Clijsters was at full stretch en route to defeat

Srebotnik ousts Clijsters

Kim Clijsters became the first major casualty of the WTA Los Angeles Open when she was surprisingly defeated by Katarina Srebotnik.

Clijsters, the tournament's fifth seed, got off to a sluggish start against the Slovenian and could not recover, losing 6-4 2-6 6-4.

The Belgian struggled to find her range or match the superior speed of her opponent throughout the second-round contest.

And despite a brief respite, in which she took the second set, she fell apart once more in a tense deciding set.

08-06-2002, 11:19 PM
Well, here's my two cents:

Given the recent developments, it doesn't seem out of the question that Kim would have been a little distracted--from reading that article it seems to me that lleyton was really, really angry. I mean, that remark about Robby missing every ball-ouch! He doesn't usually say things like that! And if Kim had spoken to him, which seems likely, it just seems to me that it might be on the back of her mind. (shrug.) I hope she does loads better in Montreal, but I'm sure lleyton will keep loving her either way. :)

Just out of curiosity, and to keep up my tradition of randomness, is Kim short for Kimberly or is it just Kim?

KaseyL
08-06-2002, 11:20 PM
Well, where to start Keta... Lleyton is in a row with the ATP/espn for declining a TV interview until the very last minute before his first match... but he seemed to have taken his anger on court by that double bagel LOL.

As for the amount of money....
My mind immediately goes to an article I read in a British paper during Wimbledon that complained about how tennis had a serious PR problem, and cited Lleyton as a major offender. It stressed that the ATP badly needed to do something that would force players to take their "responsibility" to the sport in terms of PR seriously. And I think the ATP has probably been looking for a way to jump on Lleyton for his non-media ways, and saw this as an opportunity. The fact that he eventually consented and got fined anyway just makes me think that they really were determined to "teach him a lesson", if you will.
Hopefully, having gotten their message across, the board will reconsider on appeal and at least lower the fine.
IMO, if it were ANYONE other than Lleyton, this wouldn't have happened.

Here's another article about Kim's loss:

http://sports.excite.com/news/08062002/v3395.html


Capriati wins, Clijsters upset at JP Morgan Chase Open

Aug 6, 2002 7:44 PM (EDT)

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Katarina Srebotnik had the biggest win of her career Tuesday, upsetting fifth-seeded Kim Clijsters 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 in a second-round match at the JPMorgan Chase Open.
In another second-round match at the Manhattan Country Club, No. 2 Jennifer Capriati, playing in this event for the first time, overpowered Emmanuelle Gagliardi 6-1, 6-2.

In the last of the first-round matches, Ai Sugiyama beat Henrieta Nagyova 6-4, 6-3 and Janette Husarova rallied for a 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Magui Serna.

Third-seeded Lindsay Davenport was scheduled to play her first match Tuesday night, facing Elena Bovina.

Serena Williams, the top seed and defending champion, is scheduled for her first match Wednesday night, against Lina Krasnoroutskaya, who is playing for the first time since aggravating an ankle injury at the Australian Open in January.


Srebotnik, who twice finished the year as the No. 2 junior in the world, beat Clijsters in the Wimbledon Junior final in 1998. But Clijsters won their only match on the WTA Tour, at Luxembourg in 1999, and has progressed quickly in the world rankings to a career-high No. 3 earlier this year. She was No. 6 this week.

Srebotnik was 98th at the close of last season and is now a career-best 43rd.

"I've had some close matches with some top players, but I was never able to win one," the 21-year-old said. "I want to prove I can beat the top players if I play well. That's what I was trying to do today.

"I was playing really good in the first set. In the second set, I didn't play that aggressively. The third set was ups and downs, but at the end I think I played better on the crucial points."

Clijsters saw it the same way after losing her opening match at an event for the third time in 13 tournaments this year.

"She played some good tennis," Clijsters said. "She was good at the important moments. I played OK. I played some good rallies, but not at the important moments. I had some break points in the first set, and normally if I'm at my best I'll break her at least once, but I didn't today."

