Lleyton Hewitt had to overcome some earlier troubles to win his 21st career title. Hewitt seems to enjoy playing French Open champion Juan Carlos Ferrero, he is 5-3 against him in his career. This is Hewitt's 2nd title this year.

Associated Press:
ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) — Sixth-seeded Lleyton Hewitt beat second-seeded Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-7 (1), 7-5, 6-4 Sunday in the ABN Amro tournament to win his 21st career title.

Hewitt overcame early problems with his serve to improve his record against the French Open champion to 5-3. The Australian dropped his first set of the tournament but rallied to win his second title this year.

Ferrero, the world No. 2 from Spain, might have been strained from his long route to the final, which included three-set matches Friday and Saturday.

Good for Hewitt. I am waiting for someone else to step out and let the world know they are ready to play tennis. But of course, I like a variety of winners, and a tough road to #1. But in tennis, that is not easy to do, you get 1 player kicking butt, and there is nothing anybody can do to stop them. Congrats to Hewitt.
