My sentiments exactly. It's rare for two of my favs to meet up. But, Lleyton...what's with blowing all those leads in the third?

Max is very tricky on grass especially with that huge serve. He can attack on the return sometimes.

Good win for Lleyt.

:sad: So close, Max. And you've beaten him before. Good try!

I hope someone doesn't let Lleyton get away with this anymore and beats his ass. :D

Good win for Lleyt.Yep, Luis. And even though they haven't played against each other often, they're well-known to each other. And we all know Lleyton has trouble with tall, lanky big servers from Central Europe. :lol:

Now...let's see if we get a Hewitt/Nadal rematch...on grass. :smoke:

Hey gal. :hug:

Yup the two most intense baseliner's playing on grass wouldn't that be something. Lleyton seems more comfortable on grass and has had the better results. Nadal is stilll learning to play on grass. Pretty intriguing.

Pretty intriguing.I've been saying for months...it's time for Lleyton to get his lil a$$ to net more often...and this would be the time to do it. I think the pace of the grass will somewhat ameliorate Rafa's defensive skills...so c'mon, Lleyton! Should be one of the better matchups -- certainly of personalities as well as skills.

Not really. Ivo almost always loses in tie-breaks.

Well, a player could have the biggest serve in the game, but it wouldn't help him if he's a nervous wreck. Max often misses easy volleys when he's under pressure. He's too nervous in critical situations and his poor tiebreak record reflects that. :sobbing:
