Default Hewitt takes out Ivanisevic 6-2 6-3 6-4

From Eurosport: Goran Ivanisevic bowed out of men's professional tennis on Friday after a 6-2 6-3 6-4 defeat by Australian Lleyton Hewitt in the third round at Wimbledon. Bidding farewell on the same Centre Court where he won the Wimbledon crown in 2001, the 32-year-old Croatian had no answer to seventh-seed Hewitt's dynamism in a one-sided encounter

--------

Why is it that all the matches I so look forward to end up being one-sided maulings? *sigh*

Well, Goran did not play much in the past year, and his body is fragile.So, I kind of expected those result

Very nicely done, Lleyton! It's almost funny to write this, but damn, Goran just couldn't handle Lleyton's big serve! And Lleyton was very classy at the net with Goran.

Congratulations on a great career, Goran, and keep us entertained somehow in the future.

It's sad to see Goran leave, he's so great to watch on a court, always in for a joke. And today with his Croatian shirt after his loss Great guy, fare well Goran!

Part of Lleyton's post-match interview:

Q. How is that as an occasion, apart from the fact you won in straight sets, but Goran's last match?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, it's a weird feeling, I guess, walking out onto Centre Court knowing that if you win against one of the probably the most likable guys out there on the tour. Obviously, he's got the crowd support and that. It sort of puts an end to his career. You know how much Wimbledon means to him, as well.

So it's an awkward situation, but, you know, I think I blocked it out as well as I could going out there today and just figuring that, you know, I've got an opportunity to get myself into the second week here at Wimbledon. That was my mindset right from the word go.

Q. What was the exchange at the net afterwards? What did you say to each other?

LLEYTON HEWITT: No, I think he said something like, "You killed me out there today," or something. You know, I just said, you know, "You're a great champion. It's been an honor playing against you out here on Centre Court."

Q. When the match ended, were you watching him at all?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Well, I was watching ‑‑ I more wanted him to have, you know, a walk off the court last. You know, for the crowd, his last time out there on Centre Court obviously, for the crowd really to embrace him as such a great champion that he's been out there.

I was more trying to get out of his way more than anything.
