2005 Australian Open: Nadal Vs. Hewitt???

Does anyone know where I can watch highlights of the 4th round match between Lleyton Hewitt and Rafael Nadal at the 2005 Australian Open?

I remember watching it at the time and being impressed by how good this young kid was playing and when i recently had a look at the ATP website I remembered just how close Nadal came to winning this match: just a matter of points really.

Had he beaten Hewitt do you think he would have had a reasonable chance of beating Nalbandian in the QFs?

I've checked on youtube but have only come across their Queens Club encounter so it would be appreciated it someone could provide a link to watch highlights of that 4th round match.

Lets play the "what if" game.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

No idea where you can get it from, but the match was awesome so persevere with it. And when you get it, count the number of times they pick their asses. It's the battle of the bumpickers!
