WWW Halle Final Federer vs Hewitt?

A nice match in a final just like in the old days. The defending Wimby champion against a former Wimby champion who's been struggling with several injuries in the last years. As many know, the story between these 2 goes way back to their junior days with Hewitt owning Federer most of the time but then things started to change over the years... Tomorrow obviously LLeyton will be going as the big underdog but he's playing well and knows he can beat Federer given that he did it many times back in the day.

I hope it's a great match.


Hewitt vs Federer on grass:

2001 - s-Hertogenbosch SF Hewitt over Federer 6-4, 6-2
2004 - Wimbledon QF Federer over Hewitt 6-1, 6-7(1), 6-0, 6-4
2005 - Wimbledon SF Federer over Hewitt 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(4)
2008 Wimbledon R4 Federer over Hewitt 7-6(7), 6-2, 6-4

Re: WWW Halle Final Federer vs Hewitt?

True, but it's only really before 2003 that Hewitt dominated Federer. From AO 2004, Federer has won 15 straight matches against Hewitt. But I guess that doesn't matter - he had won 12 straight matches gainst Soderling before losing at this year's FO and he also won 12 straight matches against Davydenko before losing to him at last year's WTF. If Federer plays the way he did against Petzschner today then I fancy Hewitt taking a set at least.

Re: WWW Halle Final Federer vs Hewitt?

Ideally, Roger in three, with at least one tight set, probably the one Hewitt will win.

But realistically, Roger in straights.

Bad analogy. Davy was in the best form of his carrer in London and Doha beating Roger& Nadal in back-to-back torurnaments plus Soderling and Del Po.
Soderling played 100% better than he has ever did against Roger to win in 4 sets.
I'm positive Hewitt isn't going to play the best match of his life to beat ROger tomorrow.

Re: WWW Halle Final Federer vs Hewitt?

I had previously never seen Petzschner play but he was just going for his shots and making it most of the times today. Hewitt doesn't have such a fire power to trouble Federer. I think Federer can handle Hewitt's game quite well. Should be straight sets tomorrow.

Re: WWW Halle Final Federer vs Hewitt?

True, it wasn't the best analogy but I guess the point I was trying to make is that although unbeaten streaks against a certain player is a good indication of what might come, it makes the outcome of a future match by no means a foregone conclusion. Needless to say that Hewitt is going to have to play a great match to win in the final tomorrow but it would be foolish to count him out completely.

Re: WWW Halle Final Federer vs Hewitt?

It will be nice if Hewitt wins but Roger will probably win his 6th title in Halle. In 3 sets
