Lleyton's future??

Obviously Hewitt has gone passed his prime and peak, and honestly even if he had injuries to come i dont think he'd retire any time soon, but say if he played on for another 3 seasons without any injuries where could Lleyton get his ranking up to?

I think its safe too say he will never return to the 10 or even top 20 but i think he can still beat plenty of players in the top 10 on his day, i think he has one more GS run in him, personally im hoping its at the Aus Open, but also could be Wimbledon, i reckon injury free he will easily return to top 75 by the end of the year!

Re: Lleyton's future??

Honestly, I think he can make it back to the top 5 without any more injuries.

Re: Lleyton's future??

Well unfortunately I think Hewitt will be done very soon. Maybe this years AO was his last slam run.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Re: Lleyton's future??

He has a good lob. IMO he should employ that for every shot and carve his niche as the real GOAT moonballer.

If you are talking about the junior rankings, I think he's a little too old.

Re: Lleyton's future??

Top 100 if he can play a year without a long injury time off, otherwise he will be ranked between 200 and 400 until it's over in the next 2-3 years.

Why would I be talking about the junior rankings? Although he could teach the youngsters how to correctly don the hat backwards + ponytail combination.

Re: Lleyton's future??

Honestly, Hewitt is never injury-free now. You can even see it in the way he walks. His body has just given up. But if he could get through one entire season (8 Masters and 4 Slams) without a single injury at all, I think he could still be top 20, maybe even top 10. But his body will never last that long again.

Re: Lleyton's future??

After this:
Expecting the grass season.. MTF BIOS. Today: Lleyton Hewitt

Comes this:
This year, he will fall into a big depression, tennis and life isn't what it was.

(Please, read the following statment with some sad music in the background)
"I used to be big, y'know?... I used to be the best. I was young, I was in love, I had everything.
But look at me now. I'm lost, hopeless, young europeans taking the lead. This isn't the world I dreamt of. This isn't what I deserve. Nobody deserves this.
Life can be a bitch sometimes, dude.
I just gave tennis a new road to follow... Some hope.
Hopes you can just dream about, but without her, I... I just can't do it anymore.
I don't want a plastic bitch, I want the girl that saved my life once, to keep dreams alive."

The world seems hopeless for Hewitt, he dissapears from the world. People start talking about retirement, one last exhibition match with Roddick and all will end quickly, no more pain.

But nobody knows where he is. Some people start to get worried. Rumors of his disappearance reached Kim's ears, and she remember that time, in the early 2000s...

"If you ever want to talk to me, I'd be in our special place".

So Kim went there, to that abandoned locker in Melbourne Park, and there he was.
An unrecognizable Lleyton, with a big hobo-beard, and 4 empty bottles of cheap booze, staring off... Into the deep void.

Kim took her hand, their eyes met again.
Lleyton thought he died and it was the last infinite dream, but not...

Life suddenly is worth living again.


That will be Lleyton's future, my friends.
I predict gold, diamonds, beeing top 10 again, finding his A-form.
But the most important thing... I predict love.

Do not say no to love.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.
