If Andy is playing as well as everyone is saying he is playing then it's going to be difficult for Lleyton to win.

However I'm tipping Leyton's psychological edge to get him through in a brutal 3 and a half hour match.

6-7, 7-6, 7-6

I expect lots of swearing, shouting, scrapping, ball-bashing and a lawn mower rip after the last point is played.

C'mon!!!!!!

my two cents is hewitt to win - returning like a gem this tournamnet and along with federer are two players in the world where andy's main weapon is blunted

My pick is Hewitt for the mental edge but Roddick is not about to give him a present.

yes, GWH, I mentioned you in my post about the Roddick v. Moya match, he found the Backhand DTL, so you were right. ;)

Impossible for me to call. I'd pick Roddick because he's playing as well as I've seen him play, but Hewitt obviously knows how to beat him. Roddick was asked about the AO05 loss in his post match today and was tallking about not going for so many stupid winners this time. He was talking about working harder to win the points.

But that was talk, we'll see tommorow. Hewitt is definitely not Novak, Gonzo, or Moya, but I think Roddick should still take him out.

I mean Moya runs around his forehand so much he was in the Pacific ocean, if someone can't hit a backhand dtl when that's the case, then there are problems. Lets see him do it under pressure in the tightest situation, he's just confirming his homer reputation.

Hewitt will still win this though.

Of course I respect it, Andy got W next to his name in the Moya match and is in the semis and that's enough, he's still a homer and now he needs to step it up against an opponent he has had problems with.

Roddick should win, but I think Hewitt will win like their match at the Australian Open. Roddick probably will find a way to lose this match.

I'm going to go for Roddick, but only if he manages to employ a reasonable strategy against Hewitt. The last couple of times they've met, Andy has decided to come to the net a lot, often off very average approach shots. Andy's volleys are pretty poor (its nice to see him trying to improve but don't do it in matches against Hewitt until you're ready), and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that Hewitt loves a target at the net (see head to head with Timmy). I'd say Andy would be better off employing his tactics that he used against Federer early on in the Wimbledon final, being patient and then unleashing on the forehand when he has a chance. No matter how good Hewitt's defence undoubtedly is, there's not much he'd be able to do if Andy is firing. There's no point in Andy sitting there and rallying with Hewitt all day, he'll lose eventually.

I'd also say his returning is going to be pretty crucial. Hewitt's 1st serve % has been low all week, Andy's gotta take some chances and try and crack a few off the 2nd serve. Too often Andy's returns land in the middle of the court with nothing on it. I definitely think Andy has the weapons to beat Hewitt, its just a case of whether he can find the balanced gameplan in my opinion.

I think Lleyton will win in 3. I would have preferred him to be coming into this match after beating Agassi, as he has not been really pushed too hard yet but I still hope he can come through this.

Hewitt hasn't played any real matches yet in this tournament, that might be of some help for Roddick. Otherwise I can't see him changing his losing record against Hewitt.

What an incredible match it was. Hewitt looked in total command first set and a half, went a set and a break up and then gifted the break back to Roddick. Then all of a sudden Andy became a lot more agressive and deservedly won the 2nd set. 3rd set could've gone either way, Hewitt had a lot of break points but Andy kept finding huge 1st serves. Andy had quite a few chances of his own, my feeling was he might well have won the match if he'd stuck to his strategy of unleashing when the ball was there to be hit. I felt on the break points he had in the 3rd set, and in the 3rd set tie break he got a little tight and unleashed when they weren't really there to be hit.
