Give Hewitt a break!!

I find the stick that hewitt gets here unbelievable. I used to play tennis at national level until I was 16 and in my opinion hewitt is the perfect competitor. He gives absolutely everything when he is on court and is gracious in defeat. Anyone that is offended by a few come ons should switch to watching ballet. He is a great character and immensely watchable. If i had to have someone playing for my life, hewitt would be the choice. As a tennis fan he is one of the few players u can count on to always give his best and not cheat the watching public!!

He's an awesome game but I feel uncomfortable watching his behaviour. He's good for the game for sure, the Blake-Chela incidents were fun, a little bit of tension is always good.
By the way, on which cable chanel could I watch ballet ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

I'll check it out, but ATP-sponsored spit contests are much better...

Re: Give Hewitt a break!!

I agree that despite having any of the flashy weapons, he's one of, if not the best player to watch

But Lleyton will always cop it no matter what, thats what comes with the territory of having to be such a determined and fiery competitor on the court I guess

I think most who played tennis and tried hard to win themselves appreciate his determined attitude

Don't worry, I focus mainly on Marat's and Fed's matches, so if Hewitt is around usually he says "too good" or "great shot", so then Í appreciate him...

Re: Give Hewitt a break!!

his come ons are quite funny but what he did to the line judge after he got foot faulted in the final was unnecessary

I think all the players handled the bad line calling and questionable foot faults pretty well...including hewitt

What did he do exactly, I didn't get this one...

Re: Give Hewitt a break!!

He's one of the game's greatest assets, and a role-model for every sportsman as far as competing and being gracious in defeat are concerned.

I also believe that save for a couple guys on the tour he is pretty popular among his fellow-players, especially those who count.

YUP! Any worth while player likes him...u could see that when safin beat him even. And even when nalbandian lost to him. Hewitt or chela? who'd be a bigger loss to the game?? Hmmmm...tough one!

I havent played tennis, but i have played other sports so i really admire those aspects. Also other players like canas i really admire. Something i despise is the gutless wonders who are the total opposite of him.
