Next match is against Federer :(
He will bash him :lol:

Federer managed to reach final 16 times out of 20 grand slams within last 5 years and won 11 of them. Who do you think challenge him? Little Hewitt? :lol:

Keep dreaming :zz:
Just wait and see :cool:
Oh Icy :lol:

Roger Federer vs Lleyton Hewitt (6-2), (6-3), (6-4)

Well, with the way Federer played today it was just not possible for Lleyton to win against him. I prefered a Hewitt victory, because he's the hero of Australia and it's his favorite tournament too. But like the commentators said Roger was ''on fire''.
Anyway, these two players are my favorites and I'm happy to see Fed in quarters. Now, a very big match against Nikolay Davydenko

Federer was on another planet. Another galaxy per se. Just unbelievable. I guess (and hope) he will make the cut this year and will do a Grand-Slam.

lleyton is already past his prime....although if he can change his game big time and add more arsenal, depth and technique in his game ala andre agassi then i think he has a shout against the big boys of current. other than that, then it's nil for him.

He sure did, he was brilliant. He has only Cilic between him and the final, this might be the one.

nadal still having knee problems.......not much of a good sign for him

i saw this comment from a fan from the official site of the australian open;
Rafa, believe it or not , is a 'has been'. He 'Would fight to the end' 1-2 years ago as everyone feared him (he was unbeatable). Now he realizes he is 'beatable' and hence he has decided to 'retire'. Rafa without doubt is in the history books and is a great great player, but he no longer is feared by the tour and the likes of Murray, Davydenko, Tsonga, Verdasco, Roddick and of course Federer .... The p'psych-out' he once had is ano longer there and unfortunately his style of tennis is no longer sustainable. I wish him the quickest of recoveries, but also can not go without saying that this year may be his last at the top level....
:blink: i doubt nadal is a 'has been' ...... he's just, plain and simple - injured. although his knee injury maybe caused by poor footwork in his part - although i'm not sure. but most of the time, poor footwork really do cause knee and ankle injuries esp. in a sport like tennis.

He (Fedex) trashed Tsonga today and went on to the final. He's in an immense form. I doubt Murray will survive. But still, it's good match in prospect.
