Re: it's all about the big points...

For the most part Hewitt has been just hitting it back to the centre of the court for Fed to punish.

But you are right also.

Re: it's all about the big points...

That's why he blows 4 breakpoints in the third set and manages to lose it, then?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

i never said he wins every big point, did i?

but if you think hewitt is gonna win the match from 2sets to love down, fair enough. but for me the match was decided in the second set, when he saved the set points.

so yes...he still plays the big points better than anyone else. and i'm not just saying that based on this match. it has been a consistent theme of his success over the last 2 years!

Re: it's all about the big points...

This is why you don't make topics like this before the match is over, I guess. I mean, don't underestimate Federer (he is one of the best at the big points), but don't underestimate his opponents either.

But, of course, Sjengster, remember that he saved six set points in the second set - potentally he could have been two sets to one down, but instead he's two sets to one up, which is certainly a more comfortable situation.



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

a lot like my previous post. and i will make this thread confidently before the match is over, because even if hewitt could come back to win...highly unlikely...it doesn't change the facts!

Re: it's all about the big points...

He needs to stop getting tight and lazy, i basically thought it was over in the third set and LLeyton gave it 100 percent.Sampras would have finished him off.
