Default Is Hewitt back? Raonic, Berdych, Del Potro destroyed in an hour.

I hope you got to see at least the last two matches he played at Kooyong.

Before the usual comments about it being an exho, regardless I haven't seen Rusty play that aggressive in years. Finally injury free, confident and willing to go for his shots.

Out gunning two of the biggest hitters Berdych and Del Potro back to back. Throw a win against Raonic before that and it's a pretty impressive week for a 31 year old.

I know it is early days, but should his body hold together he could be a real danger next week.

He has nothing left in the tank after giving his all against players in exhibition mode.

He didn't have to work that hard against Delpo... I'm sure he'll still have a little juice left to spice up Aussie hopes next week... Bernard can't have all the hype.

Won't look into his result against DelPo.... pretty clear the heat doesn't help Delpo's movement at all... Raonic has had a shit start to the season and Berdych is just in mug mode.

Hope so. I want him to make as better result as he can. Afterall, I will be happy if I can see big match between him and Tipsarevic at first day, night session.

I am sure he is in good form. As much as this tournament isn't important 3 easy wins wins are 3 easy wins.

One hopes so.

I still have doubts over whether he's fit for a big run in best of 5.

No.

Those exhibition matches are irrelevant. He'll lose to Tipsy in 1R.

Well, if he's back like Davydenko was back... ahem.

No, Hewitt can still produce some great tennis once in a while, but I don't believe this will happen.

He'll win if Roddick unretires.
For now, he'll lose to Tipsy, the better player and also a quitter.

He'll beat Tipsy but that's it.

That would be the extent of Lleyton's glorious streak.

happy to see Hewitt competitive, with Denko kinda back, Pony up there, when Rafa and Soder come back it will be a hell of a tour, with some young guns stepping up as well.

I love this game

I can see him beating Tipsarevic but not making a deep run at AO.
