    I just can't wait for the punk to lose in the 4th round again in Melbourne.

    "It was a little disappointing to lose the first set in a tiebreaker when I felt like I was the better player," Hewitt said. "It was one of those awkward matches. I didn't get enough of the racket tonight because I think the air was cold and it was heavy conditions and it probably suited him a little bit more."

    "When you've been No. 1 in the world for a couple of years and won a couple of Slams ... you look at the big picture and what motivates you," Hewitt said. "And that's the Grand Slams and Melbourne's as big for me as any of the four.

    I agree with Steve. He can feel better but still lose.

    Heavier condition suits serve and volleyer Dent more? He has been losing his sense lately.

    Lleyton's game is Taylor-made for Dent under those conditions, eh?

    I think there's a Dent in Hewitt's ego, eh?

    Lleyton, Don't push it. Don't push it or I'll give you a match you won't believe. Let it go. Let it go.

    He's still getting over being dumped by Kim and he's over-compensating, poor boy. Yes, I know he's with Cartwright. Rebound Ace syndrome?

    Yeah Lleyton's on the rebound, and on the rebound ace too.

    BTW, I'm with david aames on this one. I don't like Hewitt, and I'm Australian. I don't think he'll win at the AO, and he proabably won't go too close (probably go out in the quarters or so).

    Hewitt doesn't normally say things like that. Serena normally does make excuses for losing so I think we should let Lleyton slide this time.

    Yeah, the surface doesn't suit him well - he likes faster, lower-bouncing courts, not high-bouncing slow stuff. And the AO rebound ace has a pretty high bounce.
