Oh So Close

James Blake and Jelena Jankovic both got into a US Open Series final on Sunday by fighting through their own respective difficult draws.

Blake and Jankovic fell to a combined 0-14 against foes Federer and Henin.

For both Blake and Jankovic, their feats of getting there are well-respected and should be celebrated on their own, but the frustration of not being able to solve such head-to-head riddles must be getting to both of them.

Are they capable of coming through at the right time? The last time I checked, the US Open starts in eight days. As good of time any, right?
