Hewitt reignites ATP row

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/2442943.stm

Lleyton Hewitt has hit out at his treatment by the organising body of men's tennis as he arrived in Shanghai for the season-ending Masters Cup.
The Australian used the opening ceremony to reiterate his intention to revise his schedule for next year.

And Hewitt made it clear he has not forgiven the ATP for fining him $103,000 earlier this year for refusing to do a compulsory television interview in Cincinnati.


"There are people at the ATP who don't treat you the way they should," said Hewitt.

"I wouldn't say we were on the greatest of terms."

The fine has already been appealed and will more than likely be reduced, ATP chief Mark Miles has said.

"We are not going to comment on Lleyton's schedule or the fine issue until it has been resolved," an ATP spokesman said.

"We are going to let it take its course."

In September, Hewitt said he would cut down on his 2003 schedule to concentrate on Grand Slams and the Davis Cup.

He said his decision was based on a number of reasons, including his own health and fitness.

Very smart by Lleyton though, I think the schedule thing has nothing to do with the fine. He surely realizes that with the way he plays he can't play 30 tournaments a year and still play into his 30s. If he only plays 12 or so a year, he's sure to be able to play longer.

dammit!!!! that Mark Miles is a wuss!!!!

at this rate, the Potato might end up paying only $300. -- which he can easily borrow from his girlfriend...grrrrrr....

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

He doesn't need to play 30.

The ATP only has 13 required events - I don't really think that is too much to ask

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Did you see the look on Mark Miles' face when he had to present the #1 trophy to Lleyton? He looked very uncomfortable

No idea at all... I thought Glynn was in New York for the hearing but Glynn is in Shanghai at the moment and there has been no word yet on the situation I would have to guess that it's not resolved yet and if it's not, I have no idea when it is going to be

I thought Glynn was in NY for the hearing last week, while Lleyton was preparing in Shanghai
