    Kills me. Seems like so many of his matches are like this now.

    First set - practically breadsticks the guy in 10 minutes.

    Second (and or third) set - INTERMINABLE TORTURE, lol.

    Anyone remember 1R AO? I practically held my breath the whole time.

    I know.

    I'm sitting here supporting him, aren't I? :)

    (If you look at my comment history, you'll know I'm not exactly the one here most impatient with his progress. I've been following his healing and progress in interviews. I was just describing how I felt. Don't jump on me, please. :neutral: )

    LOL. You're kind of awesome. :D

    Lleyton gritted out that victory. I hope he's worn out, lol. Otherwise we could be in for a tough three-setter.

    i'm with you on that one. remember it well ...

    did you hear the post match interview? he acknowledged, according to my paraphrase, that it's a struggle every day, trying to come back to the Tour after a year off ....... said he's happy he's improving "day by day" ... and about meeting hewitt next, he said he'll do his best to beat him

    i know, kinda expected, but tho hewitt had a tuff time of it today, I'm guessing he'll be pumped that he won, plus he'll be looking for revenge for losing to delpo the last time they met when delpo won the tournament in Washington 2009, trying to forget that and remember instead earlier that year when hewitt beat delpo on the grass of wimby

    it'll be another challenging match for Del, but I think he can win on the indoor hard (hope hope hope)

    Delpo is definitely Not hitting the ball as hard as he normally does...

    If he wins this tournament I think he'll rise to around #170.
