    Though Simon has a break, the killing continues.

    Hewitt is always one of those 50/50 players now, i know rank wise he's not anywhere near the top players but im sure most dread meeting him in the first round, he always manages to play some decent tennis.

    What a win this would be for Hewitt.

    I have a feeling he has to win the 4th set if he wants to win the match. This goes 5 and I fear the worst.

    Suprised Hewitt let that one go without a challange, i thought he clipped the line and it was for BP. His head just went straight down and walked to his chair, has the effort left him?

    Simon breaks hewitt to love and now leads 3-0 in the 4th set, i hate to say it but i think this is over. Hewitt at least pushed simon to 5sets but at the end of the day, the king of the pushers will never be out-pushed.

    Some good grinding going on there in the Hewitt-Simon match. Hard to tell who's gonna win a fifht, Simon will probably have the fresher legs, but the french are famous for choking at RG..

    LHewitt's choking is almost as bad as RFederer's choking in US Open 2010 and 2011. :p

    If Hewitt can hold his serve for the rest of this set and just lose it 6-2 and maybe get a few nice points on Simon's serve then he can maybe give him something to think about, playing in front of his home crowd, the seeded player who is expected to win. Hewitt can just play free and maybe snatch it in the 5th.

    You don't know how jealous of you I am right now.

    My current job doesn't really allow for either.

    Despite it almost going into a fifth set, Hewitt and Simon are playing at a very quick pace.

    So it is about 6-7 meters from the baseline to the back stop. How many of those meters will Nadal utilize against Brands on the return?

    He will make his way further down with each match.....expect Nadal to be at Court 14 in the final.

    Nice backhand there from Carreno-Busta. Though, he's just delaying the inevitable.

    Federer now facing break points when serving for the first set. He must have glanced at the words "ESP" on the scoreboard and forgotten who he was playing for a moment.

    1-3-0 will call this the biggest choke since JNovotna against SGraf and then add a million tongues.

    It's baffling, hilarious and disappointing how Fed can't even serve out the first set of a first round match.

    Looks like another bad loss for Hewitt.Played so well for 2 sets and after that it`s been a struggle.Looks like the best of 5 format is too much for Hewitt at this stage of his career,especially on clay.

    Fed, other than one unfocused game, looks pretty sharp so far, if a bit bored.
