What are the chances of Hewitt retiring at the Aus Open? Not sure what his motivation for sticking around would be... He's just declined too much - might have a flash or two of brilliance at times but he's basically done. If I were him I'd do an Andy Roddick at the Aus Open - I'm sure he was hanging around till the Olympics and that made sense - time to take it easy Rusty.
Hewitt can't be blamed for this loss - he hasn't won on clay since RG 2010 - it's Tomic who should have done better against Mayer. He's young, higher ranked and should be motivated. With Tomic's attitude who knows when Australia will make it back into the World Group. Shame for a country with such a proud Davis Cup tradition.
