a great day for tennis Wawrinka shouldn't be advancing far on grass with his forehand.

Hewitt has a good chance to reach the quarters here. He is a class above everyone left in this 1/8 on grass. Wheather or not his body will hold up is his biggest issue.

Hewitt used to come across as a bit of a knob. He's rather endearing now. Would be great to see him role back the years and make the second week.

Happy to have been wrong about this. I thought Wawrinka would pose more of a threat, and that Hewitt's body would eventually lose out. Well done to the man. He's seriously showing this current generation how to play on grass, and it's quite enjoyable to watch.

this was pretty darn impressive from the bionic man. Stan wasn't bad at all but really couldn't hit through Hewitt on a consistent basis. Very, very well done by the aussie

Wow what a crazy day today was. I was hoping Hewitt could win this just because I love to see the old guys make runs past their primes but I never would have expected him to take it in straights. I used to really dislike Hewitt too ... funny how that goes.

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

HEWITT!!! I'm so happy that Rusty got this result and while I didn't watch the match, I heard many good things regarding his play that he's rolling back the years with his determination and passion on the grass court. It was also surprising given my prediction that I had the exact same scoreline if Wawrinka was playing well, but boy I was glad the opposite happen!

I could not be happier that Hewitt is playing at this level again while injury-free and I'm very excited the things to come for Hewitt if he sustains this level. He has a great opportunity to make a run to the Quarters against Fed.

Overall, I'm so glad to see Hewitt back in form again through taking out top players and also overcoming bad luck R1 draws. Hope to see you achieve higher.
