Beat Calleri today!! :rocker2:

Hopefully Calleri doesn't have one of his "awesome, I can beat everybody days" today... but I don't think this happens so early in the season... so I hope he beats him!

Yeah, Lleyton, good luck and keep on kicking Tennis Australia's arse! :kiss:

He probably won't get the no2 seeding even if he wins the tournament...but I dont' think it really makes a difference. He will have to beat Federer if he want to win the AO anyway

Lleyton knocked out by Dent in the Quarter finals

Hewitt's plans dented
By Leo Schlink
January 8, 2005

TAYLOR DENT last night rocked Lleyton Hewitt's Australian Open preparations with a stunning straight sets victory over the world No. 3 in the Next Generation Hardcourts at Memorial Drive in Adelaide.

Lleyton Hewitt struggles with a backhand last night.

The son of former Australian Davis Cup player and Australian Open finalist Phil Dent, the American hammered out a deserved 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 quarter-final result on the back of his jackhammer serve.

The strapping serve-volleyer will today face Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela in search of his first singles final on Australian soil.

Hewitt will prepare to travel to Sydney for the Medibank International at Homebush Bay, lamenting the two double faults from deuce which cost him a service break at 2-1 in the second set.

But he was not bothered by the defeat, declaring he is still building towards peak form for Melbourne Park after a pair of impressive wins over Arnaud Clement and Agustin Calleri.

"It's disappointing but you have to look at the big picture," Hewitt said.

"I thought I was the better player out there for a set and a half. It was one of those awkward matches.

"Taylor is a bit hit and miss and he's difficult to get rhythm against. I felt I didn't get much of the racquet. The conditions were heavy and probably suited Taylor a bit.

"I've got Sydney next week and I want to be playing my best tennis on January 17 [for the start of the Australian Open]. I don't think for the Australian Open it's [defeat] a huge concern."

Dent, 23, was delighted at finally beating Hewitt, his first success in four attempts.

"It was one of the better matches I've played in a couple of years now," he said.

Dent reflected last night on his emotional dilemma over whether to play Davis Cup for Australia or the US, the nation of his mother Betty Ann Stuart, a former player.

"I would have loved to have played for Australia," he said.

"It was my dream, but the USTA did so much for me, it would have been like kicking sand in their face. It would have reflected poorly on me and my father."

Dent dropped serve only once in the 86-minute contest, saving four break points.

He won 88 percent of his first serve, starving Hewitt of opportunities.

The South Australian was allowed a measly five points for the match on Dent's first ball and converted just one of five break opportunities
