3 hours and Hrbaty could have gone another 3 hours, good entertaining stuff for an exho.

The atmosphere and the players' intensity felt more like Davis Cup stuff than Hopman.

A win is a win. Just trying to get rid of the rust.

I wanna see a thriller :devil:

Good stuff Lleyton, can't wait to see you take on James on Thursday :)

Thought he'd do it in two but this is still a great win in my view! Good effort from both :) Well done Lleyton!! :D

hewitt and hrbarty always seem to have these epic matches, hewitt always comes on top though

Sounds like a good match. To bad Australia will lose the mixed.

01-06-2009, 02:38 PM
I wouldn't say Hewitt was back or anything.

perfect match from both sides....... Hrbaty was 2-4 in 2nd set.... and came back.....

Very happy that Hrbaty looks back ! :clap2:

After beating Blake, nearly beating Hewitt,

it's big improvement comparing to last year when he was talking about retiring !

Solid and entertaining match. There were some great rallies, a lot of emotion from both of 'em so it was fun to watch. Ugh, Casey's let herself and Lleyton down so far though.

01-06-2009, 08:49 PM
Well done Lleyton :D

Good win...another match that he needs for match practice, but really i dont know anyone quite as good as Hewitt in terms of the ability to be broken serving for the match....grrr

When Hewitt puts on the green and gold, so to speak, he usual rises to the occasion. Good win, Lleyton.

Probably not a bad thing he dropped that second set, got more time on court
