RG R3: Ferrer def. Hewitt 6-2, 3-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4

to both.

I was assuming it was little bit easier for Ferrer but Hewitt was (on clay) just exellent.

Two players killing themselves to have a chance to be in the same court of Stepanek!

Dammit Lleyton!!! He had 40-15 in the game he was broken in the fifth. Great performance though. He did better than could've been expected.

Congrats Ferrer!!!

Ferrer didn't play well at all.

This match is a perfect example of the difference between Hewitt now and Hewitt circa 2000. There was no fire in his eyes. No fist pumps. No emotion. He was totally flat out there.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

Too bad I couldn't watch this one. At least it seemed to have been a nice battle.

Well done Pics and to Lleyton for at least making a proper run at RG this year.

Great performance Lleyton but I'm still royally pissed....4-4 40-15 and gives it up

Hope the hip feels a bit better and that he can start getting more matches under the belt

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

Unbelievable match. Such a shame that one of them had to lose.

Good match and I think Corretja will be happy with this result.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
