Julie, right now Lleyton seems totally out of it. Unless he shapes up majorly, Ferrero it going to roll.

If Ferrero wins, I will be so angry. I just don't like that kid. And he doesn't deserve to win! LOL!

Kim: *spits out gum in joy* SURE! O crap sorry Lleyton I didn't mean to spit the gum in your hair?

OMG.

Did y'all SEE that match? I don't know how Lleyton won it! His legs were dead in the 3rd and 4th sets, and to come down from a break down TWICE in the 5th set....I'm amazed.

Lleyton :kiss: I take back everything I said about your minging serve during the US hardcourt season. :p

ESPN didn't show it, Jilli, as the match had already gone way past it's time slot. He did do a courtside interview with Luke Jensen, though, that I can transcribe if you want to read it.

I did go to bed, QG, I just didn't go to sleep. :p

Lleytons speech (correct me if I'm wrong):
*he congratulated JC on his tournament and he said there will be a time for him to win too. (something like maybe next year, mate!)
*he thanked the Chinese Governement for supporting the tuornament
*He thanked ATP and the public
*and of course Jason (we started on the wrong note in January, chickenpox...), parents, his mates and Hayden at home, ...

Nothing about Kimmie, but a lovely smile when he talked to her! :hearts:

Here in Belgium, it's all like 'the masters couple', 'they can do some serious Christmasshopping!':)

I wonder if Kim is staying in Lleyton's house without him and his family. That would be so weird for her, I bet! But where else would she stay in Australia?
I can't believe they asked him the name change question! He must have been sooo flustered! I'm amazed he didn't cancel the press conference right there!

Just releasing some stress and stuff, and it went overboard.

Though I would like to point out that I never once called Hewitt talentless, and I did point out that his mental strength won him the match - so please I would appreciate if people woul realize that, as opposed to assuming that I am implying something I'm not ;)

But come on - Hewitt and Courier starting a band, was a LITTLE funny ...? ;)

Lleyton Hewitt def. Juan Carlos Ferrero 7-5 7-5 2-6 2-6 6-4

QUESTION: Considering on Thursday you thought perhaps you might have been going home for the weekend, how does it feel to be sitting there with those two trophies next to you?
LLEYTON HEWITT: It's fantastic. It's been another very special week in my ?? not only tennis career, but in my life in general, I guess. To come here and defend it not only ?? you know, obviously my goal was coming here to get this one to my left, but, you know, once that sort of passed, then obviously I tried to put everything into, you know, regaining focus and desire and motivation, I guess, to come out and win the Masters Cup and defend it again. It's not the easiest thing to do when you're playing against the other seven best players in the world, you know. It's sort of, in my opinion, probably anyone in the tournament could have won it.

QUESTION: Where does this stand in terms of the set of most intense matches? You've played these three in a row now. Also, what are your feelings when it was over? What was your initial reaction.
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, well, every match this week was a grind, you know, it was ?? I didn't have one easy match. Obviously the Costa match was ?? I wasn't playing as well as I would have liked to have been, but you want to play yourself into the tournament as well, and then the Moya match, I felt like I played pretty well in that match and got beaten by a better player and had a lot of chances. Safin, Federer and Ferrero, you know, doesn't get much tougher than those three matches. I think maybe a couple of three?hour matches and a four?hour match nearly. So, you know, I don't know how I held up at all, considering the way that I have been feeling the last few weeks. I got no idea. And, yeah, when I eventually won today, just relief, I can put my feet up and go on holidays. It'll be great. Can't wait.

QUESTION: Congratulations, Lleyton. Justine Henin got married and she changed her name to the husband's family name. If you marry Kim Clijsters, do you want her to change to Kim Hewitt as well?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I got no idea. Haven't even thought about it. That's the least of my worries, if we're to get married, you know, it doesn't really bother me, I guess.
QUESTION: I don't think I can top that. Talking of Kim, who was it you were on the phone to when your dad brought the phone out on to court?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, it was Kim. That was an easy one.

