Hey everyone, I got back a few minutes ago from watching Lleyton's match. First, I know you all want to know that the whole crew was there -- Mum, Dad, Kim, Roger, and some other people I didn't recognize. Lleyton won 6-1, 6-2, although Carlsen did get a total of 3 BPs against him. He didn't look quite as sharp as he did in the matches I saw from Cincy (Safin and part of Robredo), but he did have a pretty good first serve percentage. I'm sure he'll be getting better as the week progresses. He got a warm reception from the crowd, which was nice.

I was sitting in front of young girl, who kept on asking, "how did he get to that shot?" I guess she wasn't expeciting his speed. He did make a few very nice "gets."

If anybody has any specific questions, I'll be happy to try to answer them.

LEGG MASON TENNIS CLASSIC
Washington, D.C., U.S.A.
August 16, 2004
Hewitt in Cruise Control in Washington

Australian Lleyton Hewitt cruised through to the second round of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington Monday with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Danish veteran Kenneth Carlsen.

The 23-year-old No. 2 seed, playing in Washington for the first time since 1998 when he ranked No. 157 at the time, needed only 66 minutes to record his third win in three meetings against the Dane.

Hewitt, who reached the final at ATP Masters Series Cincinnati eight days ago, saved three break points in the match while breaking Carlsen twice in each set. Hewitt, who takes on Colombian Alejandro Failla in the second round on Wednesday, improved to 44-13 on the season, including 24-5 on hard courts.

Raemon Sluiter rallied to defeat Todd Martin 6-7(5), 7-6(3), 7-6(5) in the longest match on opening day (2:41). Martin was playing in his first tournament since a second round loss at Wimbledon. He had been sidelined this summer with a knee injury. Both players won 129 points each and Sluiter fired 19 aces and Martin 17. The Dutchman saved eight of 10 break points and the American 10 of 12 break points. Both players exchanged breaks in the first set and Martin won the last three points in the tie-break to win the opening set 7-5.

In the second set, Sluiter won the tie-break 7-3 to even the match. In the final set, Martin led 4-2 but was broken two games later. In the tie-break, Martin was serving at 5-4 but lost the next two points on his serve before Sluiter ended the match with a 130 mph ace.

Elsewhere in first round action, No. 3 seed and 2001 Legg Mason finalist Sjeng Schalken retired against Gilles Muller, trailing 1-6, 1-0. Schalken, who retired for the second time in three tournaments, stopped due to fatigue.

Schalken has failed to advance past the second round in four hard court tournaments this summer since reaching the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the third straight year. Muller, making his first appearance in Washington, will now await the winner of the first round match between Jan-Michael Gambill and Stefan Koubek.

No. 4 seed Robby Ginepri dropped the second set against 2000 Legg Mason champion Alex Corretja before coming through 7-6(4), 4-6, 6-3. Corretja, who was appearing in his first hard court tournament since Indian Wells in March, was playing for the first time since his first round loss at Wimbledon on June 21.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID:
Hewitt: "I was happy to get the break in the second set (at two all) because I felt like he raised his game. I kind of jumped him at the start of the first set. He's the kind of guy that could get into a lot of tie-breaks and make life difficult for you out there. I was happy to save a couple of break points the game before I broke him.

"I had a week off last week after Cincinnati and it gave me a lot of confidence coming in here. Coming here this year fits into my schedule, then having a week off before the US Open works out well."

Sluiter: "This is nice to play a tough match with the US Open coming up in a couple of weeks. He's a great player and he knows his way around the court. He's dangerous on hard courts especially."

TUESDAY PREVIEW
First round action at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic continues on Tuesday, with five-time champion Andre Agassi and 2002 winner James Blake among those taking center stage.

In the first match of the day on Center Court, American wild card Brian Baker takes on Denmark's Kristian Pless for the first time. Baker, the 19-year-old from Nashville, Tennessee, arrives in Washington for the second time having captured the Challenger title in Denver two weeks ago. The American began the year by winning the Futures title in Tampa, and reached another Futures final there later in the year in May. The 23-year-old Pless made his first and only previous appearance in Washington in 1999, losing in the second round against Todd Martin. Pless is looking to claim his first match win on the ATP circuit this year (0-3).

