Game, Set, and Match: Lleyton Hewitt 7-5; 6-2 (FH Winner)

Hewitt frustrated Haas with his speed and fluid baseline game. Haas made too many errors, and fell apart after failing to win the first set. Hey Lleyki, you should tell me what Lleyton's special shot is (not forehand, backhand, Serve, Return, etc., but something unique to him). That is what I eventually use instead of overheads.

Marat got REALLY mad that he lost the second set, so he just stepped up his game to a level never seen before and came up with 90% first serves and 9 aces in the third set. He is just too good right now. Sorry people.

Never mind that Safin ALMOST broke Hewitt Right back in the second, but it just rolled over. Oh well, SOMEONE got a set off him.
