My point is, the Hewitt of 4 or 5 years ago would still have won those matches, or at least extended them to 5 long gruelling sets.
Sorry - one good tournament win isn't going to stop him losing those kinds of matches to players in good form who in the past he still would have beaten - Baghdatis at Wimbledon, Roddick at the US Open and Gonzalez at the Australian Open.
Truth is that Hewitt's game suits his opponents to get a great rhythm so when Hewitt loses it always looks like his opponent is in top form...Baghdatis on the other hand was incredible from the go...
His loss against Roddick I dont count as such. Actually, Lleyton won the matches you just spoke about against Djokovic and Gasquet in relative ease and with his experience and I never doubted those. And against Gonzo and Baggy he fought his heart out and almost made 2 fantastic comebacks...Against Baggy he was just 2 points from a 2-1 in sets and against Gonzo it could easely have become 2-2 and I beckon Lleyton would have wn the fifth (and thus defeating a player who was in such form I thought he would whipe the floor with Fed)
Roddick was in red-hot form but he played against an injured Lleyton who after the USO hardly played a match because he was só injured.
