Didn't see the match but it was a break-fest. Hewitt's serving stats for this year must be the worst of his career. Not being able to push off properly has lowered what were already pretty low first serve percentages.

Zemlja next for Gilles.

Simon taking out the trash.

Time to retire Hewitt.

Anderson or Zeballos next for Gilles.

Žemlja is next.

A pusher trying to outplay a smarter, more effective pusher...impossible.

Simon is a nightmare for Hewitt to handle, especially in this day and age. Pretty much gets everything back until he wears him down.

Only cause Lleyton is an old crock.

Lleyton at his peak would eat guys like Simon for dinner.

Poor scoreline for Rusty. Looks like no lawnmowers today.

We have to take into account he was up against a master tactician.

Gilles barely lost games to Hewitt in their other two meetings in 2007 and 2009. I know he wasn't at his best then either, but Gilles does not have problems with players who have playing styles like Hewitt. Hewitt clearly is a much better player than Gilles at his best but I think he would have struggled against Gilles anyway.

I can see why this a tricky matchup for Lleyton but Simon hates playing players with no pace. Don't know how their matches are so one sided

Hewitt can't serve this year. but I don't think he's ever beat Simon, could be a match up issue. Still thought he'd win given Simon's form

Simon is all what Hewitt never was able to be

Simon is a tactician who can play competitive match vs Djoko, Rafa, Murray or Fedmug while Hewitt most of time look like weaponless loser

Simon >>> Hewitt

Strong Era >>> Weak Era

Simon smarter than Hewitt? GTFO.

Hewitt is arguably the smartest player on tour.

Simon is just a really bad matchup for Hewitt, given they both run down a lot of balls and put a lot of balls in play waiting for errors..and Simon is fresher than the bionic man at this point.
