota final- View: 1634 by Prakash
American veteran James Blake, back to the Challenger circuit in a bid to regain some form and confidence, advanced to the final of the ATP Challenger in Sarasota with a 6-2, 7-6 win over compatriot Ryan Sweeting. Blake will now meet Alex Bogomolov in the finals who beat Candian Frank Dancevic in three sets.
Blake is a former world no. 4 but has struggled with knee injuries in the last 18 months and seen his ranking drop outside the top 100. Many expect this to be his last full season on tour. .
