This is Hewitt's first match on clay this year. This is a very convincing scoreline for someone who has made a comeback from injury. Good luck Hewitt.

yeah impressive from Rocky Llegs!!!
~~
Lleyton`s next match will likely be much tougher<> Acacuso... then if he survives that he`ll surely lose to Ferrer in Rd.3

anyway this match practice is good because he needs to get back into the groove for Queens & the big one @ WIMBY

It's surprising to see Hewitt win at all, I'm surprised he hasn't retired, when was the last time he won a title or even reached a final?

5 March 2007 Las Vegas, USA

Hewitt has won at least a title for 10 years in a row. However, I feel as though this year is Hewitt isn't gonna continue that streak.

...Hewitt actually played pretty well in 2007:

Won Las Vegas [last title was 14 months ago]
SF Hamburg TMS [lost close one to Nadal]
SF Cincinatti TMS [lost close one to Federer]
QF Canada TMS [lost to Federer]
Rd.4 FO [lost to Nadal]
Rd.4 WIMBY [lost close one to Djokovic]

From what I could see in the little streaming video window, he played well and didn't seem to be hampered by the bad hip. Good luck in the next round, Lleyton!

he beat the worst clay courter of the top 50, someone who has now a 0-7 record at RG
probably another clay clown for him next, Mardy Fish

You're right, every player who doesn't win a title or reach a final in the last year should retire.

Well, that should certainly help scheduling at slams.

yeah i often get Acacuso & Calleri mixed up:devil:
~~either way it`ll be much tougher than Mahut:sad:
& Rd.3 with Ferrer he`ll surely lose

interesting matchup. Fish has beaten Hewitt in their last encounter.

of course Hewitt will be happier playing Fish [rather than Calleri] in Rd.2~~ that would indeed be a fortunate draw for Rocky Llegs.. *@@*.Cmon Mardy!

Hewitt should crush Fish [esp on clay] if he plays @ 70% of his game;)
the loss Llegs suffered @ Indian Wells <> Fish was playing the best tennis of his life & Hewitt was badly injured with the hip!

C'mon Hewitt!

Good performance, but was hardly ever in doubt against Mahut really.

Great win Lleyton, should be able to take out Mardy on the clay

Hewitt moved well during the points, I did think that I saw a few limps in between points though. Anyhow, he couldn't ask for a better workout than a straight sets win. Well done Rusty:)

Good win, he didn't play that bad as I expected after such a big pause (plus with an injury).

Mahut and Fish, ideal draw from somebody coming back from injury.
