well Agassi definitely can do it. this should be a hard-fought battle b/c both players are so determined and are really ferocious fighters! their returns have been on all week so i expect many breaks of serve. but i give the edge to Lleyton! in 3 sets!
Lleyton will have to serve a helluva lot better than he did against Nieminen. I think his first serve percentage in that match was like 33 or something. If he pulls that again, Double Head has a pretty good shot.
Having said that, I like Lleyton will come out sharp from the get-go and win. And then (assuming the Drama Queen wins) he'll spank RodPrick in the semis.
i hope you're right irma. it's beginning to seriously annoy me the way the Potato seems so fricking invincible. and all he does is return the ball. nothing fancy, nothing creative. he's just really fast on his feet and he gets the ball back, forcing you to play another and another and another. unbelievable!
Yes, that is plan A for him... although what makes him so tough to play against is that he can also turn defence into offence and actually step up and hit winners once he's managed to outmaneouvre his opponent in a rally. What's really let him down ever since last year's Wimbledon is his frequently laughable serve, the low percentages of which have allowed the opposition to get a foothold in his every service game.
I think a poll goes back to the top whenever somebody casts a vote, even if there isn't a new post. Looks as if a poster decided to cast a vote now, almost a year after the match took place, and it's bumped up the thread to the top. I'm not sure why this forum works like that anyway, since it's different on wtaworld.
Well, it was still a very good point so I'm glad you answered it
Hewitt has had some losses this year that seem very "unlike him", as far as the past goes: the French Open match against Robredo for example. Robredo played very well but I can't remember Hewitt ever blowing such a huge lead before.
