With an overpowering serve and aggressive play Tuesday night, James Blake dispatched defending champion David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-4 and put the rest of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic field on notice that he's not fading away.
Former top-25 player Taylor Dent is retiring from professional tennis.
No. 2 seed John Isner fought through another final-set tiebreaker with a 4-6, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (7) victory over Gilles Muller of Luxembourg in the second round of the Atlanta Tennis Championships on Wednesday night.
In a statement released Monday by his agent, Dent says he wants to stay active in the sport and "explore opportunities ... that my full tournament scheduled never allowed."
"Unfortunately, double-faults have always been a staple of my game," Dent said. "I enjoy giving away a few free points, but any time you try to improve or thinker with things _ I'm trying to improve my accuracy a lot with my serve, both first and second _ you're going to have a dip-down period."
