I wouldn't have like to be around Lleyton after the Oz open loss he was one pissed off dude but here's summin I kept
Aussie Open 2002 Awards/Quotes
Lleyton Hewitt didn't get the points on court - out first round to Alberto Martin. But he gets huge personal points for doing his boyfriend duty and supporting his beloved, Kim Clijsters, all the way to the semi finals, where Jennifer Capriati ended her run 6-1 in the third. Not only did Lleyton sweat it out in the front row, he brought along an army of supporters in his coach Jason Stoltenberg, sister Jaslyn and parents Glynn and Cherilyn.
Kim Clijsters groupies included world No.1 Lleyton Hewitt, her boyfriend of two years, as well as the rest of the Hewitt clan and younger sister Elke.
CRAMPING HIS STYLE
"I think it's a shocker what happened at 5-4 (the trainer coming out in the fourth-set tiebreak to treat Albert Martin for cramps). You never know if I was going to get out of the situation anyway ... but it would have definitely made my chances a lot easier if we had played fair. Someone has got to put their balls on the line, I think, otherwise people are going to take advantage of it, like he did today."
