Sydney QF: Hewitt vs. Nalbandian - WWW?

this is the first big test for lleyton. sure, tipsarevic is able to play solid tennis from time to time but daveed is the one to beat for lleyton if he wants to show the world that he's sill capable of something great in melbourne.

what do you think? somehow i believe he takes out nalbandian in straight sets but that's mainly because nalbandian is going to play crappy tennis. who knows why.

Re: Sydney QF: Hewitt vs. Nalbandian - WWW?

SO, Nalby starts right from the quarters? Shouldn't he play a match first? Are you sure about this?

Re: Sydney QF: Hewitt vs. Nalbandian - WWW?

Yes, he is right, I checked it and somehow nalby beat Llodra. But if you check in the livescores of the ATP there is no record of it...weird. Ghost match?

I think Hewitt to win, just not sure if it'll be in 2 or 3. Ill go with 3. He makes it hard for himself sometimes :P

Hewitt in three, he always play well in Sydney and I think Nalbandian will be rusty.

Re: Sydney QF: Hewitt vs. Nalbandian - WWW?

i see nalby winning this in 3 sets.

Fail to prepare, Prepare to fail!

Andy Murray -- Rafa Nadal --Lleyton Hewitt -- Marat Safin -- Novak Djokovic --Del Potro

Re: Sydney QF: Hewitt vs. Nalbandian - WWW?

Nalbandian 6/1 6/3 against Llodra is quite great.
Did anyone see the match ?

Re: Sydney QF: Hewitt vs. Nalbandian - WWW?

This has always been an interesting match up. Nalbandian is probably in better form but I doubt he will push himself too much to win this. If it is a tough match I would say Lleyton in 3, but if David is in a good mood he could wrap this one quickly in straights.
