    This was a Tuffy for the two experienced legends but whats more intersting is both behaviours from Roger and Lleytton... Well mostly Hewitt. He used to be sooo tense. It looks likes i watching safin! I never knew he had long hair strange.

    That must explain why Fed kept turning his head after every volley that went to Hewitt. I thought a pro should know better. Some points he got caught, after turning his head to look at Hewitt and then a volley came at him so fast he didn't react in time.

    It was good looking at the young Hewitt. He was so intense.

    Yea Fed turned Pro in 98 so at 99 he was 17...it just occured to me that Federer is only 8 years older me...i have friends his age makes him see so much younger

    As an aside, I just saw that Safin and Federer won a doubles title together a long time ago. Federer has teamed up with quite a number of players...I would have thought such combinations were quite odd, but...what do i know... :p

    Fed n Hewitt looked like they were having a good time...high-fiving, Hewitt even calling Fed's winners 'great shot!'...
