PHOTO OP: Hewitt + Baghdatis offer MOMA consolation prize for fans

"I know, I know. It just wasn't meant to be, bro."

So the much-anticipated Aussie Open third round rematch between homeboy Lleyton Hewitt and rejuvenated former finalist Marcos Baghdatis became a bust when the Cypriot retired from the match with a shoulder injury down 0-6, 2-4.

The pair played a match for the ages back in 2008 when their delayed third round match was pushed back to midnight and ended 5 sets later at 4:30 am. The Aussie hothead fell to the court after winning that encounter while Bags left in tears.

I guess our consolation prize (at least for me) was a bit of MOMA from these two ballers - some hand-on-shoulder, hand-in-hand and hand-on-neck action. So far, Delpo + Blake are tops, so to speak.

  1. i found it pretty weird and annoying how hewitt being in front of his home crowd and not the least bit tired only threw a couple of t-shirts to the crowd not even bothering signing a single autograph. quite a contrast compared to other players, eg kuznetsova who played till 2am or sth n still managed to give out a bunch of autographs.

  2. Wow, i didn't even notice ,
    he didn't give autographs..
    but he was always kind of
    an ass too.
    And watching Bagman was like
    Clijster's match part two.He was not present.
