Re: how big a sportstar is hewitt in oz?

i think hewitt is bigger because tennis is played the world over.

ponting is more well liked but hewitt's victories are treated as a bigger deal. my entire school was watching the 01 us open final. if aussies win the cricket nobody really cares.

also i reckon most top afl stars and some nrl are probably bigger news in specific places than ponting but because cricket is played nationwide it makes sense ponting would be top a study like sweeney.

Hewitt is not that bigger sportstar in Australia...

He is not popular like when he was World No.1, and he has never been as popular as Pat Rafter

theres a difference between level of popularity and newsworthyness.

i do think hewitt over most of his career is considered a bigger star than ponting despite being hated by so many.

but anyway hewitt is more often in the chick mags these days than the sporting pages

there was a stage where he was and i still think even now he's fairly close, he's still go a lot of pulling power espically in january where some of the media still think he can win AO.
