Two questionable calls on Carlos serves... Moya is hitting some very good inside-out shots that are driving Hewitt nuts. Moya moving very well, but Hewitt comes with a awesome passing shot to 30-40. Very good serve to save the breakpoint. Ace to get the adv. Hewitt lucky again with that damned tape. deuce. long fh by Moya and BP for the Potato again. Bad return and deuce again. Another bad return and he definitely loses his patience. Moya hungry for the win, hitting a winner with a fh down the line.

Moya, Reborn in 2002
By Richard Evans - Tennis Radio Network
Carlos Moya's stunning 7-5, 7-6 victory over Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in the rain interrupted final of the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters has resurrected the tall Spaniard's career.
Moya might have won three smaller titles on clay in Europe this year, but his second Tennis Masters Series title is an achievement of a different calibre -- especially as it consituted his first big victory on a hard court. Moya had come close before -- at the 1997 Australian Open where he made the final, and again in 1999 at Indian Wells where he lost to Mark Philippoussis in the final. That was the week the man from Mallorca became No. 1 in the world, but it was a short lived reign becuase his back injury became progressively worse and he was soon spiralling down the rankings.
It has been a long, hard road back but Moya's talent has never been in question. Hewitt was under no illusions at the start of the match because Moya had beaten him twice in straight sets at Tennis Masters Series events in Monte Carlo and Rome this year. But the manner in which Moya recovered from a double break 2-5 deficit in the second set stunned the fiesty little Australian, who could not come up with enough first serves to prevent Moya sealing a memorable victory -- one that will serve notice to the rest of the tour that this popular figure is now a serious threat once again.