QUESTION: Many great champions got the title of Masters; for example, Peter Sampras, Boris Becker. So are you proud of this title?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Very proud. I think obviously when you win it, you know, once it's something that's going to stick very close to your heart, when, you know, when your career is over, to win the final, you know, end of year Masters. For me to do it back to back, it makes it, you know, that whole much more special, I guess, you know, with all the pressures and going in there expecting to do well again. So, you know, something I think, you know, at the moment I'm over the ?? I'm so happy to be sitting here, won the Masters again, but I think when you settle down, you retire and look back on it and see that you were able to beat, you know, such a high caliber of players within six days, you know, I think sort of, you know, very proud.

QUESTION: When you were obviously in trouble at 1?3 down in the fifth, you suddenly found your first serve again. Was there any reason for that? Were you conscious of suddenly finding your first serve again? You had two love service games and served much better right at the end.
LLEYTON HEWITT: Not really. There was times during the match, you know, no doubt when I was hurting and I was struggling. My legs just felt dead out there and I sort of put everything in to try to end up winning, obviously, the first set, when I came back and win the second as well, you know, it was a little bit of a rollercoster out there and I just had a bit of a letdown and just sort of hit the wall out there halfway through the third set, pretty much after I had I think 2?3 0?40 to break back and wasn't able to break and then it sort of changed a bit. It was either 2?1 or 3?2 and I wasn't getting ?? my legs, I just wasn't able to get that push up on my first serve which was hurting me a lot because as soon as he got me in the rally, he was making me pay on the second serve. So, you know, it was something I was trying to do. I don't know why in the end, but it started to pay dividends a little bit, but you're right, in the end, I did certainly start to hold service games a lot easier and it was a lot easier for me to start putting pressure on his service games then as well.

QUESTION: Have you ever lost a match being up two sets to love? What was being done to your finger when it was treated on the court? You looked like you ran out of gas in the middle of the match, just wondering what you told yourself, you know, when the fifth set started.
LLEYTON HEWITT: The first question. No, I can't recall losing a match from two sets to love. The closest that I came was probably against Schalken in Wimbledon quarters this year. Second question, the finger. I had it ?? I've had a small cut there the last few days and it's just been getting worse and worse with obviously the longer matches and this morning in practice, I practised without it taped and it just started opening up and bleeding in the practice court. So really no other choice than ?? the trainer before the match put on some kind of glue stuff and then to stop it bleeding, but also then like a hyperfix wrap and that was falling off towards the end, so I decided to do this when it looked like going into a fifth set. What was the last question?

QUESTION: You ran out of gas.
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, well, it was no surprise to me that I was running out of gas. You know, I haven't been able to do any training over the last, you know, four to six months. So, you know, for me, it was no real surprise that I was starting to get a bit tired out there. Start of the fifth set I was, you know, hoping to try and get off to a good start and hold serve and trying to keep in front. I wasn't able to do that and then I just had to say to myself, dig deep and actually thought about the Schalken match a lot during that fifth set. I was two sets to love up in that match and lost the next two and then was down a break twice in the fifth set against Schalken, exactly the same as today. That never say die attitude, I guess, helped out a lot again today.

QUESTION: Now that the year is completely finished, can you just reflect on it a bit and maybe compare it to last year where you basically won a Slam and reached No. 1 and won the Masters Cup and how are they different?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I think this year I came ?? went up against the odds quite a few times this year and was able to bounce back and I think that's ?? you know, that's the most satisfying part of this year, the way that I spoke about it a little bit obviously after the other night when I got No. 1, but the chicken pox just hit me around a lot at the start of the year and I spoke about how disappointed I was, you know, with what happened at the Australian Open and it would have been easy for a lot of guys to sort of not go through the motions, but not be ?? try and prove something to yourself and to everyone else, I guess, after that, and that's what I tried to do. I trained extremely hard back in Adelaide with Jason straight after that. I felt pretty bad for Jason as well. We just started and then, you know, I was in the sick bed for three or four weeks. So, you know, for me, that's probably the most satisfying thing throughout this year. Last year, obviously, you know, I had a pretty good year first half, but then obviously the second half was incredible last year and, you know, something that I was able to build on this year, you know. Throughout the year, I felt like I've played some great tennis in different parts, you know. Obviously winning Indian Wells, I felt like I played outstanding in San Jose, Indian Wells, then the clay court season wasn't my best and then got on the grass and played as well as I've ever played on grass, you know. That was probably the best tennis that I've nearly played for those three or four weeks. And then the US summer I actually felt like I wasn't feeling great and didn't do a lot of work going in, but I felt like I actually had pretty good results withstanding the way that I wasn't able to ?? I didn't really prepare that well for those tournaments and I still made final at Cincinnati, came close there, and also, you know, semis of the US Open.

