Roland Garros R1: Kavčič def. Hewitt 7-6(2) 6-3 6-7(4) 6-3

Simply too many errors from Lleyton on the day. Blaz with the ace down break point in the final game was clutch, his serve got him out of several tight games. Lleyton played OK given his lack of matches, this match will have helped him with his rhythm, but just too many mistakes, couldn't hit through nor around Blaz with any consistency.

Blaz kept the error count low, and although he struggled to cross the finish line at the end of the third and fourth sets, he eventually was able to get the win. Big win for Blaz.

RG R1 : Kavčič def. Hewitt 7-6(2) 6-3 6-7(4) 6-3

Hewitt's lack of match practice cost him here big time, he seemed to be moving ok all things considered.

Kavčič defended his 2nd round points. He was good in parts, at times too passive but stepped up the aggression when down a break in the 1st and typically failed to serve out that set.

Good enough in the end, definitely not the best match.

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".

Blaz

Hewitt still played better than Roodduck and he gave a big fight at the end.

So many errors from Lleyton, though there were glimpses of good stuff from him. Good stuff from Kavcic when he needed it.

At least Hewitt is a fighter. Better performance than the one we saw from the Duck.

Worst I've seen Hewitt return in years. Might just be the last time we see him on clay too.

But I like Kavcic so a good win for him.

I'd say Germany will select clay for their DC tie in September. They were meant to make the announcement last Friday but held on for a week, presumably to see how the Australian and German players faired at Roland Garros.

You're right about the returning though. Worst I've ever seen him return, hopefully it's just a matter of getting his eye in with more matches.

good win for Kavcic anyway. Hewitt still needs time to rehab

The fact that Hewitt can take 4 months off the tour and play such a competitive battle with a top 100 player is a good sign, the game is still there.

I'd like to see him play a grass challenger, his health seems to be ok.

Result doesn't matter, all about how Lleyton's body holds up. The game will improve with more training and matchplay. Just happy to see him out there.

Hewitt wasn't so bad, had a couple of chances but you can see that he came from a surgery and had no match practice at all, he made a lot of errors and some simply shots are going wrong today. He need some time to prepare for the grass season with Queens and i think he will be ready at Wimbledon because his fighting spirit is already unbelievable...
Kavcic very solid today from the baseline and very consistent. Good win for him.

He needs to get some matches in, should do well on the grass providing his body holds up.

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".
