looking at lleytons ranking breakdown he really doesnt have many points to defend in the near future. From now until the end of april he has only 5 points to defend which is at Indian Wells. Thats with tournaments at Miami and Monte Carlo with nothing to defend. Then at the start of may he only as 5 points to defend at Italy.

So for the next 9 weeks he has a grand total of 10 points to defend with opportunities at 4 masters series events.

Look for him to climb.

I wonder if Lleyton is even playing to play the clay masters tournaments. I'd like to see him do better at IW and Miami though.

After Rome he has to defend 450 points in Hamburg, Pörtschach and Roland Garros. So even if he climbs it won't be for long.

You know, some people enjoy following a player from the beginning to the end of his career. I've "dealt with" a number of my favorite players leaving the game, so it's not a new concept to me that tennis players, even the very best, have seasons in their careers, and I fully accept that Lleyton is not going to be a force in the men's game again, but that doesn't mean I can't still enjoy him. I've been enjoying Jonas Bjorkman for a very long time now even though I've known he'll never be at the top of the game again.

I wish you were right coz i miss the days of Hewitt

but his game is out of date

he could barely hold serve v a mug like Benneteau on his fave surface, not good signs for the future

He hasn't had much points to defend the last few years compared to a notable few, so don't really expect anything to change. :shrug:

Little doubt that Hewitt will probably improve on that points haul, but I wouldn't be so confident that he can make too much of an impact. His best chance is obviously at TMS IW and Miami, where he can benefit from a few weaker draws in early matches (if he is lucky)...but I wouldn't be expecting him to do much on clay, and he is bound to lose many of his Hamburg points. :shrug:
