Ollie's guts never in question - looks like his legs ran out at the end though.

Well done to Hewitt for keeping Australia in it.

This would be good for Lleyton's confidence going into next week's tournaments.

Hewitt`s only played 7-matches in 2007
...
already he`s played 3 5-setters & 2 4-setters!!
...
I think this is part of his plan to get quality practice in for the rest of the season!!<

Lleyton! What a sensational performance.

His first two sets were some of the best tennis he’s played for quite a while. He hit a staggering 24 winners in the second set alone and some of them were amazing. He was two points away from winning in straight sets when Rochus was down 0-30 serving at 5-6 however Rochus fought extremely well and made Lleyton work and work.

You’re all heart Lleyton. Another Davis Cup victory, another 5 set victory.

Cmon Aussie Cmon!

Well done Lleyton

Wish I could have seen this match. Always good to see Lleyton is full on Davis Cup fighting mode

Excellent match from Lleyton. Although I'm Belgian, I was happy that Belgium drew Australia and especially that Lleyton played because it was a good chance to see him play on TV.

He was serving and returning very well, and his netplay was on as well. This match showed once again that he is one of the best players on the ATP although his recent results were disappointing. I also thought he looked very comfortable on the clay. If he plays like this, he's an outsider for Roland Garros.

Kudos to Ollie for making Lleyton work for it but in the end he did not have enough in the tank. To beat Lleyton Ollie needed to play at his best the whole match and that simply is not possible.
