Ferrero is done, he can maybe get back to around #50 if he's lucky but I doubt higher.

Hewitt is still a class act, I think he'll be top 20 by the end of the year if he avoids injury and plays enough tournaments.

I can't see Ferrero getting back anywhere near the top 20 to be honest, such a shame, bloody injuries ruined his career.

As for Hewitt, he's still a class act on his day, so he should be fine, as long as he avoids injuries.

Hewitt's still got some game left. Ferrero is finished.

For Hewitt it all depends on how the hip responds. He's got the game, but hip surgeries are really tough to come back from, specially when speed is the foundation of your game.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

They’re both still top 50 material and have a few more titles in them outside of slams if you ask me.

Very true.

Oh well he’s had a great career and was at one point in time the most feared player by serve-volleyers and aggressive-hitters.

I wish Hewitt would stick to pimping his trophey wife on magazine covers. On second thought. Don't. I am sick of Bec and Lleyton there too.

To think Hewitt was #1 for such a long time... he'll come back to the top 30 if his hip keeps up.

Well, I can't wait to see the same headline for some of today's top players...

JCF is done. And sadly, I believe, so is Hewitt. I just can't see him coming back from the hip surgery.

I love my girls.

Hewitt was fairly impressive against Gonazalez in their 5 setter @ AO, considering the surgery & his rusty game he still looks to have Top-10 potential! just a matter of staying healthy/motivated..

Even though they haven't been at their peaks for quite a while, I thought that they'd still be within the 100, if not top 50.

So they would have to start competing in qualifying rounds now...
