15 Burning Questions with James Blake

James Blake was very "good-hearted" (see below) and did our 15 Burning Questions even after a tough loss to Adrian Mannarino in Newport.  He is indeed very sweet and we laughed a lot through our interview.  Enjoy!

If you could switch places with anyone and live their life for one day, who would it be and why? 
Michael Jordan, because he is one of my favorite athletes.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Pretty much any Travis Matthew Golf Shirt.

If you could sit down and have a conversation with 3 people who would they be?
My dad, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln.

What is something you do when no one else is watching?
Listen to Kelly Clarkson, it’s my biggest guilty pleasure [laughter].

If you weren’t a tennis player you would be?
Something possibly on Wall Street, something with numbers and finance is my guess.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Laid back, competitive & hard working.

If you had a time machine and could go back and change one thing, what would it be?
My dad getting tested for cancer earlier.

What is the first thing you grab from your refrigerator in the morning?
Now? Milk for my daughter.

What is your favorite song on you iPod right now?
Probably Notorious BIG, “Juicy”.

What is your favorite TV show?
Modern Family.

What do you think is your worst quality?
Being stubborn.

What do you think is your best quality?
Good hearted.

What is your favorite quote? 
Let’s see if I get it right, I know the general idea but am going to screw it up…something like “Never let the demons of the past…shoot…it basically boils down to always live in the moment. I’m sure I’ll remember the actual quote on the drive home…[laughter].

If you were stranded on an island and could take one other player and then only 1 thing (the idea is that you are trying to get off the island) which player and what thing? 
James: “ Trying to get off the Island? 

OTGT – Yes, so you would need someone helpful. 

James - “That rules out Isner [laughter]. Let’s see, who would be helpful…..I would say, probably Roger. He seems pretty resourceful. And we’d bring his phone and credit cards. That would find a way to get us off!
