Will Hewitt play Wimbledon this year?

Hasn't been seen for weeks. Anyone know what's up with him?

Says here he will play Queen's, but it's ages since he's played.

He is playing in the French, I'm not in the Hewitt circle but I don't believe he is fit. I expect the injury to be exasperated at the French but that probably wont stop him from playing Wimbledon... that said I could well be and hope I'm wrong and that he'll have a good run at the French and be 100% going into Queens and Wimbledon.

Whatever happens, i just hope he gets more luck with weather, remember that match with Canas last year that took days because of the rain?

From Monday: http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/080519/2/11bqe.html

"I thought it best to go to Paris and start my originally planned preparation, in the hope that the hip will be okay for me to compete," Hewitt said in a statement on his Web site (http://www.lleytonandbechewitt.com )

"I am being optimistic about playing the French and also the grasscourt season, especially Wimbledon.

"I've now just got to prepare as well as possible and hope the body holds up for me."

It's not that certain, I guess.
