Lleyton Hewitt


THE MODERATOR: Questions for Lleyton, please.

Q. Damn good tennis out there.

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, it was good. Jan-Michael always starts well, I found, in the past. I felt like I haven't had too many chances to break him real early in matches in the past. I tried to get off to a good start. I was able to break first up. He just played incredible tennis the whole first set. 5-1, he was just slapping balls around left, right, and center. Everything was going two inches inside every line. I just told myself, you know, "You're No. 1 in the world. If you can do this..." Obviously, you don't want to (inaudible) yourself the whole match. I actually thought I wasn't playing too bad. I just hung in there like I always did. In the end it paid off.

Q. Had he shown you that one -handed forehand?

LLEYTON HEWITT: He's getting better and better every time I see him with it. Tonight was obviously the best I've seen him hit it. He hit it well return-wise. When he was stretched out trying to make a pass, he hit it well. You know, it's probably been a little bit of a weakness in the past, I think, playing some guys when they've got him out wide. Now on, I don't think so much.

Q. You get another American in the next round now.


Q. You haven't played him?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, twice.

Q. Okay.

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I haven't even thought about it yet though. But, you know, he's playing great. You know, he's getting better and better every time I see him. So, you know, I'm going to have to play just as well as I did tonight if I'm going to get through.
