Look, leyton hewitt is giving WAY TOO MUCH RESPECT to Roge's speed and defense, going for SO MUCH on straightforward shots and missing by a lot. cannot be competitivelike this, must play like he is playing another very good player

Agassi is a good commentator! Get him in the booth. He saw the serve Hewitt was sending and he knew what Fed was going to do with it.

mishar
09-10-2005, 08:56 PM
Roge had one right the next game and could have taken that. So, that would be neutralized

I'm not saying it would have made a difference in the end. Only that Roger started a little shaky and Lleyton could have gotten off to a better start, it might have helped him

Instead it's 4-1 Roger and I'm sure Lleyton is already a bit demoralized, questioning what he can do.

What can he do? If he just plays defensive, he's fucked, but he can't sustain this level of aggression without errors.

George_Hanson

will Rusty ever be a threat to Alien ?

R.Federer
09-10-2005, 08:59 PM
leyton does seem nervous, but Roge is not on the top of his game yet. Maybe they can make this match a little more interesting by settling down a little bit. I bet they're both frightfully nervous underneath

this match is boring. It seems as if Federer is resigned to play in auto-pilot as if waiting for Hewitt to play extraordinary or only when he is pressured. It's not interesting so far.

R.Federer
09-10-2005, 09:04 PM
anyone watching the match? how they looking?


To be honest, not high quality yet. But ginepri match also took time to get on

leyton has had his chances. He is giving a TON of respect to Roge's speed and defense, going for too much even with the wide open court. he has the look of a man waiting for dentist appointment with drilling.

Roge 5-2, leyton to serve

R.Federer
09-10-2005, 09:06 PM
Now Roge must serve it out himself to win set 1

its hard to get excited about a match when the outcome feels so inevitable. who here thinks that Hewitt will take a set from Fed

asotgod
09-10-2005, 09:12 PM
Yeah. Federer is just on auto-pilot. Too much cruising as if daring Hewitt to do something he has not seen before. Hewitt's strategy so far has been to play hard and flat to Federer's backhand, take the second serve returns early and re-directed to the Federer forehand just to keep him guessing but nothing outstanding from both players yet.

R.Federer
09-10-2005, 09:12 PM
They must increase their intensity and quality. this is not comparing good to previous match.
Isolated "come on lai-tun" aussie posse shouts, but very lethargic crowd in general. Claps politely sometimes. All of them seem like they know what is going to happen and just waiting it out because of expensive tickets they buy?

0-40
Allez Roge!

Mechlan

The quality seems low because Lleyton is going for a lot more than he usually does, so Federer is winning the points on Hewitt's errors rather than his winners.

George_Hanson
09-10-2005, 09:13 PM

Come on, though.... I dont think John McEnroe has guts to make up something so inflammatory if it is complete untrue and set himself up for suing by leyton

There have been rumours many years about leyton's father and his interference. No one is sure completely, but we hear he is very demanding

Only thing you can say that it's already a better match then the USO final last year.

In terms of quality no way, maybe because Roger is not playing at the level he did in the final. Lleyton is fighting but I have said it for sometime, there is something wrong with Hewitt. He is not the same player at all :sad:

Hewitt is absolutely retarded. All through-out his 5 set-points against Federer in the 2nd set, he kept hittting to his forehand - and I am not talking about close to the lines, either, but in Roger's wheelhouse.

Meanwhile, Fed's backhand is as bad as Agassi's today (outside of the tie-breaker, anyway).

What a waste. Game over.

I feel badly for leyton. it is very difficult to ordinarily come back from 2 sets down

But when you have had chances, 6 chances for set points and you cannot take and then lose set, it is very demoralizing. It is a pity.

And first point of his service games is 0-15. it is sad --all Roge fans must also agree to that. We would like some competition (I guess we got more than we expect in the 2nd set)

I don't care if Federer played bad in the 2° set, if he was lazy, irregular or anything else. Everything that he might have done wrong he undid magically in the set points against him and in the tiebreaks.
And 70% of Fed's bad play in the second set are due to Hewitt agressive game putting Roger in the defense, Hewitt played very, very well and due to this, didn't give Federer a chance to play well.

No, if it spins back over, he's allowed to go after it.

Actually, the rule is that the opponent's racquet cannot pass over the net until the ball bounces. It can go around the side though.

Yes this is correct
if you take the rule very seriously --i supposed they should-- then that point belongs to Roge
but this has happened in other matches during US Open and it is a call that is ignored, just like taking more than 20 seconds for service

bandabou

The thing is...on the IMPORTANT points he was just BRILLIANT...you think Andre could have done against those shots Roger hit to save those spīs and then to win the TB? Me says no.

Mechlan

Actually, the rule is that the opponent's racquet cannot pass over the net until the ball bounces. It can go around the side though.

If the opponent hits the ball with enough spin that it bounces and then spins back over, you can go after it across the net. I believe this question came up in one of Wertheim's articles a while ago.

Had Leyton won the 2nd as he should've, this match could have been something special.

Buty now, with Federer knowing he has SO much room for error, Leyton would have to play undogly tennis for 3 straight sets - for 3 more hours, basically.

Maybe next year. No go fuck Nicole Kidman since she knows all about your big dick and is available.

The point is, that the spin was created by the said player, and deserves the point as such. And Wertheim is Worthless.