Srebotnik next plays Rita Grande, who upset ninth-seeded Magdalena Maleeva on Monday.

Pfff to this situation with Lleyton being fined. How stupid. Possibly being fined $196,000 is completely ridiculous.

Having said that, it probably wouldn't've been too hard for Lleyton to do an interview earlier in the week or something, but you never know. We're all from the outside looking in. And it wasn't in the best taste to make that remark about Robby, but, y'know, the truth hurts. :p

Anyway. I'm on Lleyton's side.

I was watching the tennis coverage and they did not mention LLeyton being fined like until 10 minutes into the coverage!! Which was surprising to me because I would have thought it would have been the top story. I don't know but to me possibly being fined almost $200,000 for missing a interview is just plain stupid. I mean come on, it was only a INTERVIEW!!!

They probably only requested the interview to try to make it hard for Lleyton to get prepared... Ginepri is American.

It's not like they like Lleyton, that's obvious. They had hidden motives.

Murkofan
08-07-2002, 02:36 AM
Well, part of that comes from the fact that he doesn't publicize his charity work, a la Agassi and Rafter.

And I wouldn't say the media hates him. It seems that some of the Australian media is particularly fond of viewing everything Lleyton does in the worst light possible, but I think the majority of the media is mostly okay.

Scotso
08-07-2002, 02:37 AM

He cares now that it could potentially affect the way he playes. Why couldn't the media just do the interview after the match (like every other match I've seen)?

Murkofan
08-07-2002, 02:42 AM
He doesn't need to publicize his bad stuff, Angie, other people take care of that.

But focusing on the negative is part of journalism. Don't you watch the news? Everything is doom and gloom. It's easier to focus on negative stuff rather than positive stuff, and that's what usually happens. It's more to bash someone than to build them up.

"Tony Stewart was fined $10,000 and put on probation for the rest of the year by NASCAR on Tuesday for punching a photographer after the Brickyard 400. "

I follow NASCAR, a auto racing thing(now don't make fun of me lol) and Tony Stewart has been know to have a temper. Last year, he was fined (I think) and put on probation(I know for sure) for not following the race rules. And once he got out of the car he knocked a tape recorder out one guy's hand and he argued with officals . But he's one of the nicest guys off the track and shows respect. So what I am trying to say is that I people are so different when their not playing or competing in their sport from when they are competing. Wow that was hard to type!!

posts, well I'm a bit bored so I will translate it. It's an old artical, it's from 1/1/2002, I will only post the question where she talks about lleyton!

During the brilliant game in Antwerp Koen Wauters sang for you "daar slaat ze" instead off "daar gaat ze". Good that there was a blue spot shining on you, because you blushed a lot!
" really? Ok, I don't have to do silly about that: I have all his cds at home and Koen looks well. Even here in Australia I have his music with me. Lleyton don't understand his songs, but he likes the melodie. He knows the Englisch version of "daar gaat ze" and let it her to his friends"

Once there was a pic of Pat Rafter hanging above you bed he?
"yes, but now I've got it more for another Australian. Last week Lleyton and I were invited at a party in with Pat in Queensland. We didn' go, coz the last thing we wanted to do was sleeping in a hotelbed again"

Did you go diving in the great barrier reef like you planed?
" No, lleyton didn't like that and now I know why: last year a men was eaten by a white shark and that on his weddingtrip!!! Since I now that, I don't want to go either."

How is it with you weddingplans? "It wouldn't surprise me iff
lleyton would sit here on his knee next year to ask her to marry him" your dad said
"how not too fast, first we will live together"

"That they already do" you dad says
"Iff we are together we share the room, but I'm talking about the house that I will build in Opiter, in the street of my parents. It will no be a palace, not too much corners etc."

At Roland Garros your dad said: " maybe Kim will be here next year with a baby on the arm''
"oops, then I must have been pregnant already! But he has right: it seems to me nice to be a young mother. My mum was only 19 when she had me, I will not be that young, but I don't see me playing tennis untill I am 27. Already now when I get up my ankles hurt etc.."

