World Team Cup: Almagro (Esp) def Hewitt (Aus) 6-1 6-3

Horrifying to watch if you're a Hewitt fan, great stuff for followers of Nico. Lleyton did not look good out there, holding his hip and trying to flex it. He was blown off the court by Almagro and didn't look fit enough to be out there. He tried to defend in the first set but couldn't cope with Almagro's power. He tried to be more aggressive in the second but was patchy. Some very nice stuff at the net towards the end, but poor from the baseline.

I'm hoping he was sluggish because of the virus, but if his hip is bothering him again you'd have to wonder how long he'll keep this up. There's cause to worry if he can play past 30, and he's 29 now.

As for Almagro, he was hitting that ball beautifully and hit some lovely backhand winners. He could do some big damage at the French.

Dead rubber/tie right?

Seems a bit daft for Hewitt to play if he's been unwell lately.

Yeah its a dead tie. Hewitt wanted more practice ahead of the French.. though I don't see how that would have benefitted him at all today.

Shame if Lleyton's hip is bothering him again. I would love for him to have another good run at a slam.

ouch, not good for lleyton.

but since he is seeded 28 for the french open, with a good draw, hopefully he can somehow get to the 2nd week, but only if he manages to avoid being drawn against federer or nadal in the 3rd round
