Re: 2010 Clay Season

Awesome! Good to see Jim finally got a win over Monaco after last year's two tough encounters. Surely this will give him more confidence for RG.

Re: 2010 Clay Season

Playing Hewitt right now on Chatrier. His first time playing on it right?

Re: 2010 Clay Season

I started watching at the very end of the 1st set, so I'm yet to see him win a game.
Was he good until 5-5, Chiaki?

You didn't miss much, he lost the first set with two double faults, if I'm not mistaken.

I'm still waiting for him to win a game.

Back from 15-40 to 40-40, this time maybe...

He finally holds, after having saved at least 4-5 BP again.

Re: 2010 Clay Season

I'm glad you got to see him at least held once. Broken again, he's spraying errors left right and center. Well, gf not looking too stressed though.

I don't know why I thought he has good chance in this match before it started, maybe I thought Hewitt's been shaky lately and was sick last week, I forgot Jeremy isn't Mr. In-form either.

He was holing very easily, got a lot of 1st serves and hit a lot of winners. He got to deuce at *3-2 and thought he might break. But if I had to choose one that I would have picked to win until 5-5, Jeremy looked more likely. I missed it after 5-5, but I imagine it was a case of him doing badly. The commentators said he hit 2 DFs in the game at *5-5 and played terrible in Hewitts service game.

Re: 2010 Clay Season

Finally some good tennis!
Lleyton is tough to beat in best of 5, but I guess Jim would be fitter, if he can take him to a 5th set.

Great rebreak.

Re: 2010 Clay Season

Thats a big pity. If he had held that game after breaking then the match would have been suspended, there would have been no time for Hewitt to finish.

Re: 2010 Clay Season

Pretty disappointing after the Monaco win. It keeps hard to put him on any form and he struggles being consistent...

Re: 2010 Clay Season

That was a pretty lifeless performance from Jeremy He started leaking errors from 5-5 in the first set and it went steadily downhill from then on, except from a slight revival in the third set.

Tsonga - Mayer - Lacko - Rosol - Youzhny - Melzer - Petzschner