Are 3 weeks enough rest in Australia?
"For me it's ok, but Lleyton can't rest. If I go shopping in Adelaid, people talk to me, but keep it clean. If he goes outside, he needs protection"'

Paparazzi!
"You can lough, but 3 days long Lleyton and I escaped through the backgate! At the frontdoor there were camera's and etc.. We saw them from our room and we played a game: we throw a stone in the swimmingpool and alle the camera's went that way! Absurd, worse then in Belgium"

In 2002 you will have to share the attention with Rode Duivels, when you are playing at RG and Wimby, they play in japan
"great, but I Also wanted Australia in the group. The rode duivels are here the socceroos. We went to watch their match against Urugay. The won with 1-0, but lost the other match with 3-0! Lleyton follows like most of the australians cricket and rugby, but he was dissapointed. Did you knew that I went to watch with him at Racing Genk. Since then he is supporter of them and try to find some results in the Australian newspaper. He can't say Genk, but he will never confused it with Gent

Here's another article about Lleyton being fined, I don't think its been posted yet.

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news/ap/20020807/ap-cincinnatimasters.html


Hewitt wins match but gets fined

August 7, 2002


MASON, Ohio (AP) -- Lleyton Hewitt waited too long to talk.

The ATP fined the Wimbledon champion a minimum of $20,000 for refusing to do a required interview before his first Masters Series Cincinnati match on Tuesday.

The No. 1 seed considered forfeiting his match against qualifier Robby Ginepri in protest, then decided to play. He won 6-0, 6-0 even though his mind was on something other than tennis.

``If I am going to get fined for going out, what is the point of me going out to play?'' Hewitt said. ``My head was actually spinning before I went out. I am surprised that I didn't do what he did and miss every ball out there.''

Hewitt's tiff with the ATP got most of the attention on the tournament's second day. Michael Chang, Andy Roddick and Pete Sampras also advanced, while defending champion Gustavo Kuerten lost.

Hewitt lost money for refusing to let ESPN interview him to promote the ATP Tour and its broadcast of the weeklong tournament.

Several players are designated for interviews before each tournament and are required to comply as part of a program to promote the sport. Hewitt, who has also snubbed the Australian media, decided he was too busy.

``I said, 'No, I'm not doing it,''' he said. ``I have got other stuff going on through the week, and that's where the problem kicked in.''

Hewitt declined last week, and again when he showed up in Cincinnati. Warned that he would be fined, he changed his mind only a few minutes before his match.

Too late.

It will cost him $20,000 or half of his earnings this week in Cincinnati, whichever is larger. The winner of the $2.95 million tournament gets $392,000.

Hewitt has to beat Davide Sanguinetti on Wednesday just to break even for the week. Players get $30,000 for making it to the third round.

Hewitt can appeal his fine to a committee of former ATP players. He didn't get much sympathy from current players, who support the ATP's program to market its stars.

``I think it's great,'' said Roddick, who beat Michel Kratchvil 6-3, 6-3. ``I feel like the ATP is one of my biggest allies. I don't know Lleyton's point of view on things, but as far as I'm concerned, they're always there.''

In the featured night match, Sampras rallied in the second set and beat Guillermo Canas 5-7, 7-6 (6), 6-3.

Sampras broke Canas' serve to even the second set at 6, then served four aces in the tiebreaker. He pumped his fist to the crowd after his running crosscourt forehand evened the match.

Canas, who beat Roddick to win the Masters Series Canada on Sunday, started arguing calls and missing shots as he dropped the first three games of the final set.

``In the third set, he got a little frustrated,'' Sampras said. ``I had a little more than he did at the end.''

Another high seed was eliminated when Chang beat No. 3 Tommy Haas 6-3, 6-2. No. 2 Marat Safin lost in straight sets Monday night.

Haas has been limited by a sore right shoulder, and it bothered him as he warmed up for his match against Chang.

``I don't think I was mentally there,'' Haas said. ``I never got into a rhythm. It was tough to come back and focus, and Michael played very well. Even when he hit the (racket) frame, he was hitting the line.''