QUESTION: How do you call with your friends, with your family, what killer instincts or which special shot you are inside yourself, special power you can have on court to win match like this? Second, you are still surprised sometimes about how good you are and what you can do on court?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Where does it come from?
QUESTION: Yes.
LLEYTON HEWITT: I really don't know. Ever since growing up in juniors, I always played a couple of years out of my age group. I never ever played in my age group and I was always playing against bigger, stronger kids and I had to develop a way to beat them, you know, I had to ?? sometimes I got my butt kicked and I didn't really enjoy that and I had to come back and try and work out how I was going to beat them. And obviously one of those things was going to be very mentally tough out on the court and that never say die attitude and I think, in a lot of ways, it sort of came from there but, you know, when I was playing football and stuff like that, I'm very competitive. You know, I think a lot's got to do with that. I see every point as match point in a lot of ways. You know, even if the guy is serving at 40?0, I still want to try and somehow win that game and the way that I look at it, if I win that game, that's a bigger bonus than just breaking to love anyway because, you know, you're starting to get into their mind a little bit more. The second question. Yeah, it's hard to believe that, you know, so much has happened at such a young age. You know, it's very surprising to me. It's not that long ago that I was, you know, going with my parents to the Australian Open with my sister and watching ?? I remember getting there before all the matches and watching Ivan Lendl grind it out with Rochey on the practice courts out the back and I went to Melbourne Park every year since it's been open and, you know, for me, that was just the greatest holiday being there and seeing those guys play in the Australian Open and, you know, for me to actually not only be part of the Australian Open and part of the tour now to actually be at the pinnacle of it, like a guy like Lendl was and that who I sort of looked up to and, you know, just tried to work out everything that they did, you know, it definitely is surprising sometimes.

QUESTION: Paul McNamee was doing a little session with some kids here yesterday morning and apparently the large majority of them were running around with baseball caps back to front. Is it kind of gratifying to know that all that you're achieving is also being noticed by young children who undoubtedly aspire to play the way you do perhaps in the future?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, it's great, great ?? I take a great pleasure in seeing that. Yeah, it's a bid weird, though, for me at the same time. You know, I'm only 21 at the moment and to see, even back in Australia, a lot of kids are running around with back?to?front caps and just when kids come up and see you and stuff, you know, they're over the moon just to come up and shake hands and say hello and stuff like that and these young kids and, you know, it definitely feels weird sometimes, but it's also, you know, a great feeling as well to know that you're doing something for the sport of tennis that has done so much for me, both on and off the court and, you know, also in some ways helping out Australian tennis means a lot to me as well and if that's going to get kids playing and wanting to play Davis Cup the way that I want to play, you know, for Australia in the years to come, then, you know, then I see that I've done something good for Australian tennis.

QUESTION: You've just had a dramatic week here and Shanghai seems to be your lucky place. You just promised on the award ceremony that next year if you are invited, you will come here again to the Heineken Open here. Going to have a very high ATP score and prize money. So will you keep your promise if next year you are invited?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I promise? I don't think so. But, yeah, I definitely didn't promise anything, but coming back, Shanghai has been a great place for me, you know, everything has run very smoothly here and, yeah, everything has been great, the hospitality, the security, you know, the way the tournament has been run. Whether I'll be back here, you know, in years to come, you know, I'm definitely not going to promise anything, but, you know, it's definitely ?? it's up there now. It's got a lot better chance that I'll be back here playing in the tournament one day. I'm not going to definitely say next year, but, you know, a lot depends on how the schedule fits in and I know that it's very close after a Davis Cup tie as well, so a lot depends on Davis Cup and where we're playing and stuff like that.

