Stunning win by Hewitt

I only just got home in time to watch the final set of the Masters Final against Ferrero, but what a sensational finish to the tournament. Hewitt has proven beyond doubt he is the #1 in the world this week. Congratulations Lleyton.

Also, the tournament produced brilliant and exciting tennis all week and the crowd was electrifying in their support of all the players. If anyone thinks mens tennis is boring, then they obviously weren't watching these championships. Simply fantastic.

SO is this where I post the "Stunning choke" thread?

COngratulations once again, for beating an opponent who is much better than you, who choked the match away.

Enjoy while they still haven't developed balls, as they will eventually.

Just ask Jim Courier.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

It amazes me that Lleyton can have accomplished so much and still have people yammering on about how he's not talented and is just benefitting from everyone else choking.

Sour grapes.

I don't think that I have said he wasn't talented.

I wish people would quit putting words in my mouth, it's extremely annoying.

Saying that other people are more talented, doesn't mean that person A isn't.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

You are a bad loser, Rebecca. I surely would not have reacted your way if JC would have won.
Very shallow reaction of yours.

Well in all fairness, I don't think people are reading what I write correctly. I'm still waiting for where I called Hewitt "talentless" as I have been accused of two or three times now. If people are going to accuse me of something, they could at least spot WHERE I said it.

I'm pretty sure I pointed out that his mental strength won him the match, and it did.

I have already appologized for last night.

Anyhow, I'm not going to lose sleep over wether or not a faceless name thinks of me as shallow

Hewitt Goes Back-to-Back

By Bill Scott
Lleyton Hewitt concluded another ATP dream season in awesome style Sunday, defeating Spain's Juan Carlos Ferrero 7-5, 7-5, 2-6, 2-6, 6-4 to lift his second straight title at the $3.75 million Tennis Masters Cup.

The victory added more luster to the 21-year-old standout's career as he finished No. 1 again after doing it a year ago in Sydney. But it was not without drama, as Ferrero mounted a mid-match charge which threatened to spoil the tiring Hewitt's afternoon.

After two breaks apiece in the final set, Hewitt scratched into winning position as he held with a ace for 5-4. A game later, he ended the tense showdown in Shanghai with a winning topspin lob which Ferrero could not touch.

Hewitt ends the year with five titles, his second straight top ranking and total prize money of $3.7 million, which includes $1.4 for his performance in China's largest city.

A capacity crowd of nearly 10,000 watched the world-beater end his week in emphatic style.

His prize packet also includes a fully-equipped Mercedes CLK320 to be delivered to his home in Adelaide. Hewitt will perhaps have to add an extra space in the garage of the home he is building on the city's waterfront for his newest set of wheels.

Ferrero's defeat leaves Alex Corretja (Hanover, 1998) and Manuel Orantes (Houston, 1976) as the only Spaniards to win the season-ending championship. Ferrero moved to fourth place in the ATP Champions Race by reaching the final and will become the first Spaniard since Sergi Bruguera (1993-94) to finish in the Top 5 in consecutive seasons.

Hewitt began the campaign to close out his 61st win of the season as he showed his resilience after dropping serve in the seventh game of the opening set to trail 3-4.

He quickly got the break back to square it at 5-all. Ferrero then began to fade in the face of the Australian's attack, losing the set as Hewitt profited from a return long off the Spaniard's racket.

The Australian quickly seized the swinging momentum, staking a claim on the second set with a break in the second game. That raised the challenge for Ferrero, who broke back in a fifth game filled with spectacular rallies and duels from the baseline.

Showing the power that has characterized his game all week at the year-end event, Hewitt grabbed a two-sets margin as he pounced on a Ferrero double-fault which produced two set points for the Australian.

The first was saved, but Hewitt snapped up the second with a winner.

It was all Ferrero in the third and fourth sets as the accumulation of a long season perhaps began to show in Hewitt's legs. By early in the fifth set, the Australian had notched 60 unforced errors.

But he soldiered on into a make-or-break fifth set, littered with breaks in the first three games. The Australian got it back on court with a break-back for 3-all after a volley duel.

Hewitt then marched to victory and immediately announced the good news to girlfriend and WTA Championships winner Kim Clijsters in Belgium in an on-court mobile phone conversation as the pair celebrated a trophy double at year-end events.

"Ah yeah. Remember the days when you used to go out to the barn lift up your shirt and bend over?"
