Re: Roger wins Indian Wells : def Lleyton 6-2, 6-4, 6-4

Congrats Roger!



INDIAN WELLS, California (Reuters) - World number one Roger Federer produced another display to crush number two Lleyton Hewitt (news) 6-2, 6-4, 6-4, in the final of the Pacific Life Open on Sunday.


In a coolly efficient and often spectacular dismantling of the Australian, Federer never allowed Hewitt into the contest, controlling his opponent from both the backcourt and at the net.


"My game has a lot to do with footwork," Federer said. "When I'm moving well, I play well. This week I've played and felt fantastic."


In attempting to upset the number one, the usually steady Hewitt took risks but the strategy backfired.


He registered 31 unforced errors, the same as Federer, but the Swiss nailed 41 winners to only 18 from the Australian.


The Australian felt he struck the ball well, but couldn't put together proper game plan.


"Roger's a tough guy," he said. "I probably went for a little more than I needed to. But against a guy like Roger, his movement is superior.


"He makes you go for that little bit extra every time because he really does cut off the angles extremely well. It's a tough decision to make, how much to go for it and how much to pull back."


Federer did not drop a set during the tournament and leaves the event with a 26-1 match record in 2005. It was his 17th straight win in a final, a tour record.


"All the finals in a row, that's fantastic," Federer said. "I didn't have a great record in the beginning of my career in finals. I lost more than winning them.


I was very disappointed to have a bad one in the beginning of my pro career. Somehow I turned it around."


The 23-year-old Swiss has won four titles this year and now beaten Hewitt seven consecutive times, dropping only two of 20 sets.

Pretty predictable, Fed is just Lleyton has absolutely NO weapons against roger, and as much as I love him, I can't see how he will ever beat him again. It's just a horrible match up for him. Roger barely gets out of second gear in most of their matches.

Great tourney Lleyt

Congrats Federer, he played really well. Lleyton needs to play a flawless game to beat Federer and that dosen't happend much. I just saw the aftermatch interview with Fed, how can anyone not like this guy. He's an all around good guy. Even when the commentators suggested he was getting bored out there, Roger was quick to give Hewitt props saying how Hewitt upped his game. He's a very likable guy.

Great job,Roger

He even tried to make it a bit more interessting in the end - not that I cared for that!

Well done Lleyton - a final after a though semi isn´t the easiest thing to handle - esspecialy if your personal nightmare is on the other side of the net.

Re: Roger wins Indian Wells : def Lleyton 6-2, 6-4, 6-4

Ok no doubt about it, Federer was just far too good again today and simply outclassed Hewitt in every department.

BUT................

I think its getting really bad for tennis, when the world no.2 who happens to be the ultimate competitor is walking onto a court which is his favourite surface, at one of his favourite venues and doesn't believe he has a hope in hell of winning the match. I never thought I'd say this but right from the 1st point you could tell from Hewitt's body language that he didn't truly believe he could win the match. I just can't see how anyone can beat Federer at the moment, it still surprises me that Safin did not so long ago. I just hope some of the other guys can catch up soon, because no matter how good Federer is, it's not a good thing for mens tennis if he becomes as dominant as he's threatening to.
