Cincy R1: Hewitt def. Lu 6-4 4-0 RET

Weird match and Lu got jobbed by the trainer. He was having problems with the lower back and called for the trainer at 5-3 but the chair ump wanted him to wait until the next changeover. I'm not completely sure if he was denied treatment at the end of the set, but then at 3-0 Hewitt in the second set, Lu wanted an injury timeout but was denied (even though he was promised it) because it was right before Lleyton's serve. Lu called a medical TO at 4-0, while arguing with the physio while he was treating him. Played one point and still couldn't move, and retired

Hewitt looked solid though

Lu got jobbed. Dumbass trainer wouldn't allow him a medical timeout.
at Hewitt staring down Lu and shouting "C'mon!!!!" when Lu could hardly move.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Yea Lu got screwed and was understandably pissed about it, complaining to the umpire several times. Either way, Hewitt looks pretty sharp. Who does he play next?

Re: Cincy R2: Hewitt def. Lu 6-4 4-0 RET

Lu didn't move too well in that second set. His gripe was that the trainer apparently told him after the first set that they'd take an injury time out at the next change over, but when the change over came Hewitt was set to serve next so the trainer said that he was going to wait for another game and Lu found this to be ridiculous as he was in pain and struggling to move.

Lleyton moved so much better out there today. He hit the ball well and seemed pumped up. His serve was also vastly improved. Hopefully the body pulls up well from this match so he can give Soderling a run, though I still reckon Lleyton will be too rusty to win it.

The handshake was interesting too...Lu was trying to explain what happened and Hewitt was just kind of there nodding his head

Hewitt is such an asshole. At 30-15 3-0, after Lu argued a bit with chair after getting screwed, Lu plays a great rally, barely able to move. Hewitt wins, the stare down, and that horrifying COME ONNNNNNNNNNN he does. What a douchebag.

racism rearing it's ugly head in america's heartland........poor lu

adler: "this is so awkward when you're arguing with the guy who's trying to work you through an injury."
koenig: "and he's an aussie."
adler: "wow, that's conflict."

lol.

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,
the game in which you are entertained.
It is the game you will win.

Also awkward to have a blazing row with the guy who's deep-massaging your butt.

I think he was a bit peeved that after stalling his service game midway through to have words with the umpire, Lu didn't bother to raise his hand in aknowledgement before receiving the next serve. It's common courtesy after causing a delay to aknowledge the opponent.
