RG R2: Hewitt Struggles Past Istomin 1-6 6-3 6-4 2-6 6-2

great fight from hewitt as always. His bad luck of draws continues as he plays rafa next. At least he defends his points. The stream for this was poor, so i could only watch it in parts

By no means impressive, but he got the win. Now to get spanked by Rafa...

Loves a 5 setter and while Lleyton will be brave, he is going to be so outgunned by Nadal.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Well he defends his points which is good, unfortunately it will be the same old story against Rafa.

Another gritty tough victory from Lleyton, the match against nadal is going to be ridclously one sided but did his job this tournament.

glad that hewitt defended his points from last year.

and as a fan, im pissed with the shitty luck he has had with the last 3 grand slam draws he has been dealt...
(R3 US Open: Federer, R4 Aus Open: Federer, R3 FO: Nadal)

i think nadal beats hewitt 6-3,6-2,6-3...4th time in the last 5 years nadal and hewitt face off at the french open...*sigh*

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

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

baggy/ferrer was also a very tough draw for 3rd round. Esp Baggy who always plays brilliantly in Melbourne and australia in general

Istomin played pretty well today, but Lleyton counter punched well, made Istomin play at a high level which he couldn't do, and stepped it up in the 5th set.

If Lleyton can keep it competitive vs. Rafa tomorrow, he will have done a good job.

5 sets before playing Nadal on clay. Is there a worse possible preparation in sport?
