He [Hewitt] is virtually the No 2 player in the world right now and at
the US Open if he’d had a little bit of luck and few things had gone his
way, he would have beaten Federer,”

Is this guy on drugs or something ? :rolleyes:
Has he heard from a guy called Rafa, nicknamed "DC/RG/3 MS at 19" ?

:lol: So, where's Nadal??? I think the clear N°2 right now is Nadal, he's won the same number of titles than Federer and he has won a Slam.

Yep, and we already had that a few months ago :
"I'm pleased with the fact that we've got, with the exception of Roger Federer, the best grass-court player in the world to lead things off for us," said Australian DC captain John Fitzgerald.

When will his entourage stop flattering Hewitt, when he's 150 in the world and plays challengers ? It's pretty pathetic, but they give us a good laugh... :lol:

agree.
One question to you, Rafa = Fed Killa, what will you do if Rog gets a positive record against Rafa in the future, which can happen... will you keep your name ?

Rafa may have had a better year, but consider this. If they played a series of matches on these surfaces, who would win

Hardcourt- Could go either way
Grass- Hewitt
Carpet- Hewitt
Clay- Nadal

You're like Rasheed, you like using "IF"... Nadal beat an in-form Agassi on hard in a MS finals + another tournament on hard, was 2 points away to beat Fed on hard (on a bad call), a situation Hewitt can only dream of these days... without mentioning the clay season... Hewitt is number 5 in the world, that seems tough to swallow for certain people...

Head-to-head results don't determine ranking, thank goodness. In any case, Nadal has been getting nearer and nearer to beating Hewitt on outdoor hardcourt and probably will next time they play.

I think RR was spoiled by the fact that his player won a set vs. Federer and didn't get bageled for once! ;)
Now if winning a set vs. Fed and not getting bageled makes you no2 in the world... well there are several no2 in tennis atm :)

Thanks for posting twice, but H2H records have never determined a ranking, otherwise Krajicek would be the best player ever !!!
As for GS results, they are great for Hewitt, and could have been even better if he didn't broke his ribs in the stairs at home because he was walking in his socks... too bad...

Maybe, maybe not. I'm sure people expected him to go farther at USO than he did. How many HC tournaments has Nadal won? Just one? At this point I don't consider him the favorite over any of the top 5 on HC.

Ah, don't you know it doesn't matter what he hasn't done, it's what he's going to do in the future.
Gimelstob can win many hardcourt slams. I wouldn't hold my breath though

Guys, Nadal has won one Masters series on HC + China Open + finals in another MS on HC... How many HC Masters Series has won Hewitt so far ? 0 ? Ah yes
