Hewitt's draw opens up
From correspondents in Key Biscayne, Florida
March 27, 2004

LLEYTON HEWITT breezed into the third round of the ATP Masters Series event in Miami, Florida today, his bid for a third 2004 title bolstered when two top rivals were blown away.

The 23-year-old Australian defeated Sweden's Robin Soderling 6-4 6-2 in blustery conditions and advanced to a third-round match-up with 50th-rated Romanian Andrei Pavel, who beat Chilean 10th seed Nicolas Massu 7-6 (7-3) 6-1.

"It was an awkward match condition-wise," Hewitt said. "It was windy out there. It was tough conditions. Just had to try and be patient and take your chances when they came and not get too frustrated at times."

Hewitt, ranked 18th, received another break in his portion of the draw when British seventh seed Tim Henman lost to Austrian Jurgen Melzer 7-6 (7-3) 2-6 7-6 (7-4).

That makes Hewitt the man to beat all the way into the quarter-finals, when he could face Swiss world No.1 Roger Federer, who is coming off a title last week at Indian Wells and at January's Australian Open.

Hewitt, who has already won titles this year in Sydney and Rotterdam, sought his third consecutive Indian Wells crown but lost in the third round to Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela 6-3 4-6 6-1.

"Indian Wells, it was out of my mind straightaway," Hewitt said. "I've been hitting the ball well since I got here, in practice the last week or so."

Hewitt needed just 71 minutes to advance, smashing 10 aces and 23 winners past the 48th-rated Swede. Showers began seconds after the finish, hastening Hewitt's departure from the court.

"Nine times out of 10 I played it pretty well," Hewitt said. "Had to play to percentages a little bit more than normal I would say. It was hard to go for a lot of shots. I served pretty well considering the conditions.

"It's just one of those matches you want to get out of the way and get in the locker room as soon as possible. On a day like that you're happy to come away with the win. I was happy to get off the court before it started raining."

Hewitt's focus shifts to Pavel, whom he beat last year in the third round at Indian Wells in their only meeting.

"He's a very awkward player," Hewitt said. "He has all the shots in the book. I've just got to go out there and play my game, try to finish my service games as quickly and easily as possible and then I feel like I've got a few chances on his service games."

(prefix number denotes seeding)

Second round
