Even this looks pretty much like a choke, Lleyton has the game to trouble DelPo, we've seen it before.
So even if DelPo wins this set, we will still have competitive tennis I believe.

Lleyton repeating his Newport performance. Crapped himself and couldn't serve out. Apparently, Delpo is injured (wrist) again. Regardless of who wins this match, an injury means Delpo is not a contender.

Anderson got punk'd by Baghdatis!!! 2, 2 & 2  :scared:

Stan is through in straights over Karlovic.

Hewitt beat Delpo in Queens this year and Wimbly in 2009.

That's nice, but this has Mahut def. Hewitt 2013 Newport written all over it.

Hewitt out to a fast start, then...

What do you guys think? Is Hewitt in this match or is he unable to close at the business end of the set?

Hmmm an upset is still unlikely but Lleyton is making it competitive.

I wonder why Hewitt isn't going after Delpo's BH? Seems DP would rather slice then rip one.

Hewitt is a fool. I don't get why he keeps going to DP's FH.

Throwback. Just 5'9" but you'll enjoy watching him.

Yeah I'm glad he's making his run here. Gonna watch his match vs Robredo definitely now.
Hope England can turn eyes on him, they are a bit sidelined ever since Henman retired if you know what I mean  :))

you are right. I said the same thing earlier. He should be pounding DP's BH as often as possible.

Seconded.
I remember Haas doing the same mistake vs DelPo.
If he beats Youzhny, Tommy will have the best chance ever to beat DelPo if we count out that unfortunate last meeting where Tommy lost a won match.
But Hewitt - Haas would be much better. Last encounter was all the way back to 2004, ahhh memories.

I'm watching the Hewitt match. (on a 'regular' tv) :yuk:  Hubby and I are in Hot Springs to celebrate our Anniversary on Monday, and the place we're staying in doesn't have HD!!!!!!  Glad I brought my computer with me!

Great win for Stan!  Hewitt put up a fight in the first set and like Scott said, he CHOKED the 2nd set away.  Now it looks like it may be over soon.

I see Murray lost a set, but still came through pretty good.  What's up with Baggy??? He seems to be playing pretty well.
