Whoever is going to take Hewitt out of the Open has to hit through him. Djokovic better be ready to hit laser beams near the lines.

Delic didn't show much in this match - constantly threatened on his serve while never making a dent in Hewitt's, which as usual wasn't invincible but effective enough on the day. In addition to his usual strong baseline game, the Aussie also went to net fairly often with success - well done to him for an easy solid win

Amer is lovely (and very sweaty). I wish he had put up much better fight in this match, but I wonder if that loss to Young last week got into his head. Meh, he's still in doubles with Justin (sweatiest team ever!).

Anyone who is not taking Hewitt seriously here needs to have the meds adjusted.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

First step taken to a 4th round clash with Nole

Seems like a solid match, and very happy with Lley coming in more at
the net.

| Murray | Tipsarevic | Mahut | Srichaphan | Gulbis|
| Dominika Cibulkova | Alicia Molik | Svetlana Kuznetsova | Tatiana Golovin |

| Rafter | Majoli | Kim Clijsters | Schalken | Enqvist |

Great stats for Hewitt, 31 winners to 14 errors, 95% winning percentage on first serve, and 19 out of 22 at the net. Superb start to his Open!

Tough to draw Hewitt in the first round

Lleyton is looking very good. I can''t wait for a Nole and Hewitt Ro16 if it comes to pass.

Hewitt also seemed very at-ease in the studio interview after the match. He said that he has mellowed off the court in the past year and a half or so- and it really does seem as such.

I like a lot of players.
