Tough to not name Hewitt. Its gonna be like that now; it happened at Wimbledon, for example: if theres not a name strong enough to ROCK (yeah, in capitals, major rock ), its all Lleyton´s.
I´d be saying Guga if it wasnt for that bloody injury. He was on peak hard court form in Cincinnati, where he showed what he´s made of.
I´m also having high hopes for Moya. If he keeps that good form, there´s no reason why he can´t get good results.
Andy Roddick would be a name, wasnt for the fact that he´s facing some tough times.
Agassi can do some damage, and Federer too. Roger, btw, is still needing some more consistent results in a row, so thats a good chance.
Safin is on a wondeful season, and hard is his best, so Im still trusting he can have some very good tournaments.
By definition, hardcourts is the surface of returners. So it has to be one of Hewitt, Safin, Agassi. But deep inside I hope that we'll see the last of the best of another glorious returner - Kafelnikov.
