Hewitt triumphs over negativity!!!

SORRY JAMES but after that guy screamed that Lleyton was a racist I could not go against Lleyton.

LLEYTON HAS THE HEART OF A TRUE CHAMPION and he proved the haters wrong!!!!!!

well done Hewitt, it is a very diffcult match and you got through you shows you are a true champion, how classy are both players when they have that little talk towards the end

I hope Lleydon go all the way, he is truly the champion out there today

James and Lleyton are great players and sports and don't hate each other but the press and the crowd especially want someone to crucify. Lleyton showed their asses!!!

VSFan,

sorry but what that guy said to Lleyton was cruel. The inability to forgive and the desire to crucify Lleyton is much uglier than Lleyton's UNCLASSY actions in the heat of the battle. The fact is that the linesman last year was being biased in his calls. (It's not a fact actually but a strong likelihood) Why was he doing that if he were not perhaps racist himself?

Lleyton ideally should have held it in but easier said than done when you feel that you have a chance to win your first Grand Slam and you feel that a person is ROBBING you of the match. Just like last night with Rusedski.

James never said that

Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Dont front Treufrend you weren't for James in the first place. It's not his James fault that Hewitt is viewed as a racist by some people. People scream out all type of things during matches, it's no big suprise someone said that considering what Hewitt did last year. Get over it!

James played his heart out, and gave the defending champion something to think about. Hewitt did a good job!

Good win for Hewitt! Congrats to Blake for a tough battle, and displaying class with defeat something a few players on the ATP need to learn.

I am one of the few to support Lleyton last year.....he felt like he was being discriminated against, and he stood up for himself. Applauds to him.

However, unless you were on the same spot as that linesman and know for a fact that he was blatantly miscalling foot faults, then you have absolutely zero right to say whether or not that linesman was being racist........that is called slander.

James just doesn't have the peeling qualities just yet, he's too on/off
and way too many UE's

there aren't many peelers left at all now

only Tommy Haas and Roger Federer will be able to Peel him but whether they make it that far is another story.

Good luck to my favs

I would report you to the moderators for calling me that but fuhgeddaboutit cuz you know that what Lleyton did was wrong but his side of the story does not get told. The linesman was wrong and that IS important.

I would have been for James Blake in the first place but it was important for Lleyton to prove the haters wrong. And yes there was HATE in that stadium.
