  • Berlocq beats Blake in Houston first round

    4/10/12 4:05 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Carlos Berlocq is through to the second round in Houston after defeating James Blake in three sets on Monday. Next up for Berlocq is Bjorn Phau.

    Carlos Berlocq scored a 6-4, 2-6, 6-1 victory over James Blake in the first round of the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships on Monday night. Berlocq survived an injury scare and won the last six games of the match to prevail in two hours and four minutes.

    The Argentine, who always does his best work on clay, broke twice in the first set before serving it out at 5-4. A momentum swing came in the second, as Blake raced to a 5-2 advantage at which point Berlocq took an injury timeout for a calf issue.

    Blake promptly broke to end the second set then held to open the third. Suddenly, however, Berlocq regained his form and aggressiveness. The world No. 37 soon broke for a 2-1 lead and was off to the races without losing another game the entire rest of the way.

    Berlocq served at 73 percent but he double-faulted eight times. He will go up against Bjorn Phau for a spot in the quarterfinals.
