Re: 3rd round: Lleyton Hewitt vs Novak Djokovic?

I hope this one is televised. I'd go with Djokovic in 4 sets. He has Lleyton beat off the ground, but needs to be consistent since Hewitt will bring many balls back.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

I am almost certain it will and hopefully on the center court since they put Lleyton there when he played his prior matches

My heart is torn on this one, it doens't help that the winner will be playing Richard most likely.

I'll go with Hewitt, He's playing kinda of well thins Open, and I didnt find djokovic all that impressive today. Hewitt in 4 or 5.

Re: 3rd round: Lleyton Hewitt vs Novak Djokovic?

Hewitt has been playing well, and I think he might win this match, but I'm not sure. I'd definitely give the edge to Hewitt if they both play like they did today.

But I do think that Djokovic has the ability to hit Hewitt off the court, and if he plays well, would probably win... because like people have said, Hewitt is half the player he used to be.
