Good enough from Roger

Hard to judge given how Hewitt was struggling with movement it didn't feel like a competitive match really.

I don't write Federer off tomorrow at all.

Hewitt used to be an entartaining player many years ago, now he is so boring Federer beat him 4th time "6-3 6-4"

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

How can anyone write off Roger in any match? Ridiculous...

Re: Cincinnati Qtr Final: R. Federer beats L. Hewitt 6-3, 6-4

Fed's 13th consecutive win against Hewitt and Goodall mentioned that it was Fed's 200th win at MS level.

Murray's plan tomorrow: Serve well, serve to Fed's FH, grind Fed down, attack his backhand, attack his backhand, attack his backhand, attack his backhand, attack his backhand. Then when the rally gets long attack his forehand and let Fed explode on that side.

I hope Lleytons knee will be better for USO. He would have probably lose this match even if he was fully fit, but still a good week for him, reaching a seeding position for USO.

Good enough from Fed to defeat Hewitt who seemed to struggling with his knee. Doubt this level of play will be enough for Fed to defeat Murray though

Neither do I. Even if Feds is not quite there yet, his playing was much better today than in his former matches - less shanks and nettings at least.
Of course, very hard to draw any conclusion from this match, as Hewitt was obviously struggling with his knee condition, hence his very poor movement. He was a sitting duck most of the time, really.

As for the match tomorrow, I wouldn't at all mind the 'First Set Against Benneteau-version' of Murray appearing there. In that case, Feds might well have a chance, still. Not counting on that to happen, though.

Congrats, Feds! and get back fully fit for the USO, Hewitt!
