Olympics R32: Hewitt def. Cilic 6-4, 7-5

The old dog can still bite!

at Cilic for not shaking the umpire's hand. Cilic had 15-30 in the final game Hewitt serving at 6-5. Lleyton hit a ball, called long, Cilic doesn't play it, umpire overrules, Cilic loses his shit

I think it was the right call, in the end.

Olympics R2 L. Hewitt def M. Cilic 6-4 7-5

Lleyton should have broken earlier in the second set, he had 0:40 on 2-2 and 15-40 on 3-3.

P.S. Loved the no handshake with Garner from Marin, followed by WELL DONE , PICKA TI MATERINA

Expected result. Cilic has been awful after Umag.

Hewitt is a naturally better player on grass.

Didn't know Marin refused the ump, oh dear

Tough final game for Lleyton, win meant a lot to him.

This wouldn't be by any chance the same dog from Fed's "weak era" - now broke back, stiff-hipped, wrecked feet, century-old Hewitt taking out the young guns of this "strong era"? The same one?

Marin got robbed. Ball was called out, Marin didn't play it and then umpire calls it in. Umpire robbed Marin 3 times by overruling on crucial points. I never seen Marin this pissed in my life and rightfully so. Why is there no hawks eye on Olympics.

Oh yeah! Yes! That was something else. It's so good to see Lleyton fit, moving so well, hitting the ball so well and so pumped up. I'll never forget this match. What a champ! Hopefully it's a good match with Novak tomorrow, who was scarily good against Roddick!

Marin couldn't play it, he was too far. Yes, there is hawk eye on Olympics.

John Lloyd did say very early in the match that he didn't like the overrules from Jake Garner and that it could cause trouble later in the match. Great prediction from Lloyd!

Was great to see Lleyton save break points towards the end of the second, especially after missing so many himself. Tough to be clutch when you haven't played a lot, as we saw against Stakhovsky but he dug it out today and I couldn't be happier

Yes, he did, it is so extremely rare to see him lose his temper like that.

True, Marin never had a play on that ball. Baffling that there's no hawk eye at the Olympics though!
