James Blake got the better of Alex in their second round meeting at the Australian Open. Alex had a 3-0 lead in the first set and was able to get in some great rallies with James throughout the match, but eventually James displayed his experience and exceptional shot-making to pull through the match with a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 victory. Despite losing in the second round, Alex is "very satisfied" to have made it through the quallies and to have gotten one match under his belt in the main draw. He can now take this experience and confidence with him to the next events he plays.
