Thanks for the thread
"Ten minutes? That's the women. It's not for the men; not for the real game, mate."
-- Lleyton Hewitt when asked if Andy Roddick's 10-minute bathroom break in their match at the Australian Open exceeded the limit.
"I don't know. Haven't I always been mature?"
-- Lleyton Hewitt, when asked if he had matured in his time since the break-up with former fiancee Kim Clijsters. The same Lleyton Hewitt whose standard on-court demeanor resembles a petulant 12-year-old in his first junior final?
"I know when I played Davis Cup and Cashy (Pat Cash) was in the team, we all got a little bit cockier. When he wasn't in the team, we crapped ourselves."
-- Australian Davis Cup captain Wally Masur on having big-match players such as Lleyton Hewitt on the team.
"I just thought he was one of the nicest guys, like just really easygoing and easy to get along with."
-- Bec Cartwright on meeting fiancee Lleyton Hewitt. Does Lleyton have a twin we don't know about?
"Maybe if you're playing in London or America, you don't feel that pressure quite as much."
-- Lleyton Hewitt's choke-insightful comment after losing at the Australian Open in 2003.
"I think I was as mentally tough as I've ever been. I felt like I handled the situation both on and off the court extremely well. I felt like I needed to."
-- Lleyton Hewitt on his break-up with Kim Clijsters.
"I can definitely beat him, yeah. But it's not going to be easy and I think I know as well as anyone he's definitely the man to beat at the moment."
-- Lleyton Hewitt on Roger Federer, who he has lost his last six matches against, including five bagel sets. Yeah, maybe he'll twist an ankle.
"He's already made a few comments to me in the locker room. He's not gonna get me a Christmas present. He reckons that was mine today, so..."
-- Lleyton Hewitt after beating his sister's boyfriend Joachim "Pim-Pim" Johansson at the US Open.
"You can't find a guy guilty until you prove him guilty. Greg is playing here and in Melbourne. I would say 'hello' to him. I am not that close to Greg, but I would not ignore him or anything, that's for sure."
-- Lleyton Hewitt, who says he would not ignore the drug-accused Greg Rusedski -- that's about as warm as the former No. 1 Aussie gets.
