and the article:

Hewitt finds aces in pack

By JILL PENGELLEY

23sep02

Herald Sun

IN famous centre-court style, Lleyton Hewitt double-pumped his clenched fists, yelling at the crowd to cheer him on.






Before 20,000 fans, the world's number one (tennis player) had just snapped a goal at the scoreboard end of Adelaide Oval.

Over four quarters of yesterday's charity Slowdown III, Adelaide's most famous athlete impressed with his skills and his ability to evade tackles.

Like a greyhound racing a basset, he left stocky Port legends George Fiacchi and Russell Ebert in his dust.

Erin Phillips was another story.

The 17-year-old daughter of Port Adelaide great Greg Phillips dragged Hewitt all over the ground.

At half-time in what had otherwise been a lazy game – lazy handpasses, lazy tackling, lazy umpiring – the sweat in the Crows' changeroom told a different story.

"She's one of the best girl footballers I've ever seen," Hewitt conceded.

"She reads the play better than I do and she seemed pretty quick."

About the game itself, he said: "I'm definitely not the greatest footballer out there but it's great to be playing with people I idolised as a kid."

With that, it was back up the race for the second half and two more Hewitt goals to see him finish top scorer for the match.

When he wasn't kicking them he was setting them up.


A handsome stab pass from Hewitt to former Crow Matthew Liptak was converted to an easy six points in front of the Bradman stand.

A Crows fan, Hewitt once aspired to play league football but at 12 chose tennis instead.

The McGuinness-McDermott Foundation fundraiser featured football greats from the past 30 years, including Graham Cornes, Greg Anderson, Rodney Maynard and Wayne Weidemann.

Tony McGuinness hinted there might have been a gentlemen's agreement not to end Hewitt's tennis career with a heavy tackle.

"But he's so obviously extremely talented that he just ran his way out of trouble," he said.

Nervous parents Cherilyn and Glynn Hewitt watched from the stands.

"I thought he played pretty well," said Glynn, who himself played more than 300 league games for West Adelaide, Woodville and South Adelaide in the SANFL, and 15 games for Richmond in the VFL.

The score hardly mattered but, at the final siren, the Crows Legends were one point up on the Port Legends.

A minute before the siren, Hewitt was whisked from the ground, security having assessed that the crowd which stormed the centre posed more threat than four quarters of footy.

um...please dont call it a rugby uniform :P

on a side note the previous day to this match the real adelaide crows lost the preliminary final to collingwood 13.13 91 to 9.9. 63 in front of 89,000 at the MCG.

i would dare say lleyton wouldve been more upset that they lost that match than he wouldve been had they lost the doubles...well not quite i suppose

The view of interdependence makes for a great openness of mind. In general, instead of realizing that what we expereince arises from a complicated network of causes, we tend to attribute happines or sadness, for example, to single, individual sources. But if this were so, as soon as we came into contact with what we consider to be good, we would be automatically happy, and conversely, in the case of bad things, invariably sad. The causes of joy and sorrow would be easy to identify and target. It would all be very simple, and there would be good reason for our anger and attachment. When, on the other hand, we consider that everything we experience results from a complex interplay of causes and conditions, we find that there is no single thing to desire or resent, and it is more difficult for the afflictions of attachments or anger to arise. In this way, the view of interdependence makes our minds more relaxed and open.
