1. Free falling through the rankings, James Blake finds himself 52nd in the world and having to play Andy Roddick in the first round of the Regents Morgan Keegan Championships in Memphis. From being as high as 4th on November 20, 2006, being the solid number two ranked American on tour, and becoming accustomed to playing Roddick in finals and semi-finals (in their last 4 meetings, 2 were finals and 2 were semi-finals), Blake is now out of the Top 50 and only the fourth highest ranked American. In 2002, Blake lost to Roddick in 3 sets (4-6, 6-3, 5-7) in the Memphis final.  Unless Roddick is really tired from his San Jose final run, I don’t see this match   being anywhere as close as their 2002 meeting.
