The press chooses to talk more to Roger because, like Shanghai, unfortunately, he is the tournament's torch bearer. They are hoping that by getting the press more access to him, they can salvage some of their dollars.
Hewitt has not been playing well so they don't what to make of it. Andy has been out of action since October and even though he won the Kooyong title, it was after all an "exo". Also, the most recent interview with Hewitt was sort of anti-climactic since instead of saying that he would give Roger a run for his money, he ended up pointing out that their head-to-head is lopsided.
When Roger lost at Kooyong, neither Andy not Lleyton had too much to say about it other than the fact that it was an exo and nobody takes it seriously anyway.
