...will he be inspired to do the same thing in Shanghai?

will they celebrate by holding their trophies aloft, together, in some kind of romantic side-by-side gesture as they lock lips and gaze into each other's eyes?

or will Marat, Moya, and hopefully Agassi succeed in spoiling the party?

i don't mind it that Kim won in LA. in fact i'm quite happy for her. but if she inspires the Potato to do likewise, i will be most unhappy. any decent boyfriend would allow the woman her space and glory and not try to crowd it with an honor of his own...:p ;) ;)

Hewitt and Moya Show Mettle in Shanghai

Reuters
Tuesday, November 12, 2002; 9:07 AM

By Ossian Shine

SHANGHAI, China (Reuters) - A little cranky, a little out of sorts and a little slow out of the blocks, Lleyton Hewitt again fell back on his incandescent desire to win to beat Albert Costa at the Tennis Masters Cup and tighten his grip on the world number one ranking Tuesday.

It is a will to win which enabled him to become the youngest year-end world number one this time last year. It is a will to win which has already bagged him U.S. Open and Wimbledon crowns at the age of 21 and it is a will to win which is keeping him hovering above a sea of tennis talent.

Tuesday Hewitt scrapped, gouged and clawed his way past the French Open champion 6-2 4-6 6-3 to earn 20 ranking points.

The Australian knows only too well how precious those points could prove to be -- he himself overhauled a world number one, Gustavo Kuerten, to steal the year-end honor in the final week of the season last year.

This time round he is the hunted. Andre Agassi now trails him by 108 points and with a maximum 150 points available to the winner here, the seasoned American has Hewitt locked in his sights.

But nobody on the Tour fights harder than Hewitt and his will was on full display for the appreciative Chinese fans at the New Shanghai International Expo Center.

DOGGED FIGHTBACK

A straightforward opening set put Hewitt on his way but a dogged fightback by wily baseliner Costa tested the Australian's mettle.

It was not found wanting as he motored round the court looping forehands for winners and shovelling double-handed backhands in to the corners.

Hewitt was a blur on the distinctive blue Masters Cup court as he forced Costa on to the back foot and clinched a hard-fought victory.

Earlier Spain's Carlos Moya picked up a cool $120,000 for 98 minutes work, beating a tired Marat Safin 6-4 7-5 in the opening match of the $3.7 million extravaganza.

The Spanish former world number one withstood an early barrage of Russian power to secure victory.

Fatigue, both mental and physical, got the better of Safin who still has a Davis Cup final ahead of him later this month when Russia take on France.

"It is a long season. A really long season for me and it is tough," he said. "You know it could go either way and this time he won. What can I say? That is life."

Early in the match the Russian's immense power and sheer size left the contest resembling one of China's great sporting passions -- table tennis -- as he flicked balls away for winner after winner.

But Moya held on, his green shirt slowly darkening under the strain of his exertions as he chased down Safin's pummelled groundstrokes and in the end did enough to win.

"I was able to return his serve and I put him under a lot of pressure. I think that was the difference," Moya said.

A third Spaniard, Juan Carlos Ferrero completes the action on the opening day when he meets Swiss Roger Federer in the night match.

In Hong Kong, if you say someone no matter what ages, male or female look like a "Pork chop" or "pig", it is a very very "insulting" comment It means ugly/fat. Rudeness and impolite.

:eek: :eek: :eek: OMG. what had she done to deserve your disrespect! She may not be the prettiest girl, but she has an angel of a heart. That's more important than appearance, don't you think?

Should we just blame this on WTA, for their effort to promote players based on their looks rahter than their skills:rolleyes:

I think Kimmy is very pretty indeed. In fact, I consider her one of the prettiest and loveliest players on the WTA tour. Her radiant smile and the glimmer in her beautifully warm eyes make her very attractive. :) And who cares about acne anyway? :rolleyes: Everyone gets them at some point.

Ugly as a pig? :eek: How cruel! :fiery:

I know tennis greatness when I see it. And Lleyton Hewitt is the only player of the under age 25 crop who posesses greatness! Did I spell posesses wrong? :confused:

You might want to be careful about that question. I've visited the Lleyton lounge. The Lleykis are just crazy enough to immoblize this board with a deluge of lip-locking pictures, quotes and analyses. Something like the flood that led to Noah to build his ark. ;)

This coming from the same man who also picked Carolina to win the Stanley Cup, and New Jersey to win the NBA Champs.

Just thought that I would remind you.

Now to adress your comments, I would like to say, that I totally disagree.

I think he will likely remain number on next year for most of it at least, and that he has about 3 more slams in him - over the next two years.

As for being the only one under 25 who posseses the ability to be consistently great, and win a lot of big tournaments etc etc, I could not agree with you less.

But I think I've made it clear what I think of your predictions *snickers*
