    I think the title says it all, feel free to comment on that statement.

    Hewitt won't turn his career around. He could have a good tournament here and there, but that's it. His past success relied too much on his reflexes and speed; and he's slowed over the years.

    If Hewitt beats Davydenko, Davy will probably drop to no. 4 in the rankings so he will be on Federer´s half of the draw in the FO while Roddick will be on Nadal´s half so...come on Lleyton! :D

    Well Hewitt is leading the match ;)

    P.S: This is in the Pro Match results section so results can be posted I guess.

    yea...i realize he is past his prime. but maybe he just hasn't had the confidence he had once. I'm just saying that a win over davydenko could boost his confidence and his tennis game (even thought it won't get to where it was)

    Not so on the #3 and #4 seed they can float between either top or bottom. I wish the seeds held like they should but the 3 can be on top or botom then 4 seed will be in opposite half.

    Are you sure of that? I thought from 1 to 4 they are on the half of the draw where they belong: 1-4 and 2-3.

    If Hewitt wins, maybe, it could mean something... like, maybe, it could just mean Davydenko was tired from having to play two times in one day...

    when players play 2 matches in 1 day, how much time between matches do they have to rest? they don't literally play back to back matches do they? just wondering!

    Don't know the exact rule, but it seems they get at least an hour between matches, usually more like two hours in actual practice (that I've seen). Same when playing doubles and singles. They almost always get an hour between.

    Last year in the French Semis Fed (1) played Nalby (3) and Rafa (2) played Ljuby (4). I don't know how often this happens, but it happens.
