Yet that kid, even surrounded by all those big guys et al, was the lead scorer in the game.

So thank you very much.

Go Lleyt :D

I'm not a big Hewitt fan by any means. But men's tennis needs all the exciting players it can get. And Hewitt is indeed one of them!

Hewitt is a great athlete who would be oustanding in many sports.

I don't think Hewitt plays as much tennis as he used to because he knows he wears down after playing alot. So just expect him to concentrate of the grand slams in the future. The days of Lleyton Hewitt playing 20 to 25 tournaments a year are long gone.

P.S. - Experimentee, Hewitt is too fast for those Footballers to catch him! ;)

Um...*men's tennis needs all the exciting players it can get* and you're calling Hewitt one of them????????
I think someone needs a reality check.

Lleyton is not quitting tennis. He just played a charity match of football on Sunday...and yes, he was definately too fast for many of the players that day. Most of them were former players who had just given up their time for that match...but one player was able to keep up with him. Erin Phillips, "the 17-year-old daughter of Port Adelaide great Greg Phillips dragged Hewitt all over ther ground" - The Advertiser (Adelaide newspaper)...but he did still manage to kick 3 goals. The photo @ the start of this thread is Lleyton celebrating after the first one

God! He looks terrible!
Boy.....keep on with tennis least with tennis pants we don't have to see her half-tanned and half-pale legs.

Yeah, but if he wore footy shorts all the time, the white part of his legs would be tanned too...but, yeah. Lleyton said during the match (in an interview after one of his goals) that he's sticking to tennis
