Hewitt won just two further points than Nadal, who had a massive advantage on the court in sets two and three. The Spaniard was motivated to show his stylish tennis in the deepest run at Majors up to that point. In the end, Lleyton survived all the fourth set’s challenges to secure it in the tiebreak and leave the youth with nothing left in the tank in the decider.

The home fave used that instigation to race through a decider and avoid an early loss. Nadal praised the opponent and his performance, mentioning those chances in the fourth set and hoping for further good results in the rest of the season.

” I don’t suppose I ran out of gas in the fourth set; that happen in the fifth when I plodded with cramps. I had my chances in the fourth set, standing at 30- 15 on the return several times. I didn’t play poorly in the pivotal moments, but Lleyton was better than me; that is why he won.

I was close to the finish line in the fourth, and formerly I missed that, there was no way for me to come back in the fifth, especially after Lleyton’s good launch. I couldn’t do anything after that. His experience made the difference, playing numerous matches like this ahead.

Still, I am happy with how I performed, staying in touch with worldno. 3 for four sets and having chances to beat him. I can achieve some big effects this time if I maintain this position. Lleyton and I aren’t that analogous; I suppose I am attacking more, while he has much better serve,” Rafael Nadal said.
