amazing to see Rusty's attitude is the same as what it was when he was 20 y.o.

he genuinely enjoys the game and the competition...way to go legend

I don't know what to say. Lleyton's celebration said it all - Jumping for joy! He's still got it and he's finally looking fit. Don't know how long that will last but days like this make it all worth while

Way to go Lleyton.

and that makes Gigor's stats even better - he's lost to legends and top 10s only this season!!!

Amazing. Well done Lleyton. And this is to all those who couldn't believe he was number 1 for 2 years. A shadow of his former self and defeating in form top 10ers.
This. Haven't lost an once of passion after all these years and one of the best grass court players in recent years. Would love a Fed/Hewitt QF!

No words can describe what a legend he is. And the way he played today, which was terrific, was only a tenth of what he was in 2002, for clueless people who wondered why he spent 80 weeks at #1 and just write 'mug era'

Stan in the second set

Fair play though. Rusty was defending superbly, got so many shots back. Rolling back the years.

Re: Wimbledon R1: Hewitt def. Wawrinka 6-4 7-5 6-3

epic tennis from the legend, saving BPs like a boss, outclassing Stan on the turf, moving around well for his age, volleying like a superstar.. C'mon Rusty!

Which is amazing considering his lack of overall power.

He has a huge tennis IQ and constructed his points impeccably.

Tomic [tom-ic] [tom-ic-ing]
verb
1. apply yourself for a small period of time before giving up. (I am tomicing this match).
noun
2. play exceedingly well for a month and then give fallacious promises to the world. (He performed a Tomic)
