His serve is clearly better already. Give him 2 years.
What if he beats Hewitt in a few days? Hewitt is no Federer, but he's still good on grass. Ofcourse that's a "what if". but if he beats Hewitt, people seriously need to acknowledge that in the future, he may beat Roger on grass, beacuse Hewitt is a former well-deserved Wilmbeldon champion.
Nadal won't beat Federer on grass this season...and probably not in the next few years either. There is a high possibility they might never meet on grass anyway
