6-3, 3-6, 6-7, 6-2, 7-5
Third seed Lleyton Hewitt teetered on the brink of defeat before finally seeing off Taylor Dent in 5 sets at the US Open.
Hewitt moved into the last 16 after battling for three hours 21 minutes. There was no sign of the drama to come when Hewitt raced into a 5-0 lead in the first set but Dent banished his nerves and went two sets to one up. Dent staged a magnificent rally to save three match points, and even had a break point, before Hewitt finally secured the win with his eighth ace of the match. "It was an extremely tough match," admitted Hewitt. "I really had to earn it."
