Memorial Drive, Adelaide 3-9 Jan

Player currently in the draw
Lleyton Hewitt
Juan Ignacio Chela
Mario Ancic
Joachim Johansson
Thomas Enqvist
Michael Llodra
Radek Stepanek
Florian Mayer
Jurgen Melzer
Taylor Dent
Nicholas Kiefer

Hewitt has a good chance to take out this title and possibly get the world number two title just before the Open should he also continue the form into the Adidas International in Homebush. Toughest competitors in this draw atm are Ancic and Johansson. Ancic is a 2004 Wimbledon semi finalist and has a great serve and Johansson is a strong serve also and a tough competitor.

Hewitts gone..damn it! he had a chance to avoid federer in the australian open draw.He blew it
From what I read in the paper earlier in the week he couldn't have gotten number 2 even if he had won.

:mad: There goes another Aus Open opportunity?
I think it could be a blessing in disguise. How many times have we seen him or another Aussie turning it on in events prior to the aussie open and then they crash amid all the high hopes on them at the aus open. He now has a week to prepare. Wouldn't be surprised if him and Dent meet in Melbourne, expect a different match then. Still looking forward to a good final on Sunday! Go Dent!

Good point. He has been heavily building up with great unbeatable form in previous summers in lead up tournament only to be humiliated during the fourth round. The El-Anayoui, Federer and Norman losses in the past five years spring to mind quickly.

Johansson won :D

Good tough match between two big hitters, but I'm glad Pim-Pim won. I would have loved a Hewitt Johansson final, but it didn't happen
