I can't believe the guy did everything he could to leave such a great match. He should be ashamed. There are so many people who would so love to be at his place.

I think that's the first time I saw Hewitt hug his opponent at the net. Oh what a match, what a day. That was 4h 45 minutes long, by the way. I'm gutted about Baggy, though.

Definately the first time I've seen it. I didn't want either of them to lose, was a bit sad to see it end.

these past few matches have been so great, I nearly forgot about how bad ESPN2 coverage had been :D
 
Just reiterating the general point that that was an amazing match...

And I wish I could hang around to watch that Fed match replay, since this would be a perfect way to spend the first eight hours of my day.

Someone should give Bags a medal. His courage is phenomenal. I hope he didn't do any permanent damage to that ankle. He is going to be in bad shape tomorrow, I fear.

But, props to Hewitt for also showing enormous heart.

Great match, for sure.

How close to the record is this match? I'm guessing it's about number 5 or so on the list of longest GS matches.

What's John Lloyds problem???

Hey,
to anybody that watched the match today on bbc i what was John Lloyds problem with Marcos Bagdhatis??? The moaning old sod was practically moaning that Marcos decided to go for his shots and enjoy the game.

this was a very good match. I liked that baghdatis came back in the 4t set after being down 5-1 and how he saved 4 match points. Good job ESPN for not having any ads.

Is it just me...
Or did that last alleged return winner from Hewitt look about an inch long and MAYBE caught the back half of the line???
I thought it was unbelievable that Baghdatis didn't even challenge the call...
What a cop out...
Quite the anti-climax there....
