Hewitt's hoping to play doubles with Gooch at the Olympics. They'll probably play together at Queens and possibly Wimbledon, you would imagine.
"The Olympics are now out of my hands," he said.
"But given my record in Davis Cup and support of the ITF, I'd be disappointed if I didn't get a wildcard.
"Not only to play singles but also in doubles with 'Gooch' (Chris Guccione) given our performances in Davis Cup."
The Australian Olympic Committee and Tennis Australia are certain to lobby on Hewitt's behalf.
