Very difficult first round for David. Crowd will cheer up for Hewitt, hope David can hold his nerves

Re: Australian Open 2011, 17-30 January 2011, Melbourne, Australia

Nalby needs to start the match very very very quickly - I am worried he won't have the stamina to come back if he trails by 2 sets to 0 or 2 sets to 0.

If he wins the first 2 sets quickly, then I assume it is difficult for Hewitt to come back.

I hate to see Nalby to lose early in a GS again! And his match against Ferrer makes everyone worried...

some David's losses of the end of 2010 such as to Verdasco, and this last one vs Ferrer are very very painfull...
they show that best years of Dave are in the past... yes, if he can lose so easy to middle class players...

he needs some "fresh blod", some "stimulus"...
may be a good win vs his "long time friend" Hewitt will help?

Hewitt won the first, Nalby up a bit in second, still needs improve.

Proud to be David's fan....what an epic match. Congrats El Rey you're the best.

Our great David!

You did it: beat Hewitt in his "home" !!!
Loosing 1-2, you could come back and win 3-2!!!
