Re: Indian Wells 2005

Lleyton

It sounds like a really windy night from the reports. I'm glad both Ll and Kim got through those tough second sets unscathed.

*goes to check who is up next*

I think it's Hrbaty.

Edit: Oops, it's Llodra. Good luck, Ll! For Tuesday, it looks like.

Re: Indian Wells 2005

Pfff don't tell me he's playing a frenchie once more Anyway that would be really nice if one of Kim or Lleyton could get to the final because I'm going home at the week end and the finals are the only matches I'll be able to watch

LLEYTON Hewitt yesterday notched his first ATP match win since the Australian Open with a straight-sets victory against American Robby Ginepri at the Indian Wells Masters in California.

After enjoying a first-round bye, the world No. 2 outclassed Ginepri 6-2 7-6 (7-2) in 1hr 33min to set up a clash with French left-hander Michael Llodra.
Hewitt's only other competitive outing since losing to Marat Safin in the Australian Open final six weeks ago was a straight-sets destruction of lowly ranked Alexander Peya in Australia's Davis Cup win against Austria in Sydney.

He is bidding to join American Michael Chang as a three-time champion in Indian Wells after his back-to-back desert triumphs in 2002-03.

World No. 1 Roger Federer opened the defence of his title yesterday with a 6-3 6-3 win against Mardy Fish.

The 23-year-old Swiss star, who is seeking his 26th career singles title, won in 70 minutes in front of a crowd of 10,000.

"I felt good right away," Federer said. "My movement was good. I just feel quicker here than at other places.

Federer has picked up in 2005 where he left off last year, winning ATP titles in Doha, Rotterdam and Dubai.

"My goal this year is to stay No. 1 in the world and try and defend Wimbledon," Federer said. "I am after titles now. I am not after semi-finals and second rounds."

Federer faces Luxembourg's Gilles Muller, who beat Czech Radek Stepanek 6-3 3-6 6-0.

The Russian assault on the women's event continued.

Elena Dementieva and Svetlana Kuznetsova both advanced, as did the next generation of Russians.

Two promising youngsters, Evgenia Linetskaya and qualifier Maria Kirilenko, blasted their way into the third round with Linetskaya scoring the biggest upset, a 2-6 6-2 7-5 win over French world No. 2 Amelie Mauresmo.

"It is so nice to see all of us doing so well," Linetskaya said. "All the Russians are coming here and there are so many of them. I was thinking to myself, `Why can't I make the same? If everybody is there, I will be there as well'."

Of five Russians competing, Anna Chakvetadze was the only one to lose, falling 6-1 7-6 (7-4) to Belgian Kim Clijsters.

"It is unbelievable," Clijsters said. "There are so many (Russians) I don't even know about but I hear about them from my sister because they play juniors.

"And there are still so many girls still practising in Russia."

Re: Indian Wells 2005

Posted on the Lleytonland message board. A few days ago the Herald Sun quoted Lleyton's dad, saying that Octagon would still be involved.


Hewitt reiterates he’s done with Octagon
By Matthew Cronin, tennisreporters.net

Lleyton Hewitt re-confirmed on Sunday that he had severed ties with his longtime management company, Octagon and his agent, Tom Ross. He's hired Cricket Australia commercial affairs manager Rob Aivatoglou to take on management duties.

Hewitt denied a Herald Sun report that said Octagon will still be involved. "There’s been no change," Hewitt told TennisReporters.net and The LA Times. "It’s pretty much what I said the other day. Rob will handle the day-to-day stuff and be responsible for any new deals. If someone else brings me a deal, Rob and my dad [Glynn] will look at it. Octagon has been calling my dad daily and talking to him, but things are the same."

Hewitt – who defeated Robby Ginepri 6-2, 7-6 on Sunday – said he hired Aivatoglou because he wanted more control and for his management to be "more one-on-one based and that suits my personality better. In the long run, it will be better for me on and off court."

Re: Indian Wells 2005

Thanks for the articles

Though you know ( ), I find it bizarre that Lleyton making a responsible business decision is portrayed as 1. news and 2. somehow slightly negative. No-one publishes articles that XYZ player appears to have absolutely no financial advice or long term plan whatsoever and is frittering away their winnings at an alarming rate!

Good luck tomorrow Lleyton
