Second Serve


As I just mentioned, unseeded Lleyton Hewitt met against the 23rd seed Radek Stepanek in the fourth round of Wimbledon. In the beginning of the match, both players were fairly matched, but Hewitt ended up losing 4-6 in the first set. As Hewitt lost the second set with a score of 2-6, the audience started giving up on Hewitt, but Hewitt did not let the two set deficiency affect his performance. Instead of giving up, Hewitt came back with a lot more punch after the time out. He turned the match completely around and won with a three set comeback. Hewitt took the match with a final score of 4-6, 2-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2! He totally shut Stepanek down in the last three sets. The racquet he has been using throughout Wimbledon has been the new Yonex RDiS 100. The racquet comes in at 93 sq in providing the stability and flexibility advanced racquets are known for. The racquet also has a think beam and head light weight distribution, giving it easy maneuverability. It not only hit solid but I felt it helped me with an extra "umph" on my serves that other tournament racquets could not provide. Be sure to check it out.
