It depends on his draw but QFs could be a possiblilty if hes healthy.

I agree.

Btw, I accidentally put quarters/semis in the same category, so please say which one if you vote for that option.

Hewitt winning the French Open is only slightly more likely than Greece declaring war on China. Having said that, it is interesting that it takes a good player to take out Hewitt at the French, even though the surface does not fit his game.

Those ...evil Chinese, they have infiltrated the Greek market and destroyed many small businesses. They will be eliminated by the modern ...Spartans :armed:


:lol:


EDIT: as for Hewitt I will go with 3rd round (best case scenario)

Actually, I had in mind the Sparta movie and I wanted an example of a very low probability event that I had not used before :lol:

gotta see the draw. Could get bounced early, could make quarters.

With Llyeton's injury luck...he'll just about reach the locker room

3rd, maximum 4th round at an average draw, then he is toast :cool:

First round:)
He wouldnt make it through the qualies if he had to.
His chances to win RG are about as high as mine:cool:

Quarters at best. He can fight well on clay.

Depends on the draw, but he is actually a half decent claycourter but doesn't admit it.

Hewitt is not a shadow of what he ones was and back then he didn;t come further than quarters, so why now?!

I think first or second round, depends on the draw. He can lose to at least 60 guys in the draw on clay.

Quarter finals (semis if draw is kind)

Bobby

No further than third round.

i don't think he's as bad on clay as what your comment suggests!...:devil: he's been #1 for sometime and it's not fair to talk like that...don't forget that if last year he hadn't played RAFA,he would have even reached semis at least...:wavey:

Well, if Henman and Ljubicic can make the semi-final then why not Hewitt?

Burrow

Quarters Max, Realistically 3rd/4th Round.

Burrow

henman was playing excellent tennis and shouldve beaten Coria, ljubicic didnt have the toughest of draws to say the least.

As usual: depends on the draw. But quarters? Naaah, no free room for him

4th round again...

he'll probably make it back to the locker room after losing

Because it is unlikely both that he will get a draw like these two did and that he will make full use of the opportunity at this point in his career.

Lleyton always surprises everyone though. Like at the US Open last year, reaching the QF.

Let's hope he isn't injured! :lol: I can't vote this early, I'd need to see a draw. :p