Following them onto court will be American Jan-Michael Gambill and Austrian Stefan Koubek. This will be the sixth meeting between the two, with Gambill leading their head-to-head series 3-2. This is their first encounter since the first round of the NASDAQ-100 Open in Miami in 2003, when Koubek won in three sets. This will be their fifth meeting on U.S. soil. Gambill, a quarterfinalist in Washington in 2000 (l. to Kiefer), has an 11-17 record in 2004, having reached quarterfinals in San Jose, Memphis and Scottsdale. He has lost his last three first round matches in Newport, Indianapolis and Cincinnati since reaching the third round at Wimbledon (l. to Grosjean). Koubek, playing in Washington for the first time, has a 12-18 record so far this year and is making his first appearance on hard courts since the NASDAQ-100 Open in March.

Next up on Center Court, top seed Andre Agassi makes his 15th consecutive appearance in Washington as he takes on fellow American Paul Goldstein. Agassi, who made his Washington debut in 1987 and has played every year since 1990, is looking to claim his sixth title. The 34-year-old, who captured his 17th ATP Masters Series shield at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati, has won both of his previous meetings against Goldstein - including in Washington in 2000, when they met in the third round. Agassi has won the title five times (1990-91, '95, '98-99) and reached the final in 2000. He has a 41-10 record in the tournament and has reached the semifinal or better every year since '98 - reaching three straight finals between 98-2000. Goldstein is making his ninth appearance in Washington since 1995. His best performance came in 1999, when he advanced to the quarterfinals (d. Corretja in 3rd RD, l. to Todd Martin).

In the final match of the day, 2002 champion James Blake faces Chilean Adrian Garcia. Blake is making just his second appearance on the ATP circuit since slipping into a netpost during a practice session at the Telecom Italia Masters in Rome. Blake returned to action in Newport after a two-month injury lay-off, but has not played since losing in the second round to Alex Bogomolov Jr. Garcia arrives in Washington having reached the quarterfinals in Sopot on clay last week (l. to Mantilla). This is his first ATP appearance on hard courts this year and only the second of his career on the surface. His only previous hard court appearance came in the Davis Cup tie against the Bahamas in April 2001, when he defeated Marvin Rolle in straight sets.

I didn't forget about you! :) I stopped by the grandstand court to see Michel lose the first set. :rolleyes: Frankly, at that time, he was being out-played by Moodie, who wasn't making any mistakes. I watched the first few games of the second set, but then the friend I was with wanted to eat, so I didn't see the rest of the match. I'll try to do better on Wednesday, if he plays. I'm not going today, because there aren't any matches that I really want to see.

Hey guys!!!!!! Omigod, I am so excited b/c finally I saw Lleyton in the flesh. He is even more beautiful in person. When I get home, I will upload all my pictures. He is the sweetest player to all the kids!! He has such good manners. He is always walking about, always stopping to sign autographs and take photos, no matter where he needs to be. He doesnt try and hide from anybody. He is just such a great person!! And Kim was there!!!!!!!! LOL I worked endlessly to spot her in the stands--it was so surreal to see her. I couldnt believe it. Now I know I truly love her more than maybe Guga and Gonzo combined! When the match was over, she put on a green hat, and everyone attacked her for autographs. She signed as many as she could--I wanted to get a picture of her or even a closer glimpse of her, but by the time I reached the crowd that formed around her, she was gone--it was as if she disappeared!

Anyway, Lleyton practiced with Ginepri--I have pictures of that. So I will upload them later this week. Bye guys!

Part of me is just amazed that Agassi lost, but on the other hand, he had very easy matches this week, and couldn't have been challenged. Lletyon really looked so good today after that close one with Saulnier on Friday -- like they say, sometimes you have to have a close match to get to your best tennis, and I'm guessing that was what happened with him.

I'm hoping Lleyton will come out roaring tomorrrow and never lets Muller into the match.

Hewitt overpowers Muller to win third title of season


WASHINGTON (AFP) - Australia's Lleyton Hewitt further fine-tuned his game ahead of the US Open with a convincing 6-3, 6-4 win over Gilles Muller to capture the 500,000 dollar Washington Open.

The former world number one collected his third win of 2004 and first in six months in smoothly subduing a late charge from the 21-year-old from Luxembourg.


Muller, who upset Andre Agassi in the semi-finals, entered the event with only one career ATP win.


Hewitt will move into a world number five ranking as a result of this week in which he lost only one set and polished his form for an assault on the last Grand Slam of the season which starts in one week.


