Who said Lleyton isnt any good on clay? :)
Very GJ...Seems he is gonna play Simon now who is whooping Davydenko...That seems like a tough matchup cause he's gotta create his own pace against Simon..But I see him getting through that :)

Nice match from Hewitt - he was aggressive for most of it and the match was decided by his play rather than Chela's.

Chela will be disappointed by that - and losing to Hewitt on slow clay of all surfaces will taste like shit in his mouth :)

Way to go Rocky Llegs!!!<:)

Stop harping on the spit. Its not like Hewitt is Captain Angel, have you forgotten his Aus Open 2005 Final shenanigans and about a billion other instances.

I watched the match live....


Chela wouldnt take any chances. He could of taked the set (2 break point oppurtunities) for a 7-5.

Hewitt was playing good. But Chela was playing very bad. And he got very exaughsted. But either way its good to see hewitt back

Hewitt would probably get his legs amputated than lose a match to Chela.

haha this is very funny
when the draw came out many people were saying that hewitt doesn't stand a chance in this tourney because he was surrounded by argentinians.
Now look what he did to them!

Cmon Hewitt good luck in your next match Good on ya son!!

Lleyton was marvelous today without doubt. Superb play at the net, something he needs to make more of a priority in future IMO.

wow, good result for lleyton...i didn't expect him to get through calleri or chela, but it's good he's found some form..

*bunny*
05-16-2007, 03:53 PM
Lleyton's net play and inside-out forehand were brilliant today! :D
Chela played more aggressively in the second set, but LLeyton dominated the tie break.
Hope he can keep this form!

How was the handshake at the end?

Lleyton said something like "good match," Chela just shook and turned away.

Lleyton played AWESOME tennis for about 90% of this match.

Did anyone notice Hewitt telling someone to "Fuck off" or sumtin to that effect after he got the break in the second set.....it's in the highlights, he "say C'mon!! Fuck sumtin sumtin"

Fantastic match by Lleyton. When he can get pumped up, he still has it.

The only real reason he doesnt deliver are his injuries really....if he's fit, he is still one of the best. Even on clay...I am looking really forward to his match against either davy or simon

Hewitt definitely raised his game for this match, congrats, I didn't expect him to go through here.

Didn't see the match. But I thought Chela would win considering his form this season and Hewitt's performances on clay as of late.

I noticed that too. I thought it was something to the effect of "fuckin' right" or "fuckin' go"...not directed at anyone, just a stronger "come on!"

Excellent match by Hewitt for the set and a half this was among his best claycourt performances. He wasn't passive at all and went after the match and Chela didn't adjust his tactics til it was too late and not taking those set points when on offer came to bite him in the arse.

Too good from the Cmon Kid, one thing about Hewitt, when he loses to players on clay, it's not to gimps usually.

Yeah really positive play from Hewitt:cool: :D

Did you see the handshake at the end of the match??
>>>
As always Lleyton gave a warm handshake [in victory or defeat]:angel:
Whereas Chela had a typically dour face & token effort:o

Here`s the highlights:)
