Blackman spent much of his childhood in Barbados, where his father Courtney Blackman served as Governor of the Central Bank and he attended the Harrison College School. In 1983 he returned to the United States and attended the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy.
Blackman beat future Grand Slam winners Michael Chang and Petr Korda en route to the semi-finals of the 1986 US Open Juniors and was also a semi-finalist at the same event a year later, with MaliVai Washington in the doubles. The biggest junior title that he won was the 1986 USTA National Championships (16s), in both the singles and doubles, partnering Chang. He was also a member of two NCAA Division I Championship winning teams while at Stanford.
In 1994 he played in his two further Grand Slams, at the French Open and US Open. At Roland Garros he was unable to better his previous effort and again exited in the opening round, this time to countryman Bryan Shelton in four sets. At his home event he only entered the main draw of the doubles, with Ivan Baron. The pair lost their only match to Canadians Daniel Nestor and Greg Rusedski. Also in 1994, Blackman and partner Renzo Furlan reached the semi-finals of the Romanian Open.
