Re: WWW AO R1:Hewitt vs. Stebe

I love this draw for Stebe

It will be only his 2nd GS main draw match (1st one at Wimby last year vs Dimitrov) and he'll play in front of 15,000 people probably in the night session and his opponent is surely not unbeatable

I'm going for the 'upset' and am going to say Stebe in 4 or 5 (but will lose the 1st set probably due to nervousness) as he'll be the fitter player.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Re: WWW AO R1:Hewitt vs. Stebe

I can definitely see an upset in this one, but that very much depends on whether Stebe will bring his A-game to the court.

If he does, I would question whether Hewitt could win a physical battle with him at the moment.

If he doesn't, Hewitt's sheer strength of mind will probably move him clear...and it could be a fairly comfortable win for the veteran imo.

More than likely to be a night match, which might actually favour Stebe a little. Some good performances on clay last year seemed to propel him up the rankings.

Re: WWW AO R1:Hewitt vs. Stebe

Hewitt in 4 sounds about right. I think Stebe is a good shotmaker and can fight pretty good at times, but I think he will be mentally weak in important moments; and to make matters worse, the entire Aussie crowd will be against him.

That said, if Hewitt loses this -- surely he should retire because that would be pathetic. But in all honesty I want Stebe to win.
