Lleyton survives Malisse 6-7(3) 7-5 7-5



That was brutal

By all accounts Lleyton was all over the shop, and in that 3rd set Malisse was serving up a storm, but stuffed it in the crucial game

Glad this was still his first singles match back after 3 months, otherwise I'd be fairly worried....3/12 bp's

Hopefully he'll pick things up quickly at Queens

Up next will probably be Mirnyi yikes

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

Well done Lleyton for believing in this chance and of course he also has to thank Malisse that he let him back into this match. Then again, such matches are nothing special for Malisse, it happens to him quite often.

Good to see that Lleyton got his first win after this 3 months injury break.

A HUGE FIST PUMP and big CMON for Lleyton!!!

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

CMON Potato!
Gosh, Hewitt vs Malisse must be a funny match-up. It's understandable if he lost, but I'm glad he didn't I actually want him to do very well there. Good luck!

Shouldn't take him too long to find form. I love when he lobs on grass, it's a work of art.

I must admit, I was really worried there for a while. Still, well done Lleyton! I'm so relieved he won!

Welcome back, mate.
Both Hewitt and Federer back from the verge of falling in the first round....
So much for deciding the Wimbledon between them.

I wish I could see some highlights of his matches at the AO this year. He didn't win it, but some of those matches were like roller coasters of emotions for his fans. What was it Blake, then Nadal, then Nalbandian, then Andy. He's entertainment.

If nothing else, he'll always have his fighting spirit.

does look smaller than he was over the summer, but maybe thats just because he's not in the Muscle shirt anymore

What a way to win his first comeback match! Great stuff, Lleyton! You kept your self-confidence during the rough patches, and that's no doubt what got you through to the win.



C'mon, Lleyton!

HA! LLEYTON HEWITT IS BACK!!! Every true tennis fan should be happy with that.

Max didn't play that well today either but Lleyton will struggle to beat him if he plays like that...he was too hot and cold. However, i guess he does like a target.
