Do you guys think Lleyton stands a good chance of retaining his Indian Wells title for a third year in a row? :bounce:

Hewitt Faces Hot Field

Two-time defending champion Lleyton Hewitt will face one of the hottest ATP Masters Series fields in history when he begins his quest for a third straight Pacific Life Open title in Indian Wells later this week. Hewitt, who is 14-1 on the year, will confront a field boasting 19 of the world's Top 20 players, including Carlos Moya (18-3) and INDESIT ATP 2004 Race leader Roger Federer (16-1), who won respective titles in Acapulco and Dubai last week.

Andre Agassi (8-2) is vying for a staggering 17th ATP Masters Series title and will be a contender along with Andy Roddick (17-4), 2003 finalist Gustavo Kuerten (14-4), Juan Carlos Ferrero (9-4), Dominik Hrbaty (17-3) and Australian Open finalist Marat Safin (7-4). Main draw play begins Friday.

Well I must say, "three-time defending champion" has a nice sound to it.

I think he has decent chances at repeating, he took the week off last week so he's well rested, and he doesn't have davis cup to think about so he's focused. The only people I can see him losing to are maybe federer or...you guessed it, Guillermo Coria. That's right, I said it.

I hope Guillermo makes it to at least the quarters, and I hope they televise it in Canada..

It would be fantastic if Lleyton were to three-peat at IW. It would really shut up the nay-sayers!

LOL. Not likely. The haters *must* hate. They feed off of it. ;)

True. But it will make them even less credible. ;)
