He's like when you were a kid and hitting up against a wall. There were are no winners, it just keeps coming back. His nickname should be the wall with eyes.

So this is why play was delayed for a few minutes.

Murray squares things up with the Joker - one set a piece.

Oh, and Murray's missus is still bangin'.

Onto the third set.

I'd like to thank Lleyton. At about 3-3 in the 3rd set he started talking about how mentally strong Murray is and keeps himself composed.

Murray then went on to shout obscenities into a towel about 45 seconds later which he lleyton said was "Letting out all the frustration before moving on"

That was an odd comment - Novak (as you probably know) is usually always a cucumber - besides a few health issues tonight, that's all he's been.

Hewitt's talk of Novak looking more flustered than Murray after long points was odd - granted I'm not commentating from a ground level centre court box, but a camera pointed directly at Novak coming through a 65 inch screen gives me, I would have thought, a pretty good idea.

Long live Hewitt! I only support him because I know how much he enrages Lucy, The Nickman, Pigman and all the others. Hewitt is the best!

Engrages? the only people who get enraged are the Hewitt fans who lose their **** **** when ever people point out what a little **** he is.
I personally hope he never retires, betting against him is literally Free Money

You're welcome! And in two markets, too!
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I couldn't give a flying **** about his on-court antics.

Plenty of footballers do a heck of a lot worse, week in, week out, on and off the field.

Hope he wins the tournament. Has all the talent in the world.

Sad to see Hewy bow out, but as expected, he fought it to 5 sets. Legend and a champion. Fingers crossed he can win a couple of Aussie open games

The guy who worships at the alter of Lleyton Hewitt doesn't care that Kyrgios is turning into an absolute **** **** RIGHT. IN. FRONT. OF. U.S?


IFAMIYWMS.

On a personal note, I too am disappointed to see Hewitt bow out. It's sad to think ill never be able to spite bet him at Wimbledon again :(
It's been an amazing run though, and what better way to end then a 5 set loss to a $2.30 outsider?

Ah Hewitt.. Wimbledon, U.S. open, number one at 20, two masters cups, best ever Davis cup member.

It'll be a long time until we get an Aussie matching that performance, Nicko!

And to think, he achieved it all while behaving like a pig! Legend!

COME ON!!!!!!!!

These new blokes, Tomic, nick, a lot to learn from the Hewitt school of swinery. They don't even compare.

I just don't see how it's any different to the far more pathetic behaviors that footy players engage in.

Difference is they aren't playing for a club, they're essentially playing for themselves and each individual is in the spot light.

Hewitt has overwhelming support from the majority of Australians who follow tennis. Enormous respect for the amount of heart he plays with :clap:

Poor little Pigmam offended by on court antics, in the heat of the battle. Welcome to Sport
