Re: Lleyton's maturity
He does seem to have mellowed, off-court at least. For the last several years, I've seen him in Cincinnati, waving off requests for photos and autographs. This year, though, he stopped and spent time signing things when people asked, and did it without attitude! He even took a photo with me!
I don't know if it's because he's a little older, or married, or has a baby coming, or has been struggling with injury, but there's been a definite change.
Hopefully, he'll still get fired up on court when the moment calls for it. I'd miss the "little bastard".
