Lleyton's Grasscourt Season 2012
 
Lleyton will play:

Queens Club London
Hurlingham Tennis Classic Exhibition London
Wimbledon
Newport.


He is listed on the qualifying of Wimbledon, apparently decided not to risk it, but I think he must receive a wild card.

Yeah, I'd imagine he'll get the wild card for Wimbledon but it's good to see that he's not taking any chances. I'm assuming that he's also a lock for a wildcard into the olympics due to his Davis cup record but it'd be great to get some confirmation or at least a hint from the authorities.

I'm hoping that by Newport he's found his form and gets wins under his belt there so that he's ready to go deep in the Olympics even with a tough draw. If he gets his eye in he has no reason to fear the top guys in the early rounds there, but at Wimbledon, that bit earlier in his comeback, it would nice to get a kinder draw.

It'll be interesting to see who he plays doubles with at the olympics. Gooch had been mentioned early in the year but Tomic is the name he mentioned most recently -possibly because both Lleyton and Chris would need a wildcard. There is also mixed doubles at the olympics this year. The mixed isn't usually taken seriously on the tour but an olympic medal is an olympic medal regardless of the format so you'd imagine it'll be taken seriously in this event. Lleyton hasn't mentioned it yet though.

Twitter: Lleyton Hewitt and Marcos Baghdatis were both at The Queen's Club yesterday, getting some grass court time in.

Good luck Lley Lley :)

I'm afraid this will be a rather short thread though :lol:

Do you actually mean it when you wish him good luck (as the laughing face would suggest otherwise)? If not, you're welcome to waste your time hoping he loses every match he plays - a very productive past time.

If you actually want him to do well, I hope you're pleasantly surprised!

I didn't support him taking a WC at RG, but that doesn't mean I want him to do badly.

Grass is his surface, of course I want him to do well I'm just being realistic.

What's Hurlingham? Is that an ATP or just an exo?

I like Lleyton's draw. Hopefully he wins a few matches. Also good to see two old rivals/mates playing doubles together in their final years.