Chang decided to take chances against his tentative opponent.

``I really didn't have anything to lose,'' Chang said. ``I went out there and went for my shots, and most of them went in.''

2002 WESTERN & SOUTHERN FINANCIAL GROUP MASTERS
CINCINNATI, OHIO

August 6, 2002

HEWITT/Ginepri
6-0, 6-0

An Interview With:

LLEYTON HEWITT

THE MODERATOR: Questions.

Q. Talk a bit about the match, it went by so quickly.

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, well, he didn't play great obviously. He struggled a lot, but I just kept balls in play, what can I say. I practiced with him before and he hit the ball well. Then today just went out on the court, he looked very nervous right from the start. Apart from a few big serves here and there he really -- he struggled. I didn't have to do a lot, and was a bit surprised that I was able to keep any balls in considering all the crap that was going on before the match with the ATP trying to make me do another interview before I went out. Gonna fine me if I didn't do it. My head was actually spinning before I went out. I am surprised that I didn't do what he did and missed every ball out there.

Q. What were you asked to do?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Done all my commitments for the week. I'd never agreed to do another interview and then before the match, two hours before the match, I got told that I got to do an interview when I came in from practice. I said, that's ridiculous, before I play a match, I have never ever, ever done an interview the day before I play a match. So this crap is going on and in the end I wasn't going to walk out on the court, simple as that. They were going to fine me if I didn't walk out on the court. So ten minutes -- about an hour before I said, yeah, I will agree to do it. I said I will do five minutes before I go out. Nothing got solved. Then I am sitting in the locker room, my head is spinning, I didn't know what was going on; whether I was actually going to go out and play or not. It is a tough situation to be in, but when you got guys who can't make decisions within the ATP setup, it makes it pretty tough on everyone, I think, and I can really understand why the WTA, I think a lot of people see is going stronger than the ATP at the moment. I can't blame them.

Q. What did they actually want you to do, TV or radio?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I have done TV interviews during -- leading up to the tournament as it is anyway. I have done -- I got planned things to do as the week progresses that I have agreed to do. This pops up, I have never ever agreed to do this. It pops up and then they try to fine me before I have to play. At the end of the day ---

Q. When were you actually supposed to do the interview, before you went on the court?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I think they wanted in days leading up and I said, no, I am not doing it, I have done all my other stuff beforehand; I have got other stuff going on -- ongoing through the week and that's where the problem kicked up. I have got other interviews for US Open previews obviously as defending champion, and I have got all these other requests that I am doing. Then they throw another one at me and try to make out that I have got to do this otherwise I am going to get fined. That's when all hell broke loose then because if I am going to get fined for going out, what is the point of me going out and playing. I really don't understand that. It's tough for me to go out there and try and concentrate 100% on your game when you got 15,000 things going through your mind.

Q. How was it resolved?

LLEYTON HEWITT: It's not revolved.

Q. Did you do the interview?

LLEYTON HEWITT: No, I haven't done anything. I have still got other stuff that's got to be done, obviously with trying to talk to the head of the ATP. No one can make decisions - obviously by their decisions last year with ISL, for any decisions like that, then I think everyone is in a lot of trouble.

Q. How close were you not to playing today?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I wasn't going to walk on the court. I don't see any point in me walking on the court not giving 100% when I step on the court. We have seen guys in the past. I know everyone in this room has seen -- I am not going to mention names -- but there's so many guys who just show up and play for the money and then walk off. It doesn't matter. I wear my heart on my sleeve every time I step on the tennis court. If that's going to be ab issue when I go out there and play then I don't see a point in me going out there if my heart is not in it and I am competing for the right reasons.

Q. You mentioned something about obviously the women's Tour having a lot of exposure now and everything. Do you sense an urgency within yourself about where the men's game is or do you think it's just kind of everybody taking it to so seriously?

LLEYTON HEWITT: As in what?

