(AP) -- Nearly five years later, former tennis star James Blake says he never suspected the large man running toward him was a plainclothes New York City policeman.
Blake was in town that day for the U.S. Open and standing outside a Manhattan hotel.
"I thought someone was running at me that was a fan, someone that was going to say, `Hey I saw you play so and so, I was at this match, my kid plays tennis,'" Blake recalled. "I'm smiling with my hands down."
