Biography

Popular American James Blake began playing tennis at the age of five, but was diagnosed, at 13, with severe scoliosis (curvature of spine) and wore a back brace for 18 hours a day. Blake's story into professional tennis is remarkable and he has helped to raise millions of dollars for good causes and charitable foundations off the court. Having risen to number four in the world in 2006 and progressed to the latter stages of Grand Slam competitions in Australia and his home nation, Blake has struggled with injury in recent years. He is currently ranked just inside the world's top 100 and his physical trainer is Rory Cordial.

20:24...But boy, it was a barrow-load of fun. I hope you enjoyed it even half as much as we did. Thank you for all your messages throughout, you've been the glue holding us together as the edges frayed amid the madness. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for us Brits to raise a toast to Andy Murray and Fred Perry. British sporting legends both.
