    Andujar dispatches Hewitt, Lu upsets Seppi Madrid semifinalist Pablo Andujar made a successful start in Nice with a win over wildcard Lleyton Hewitt.

    It was a good start for surprise Madrid semifinalist Pablo Andujar, as the Spaniard took out Aussie veteran Lleyton Hewitt in three sets.

    The match was a typical clay encounter between two players who are better on return than they are on serve. There were 10 breaks of serve, 6 that went Andujar's way and 4 for Hewitt.

    The Aussie showed his usual fight to take the second set, but Andujar's superior play on the dirt combined with the confidence of having shot up more than 50 spots in one week gave the Spaniard the edge.

    Andujar will take on Yen-Hsun Lu in the second round.

    Nice lost another seed, as Italian Andreas Seppi joins No. 8 seed Denis Istomin on an early flight to Paris.

    Lu just managed to edge out Seppi in the first set and the Italian decimated Lu in the second. But it was the man from Taiwan who brought the goods in the important moments of the match.

    The third set was a mess of service breaks, with the two men combining for 5 breaks of serve total with Lu once again edging out the win over the Italian.

Pablo should be in the top 20 soon.. and then maybe top 10 if he works hard (on his confidence mostly) - I didn't know he looked so much like Nalbandian though, lol (click on the link 'Pablo Andujar' above) :P

Ha! That's funny, Shireling. It's a much slimmer Nalbs...must have been a while ago.
