Re: ¿Nadal Chances? and photos

Both Hewitt and Nadal could struggle in their next matches... Nadal lost to Ascione just a couple weeks ago, and my liking of Kucera allows me to believe he can give Hewitt a bit of a match.

If this match occurs, I'm sure that Hewitt would win, causing me to revolt and throw things at my TV. Oh, wait. I wouldn't be on my TV. Saves clean up, at least.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I voted yes out of blind faith. In truth I have hardly seen the kid play. I'm very much looking forward to it though! (and if ESPN doesn't show some of it I will be hurling things at the TV too, Rebecca).

I'm sure that they'll work some of it in between the bagels that Venus is dishing out, recaps of what Andre and Andy are doing on the practice court, and Brad listening to himself talk.

I lack direction.

Re: ¿Nadal Chances? and photos

I've seen enough of him to know that he could definitely beat Lleyton if he stays aggressive... but I think that Lleyton is going to go far in this event.

Don't worry, it will be Leo throwing things at the tv.

Nadal certainly has "it", should be a star within a few years if he avoids injury.

Has he actually played a big match though? he may be overwhelmed especially in the first set.

damn, mrp, spell nalbi's name right, pleeeeeeeeeeease. It's worse than Dah-veed. It's like fingernails scraping a chalkboard.....

And, Wy, I think that Nadal has a chance. He may just go for broke, like Kucera did. Too bad Kucera couldn't keep it going.

Nadal can certainly beat him!!! But even if Lleyton gets by Nadal, Roger will be waiting to slaughter him in the next round

I think Nadal will lose, but if he plays a great match he could be a huge surprise...

haha agreed. Niether one of those guys have the firepower to beat Fed. So it's pointless who wins this match...it's like who gets to win so they can be the loser...

uh, yes, clearly hewitt lacks the firepower to beat Fed.

Erm, anyways..

I'd say that his biggest matches so far have been Paradorn in the third round of Wimbledon, and Hrbaty in the finals of Auckland. He played Moya in the semifinals somewhere too. Anyways, he lost all three of those, but I wouldn't read too much into that.

This Hewitt match is one that he's been looking forward to since the draw came out. There is an article on his fan site where he stated that he wanted Hewitt on Rod Laver.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
