Tennis: LLEYTON GETS THE GOB DONE.

LLEYTON Hewitt's battling third-round victory over Juan Ignacio Chela was overshadowed by a spitting storm.

Chela appeared to gob at the Aussie in the fourth set after being rattled by trademark Hewitt shouts of "C'mon."

A vicious serve from Chela was aimed directly at Hewitt's body and that angered the Aussie so much that he swore at the Argentine, who reacted by spitting during the next change-over.

"He spat in my direction," Hewitt said after wrapping up a 6-2 4-6 6-1 6-4 win. "But he apologised later." Chela said: "I did spit - but not in his direction."
