Default Hewitt vs. Djokovic R16 - Does Hewitt stand a chance?

Absolutely no chance for Hewitt IMO.

He may win one tight set through fighting spirit alone but that's about it.

One thing is clear to me: the last set will be a complete beatdown.

Default Re: Hewitt vs. Djokovic R16 - Does Hewitt stand a chance?

Hewitt's victory spiced it up a bit, but I see no chance for him unless a Djokovic's complete mental meltdown will happen and there's no chance for that, as the guy is mentally rock solid after the last year

Nevertheless, the atmosphere will be extreme with the aussie crowd, after what happened in this match against Baghdatis

If Novak serves like he did so far in the tournament then Hewitt has NO chance. He'll win in 3...or possibly 4 sets.

Default Re: Hewitt vs. Djokovic R16 - Does Hewitt stand a chance?

Hewitt has a chance to make it competitive, even if he doesn't win. He has also enough time to recuperate so that physical conditioning doesn't become an issue. And honestly, he has been tested by one tough competitor. Djokovic hasn't.

The last few days' 5 setters have just about shown that everyone is fresh, everyone is hungry, and no one can predict who will take who to the woodshed. Who saw Janko coming within a whisker of beating Federer? Anything can happen.

I think Rusty only manages one set. I'd love to see Djokovic vs. Nalbandian.

Exactly. That's another Hewitt's chance, but he must start strong (something he doesn't do often unfortunately) and try to finish it as fastest as it's possible

Wouldn't you want to see Hewitt-Nalbandian?

Default Re: Hewitt vs. Djokovic R16 - Does Hewitt stand a chance?

hewitt's play has been so patchy especially since he is trying to incorporate a more aggressive attitude.

If hewitt at 5-1 in the 4th set shows up, djoker will kill him easily.

if its hewitt at the end of the third set or end of the 5th set, i could see 4 or 5 sets.

hewitt isnt as mentally tough as he used to be and djoker is brimming with confidence. The odds are in noles favor for sure.

It has definately been shown that anything can happen at this AO but Hewitt will have to play his best and be at his peak mental toughness to grind out a win against Djoko. That said, I expect Djoko to win in four.

Default Re: Hewitt vs. Djokovic R16 - Does Hewitt stand a chance?

I expect a similar match to the one at wimbledon last year...Djokovic dominated it, but Hewitt grinded it out and came pretty darn close...He seems really motivated and dedicated at AO this year, so I give him an even bigger edge prolly....Cant judge Djoko's form, he has had minor opponent till now.

Hard to tell with Hewitt in the Aus Open. No one said he was beating Baggy either.
