Well, i'm not going to post the entire OP but might as well start this thread just in case.

With going back to college...I'm not around much but Alex plays and here I am :D . Waiting for Baccanello & Rosset to hurry up. Could've sworn they were done but I look again and it is 3 ALL.

I'm just hoping that Alex does play. He's on the website's OP but not the OP in .pdf form :confused:

Come on Roger, get this finished!

Lleyton is excellent, but Federer is much much more than that. He's capable of winning on every surface and he did so many times. Only if Hewitt is playing at the very top of his level he might come close to Roger.
That's my opinion

Who does not want the money? But that's not the issue. Again, Hewitt is a hell of a player, especially when he is in a good shape. But he never went beyond the 4th round at the Australian Open and quarters at the French Open, has "only" two Majors (Grand Slams), comparing to Roger's four GSlams and he is only 23.
And don't forget how Australia won Davis Cup in 1999, who donated three points for Aussies? Philippoussis two and Woodies one. Lleyton lost both singles mathes.
And what happened a year after in another finals? Lleyton lost the decisive rubber.
And what happened a year after in another finals? Lleyton lost to Nicolas Escude and beat Grosjean. For number one player in the world that's not enough.
If Federer had player like Philippoussis or Rafter in the team Swiss would win Davis Cup five times in a row.

And what happened in the 2003 final? Lleyton won his single against JCF when it mattered and helped Australia to win the Davis Cup...

Ifs don't count in tennis... fact is that Switzerland's Davis Cup team is a one-man show and by far not the best team and if Switzerland wins Roger has to win two singles and the doubles. That works sometimes, but sometimes it doesn't and that's good because the better team should prevail and not the better individual player as it's a team(!) competition.

And Roger will soon catch that number; not sure where he stands at the moment. We know who's the better player, anyone with an ounce of intelligence, that is. Even when Hewitt was dominating, his years were NOTHING, compared to Federer's year this year.