Q. In terms of like in relation to the women's game, do you think the men's game is behind?

LLEYTON HEWITT: It didn't help with the whole ISL deal last year. That definitely hurt the men's game. It is a tough situation as it is anyway because we are in a transition kind of period with the whole young guys coming up and obviously Sampras, Agassi are so well known around the world, Rafter, everyone knows these guys, it's tough. Federer who lost yesterday, Kafelnikov, a whole list of big names that lost yesterday. It's tough for the tournament. Canas is a great player, but he came out and won a Masters series events last week, and that makes it tough I think for the Tour as it is. When you make decisions like that on top of it, then it's going to make it even tougher.

Q. Do you have any sympathy for the fact the Tour is trying desperately to get the Tour sold out there and pushing the sport and needs somebody like yourself as the No. 1 to help do it?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I can understand, you know, but that's even more reason not to push me before I go out and play. That's the way I see it. Sure, I can help, I think everyone can help, but the position I am in, then sure I can help it even more. I think is -- myself, Safin, Ferrero, these young guys coming up, Roddick, guys who are already half out there who can try and make the game bigger and better, sure, I have done so many things already leading into the US Open, coming into the US Open, after winning Wimbledon, at the end of the day when I can (inaudible) when it happens an hour, an hour and a half before you have got to play first round Masters Series event, you sort of wonder who is making the right decisions here; where is it all going.

Q. Do you wonder how players like in the NBA and baseball they talk before games, whether it is the 7th game of the NBA Finals; whether it's the biggest game in the World Series, other athletes in other sports do talk before the game, do you wonder how they do it?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Well, it's something if I was, I think, if you are growing up doing it, then you'd have a lot better understanding of it. I think -- what am I 21, I have never done it so far, this is my fifth year on Tour, and I have never done it. I know Pat Rafter has never done it in his whole career. It's different sports. If you had it and one day they decided that every time before every match you are going to do this, then I don't see a problem with it. The things is, you know, one time before your match when I am preparing to play, I am warmed up already, you know, I am in the locker room, I don't leave the locker room for that hour, and then comes at 50 minutes before I said, all right, I will do this interview, because I want to just -- that's how badly I wanted to get out there and play, not worry about getting fined, whether I was going to walk on the court, what my attitude was like, I wanted to get it all out of the way. I gave them 50 minutes to an hour, bring the camera crew, I said, bring the crew in the corner of the locker room, I will do the interview; then I will worry about my match. I am sitting there 'til five minutes to one, not knowing if -- what is going to happen. I ended up sending Jason, they said, no, we have don't have enough time. That's the thing that I think hurts in the end because are they looking after the players'best interest.

Q. Who asked you to do the interview?

LLEYTON HEWITT: A few guys in the ATP. But we have been having talks with the CEO, the last ongoing weeks let alone the last 24, 48 hours about the whole thing. He hasn't seemed to have enough guts to put himself on the line and make the big calls.

Q. Do you think it hurts -- I mean, not just yourself but a lot of agents control a lot of what the players do with media requests, things like that. Would you feel better if one universal authority said, here's your interview list for the week, this is what you need to do instead of an agent telling you one thing; ATP needing something else, then maybe individual media come up to you on your own?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Well, in some ways, but the other, you know, there's so many things that the player, I don't think, needs to deal with as well. There's requests after obviously you win a tournament, let alone you win Wimbledon or US Open, the requests are that long, that to try and for a player, I think, to say that you have got to do all these, I think that's ridiculous. That's too tough. I think the agents are there to try and pick out what is in the player's best interest obviously. I think it happens in all sports, I am getting -- I can't -- I know football back home, stuff like that, that happens. I can't speak for American sport, but in tennis it's always sort of been the way. That's the only way I have sort have known growing up, so I try and deal with that as much as possible. I try and give myself or give everybody as much notice as possible as well about doing the things because that way it makes it easier on everybody.

