Yet again, Hewitt and Federer are scheuled to meet in the 3rd round.

This is becoming a joke. It seems like every RG, he meets Nadal in the 3rd round, and every other slam, he meets Federer in the 3rd/4th round.

ANDRE AGASSI, MONICA SELES, JENNIFER CAPRIATI


Lleyton Hewitt, Lindsay Davenport


Pat Rafter, Mark Phillippoussis, Rafael Nadal, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Sjeng Schalken, Chris Guccione. Martina Hingis, Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams, Alicia Molik, Mary Pierce, Amanda Coetzer, Anna Kournikova.

Maybe he should get his ranking up so he doesn't have to play them so early.

If it wasn't for his injuries this year, no doubt he would of avoided Nadal and Federer in R3.

Re: Yet again, Hewitt and Federer are scheuled to meet in the 3rd round.

Hewitt can't play on hardcourts without getting injured and most of the points on offer are on hardcourts which leaves him ranked around 30 so he's always likely to have a tough R3 draw.. it is a bit annoying that it's usually Federer though, except at the French where it's almost always Nadal.

Then it's a vicious cycle. How to get your ranking up when you struggle for a good run without injuries and always run into Fed and Nadal in R3 at the majors. It's tough, but that's life

Looking at recent history, Hewitt is 1-0 against Fed

Yeah, feel sorry for Hewitt, but like Voo says such is life for those not ranked high.

Plus, you never know.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Ivanesivic and Roddick top the living crap out of him in terms of unlucky.

Losing in the 3rd round all the time to the champion is not as unlucky as losing repeatedly in Grand Slam finals... repeatedly... by almost the same people.

Being a counter-puncher, however, is a style that punishes both your opponent and yourself. Hewitt should take it easier in terms of scheduling and I guarantee he'll get a good enough ranking to meet Fed or Nadal or whoever high-ranked enough into the 2nd week and beyond.

Lleyton's played Rafa like 4 of the last 6 years at RG, and he seems to play Roger lots at the USO indeed Hopefully it's better than the crapfest they played out last year
