I have a question to ask, I love those Hewitt's celebration (of points), instead of a fist pump, he has kind of solutes by pointing fingers to his eye and forehead, is there a meaning in this?

You're not even good at trolling, you're not good at anything, just leave the forums.

Watson: Foul language, and supported by your own unique stupidity.

If only the ban hammer laid its head upon you instead.

In Hewitt's own admission, it was inspired by Mats Wilander.

The Vicht™ is a congratulatory hand-gesture created by former ATP touring pro Niclas Kroon who used it to celebrate his on-court exploits. Kroon started delivering “vichts” as a kid growing up in Sweden. The word “Vicht” is a bad pronunciation of the Swedish word that means “for sure”. Kroon used the Vicht™ throughout his career but it became visible to the most of the world when Mats Wilander used it repeatedly during the Australian open one year. Since then it has been unfurled by athletes from all over the globe from the grass courts of Wimbledon, the soccer fields "Down Under" and swimming pools in several countries.

Not so much inspired as stolen and then pounced on the trademark when Nic Kroon (who came up with it and used it a lot with Matts) mistakenly let it expire as his father (who handled his business affairs) died right around the time of expiry before getting to it.

As Kroon (I think taking it quite well) put it:
"The thing about using the word 'mate' in Australia ... it probably doesn't sound so good any more."

Classy man that Hewitt...

Thank you, Dino.

My personal interpretation, at least when Lleyton does it, runs something along the lines of,

"Why use one finger to point at the d*****bag when you can use all five?!"

For the record, I'm completely unschooled in sign language. I just know a turd when I see it.