Q. Does it take a price to pay to be No. 1, though, to have those kind of requests around you --

LLEYTON HEWITT: There's definitely more things you have got to do. But I am willing to do that. That's part of being No. 1 in the world; that's part of being a professional athlete. I am still learning. I have got no problem with that. But there's things you have got to do and you have got to put yourself out there be in the spotlight. I have got no problem with that. But then again, I want to sort of have a schedule and sort of know what I have got to do ahead of time as well. I don't want anything sort of affecting the way that I play. At the end of the day, I have got to No. 1 because I train hard, I work extremely hard, and I don't want to get to No. 1 and then do all the media and everything can sort of get - not psyched out - but worrying about doing the media and whatever, rather than what you did to get to No. 1; how hard you had to work to get there.

Q. Do you ever enjoy doing interviews or are they always like a task?

LLEYTON HEWITT: No, I enjoy doing them. Everyone keeps saying about Australia media, but there's Australia media that I talk to all the time. But it's not always on an interview basis, it is on a friendship basis talking about the footie back home stuff like that. There's only been a few people in Australia who have sort of got on the wrong side with, I think both them against me and me against them. Apart from that, the Australian media has been fine, every time I go home I speak to, you know, all the networks when I arrive home, I have been speaking to reporters who -- Australians who work in London and also in Australia over the last few weeks as well. I think -- I enjoy it some interviews. Obviously if it always adds up, it becomes a bit of a chore. I did an interview a couple of weeks ago with the L.A. times and it was fun. I really enjoyed it. They are the kind of interviews I think that are better when -- I thought it was a 15 minute interview, we ended up talking for over an hour because just kept rolling, and I got no problem with that.

Q. Is your understanding that you are getting fined or you don't know?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I have good no idea, mate. I don't know what is going on. I am trying to play tennis.

Q. Ask you about New York since you refused to be interviews by the NEW YORK TIMES can I ask you about New York then. Was that moment last year when you won a blur or was it something that you really remembered in detail when you won last year?

LLEYTON HEWITT: US Open?

Q. Yes.

LLEYTON HEWITT: I pretty much remember most of it, I think. Obviously I think as soon as you win you are sort of in awe of the whole situation. Winning the US Open, winning your first Grand Slam, I think more importantly, everything sort of hits you at once, I guess. I hadn't been in that much of a spotlight before even 16 year old winning a tournament always sort of did everything before everyone sort of thought you would, but when you win a Grand Slam and it's sort of your dream come true then I think it hits you a little bit quicker.

Q. Did your life change at that instant do you think?

LLEYTON HEWITT: It changed a little bit, as you know you probably people are coming at you more, as a Grand Slam Champion as I am sure Costa and Johansson and these guys are starting to experience. After you win a Slam people obviously have a lot more respect for you as a tennis player but also they want to get a win over a guy who has just won a Slam as well. Everything sort of changed. For some reason I felt like I handled it really well. I felt like it was, you know, I always dreamt of winning a Grand Slam, always believed that I was able to, and when the time came, I still believed there was more to go on with and I think I showed that by going out at the Masters Cup and trying to win that as well.

Q. When you go back to New York this year somebody will think you of you as like the champion and that wonderful moment you had with Pete; some people will remember the James Blake incident. How do you think you will be received when you go back to New York this time?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I hope well. I was able to forget about it during the tournament and go on with it. Everything has been fine pretty much since then. You know, I actually felt like the crowd was -- from that moment on I felt like the crowd was pretty good. Obviously against Roddick in the quarters and Pete in the final, the crowd was going to be going for them. If it comes to Australia, then the crowd goes for me. It's not much you can do about that. But when I played Kafelnikov in the semis, I felt like the crowd was great when you got two guys from different countries playing, I think they wanted to see a young guy have an opportunity at winning his first Grand Slam.

Q. Do you have any regrets about the Blake episode, even if it's just, you know, I wish that the whatever-perception, the misunderstanding had never occurred, something to that effect?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I think you always, you know, when people, you know, sort of perceiving it in the wrong way, I think it always hurts a little bit. You are disappointed in some way or you'd love it not to happen. But it happened, and people saw it their way and everyone's got their opinion. I can't change that. I go out there and thank God I was able to be very mentally tough and block everything out and I knew I was playing good tennis and sort of move on from there, and get the job done.

