James Blake notched his 350th career victory in a late-night encounter at the BB&T Atlanta Open Tuesday evening, upsetting sixth-seeded countryman Ryan Harrison 1-6, 6-3, 7-5.

Blake lost in his first six opportunities to attain the milestone this season and looked to be headed down the same road in the first set, dropping serve three times to Harrison, 12 years his junior. But the World No. 110 settled into the match, and converted a late break in the third set to improve to a 2-0 mark against the 2011 Atlanta semi-finalist.

The win is Blake's first as a father, having welcomed daughter Riley Elizabeth with fiancee Emily in June.
