    I got a feeling Nalbandian is going to break at the beginning of the 5th, then Hewitt breaks back and wins the match

    Hewitt breaks, Nalbandian got tight there, that might be it for him...


    Saying that, I refuse to predict anything with this match, the momentum keeps shifting!

    Nalby made it tie-break safe for yourself
    Rasty on serve...
    4th set is up&down for both...
    What a game!

    Hewitt/Baghdatis a couple years ago had just started at this point and was almost 5 hours long :)
