Tough loss Hewitt.

Suits to Hewitt's standards in last couple of years. He has lost 6 out of last 7 matches when deciding set came to 5:5.

i.e. He's a choker.

Impressive stuff by Youzhny though. Some of those backhands :worship:

Misha is a confidence player. I hope this means greater and bigger things for the rest of the year and also 2010.

Well he'll struggle to finish 2009 outside the top 32...so a very good chance that he will be seeded for the Australian Open. This could be a very good catalyst for him going into 2010, especially as he doesn't defend many points over the first few months. If he is going to get back into top 15-20, the next 6 months is the time to do it. :yeah:

Extremely awful display from Hewitt in the first set. It went so quickly and Youzhny did not had to put any work in that, Hewitt forehand was completely non-existent, without much exaggeration the only one he managed to get across the net went long. A bit better in the second set, but colonel also lifted his game and in the start of the second set the things looked very bright for him. But Aussie found some range in the latter stages of the set and took it. The third was more or less a toss up, could have gone any way, but the Russian had a little help from serving first which put a bit of pressure on Lleyton.
