OK, got back from the Legg Mason, after being on site some 6 1/2 hours! Am I a dedicated fan or what???? I have to give credit to the crowd, most people hung around for the match. While the match got completed before the night session began, so the tournament didn't have to refund any tickets, they did say that they would hand out extra night session tickets to as many of us day session folks as they could, which was a very nice gesture.

After a 4 hour rain delay, :umbrella: with the court being dried THREE times only to have the rain start again, Lleyton played a wonderful, clinical match against Ginepri. Lleyton served beautifully, handled Ginepri's pace with ease, and really had no problems whatsoever. The only glitch I saw was when he had 3 BPs on Ginepri and lost that game, but to his credit, Ginepri served himself out of trouble in that game. If Robby had played that well the entire match, it would be have much more competitive.

What really impressed me was how great Lleyton's serving was today. He used the entire box, varied his pace, and really frustrated Ginepri. Even though Ginepri usually serves harder than Lleyton does, Lleyton was doing a great job reading his serves, while Robby seemed to be unable to read Lleyton's. Most of Lleyton's aces and SWs were wide serves that Robby hardly moved toward.

They had some excellent rallies, and Lleyton was determined to make Robby dig the ball out of the court a lot of the time, which was a very successful strategy. Robby's solution to most of his problems was to hit the stuffing out of ball, which led him to overhit a lot. He displayed negative body language throughout most of the match, which, when you're playing Hewitt, is like throwing chum to a hungry shark. :devil: This was definitely Lleyton's best match this week, very clean and efficient.

Good luck to Lleyton tomorrow against Agassi!
