He sure does handle the wind better than anyone almost :) His last real windy one was when he schooled Haas in the QF last year

maybe thats what he needs to beat Fed...some extreme wind lol

Great first up win Lleyton!!

Props Lleyton! C'MON!... He was a clear favourite of course, but still a very dominant scoreline and no surprise the wind didn't make him lose this match either because he normally handles it very well.

:yeah: Lleyton. Kept everything under control and, as usual, nice footwork. Glad you got the match in today and in a very quick 80 minutes. Like BG said...a training run. Get ready for Round Two.

For Haas, such a wind like last yerr is the ultimate nightmare. He is using an extreme grip on his one-handed backhand and this allows only very low tolerence to hit the balls clean. After this match he said that he needs to aim close to the line in his shots because otherwise there will be nothing but long rallies and that means Hewitt is automatically winning it. And focusing the lines is a tough task with nasty wind like it was this day (even more if you are not so in the mood to play)

All very nice, but fact is that Hewitt and Agassi are the best wind players out there

err Rogi beat Agassi in a hurricane last year.
You're putting it the wrong way :)

It was Agassi who pushed Federer to five sets in windy conditions.
Maybe you haven't noticed it but Federer doesn't have to play a lot of five setters
