Hewitt served for the match twice at 5-3 in the 2nd set, and then again at 5-3 in the 3rd set where had 2 match points.

Lovely choke by a lovely player.

Good luck at the AO LLEYTON, you'll need it!

:D

First Kohlschreiber, now Seppi - I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR LLEYTON'S EXCUSE FOR LOSING THIS ONE. ;)

I hope Lleyton is able to play anywhere close to 100% in Australia.

The illness seems serious.

Lleyton was 100%.

It could have been a 6-4 6-3 win to Lleyton it if weren't for Seppi's fighting spirit.

Nope.

It could have been 6-4 6-3, would you be asking the same question then? :p

Lleyton was outplayed, and choked on the big points.

But physically, he was fine.

Have you been paying attention?

Lleyton is not 100% right now, plus he lacks match play.

He was still sick, Melzer just couldn't play the hometown boy.

Hence why the second set was much closer than the first, Melzer started off horribly and when he started to play better, it was too late.

you are smoking some seriously good crack if you thought hewitt was not 100% today

he bottled, simple as that - 4 DF's in the whole match and he threw up 2 when serving for the match in the 2nd set and the other 2 in the final set at 5-3.

at least he saved me $130 odd that I was going to shell out for the SF and Final pffffff

but fair play to Seppi, even when he was match point down, he was agressive with his shots, definitely someone to look out for this year IMO.

maybe he is only losing because he didn't play very much in the last year and now he has played two tournaments in two weeks. He lacks continuity. I think that he's not too involved in changing nappies or sleepless night. :)

I can't remember the last time I've watched a match where Lleyton got broken so many times...probably wouldve been something involving Roger

Seppi played some great tennis, though....kept at it and took advantage of Lleytons slipping when the big moments came.

Hoping the AO sees a quick change in Lleytons form :)

First time in the last 7 years that Hewitt loses a match at the Sydney tournament. He always used to do well in his home tournaments (Adelaide/Sydney) and this year he pretty much sucked at both. I wouldn't take him out of the list of favourites for the Aus. Open though - perhaps this year he'll arrive at Melbourne less tired than on previous years, when he had disappointing performances, with the exception from last year.

it's not seppi's credit at all don't dream he won't go further than the second round at the AO! it's just hewitt's unforced errors he had a very shitty day he wasn't sick he was at 100% he didn't have his toughest mental that's all! what a shame : lose to kolschreiber and then seppi...just can't believe it - Roger will win his 2nd AO crown and all credit is due to him he never loses against people like kolschreiber or seppi

Not a bad performance from a player that is considered a no talent bum by many members of the Mensa society.

It's not like Hewitt has never won matches from positions where he really shouldn't have.

Credit where to Andreas, he played a great match today, he fought hard, served well and put plently of weight on his shots, he had Hewitt on the run on many occasions, infact i think that if Seppi hadn't of made silly easy errors on some points he could of won it in two, he made stupid mistakes on easy putaways at the net on quite a few occasions.

Seppit talentless, youve gotta be kidding, this could be a breakout year for him, he played really well.

FORZA SEPPI

Very true, people switch from over-reaction to indifference so quickly that it is funny. People here write Hewitt off just because he started the season with two losses.

The over reaction police in this forum are as thorough as the KGB were in their heyday and as for Hewitt, well it's the same thing. It was like the clowns who panicked about Safin's form in the Hopman Cup in 05 and look what happened a few weeks later.

I have seen all of Seppi's matches this week apart from the Hewitt one and a certain person its.like that said Seppi would win this match beforehand.

Thankfully, nobody else seemed to agree with me.

But let's not forget Hewitt's triple bypass heart surgery, the amputation of his 4 limbs, the severing of his spinal cord, tetanus and typhoid - amongst other ailments he is currently suffering from.

Your paranoia is getting the best of you. Why can't you support your favorite player without ragging on other players? But keep it up, I find you simply hysterical to read. (However, Andy probably finds it embarrassing that you're one of his fans.)
