- - BLAKE 6-2 4-6 4-6 - MATCH! Blake tried to roll back the years, but in the end the youngster from Japan had his day. That's another American exit today after Querrey and Levine, to go with Roddick's departure yesterday. Not a tournament for the hosts to remember in Cincinnati so far.
- - BLAKE 6-2 4-6 - SET! Nishikori has risen to number 17 in the world in the last year, and a large part of that ascent has been his tenacity. Blake took an early 2-0 lead in the second set, but the Japanese roared back and has forced a decider.
- - BLAKE 6-2 - SET! Blake's best tennis days may be behind him, but the world number 106 has begun extremely well against up-and-coming Japanese hope Kei Nishikori. The winner of this one faces the winner of Baghdatis-Raonic, also live at present.
