Seppi defeats Hewitt 4-6 7-5 7-5

Hewitt served for the match twice at 5-3 in the 2nd set, and then again at 5-3 in the 3rd set where had 2 match points.

Lovely choke by a lovely player.

Good luck at the AO LLEYTON, you'll need it!



First Kohlschreiber, now Seppi - I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR LLEYTON'S EXCUSE FOR LOSING THIS ONE.

Was he still sick or something?

I hope Lleyton is able to play anywhere close to 100% in Australia.

The illness seems serious.

Lleyton was 100%.

It could have been a 6-4 6-3 win to Lleyton it if weren't for Seppi's fighting spirit.

Nope.

It could have been 6-4 6-3, would you be asking the same question then?

Lleyton was outplayed, and choked on the big points.

But physically, he was fine.

Have you been paying attention?

Lleyton is not 100% right now, plus he lacks match play.

Funny, though, when he crushed Melzer yesterday no one mentioned he was still sick, but today he loses and he's suddenly sick again?

He was still sick, Melzer just couldn't play the hometown boy.

Hence why the second set was much closer than the first, Melzer started off horribly and when he started to play better, it was too late.

another heavily partisan Aussie, I didn't expect any better...

heard of a little something called "objectivity"?
