Cincinnati R1: L. Hewitt beats R. Soderling 3-6, 7-6(8), 6-4

Soderling nearly made a successful return to action after his injury, but once Hewitt captured the second set tie break there was only likely to be 1 winner.

Unlucky Robin, he hasn't been hitting without pain for long, so this isn't much of a surprise.

Soderling's demons strike back Ok, first match point Hewitt saved with an ace, but 2nd mp was a choke job by Soderling, from comfortable position in which he wins many points, hit a forehand 2 meters out BTW, last year lost in Cincy also after wasting two mp's (against Kohli then).

Solid and impressive business on serve from Robin all throghout the match, save for that one game in the third which he lost in sloppy fashion. The mishits and loose shots cost him. Good win for Lleyton, and a very nice tiebreak, even though Robin should have put the match to bed on his 2nd matchpoint.

Re: Cincinnati R1: L. Hewitt beats R. Soderling 3-6, 7-6(8), 6-4

This is ladies and gents how you let a better at the moment, younger and way more powerful opponent beat himself. Hewitt early in the second set discovered that the Soderling FH is completely offline today so he kept feeding him on that side, and Robin just got more and more frustrated. Apart from very good serve placement (as always) Hewitt game was nothing special, he found a weakness and exploited that to max.
