So much credit to Robin for this. That final game was a choke from Hewitt with the forehand errors, but Robin was down a break in the fifth, Hewitt had openings in all of the sets to take the match, but Robin held on, stayed mentally solid, and served big when behind. He earned this win, and this result should give him the belief to start to raise his game play.
As for Lleyton, he's proven he can play at this level, but the mental demons and lack of confidence and match fitness have cost him here like it did at the AO v Nalbandian. Hopefully he can stay healthy, he's still capable of threatening the best.
Hewitt played so well. Soderling did fight, but played pretty badly overall.. the wins what counts so grats.
I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

Hewitt was once a mental giant, now a mental midget. Three times serving to stay in the set, 3 sets dropped. Only 1 break point saved if I recall correctly. Up a break in the fifth. Nearly broke my ******* tv!