Q. It will be a different experience for you first time you will be defending a Grand Slam title. How do you think you will approach that?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Really don't know. I am going in with the same preparation as last year obviously playing the same tournaments now, taking a week off before the Open and I feel like before the US Open I think for me it's important to take a week off, and it's going to be really nice. I spoke to Pat a few times after he won the US Open, he said, just to go back there at a place that meant so much to you and, you know, won so many big matches and changed your life, you know, he nearly bowed out in the first round to Arazi the first year, but he was able to go on and win back-to-back and hopefully I can go in there and I am sure the first few rounds are maybe going to be the toughest.

Q. The match today, being that it was pretty easy and you have had -- you were sick, then last week didn't go so well. Does it make it a little hard for you to gauge where your game is at?

LLEYTON HEWITT: A little bit. But I am playing doubles this week, which is great. I had a win yesterday somehow, didn't play great but we got through. I think it's good for me now to get some -- try and get as many matches as possible. Sure, I'd love to win here in Cincinnati going to do everything in my power to win here and both in Indy next week. If I don't I still want to be gradually improving, improving for the big one at the US Open.

Q. Given the schedule, have you hit the right mix the last year maybe even sort of -- you talked about overscheduling yourself and not taxing yourself too much before a Slam, have you found the right mix?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, sort of, I think. I think for the US Open definitely. As long as -- I feel like I'd like to play a fair few matches before going into it. But then also the week off, I think is extremely important. Hard court in this -- if the heat is like it has been the last few days here it's going to take the toll. I don't think going out there and playing the week before is the best thing with my game. Australian Open, I really don't know what is best for me just yet. Obviously the chicken pox and everything sort of up in the air earlier this year, and for the French, Wimbledon, Wimbledon I pulled out of the tournament beforehand. But I had a lot of matches under my belt which I think helped. Because I think on grass, particularly you have to do well and get a feeling for the grass court because the grass court season is that short.

Q. From all appearances, at least from what Kim has said, you are good to her and you certainly have shown a different side in that you have somebody like that in your life. Is that a side that we just don't get to see too much of because you are all about the intensity on the court and maybe there is this flip-side of the personality that we don't get a chance to view too much?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I think I am the first to admit I am very competitive. As soon as I step on the court I am intensity, I want to win. Like most of the players out here, I give 100% every time I step on the tennis court. I think a lot of people perceive that but then they will think that I don't know -- he's probably nasty off the court whatever, I am actually pretty shy. When I went to school back in Adelaide I was shy. I didn't argue with anyone, I had a lot of friends there. But it's sort of the same on the Tour. In the locker room I sort of keep to myself. I do my own thing. I have got a lot of friends at home that I keep in contact with. Obviously with Kim, that all helps as well. But she understands the pressures that I am going through and I understand what she's going through. So that side of it, I think is all sort of a bonus for both of us.

Q. As a shy guy growing up did you have the courage to ask a girl out?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Actually didn't have that many girlfriends. When Kim and I started it was -- I don't know, actually, it was a little bit of both. But I didn't have a lot of guts when it comes to that.

Q. Did you just kind of chat her up a little bit or just ask her out?

LLEYTON HEWITT: We were -- when was it -- 2000 Australian Open and I'd just won Adelaide and Sydney that year, and I arrived late and I was chatting with one of my mates who I played juniors with, Nathan, he was playing doubles at the Australian Open. He knew Kim through juniors. I was sitting together, I just sat down and that is how we got introduced. She asked me if I wanted to play mixed doubles. I think she knew we could get a wildcard. I couldn't because I committed to my sister about three months before that. That's how it started.

Q. She literally asked you out?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Well, she asked me to go on the tennis court. I don't know if it was because of my looks or anything to do with that.

LOL at his because of my looks comment :D

Anyways I am in Lleyki heaven :angel: I don't think he's ever talked this much about kim/their relationship in an interview :D AHH!
