So far, so good for James Blake in his first Tour-level event since the U.S. Open. The American defeated Olivier Rochus 7-6 (6), 6-3 in the first round of the Stockholm Open and plays second-seeded Juan Martin del Potro next.

Meanwhile, Mardy Fish is in the States trying to ensure that Blake's prize money will go directly toward his cell phone bill.
