Blake Nets Ivy Triple Crown


Sophomore sensation James Blake--who has held the nation's No. 1 ranking since November--earned the coveted Ivy League Triple Crown Wednesday, winning Player of the Year honors, as well as First-Team singles and First-Team doubles.

Blake was 6-0 in singles action, winning all 12 sets he played, while he and partner Kunj Majmudar, No. 3 in the nation, were 4-0 in doubles.

Junior John Doran (6-1) joined Blake on the singles first team, while the doubles combination of junior Joe Green and sophomore Scott Clark (7-0) made the doubles first team along with Blake and Majmudar.

The No. 19 Crimson (21-5, 7-0 Ivy) was eliminated last weekend in the second round of the NCAA tournament 4-1 by No. 10 Baylor, but both Blake and Majmudar will compete in the individual tournament May 26-30 in Athens, Ga. --Daniel G. Habib