"It was nice to get another win, but my last final was only two weeks ago," said Hewitt, beaten by Agassi in Cincinnati. "I'm happy with how my game is progressing over these last few weeks on hardcourt."


Hewitt will play next week at Long Island as a final preparation for the Open. "It's going well, I'm looking forward to the next week and then the Open."


The Australian won a stretch of eight out of nine games at mid-match before battling on to the victory in 77 minutes.


"It was a hard match in the sense that I hadn't seen him play before. He's talented and his main weapon is his serve. He has the groundstrokes and can put pressure on you."


But the holder of two grand Slam titles and twice a year-end number one added: "I was on his serve from the start, I had break points in the first game.


"The pressure kept building up and eventually I had to get the break, I'm happy to come away with the win in straights sets."


Muller, the first man from Luxembourg to play for an ATP title, was disappointed only by the fact that he didn't perform well on the day.


"He was just too good today," Muller said. "I was excited after beating Agassi, but I knew I had another match to play.


"I had a chance, if I had been playing like I did yesterday, it would have been closer. But I can't lose serve four times in a match.


"I was too tight, he was running everywhere. Sometimes, it was hopeless, I would have three or four shots in a row and every time the ball came back."


Lleyton Hewitt beats Gilles Muller to win title in Washington



WASHINGTON (AP) - Lleyton Hewitt strong first serve and excellent court coverage ended the best week of Gilles Muller's career.

Hewitt beat the Luxembourg player 6-3, 6-4 Sunday in the final of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic. The second-seeded Australian became the fifth player this year with at least three ATP Tour titles. His other victories came in Sydney and Rotterdam.

Muller eliminated top-seeded Andre Agassi on Saturday to reach his first final but struggled to handle the early pressure applied by Hewitt.

"I was maybe a little too tight today," said Muller, who entering the week had won just one ATP match. "It was so difficult to play. It was like I was playing against the wall. He was running so fast, he was running everywhere. I kind of lost a lot of confidence."

Added Hewitt: "I'd love to be the wall -the wall doesn't lose too much."

Hewitt, who also reached the final in his previous tournament in Cincinnati, is tuning his game for the U.S. Open.

"I'm just trying to put as much pressure on him as possible, make him play that one extra shot," said Hewitt, who earned $69,200 US for the victory. "If he's good enough to hit the winner then so be it."

Muller, aside from a backhand he whiffed in the third game of the match, withstood the pressure long enough to save the first five break points he faced. Hewitt finally solved Muller's serve to pull ahead 4-3 and broke again to close the first set.

Hewitt served for the match at 5-3, but for the second time in the set he double-faulted to end a game, allowing Muller to get back on serve.

"I just didn't get enough first serves in in those two games," Hewitt said. "I served extremely well up to that point, maybe as well as I'd served all tournament. I sort of put myself under a little bit of pressure right from the start. But, then again, I returned well in the next game when I got the break."

Muller failed to take advantage of either opportunity. His double-fault gave Hewitt two match points, and play ended when Muller's drop shot landed in the net.

Your wish is my command :angel: She looked adorable of course. Had on sunglasses and a black sleeveless top that looked sort of shimmery :scratch: She was smiling of course :D When Lleyton said her name she got a big round of applause from the crowd so she waved :angel: He was smiling too and he was really sweet. He said it was so nice to have Kim there because she can't be there every week. And I actually think the interviewer ( Mal Washington) might be a closet Lleyki because Lleyton didn't seem to have any intention of thanking his bench ( he had thanked the sponsors/organizers earlier in the interview) so Mal said something like Do you want to say hello to the people who've been here with you this week and really the whole summer and then Lleyton smiled and said that yes he would like to thank them. Made a nice little 'speech' about Roger, saying their hard work was finally paying off and then he thanked Kim :D And I think that's all for details lol I have it on tape though ( of course ;) ) so I'll check later if I missed anything but I think that's it lol

Well done Lleyts! Title AND back in the top 5 :bigclap: :yippee: (btw, sorry if this is a dumb question - does this mean that if Coria pulls out of the US Open then Lleyts will get a top 4 seeding?)

Congrats Lleyton! :clap2: :hatoff: I hope these 2 tournaments before the us open are not too much for him.he knows what's the best for him, but methinks some rest would do him good :tape:

Yes, it does, and from what I'm reading in the press, Coria is not expected to play.

Coria is def not playing, he is out for at least 3 months I think. Did not think Lleyton would be seeded 4 coming into the US Open a few weeks ago :)
