2001 US Open conqueror Lleyton Hewitt is in the twilight of his career and is enjoying every bit of his time on the ATP Tour. And, even though the Australian has very much fallen off the map in recent times he still remains a popular figure among the fans. But, later this afternoon he could see the tennis enthusiasts going against him as he will be up against the man the American public has grown to love over the years – Brian Baker.
Moreover, the former World No.1 hasn’t played that much tennis on the hard courts since progressing through to the final of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships where he was beaten by the Frenchman Nicolas Mahut. After that loss, he has participated in only two events – Atlanta and Washington and in those competitions he accomplished a mixed bag of results – while in Atlanta he made it through to the semi-finals, in the US Capital he was knocked out in the first round itself by rising Ryan Harrison.
Meanwhile, his challenger Brian Baker is greatly admired for the manner he has fought his way through multiple injuries to be back on the men’s circuit. The Nashville resident made a wonderful return to the Tour last year, but then suffered yet another injury (meniscus tear) during the Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific at the start of the season to force him out of action for more than six months. He made his comeback earlier this month and in his first tournament after the layoff at the Aptos Challenger he got through the second round before repeating his performance at the Cincinnati Masters a week before the Open.
This showdown would be the first for both players against one another and it is really hard to make any kind of prediction regarding the winner of the contest. The outcome of the match would come down to the physical fitness levels of the two, and the one who could conserve energy on the court by shortening the points on serve should get through this one.
