Nadal def. Hewitt: 6-2, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, but it wasn't easy

Edited: Match lived up to my expectations.

Re: his potential opponents in the QF

Nadal is 2-0 vs. Monfils

He's never played Djokovic.

Hewitt should be able to take a set.

Re: Nadal vs. Hewitt: Does Lleyton have a chance?

Hewitt will take him out in a 5 setter. Bear in mind Hewitt is serving bombs lately, and his forehand is smokin`

Re: Nadal vs. Hewitt: Does Lleyton have a chance?

Hmmm....of course Nadal is a better clay-courter, but if someone can win a battle of " i'll stay out as long as it takes too win this match"-attitude against Nadal, it is Hewitt.

Remember Hewitt was the king of Nadal's defense all the time game, before Nadal took over. Could be a good match. If Matthieu can make Nadal work for almost 5-hours, I shrudder to what Lleyton can do.

Re: Nadal vs. Hewitt: Does Lleyton have a chance?

I remember watching a match between those two at AO a few years ago. And Nadal gave him a very hard time. Keeping in mind that Hewitt isn't the player he was then, that he was at home with the support on the crowd, and above all that Nadal wasn't half the player he is now, I'm altogether not very optimistic about Lleyton's chances tomorrow...

But after all, if there's one single player out there who can overcome Nadal on his own turf (fist pumping and intimidation), it has to be Hewitt...and Lleyton has an amazing record against spanish players (I guess he likes to counter top-spin), so...who knows?

For the first time of my life, I'll be cheering for Hewitt...COME ON LLEYTON, YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Re: Nadal vs. Hewitt: Does Lleyton have a chance?

That's why I think Lleyton is in there. It'd be a battle of mirror-images. Nadal ain't gonna blow Lleyton off the court, he ain't gonna out-intense Lleyton. Nadal is the fav, no doubt. But this could much harder than people are thinking.

Yeah, me too.

Still I doubt whether Lleyton can get more than 10 games on the board.
