    Will Goran the Great have anything left tomorrow against Hewitt? Goran played a five setter today, and he will be back tomorrow against the Australian Bulldog. I fear he will get blown off the court in his farewell match. What do you think? Will Goran's surgically repaired shoulder hold up? Will it even matter? Goran has never won a set of Lleyton on grass if you can believe that.

    One thing I do know is that I will be pulling hard for old Goran. Give us another thriller baby!

    Goran is so entertaining. After he won the match he was smiling in the direction of the camera holding his racquet one second, then turns around and his racquet flies into the crowd.

    Ya, that was great when he threw his racquet into the crowd. I think that Goran will take Hewitt to 4, but sadly will stop. THEN AGAIN, he could have a crazy serve day and win. Now wouldn't that just be picture perfect. Has he got his 600 match wins yet?

    He got to 600 yesterday. If Hewitt's serve is crappy as usual Goran has a chance. If Hewitt serves to-day like he served yesterday it will be very hard for Goran who's big weapon is running at half speed because of his shoulder problem. It's really amazing how a tournament, a court can affect player performance.

    Too far from the Blue Ridge
    If Goran returns well or can at least hold serve he definitely has a chance. His serve is so deceptive that on grass, even at 75%, it's quite effective. Goran has never won a set off Hewitt on grass because Hewitt came in on the downside of his career. Early to mid 90's would have been an entirely different story. I am living and dying by Goran in this tourney!
