Hewitt: Could win title?

Lleyton is in the best form of his career on clay and wouldnt be surprised to see him in the final on sunday. I know there is still many top players left in the draw but it will take something really special to defeat him at the moment.

Write him off at your peril!

I shall substitute Lleyton in your post, for Henman and that will get exactly the same response...NO!!!

I admit that Hewitt MIGHT make the finals but he will not win the whole thing.

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

He's prob playing the best clay cour tennis HE has ever played, but there are still people in the draw who are a heck of a lot more capable on clay than he is. If Lleyton reaches the finals or wins this (he won't do either or) then there's something very weird going on

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

I have been so impressed with his form at RG, when many wrote off his chances of still being there in second week, I really think he can beat Gaudio and once in the last 4...then who knows...

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

I would love for Lleyton to win Roland Garros.

He's my third favorite to win.

If he meets Guga in the final, he's gotta lose, but if it is anyone else, GO LLEYTON!!!!

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

A thing that could work in favour of Hewitt of at least getting to the finals is the fact the the other quarter, Kuerten vs Nalbandian is highly unlikely to be a straight sets match(both on top form), and if it is a long gruelling match and Guga wins it (which is again very possible) his suspect hip is likely to be under severe strain and causing him even more pain. Which means that if Hewitt beats Gaudio, which I think he will, he would end up playing a tired/in pain guga and as a result would have a huge advantage. If Nalbandian beats Guga, then it will be an even tougher match for Hewitt, a match he would probably lose but you never know!

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

Having seen Lleyton beat Guga in straight sets in Brazil (Guga's home town) during DC on red clay, I'm not going to write him off. He might just surprise the doubters.

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

If Nalbandian gets by Guga, he'll CRUSH Hewitt in the semis! No Questions.

Picky details!

Let's put it this way then: Unless he meets Coria in the finals, I want him to win. GO LLEYTON!!!

Re: Hewitt: Could win title?

Hewitt will only beat Gaudio if Gaudio caves under pressure... which is uh, entirely possible.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