Juan Carlos Ferrero lt. Hewitt 7-5 7-5 2-6 2-6 6-4

QUESTION: Very close match, very tight for you. Were you a little bit disappointed and did you think you had very good chances?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Of course, I had 5?3 in the first set and then I lost 7?5, I think, in the second, he take the advantage, but, you know, I come back with good tennis again and I was trying to win the sets is 5 again and then, you know, I think he was a little bit tighter, then I start to play more accuracy with my forehand and then in the fifth set, everybody knows the story, you know. He's a tough guy, you know, he didn't do a lot of mistakes, I take at 3?1, but, you know, finally I lost the match. That's it.

QUESTION: You've now played a final in China. You've won the title in Hong Kong. You've done it on hard court. How do you feel really about your game this year, big year for you?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Right now, I don't feel very happy, but, you know, if I'm thinking in the year, you know, I have to be happy because, you know, I didn't start the year well with the injuries and right now I finish the year really good playing the good tennis, you know, doing the final here in Masters, you know, taking a lot of chance to win. So, you know, seeing the whole year, I'm really happy.

QUESTION: If it's true that we learn more from a loss, what do you learn today about yourself and about Hewitt?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: I have to live, you know, to pass more time to say something. You know, right now I'm not thinking in the match. Maybe tomorrow I'm going to sit with my coach and see what's happened today but, you know, maybe I have to learn from him that he has a good talent in the important moment, you know, and in the fifth set, you know, with 3?1 down, he was still, you know, win the match, be positive and then, you know, he win the match. So I have to learn something off him.

QUESTION: This is your second big final of the year in addition to Roland Garros. In both matches, you lost the first two sets. Can you talk about your performance today versus Roland Garros? Second, can you also just talk about what is it about Hewitt's game that makes him the most difficult person to beat in the world.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: No, in Roland Garros I had a lot of problems in my, you know, physically and I couldn't play my level like today, you know, and I lost the first two sets and, you know, and then I would be a set, but, you know, in any moment I couldn't play, you know, with happy tennis, you know, and I think here was sort of different, you know, between the final in Roland Garros and this final, you know, I know I lost the first two sets, but in the first set, I had 5?3 and I had opportunity to win the set and then, you know, I come back very strong, you know, winning the two sets easy, 6?2, 6?2, and, you know, I think is nothing the same between the final here and Roland Garros. About Hewitt, you know, he has a very good talent. He never do full mistake, you know, and in important moment, he always be there, you know. You have to win the point. He never going to miss the ball and, you know, in important moment, it's very important to do this.

QUESTION: How do you look back to this Masters Cup, the whole week?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: You know, watching the whole week, I feel really good, you know, just lost two matches. I played really good against very good players. So is the first final for me. So, you know, I feel so great right now. I have to be happy.

QUESTION: Moya beat Carlos to make Hewitt qualify and Hewitt got the championship. Would you complain to Moya?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Of course not.
QUESTION: Today's match, you know, most of the audience are supporting you. For the sake of the audience, will you come back to Shanghai and give us such great tennis again?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yeah, of course I want to give thanks to all the people who are supporting me in the match, not only today, during the whole week and I hope to come back some day. Why not?

QUESTION: Is the French Open your biggest ambition in your tennis career? Do you want to win the French Open?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Is a special tournament because it is very close from Spain and we like the clay and it's a good tournament. I like so much, but it's not only the one tournament I want to win in my life. I want to win a lot of tournaments and Roland Garros is one of these.

QUESTION: Just going back to the competition, is there any moment during the match that you thought you can win the match?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: What you think? On 3?1 in the fifth, of course I thought that I can win the match, but finally I couldn't do it.

