Like many of the other Hewitt fans I`m greatly relieved to see him winning another title & a fairly decent one at that- especially this year the field at Queens was deep :cool: .

Winning Queens 2006 is a big drought breaker in many ways :devil: .
1.18-months since he last won any tourney [Sydney Jan 05] :eek:
2.4-years since he last won a grass-court tourney [Wimby Jul 02] :eek:
3.Breaks a run of losing FOUR successive finals [AO 05, IW-AMS 05, San Jose 06, Las Vages 06] :eek:
4.Beats two Top-10 players for the first time in the same tourney in 18-months [AO 05] :eek:
5.First Tourney win since he got Bec "Up the duff"[Pat Cash`s words :p ]
6.First Tourney win since he got married :angel:
7.First Tourney win since he became a father :angel:
8.First Tourney win since he changed sponsors from Nike to Yonex last year
9.First Tourney win in Europe in 2.5 years [Rotterdam Feb 04] :eek:
10.First time that he`s lost sets in 4-successive matches yet managed to guts it out to the end & find the elusive title :worship:

*Joins Federer as the only other New Ball to win 25 ATP-titles [quarter century] :worship: .

#All Hewitt needed was a shot of confidence, he`s still only 25-years old so there`s plenty more things for him to achieve in his career :) .

PS. Rocky Llegs win ensures that his record run of winning titles in successive years is extended to NINE [1998 Won Adelaide ---2006 Won Queens :worship: ]..>>So anyone who suggested that he burned out early has failed to realise his longevity & consistency :p .If Agassi manages to win a title this year he`ll join Hewitt with the run of nine-successive-years winning atleast one title :cool: .

Okie dokies I`ve said my piece->> NOW LET ROCKY LLEGS PHASE TWO begin :) ..He`s going to win something else big ;) ,i just pray it`ll be a Slam~ an AO title would do nicely :angel: !

Yeah mate, some people don`t realise how important this win is for Hewitt`s career. One of the things that makes me so happy this time is that he`s managed to keep his run of successive years winning a title alive. I reckon 9-Years in a row winning titles at this level is pretty impressiv :worship: ..BTW, Federer`s run of title winning began in 2001, so Lleyton`s got 3-more years than the current king of tennis [since Adelaide 1998] :)

Hewitt deserves to be happy and I hope he has a nice deep run at Wimbledon. I would love to see him and Roger in the final. He pushed Roger very hard at the USO last year so I want to see them play again on the big stage.

Nice post :yeah:

The only thing is, I think the thread title should be "Phase Three".

The way I see it, phase 1 started in 2000 when Lleyton cracked the top 10 and started posting the results, through 2001 an 2002 when he was #1 in the world winning slams.

Then phase 1 ended in 2003 when he took a leave of absence of sorts to regroup.

Phase 2 began in 2004 when after falling out of the top 10 he clawed his way back reaching the last 16 in australia, winning in Rotterdam, making the semis of Hamburg, quarters in the French and Wimbledon, winning back to back titles on American hardcourt in the summer and a final showing in Cincinnati and the U.S. Open. Then finished by making the TMC final and continued his run in 2005 making the Australian Open final and Indian Wells final before taking a hiatus due to injury then making the semis at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Then phase 2 ended in late 2005 with the birth of his child and his hiatus from the game.

Phase 3 actually began in RG I would say beating pretty good opposition on the clay and giving Nadal a good scrap before going down in 4 sets. Now he has built on that to win in Queens and will be a force to contend with during the Championships fortnight!

Probably Wimbledon finalist, so long as he's not in Rojah's half. Anyways, Hewitt' never really burnt out, he just found other things to care about for a while (suing the atp, knocking up ladies) :angel:

Material? Hewitt is already top 10 on grass, probably more than that.

He was labled as the #2 grass player by the commentators at Queens. It's too bad the grass season is so short. I'd rather see only two clay tournaments in the year and some 7 or 8 grass tourneys instead.

Lleyton will have to hope he stays out of Federer's half this year. I want to see Hewitt-Roddick over five sets on grass :) Although, come to think of it that could be a round of sixteen match couldn't it :eek:
