2010 U.S. Open Second Round Result: James Blake Powers Through

James Blake is not having a particularly sunny summer, but he's following up a knee injury and a crummy first-round exit at Wimbledon with a nice little stateside run at the U.S. Open. In front of a supportive home crowd, he dispatched Canada's Peter Polansky, 6-7, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. Blake will need all the support (and luck) he can get going forward, however: Next up for him is No. 3 Novak Djokovic.
