In 2002, James Blake was named the world’s sexiest athlete by People magazine. If he wasn’t already a tennis player, his good looks could have made him a successful model. As it is, Blake has a modeling contract with IMG models, posed in GQ and Teen Vogue, and modeled fashions for DKNY and Kenneth Cole.
Named the comeback player of the year in 2005 after Blake overcame three devastating events to become one of the best tennis players in the world. Blake again defied the odds in 2011. Due to serious knee problems Blake began his 2011 comeback tour ranked out of the Top 150 for the first time since 2005. His ranking plummeted to 175 only to rise to number 63 as of August 2011!

“Fine as Wine in the Summertime!”
