Dent def Norman 7-6 7-6 4-6 6-7 6-1 Winners Galore

Up until the start of the final set Taylor had only had 2bp opportunities and had failed on both

On the winners/ue ratio, things looked pretty high quality

Only 1 break of serve in the match going into that final set aswell

Match went just under 3hrs, stats were

Aces: Dent 23 Norman 25
Winners (incl service): Dent 67 Norman 81
Unforced Errors: Dent 22 Norman 25

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

...better to reign in hell than serve in heaven...

Some good S/V play in that one as the serves got a bit weaker towards the end. Good play by Dent near the end. I thought he looked a bit more in shape than usual today. He actually has decent shot at the 4th round given his draw but whith him you never know.

Too bad Norman draw someone with a good play on grass in the first round.
Being a veteran, he's playing some of his best tennis these days and I wish he could have gone a bit further here.

Safin: His Royal Dork-ness
Hewitt: Mowing a lawn near you
Kuerten: tennis in the shape of a heart

It might have been high quality and many winners, but this matchup isn't exactly my 'cup of tea'.

Taylor just looks awful when he's serving, he is cute otherwise.
