A small group of Aussie fans are flying the flag and getting into the Fanatic chants…they occasionally launch into the Rocky theme as well
It is very warm, probably high 20s or even low 30s …skies clear…but very hot on court, all teams are under umbrellas
Lleyton is moving very well, and trying to keep this guy rallying as long as possible because in the end Yang's game breaks down, especially his back hand.

Lleyton serving at 4-3, Yang appears to have an ice pack under his right arm pit pressed against his rib cage
Lleyton just broke back…for 5-4 and is about to serve for it
Lleyton really attacking any second serve he gets a look at. He is intense and very much up and about. His aggression is good
Hewitt has taken the first tie 6-4 6-4 6-4.
Yang tried swinging big in the last game but Hewitt served it out with a big ace and a roar toward his bench - a valiant effort from Yang who got warm applause from the crowd.
