Australian Open – Live TV – Federer vs Hewitt

Free Live TV over internet – links at end of this post

Well Rafa got past Karlovic, now it is time to see whether Roger can join him in the quarter finals.

His opponent – no less than local hero, Lleyton Hewitt. Maybe the Aussie isn’t at the same level that took him to ATP number one back in 2001, but he’ll fight tooth and nail to the end.

Hewitt is well rested after getting through the last stage with an easy win over Bagdhatis after the Cypriot was forced to retire.

I pick Fed to win in four.

Good news for Europeans is that the match is first of the evening session- 7:30pm local time or 8:30am Monday morning GMT, somewhat more civilised than the all nighters!

Nadal beats Karlovic – faces Murray next in Quarters

The antipasto has been served, and the appetizer looks even tastier.

Getting up in the middle of the night European time turned out to be a good decision, as Nadal vs Karlovic was an engaging treat. The blasting services of the big Croat came thundering in again and again, with 28 serves and a whole lot more that the Mallorcan could barely deal with.

But you can see Nadal slowly coming back to his very best. Playing each point with the maximum concentration and intensity of old, you can feel his confidence bubbling to it’s effervescent best and his 4-6, 6-6, 6-4, 6-4 win was a reflection of that.

So… Murray vs Nadal – what can we expect?

Andy hasn’t lost a set so far in the Australian, and he is moving around the court better than anybody. It’s going to be a battle of patience, strength, speed, skill and endurance of the very highest level.

I pick Nadal to just squeeze out the Scot in five sets, another Open classic.

Mouthwatering.

Australian Open – Live TV – Nadal vs Karlovic

UPDATE – Match over, Nadal won 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4

With Rafa safely past his first major obstacle in Phillip Kohlschreiber, he faces an enormous one next against the giant Croat, Ivo Karlovic.

Although Nadal has had the better of his 6’10″ opponent in their previous two encounters, he won’t be taking the encounter lightly, saying he would have to be more aggressive against Karlovic:

“Always a really difficult opponent, no, because the match is decided in a few points.”

“So the thing is to concentrate hard on my serve all the time and try to convert the small opportunities that I can have on the return. That’s it.”

The match starts after the Andy Murray/John Isner match which will be a great opener. So we can expect Nadal and Karlovic on the court sometime after 12 midday local time, 1am GMT.

Federer through to last 16 – Beats Montanes in three

Roger was able to comfortably cruise past the Spaniard Albert Montanes to go into the last sixteen.

Although Fed certainly made it look easy, Roger was quick to claim in the press conference that it was anything but:

“Victories don’t come easy. If you look at today’s match … it looks straightforward. If you’re on the other side of the planet you think, okay, no problems whatsoever.”

“But it was a tough match. I had to battle through, and there was tough moments and frustrating moments out there. They don’t come easy, those victories.”

Federer will play local favourite Lleyton Hewitt for a place in the quarters. Although he’ll be the clear favourite with a 16-7 all time head to head record (and Roger on an incredible 14 match streak against the veteran Aussie), we all know that Hewitt will leave absolutely nothing on the court.
