Llikes his comebacks, does Hewitt. Pity about that second set, could have been more symmetrical.

Wow just wow, just when he looks down and out especially a break down in the 3rd, he plays like a warrior and grinds it out, proved me wrong, and deserves credit.

Re: Hewitt beats Russel in 5 sets (3-6,2-6,6-36-3,6-3)

That's why american tennis is in crises. Their players have a horrible psysical shape and they have mental blockages. That net shot that gives Hewitt the brake point is almost impossible to fail!

Never understood why people don't like Hewitt....

The heart and desire he shows in court is just amazing. Great win!

Great win from Hewitt, especially with all those difficulties he's had in the last few weeks. This should boost his confidance.

Re: Hewitt beats Russel in 5 sets (3-6,2-6,6-36-3,6-3)

What a comeback, I mean, Russel really played very well.
When I saw Hewitt down one break in 3rd set, probably no hope there.
But still there were some great shots, Hewitt just fought back,
its certainly a great fight from Hewitt, it was really nice to see that.

Can't say I enjoy the way Hewitt plays, but he deserves credit for the heart he gave that match. I honestly thought he was out of it.

As soon as I saw that Russell was his opponent, I just knew it would be that kind of match.
It's great to see how Lleyton never gives up and gives the best of himself. What a difference with headcase Malisse who I feel is going to lose against Clément, and only for one reason: his BAD attitude.
