Your favourite Lleyton emotions/gestures/... ?

Lleyton's emotions when he is so totally pumped up are really INCREDIBLE and it goes beyond words to describe it I love watching it so much and I'm always happy when I see it!

I think one of my all-time favourites so far is for sure as he broke Andy or after he won the set against him (I can't remember exactly anymore).

This fist-pump towards the floor and the "C'MON!!!" were sooo HUUUUGGEEE!!!!

That's just awesome to watch!!!

Go here to this page of tennis.info and the fifth pic from the top of the page is what I mean.

Re: Your favourite Lleyton emotions/gestures/... ?

yeah i get what u mean...but to be honest when he does that i'm always a bit afraid of him...

And the reason i like watching his matches is because he does all those things...Man i love all these emotions! at least he lets them out....

but to be honest my favourite stays the 'C'MON' -scream! and his fist!

Go Lleyton Hewitt!!
just gotta love him in blue...
Go Roger Federer!!
just gotta love him and his cow

Go David Nalbandian!!
just gotta love him

Re: Your favourite Lleyton emotions/gestures/... ?

I love that gesture,Neely
He did it quite a lot these days
can't remeber when he started to do that(sometime this year,i think)
guess he starts to invent his own gesture now
gotta love that emotion he showed on the court

Re: Your favourite Lleyton emotions/gestures/... ?

I like the lawnmower starting thingy...

My FAVORITE is the VICHT. I love the way he's added his own touch to the Wilander salute. He yells as he does it.

I think Lleyton may have gotten even more exhuberant just because Andy complained, because he really laid it on.

I like both of them, and I understand how it was annoying to Andy, but really, no player should let Lleyton know he annoys them.

But the great thing about Lleyton is that his yelling and enthusiasm isn't all icky and macho like for instance Connors. It gets the crowd going but he's not really appealing to the crowd but more just for himself and his bench. Anyway, I Lleyton when he's on fire. I love his never say die attitude.

The "C'mon's", "C'mon balboa" & "C'mon Rock" + fist are my faves I love it when he jumps in the air in excitement too.

Re: Your favourite Lleyton emotions/gestures/... ?

I like all these gestures but I think the lawnmower is my favourite. Yes, it's a bit too much, as most gestures but it is so much Lleyton. It always puts a HUGE smile on my face.
No other player does these gestures as good as Lleyton, he started it, some players imitate it but the original is the best!

Re: Your favourite Lleyton emotions/gestures/... ?

I love it when he's all pumped and getting on top of someone and the emotion just runs free! Then everything comes out and the funny jumps that go with it are great There's just so much passion there

The lawnmower is funny, an aussie cricketer Brett Lee used to do that quite well too, but he finished up with a grin. I also liked the 'Andrew McLeod' celebration after he beat Federer in DC

I think my favourite moment (that I can remember) was the DC semi against Federer, after the fourth set he somehow got the volley over, tripped over his own feet at the net, landed flat on his face then looked up and screamed C'mon with the fist while still on the ground!

Afraid? I love it when he does that, it pumps me up as much as it does to him (well nearly as much )

Yeah, Lleyton was so animated during that match against Federer, it was incredible to watch. In fact, I've wondered if Federer now holds somewhat of a "grudge" against Lleyton over that match, and that made him put out that extra effort against Lleyton every time they've played after that.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Definitely was a cllassic!

Roger probably thinks he has to demolish him for the rest of his career to make up for losing that match

My favorite is definitely his fist pump towards the ground, which i think started in his match against johannson at the us open. Even I start to get pumped up when i see Lleyton do that. That gesture is my all-time favorite.
