Not the best performance by Youzhny, but full credit to Lleyton "cmoooon" Hewitt. Still some juice left in those burnt out legs.

Cracker. Hewitt lost his momentum in the second set after leading 6-4, 3-1.

04-27-2010, 01:41 PM
Sometimes we forget Hewitt is still out there and has no intention of fading away! Nice victory.

Lleyton was consistent, hit the ball deep, was aggressive at the right times and moved decently. That's all it took at the end of the day, since the Colonel was making truckloads of errors.

Good performance, and GGL in the second round is a winnable match.

Mikki :sad:

GGL will take care of him :yeah:

bad for my draw challenge, but CMON hewitt!!! could play verdasco in the round after next :)

Youzless at it again. Good stuff from rusty, but it doesn't take much from a good player to take out youzless.

Impressive from Lleyton, thought he was screwed after losing the 2nd after being a break up a couple of times.

Youz form fading a little it seems. He did pick up a lot of wins over the last 6 months, perhaps inevitable.

04-27-2010, 02:02 PM
i admit i'm surprised.

Misha+clay= 59 ue's
2 first round exits in a row for Misha, not good if you want to reach TOP 10

There are two aspects of Lleyton Hewitt's game that are extremely underrated. One is his volleys and the other is his claycourt game. He is a lot better on clay than what people give him credit for, so much better than someone like Roddick but I guess that doesn't say a lot.

Well done Lleyts! Not the most interesting match, but a win is a win :)

04-27-2010, 04:07 PM
Quite a sloppy performance by Youzhny but playing Hewitt is never easy. I am happy to see Lleyton still winning matches like this.

04-27-2010, 04:32 PM
Well done Hewitt. Terrific win.

04-27-2010, 05:43 PM

Ridiculous how Lleyton keeps making matches he is controlling more difficult for himself.

04-28-2010, 12:58 AM
hell yes, keep goin' Lleyton :yeah:
