01:52 PM ET 08.29 | James Blake suffered a heart-breaking loss to Ivo Karlovic on Wednesday at the U.S. Open to bring an end to his 14-year career. Earlier this week, Blake announced that the U.S. Open would be the final singles tournament of his career, but he could have never imagined that it would end like it did. Blake was up two sets in the first-round match up with Karlovic, but he ended up dropping the fifth-set tiebreaker in the entertaining match that lasted nearly three-and-a-half hours to bring an end to his career -- 6-7 (2), 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (2). While Blake will never get to take the court as an individual again, he still gets to finish out the U.S. Open in the doubles bracket with Jack Sock.
