If he wants to win. Vs. Djokovic on Monday. Ouch. That's alot of tennis. How the he11 do they push him that far? Didn't he play his last match before Agassi played Bag?

Ah well, at least maybe this means he really will be on Arthur Ashe and perhaps... it will be a night match? Or are Nadal, Fed, Roddick going to play two days in a row?

The ones that are screwed are Safin/Nalbandian and Rochus/Sweeting, they will be playing 2R tomorrow when they should be playing 3R tomorrow.

Yeah, you're right. I just read that off the Aussie Yahoo Sports page, so obviously they only pointed out Hewitt's misfortunes.

don't worry he won't have to play 5 matches, quiet possibly only 1 more match and then he can go back to his family :wavey:

My dream is for him to beat Agassi.

Agassi has to beat both Becker and Roddick... 50% probability IMO.

Hewitt has to beat Djoko and then Gasquet... 40% probability IMO.

Which make the probability of a Agassi/Hewiit matchup 20%, and which makes the probability of me seeing Hewitt defeat Agassi 10%... And then, ofcourse, there's the home-court advantage factor, which reduces the probability to about 8%, imo.

8% chance of my dream becoming reality.

5 matches in 8 days--big deal. I don't feel too sorry for these professional athletes who are getting paid quite well to play on consecutive days.

The guy who Most loses is Marat - unfortunately. Stuck w/bad draw 'cuz of ranking & bad knees... :( But Hewitt's tendinitis won't help him much either...

It's a win-win situation.
He could keep winning, and do well...
He could lose, and would have an excuse to dodge Argentina.

Woe is Lleyton.

I think Hewitt might actually get murdered while in Argentina. That would be unfortunate, as he is my favorite player.

Hewitt has an annoying squeal everytime he serves so as an Agassi fan I'm very much praying I don't have to hear that. Although he would be a lot easier than Nadal.

And Agassi blows his nose. I am sure his opponents love walking around knowing that Agassi's snot is somewhere under their feet.

Also, I agree that Nadal would be far far far tougher than Hewitt, but I believe Hewitt would come before Nadal. Nadal would only meet Agassi in the semis, were Andre to make it there.

The US Open is turning into a fitness contest rather than a tennis contest.

In that case, Marat is thoroughly screwed. :tape:

:shrug: It's the same for a lot of players. Unfortunate, but nobody can help it. At least they gave the 2nd round matches priority today. :tape:

Scenario 1: MTF complaints about there being no roof over Ashe.

Response: USTA spend $80-100 million to build roof over Ashe (although it's more likely that they would spend $30-40 million for a roof over Armstrong -- per Matt Cronin)

Scenario 2: MTF complaints about only American players being scheduled on the roofed stadium, no players from [insert your nationality here]

Response: :banghead:

Oh, wait, Hewitt is playing today...

What I was saying originally was that I thought he was playing on Monday, not today...

A lot will depend on the luck players have with the draw and how their oppponents play. Andy Murray was a major beneficiary the other day playing Di Mauro who only won 2 games. When you have to play on successive days opponents who play that awfully are dream opponents.

Dammit, now I won't get to see Hewitt whoop up on A.A. I guess it'll have to be Richard or whoever Richard is playing.

Hewitt did not expend much energy on this match with Djokovic.
