    Hewitt serving to avoid the bagel at 0-5 down.

    Hewitt hasnt looked the same since losing the 3rd set but Simon deff upped his game and is playing alot better, i hope he avoids the bagel tho... we'll see.

    He can play well aside of when he faces Nadal and then mentally he disappears.

    For being French, I can't help noticing the absence of wine, baguettes and cigarettes in the crowd.

    Regular as clockwork for Simon, Chokes a service game away and Hewitt breaks 5-2.

    One should never, ever, write Hewitt off. That guy never gives up.

    As much as i want to agree with you, that service game had nothing to do with Hewitt, Simon choked and put 2 balls wide that he's been hitting in for the last 2 sets. I really do want Hewitt to come back into this but i dont see it happening.

    Simon just trying to grind the points out of Hewitt, without going for too much.

    Hewitt with some major luck.

    5-0 to 5-3, and the crowd are complaining with the netcords going Lleyton's way.

    5-3 to Simon.

    This service game from Simon is going to be EXTREMELY Tense.

    Hewitt taking Simon to five at his age shows exactly how "weak" Fed area was (translation: how pathetic Nadal/Sampras fans are)

    What is it about Hewitt? No matter who he's playing, where he's playing, he always brings the best out of anyone he's playing and its always an entertaining match.

    5-5.

    If Simon loses this match, biggest choke of the year? I think so.

    I think Federer has converted on all BP's he's had. That's a refreshing change from the norm.

    In general? No. In this match? Probably, Fed's match has been a borefest due to his meh opponent.
