*(><)*time for HEWITT to retire [after AO]~ lame losses & pathetic breakers!

####
~~~~~~~
****
HEWITT should consider RETIRING
The last few years i just thought Lleyton had too many distractions with his marriage & baby being born, but 2007 was a year of many lost opportunities

I say he should retire, not because he`s too old [still could play a few more good years] & not because Federer & Nadal are dominating, but because Hewitt`s losing far too often to complete nobodies.. Also he`s lost his nerve on big points~~ for instance he had multiple set points against Karlovic & Shuettler in recent weeks but couldn`t convert
Dumping successive balls into the net on set points & double faulting when serving for matches isn`t going to get the job done

For some reason Hewitt`s lost his nerve, & I don`t consider it to be a motivation problem~~ he just can`t play the big points well anymore

If he doesn`t manage to turn things around by AO next year then I think it`s time for him to call it a day!!

Following your logic, 90% of the tour should retire.

True that after 2002 he has been going downhill. But it's partly due to Federer's rise and injuries + having a baby. As long as you enjoy watching him, it doesn't matter if he wins all the time.

i don`t expect him to win "all the time"
>>just don`t want to see him losing to guys like Shuettler, Karlovic, Tipsaravic, Hernandez, Monfils, Tsonga, Calleri.. etc. "all the time"

now LLEGS can`t even take MM titles when he has a sweet draw

Well some of those guys are good players and they are younger so that's an advantage over the aging Hewitt. Karlovic well he has a massive serve and many people have a hard time against him.

yeah sorry to disappoint you

Hewitt basically had 3-successive disappointing seasons & this year takes the cake in terms of losing to players he shouldn`t & squandering set points, plus rubbish tie breakers

...
the last three events [USO, Mumbai, Tokyo] have been especially disappointing because in each tourney he had a good draw~~ though keeps wasting his chances

well i had the same thoughts as u after cinci i thought yes lleyton could do well at the US but since cincy i havent seen him have any impressive performances i hope he can do well at the aus open but i dunno anymore i just hope he can get back to the top again and stop losing in mm tourneys

i was shocked to see u as the author of this thread though didnt seem like what u would write.

Go Hewitt and other Aussies
