Convincing victory over a somewhat tricky 1st round opponent. No BP chances for Delic
On to Round 2 then

Easy for Hewitt

Whoever is going to take Hewitt out of the Open has to hit through him. Djokovic better be ready to hit laser beams near the lines.

not that easy to kill off someone like delic. apparently good stuff by lleyton. this kid is kinda growing on me since last year.

It was obvious that Hewiit was goin to win, but i expected more from Delic

08-28-2007, 05:10 PM
Delic didn't show much in this match - constantly threatened on his serve while never making a dent in Hewitt's, which as usual wasn't invincible but effective enough on the day. In addition to his usual strong baseline game, the Aussie also went to net fairly often with success - well done to him for an easy solid win :clap2:

Hewitt`s again showing his best form [haven`t seen him like this since 2005]<:)

Amer is lovely (and very sweaty). I wish he had put up much better fight in this match, but I wonder if that loss to Young last week got into his head. Meh, he's still in doubles with Justin (sweatiest team ever!).

Anyone who is not taking Hewitt seriously here needs to have the meds adjusted. :)

First step taken to a 4th round clash with Nole :yeah:

Seems like a solid match, and very happy with Lley coming in more at
the net.

Great stats for Hewitt, 31 winners to 14 errors, 95% winning percentage on first serve, and 19 out of 22 at the net. Superb start to his Open! :yeah:

Lleyton is looking very good. :) I can''t wait for a Nole and Hewitt Ro16 if it comes to pass.

Hewitt also seemed very at-ease in the studio interview after the match. He said that he has mellowed off the court in the past year and a half or so- and it really does seem as such.

Looks like Hewitt is in good form, good win lleyton

08-28-2007, 08:53 PM
Good start Lleyton :woohoo:

08-28-2007, 10:04 PM
:yeah: Lleyton.

Good first round win :bigclap:

CMON!!!! :rocker2:

Hewitt can never be counted out at Flushing Meadows (apart from when he is playing Federer). He always brings his best tennis to this tournament, and his record here since 2000 is excellent.
