3 hours and Hrbaty could have gone another 3 hours, good entertaining stuff for an exho.

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".

The atmosphere and the players' intensity felt more like Davis Cup stuff than Hopman.

A win is a win. Just trying to get rid of the rust.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Sounds like a good match. To bad Australia will lose the mixed.

I wouldn't say Hewitt was back or anything.

Very happy that Hrbaty looks back !

After beating Blake, nearly beating Hewitt,

it's big improvement comparing to last year when he was talking about retiring !

useless old guy

Solid and entertaining match. There were some great rallies, a lot of emotion from both of 'em so it was fun to watch. Ugh, Casey's let herself and Lleyton down so far though.

Vamos Rafa
