2010 U.S. Open First Round Result: James Blake Hustles Past Kristof Vliegen

It's been a rough year for James Blake, with frequent early-round losses and a knee injury that kept him out of the French Open and hampered him at Wimbledon. He's experiencing a very late bounce back, however, first advancing to the quarterfinals in the Farmers Classic, and today blowing through his first-round U.S. Open opponent, Belgium's Kristof Vliegen, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. Blake and his headband advance to face Peter Polansky of Canada.