QUESTION: This tournament, which one is your best match?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: I think the matches against Agassi, Moya and this one was really good and I don't know exactly which one I'm going to keep it, but today because was five sets, very good tennis.

Was anyone else thinking Lleyton was (almost) crying when he hugged Jason?

Angele
11-17-2002, 09:31 PM
I'd have to watch my tape again to check out Lleyton's hug with Jason :angel:

And I'm thinking the reporters are gonna start asking about Kim more because a) after her win at the tour championships she's more "main stream" and b) they realize Lleyton actually doesn't mind talking about Kim :D :hearts:

Lleyton's standing at crossroads of Aussie approval
Gordon Wiegold
Monday, 18 November 2002

Little Lleyton comes home this week, unchallenged as the greatest tennis player on the planet for another year.

The boy from Adelaide won't get any ticker-tape parade, the PM must be a long way out from an election because even he hasn't joined the "I love Lleyton" brigade, and potential teenage groupies will be at home playing Eminem CDs rather than hanging over airport barricades to greet the world number one.

While Australia loves its champions almost without exception, Hewitt stirs up about as much affection as a cat that has just abandoned its litter.

Will we never forgive him for calling us "stupid"?

Here is a young man who has most of the qualities our parents would like to see in their children - he fights for what he believes is his, he is passionate in his endeavour, he plays sport, he is financially secure, he likes a beer in moderation and he loves his family and country.

Knowing that he does like a beer, I turned the clock forward to his homecoming party and homed in on his conversation with former golden boy Pat Rafter.

RAFTER: Mate you're going all right? Have you heard from Newk and Rochey?

HEWITT: They couldn't make it, they were very apologetic but said something about having to attend a brainstorming session for Newk's next book - Why I Loathe Everyone but Pat.RAFTER: Did you get a look at Marat Safin's entourage over there - what is the story?

HEWITT: What entourage - mate I was ringing Kimmy after every match. All this money we're earning doesn't take care of itself - I'm not like you mate, giving it all away to charity. We've got a nest-egg to build and a thousand accountants to keep busy.

RAFTER: Mate, Stolts [coach Jason Stoltenberg] must be stoked.

HEWITT: Probably, I'm just glad Andre [Agassi] didn't win because I couldn't stand it if Killer [his coach Darren Cahill] got one up on me after leaving Camp Hewitt. I'll throw in a bonus for Stolts - with Kimmy's permission of course.

RAFTER: There are not many people here at your party.

HEWITT: It doesn't worry me. I've got a beer and my trophy cabinet to keep me company - besides my close friends are here and that's all that counts.

RAFTER: Look mate, I'm thinking of making a comeback. A couple of things - would you and Kim like to babysit for us - sort of a trial run if you go down that path at some time in the future?

HEWITT: Sorry mate, busy.

RAFTER: Well what I really wanted to know was would you take it easy on me at Wimbledon next year? You've won the bloody thing. Perhaps you could tank it in the quarters and give us mere mortals a chance.

HEWITT: Sorry mate, my 137-channel satellite mobile phone is ringing - all right, it's Kimmy - "Balboa, hon - how's it goin?" - sorry Pat I'll have to catch up with you for a beer later.

You get the feeling Hewitt is always one outburst away from undoing all his good work.

Every time he takes the court or has a microphone shoved under his nose, Australia holds its breath much the same way we do whenever Anthony Mundine or Kylie Minogue hits the TV screen.

Perhaps we have been spoilt by witnessing the rise and rise of Rafter.

Here is a man who is as popular with males as he is with females - always the true test of celebrity status.

Just as every American mum wants their daughter to marry Tiger, it's the same story with Pat Down Under.

While little Lleyton wouldn't be the first role model who springs to mind for Australian mums, he is doing his best to win hearts by his actions and ability.

There comes a time in every relationship when you have to decide whether or not to forgive and forget.

Lleyton's love affair with his homeland is probably at that juncture right now.

So, where do you stand?

Only a Canberra newspaper would write such absolute crap! Don't post it anywhere else. Canberra's population is pretty small, so if we don't advertise, it will just go un-noticed :)
