James Blake

Former Professional Tennis Player and New York Times Best Seller

James Blake inspired the world during an epic tennis career that featured 10 singles titles, a Davis Cup Championship, and a New York Times Best Seller for his memoir, Breaking Back. James turned pro in 1999 while he was the #1 collegiate player at Harvard University. In 2004, James overcame a potential career ending injury and a case of the shingles that temporarily left his face paralyzed and blurred his vision. Just one year later, James climbed from outside of the top 200 in the ATP rankings to his career highest ranking of #4. In memory of his father who lost a battle to stomach cancer in 2004, James created the Thomas Blake Sr. Memorial Cancer Research Fund at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He holds an annual celebrity tennis and entertainment event, Serving for a Cure, to raise funds for cancer research and prevention. After an amazing 14 year career, James retired from professional tennis at the 2013 US Open. James lives in California with his wife Emily and daughters Riley and Emma.
