Benneteau looked extremely tired after the first set and played quite poor tennis after it. The third set wasn't to bad Hewitt broke early and led 2-0 only to be broken back. He broke again at 3-3. I can't stand Hewitt, yelling Come on of Benneteau errors.

What the hell are you talking about? He barely said it through the match. Just looking for a whinge there. Hewitt was very quiet today, do you want players to be fucking robots or something.

Hewitt's fitness was what got him out of that match. Didn't see the first set but Lleyton still getting very tight on some of his groundies.

I agree, aussie fan. The few times Lleyton did show any emotion where either after winners he hit on big points or after long rallies on big points. Several of these long rallies did end due to an error by Benneteau, but Rusty provoked the misses with his consistency and quickness. If anything, he was "come on"ing his own fitness and focus. Nobody has the right to take those points of pride away from him.

Naah i like all the entertainers, just cant stand it when he yells come on, some people may like it i can't stand it. Hewitt still needs to improve a lot. I expected more from him today.

Dude, half of the players on tour yell out come on during a tight 3rd set.

Hewitt didn't look to be playing at his best, luckily Benneteau was fatigued due to the weather. Tipsarevic is next.

Hi guys,

could someone post a link to the Yonex shirt (that green one) Hewitt was wearing as seen on the ATP homepage?

It isn't listed under Yonex apparel in the ATP shop.

Thank you!

Good win for Hewitt, probably as good as it will get for him.

Yes Lleygers needs to improve quite a bit, he looked very rusty and weak at Perth. His groundies lacked pace and depth most of the time. Even his consistent backhand seemed consistently weak and short. His movement seems to continue to improve which is an encouraging sign, a ranking of top 30 is possible for him
I don't see him doing any better for the moment. His serve issues are still there and he's only getting older unfortunately. Nonetheless, I still enjoy a good ole C'mon from Rusty! ;)
