AO R2: L. Hewitt def. D. Young 7-6(3) 6-4 6-1

Scrappy win by Lleyton, but he got it done, and in straight sets. He was up a double break in the first set but let Don back into it. Credit to Young, he played well in patches but mentally he isn't strong.

yeh the first 2 sets were kind of scrappy from Rusty, but he blitzed through the 3rd set, he should have plenty left in the tank for the rest of the tournament.

CANT wait for Rusty vs Baggy , rematch of their epic 2008 encounter, but i doubt it will finish at 4.34am this time though

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

Young should have won the first set....Hewitt was serving like 30% first serves. Some beautiful flashes of talent from Don....and some extremely awful play to go along with it. I suppose it's time to say "typical Don" at this point....he hasn't improved at all in 3 years.

He needs a coach sooooooo badly.

Hewitt was not good....but I fully expect him to go 5 sets with Baghdatis because they both seem to love doing that.

Young has got no shots to beat decent players. He can only rely on opponent's mistakes at most of the time. Have to give some credit to him for the 2nd half of 1st set and 1st half of the second. Did not like that he almost gave up fighting after being broken back in 2nd

Mardy Fish!

Pis Poor effort in the third from Young. He has no fight. When Hewitt was 20 he was the greatest fighter in the history of the game. Donald Young = Child. Go home you overated boy. This is a mans game.

I knew it'd be a tough first set but never doubted Lleyton would win

He has shots, he just makes to many unforced errors, 26-40 in the match I believe, take away the UE and Young wouldve had 1 more point won.

Hewitt was awful. I hope Baggy has gas left in his tank.

His forehand can definitely be a weapon....and he is not bad at net either. But he sprays UE's everywhere from both wings and cannot hit a backhand pass to save his life. He should be a much more polished player now than he was a few years ago...but he isn't.

He needs Brad Gilbert to teach him how to win ugly....or to win at all.

Hewitt will need to seriously lift his game to take down an in form Baggy.

You mean 6 years. He's the same player now as he was then. He turned professional to all kinds of press in 2004 and every year since then it's been people acting like it's his first season and he's somehow just going to start turning into a good player. Not going to happen. It's not because he was pushed too early, it's because he was overrated.
