Former world No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero, who retired from singles after his loss to Nicolas Almagro in Valencia, tells As sports daily in Spain that Lleyton Hewitt was the toughest player he ever faced, but Roger Federer was the player who impressed him the most.

“You feel that he can do anything and that you are missing that little bit,” said Ferrero, who won Roland Garros in 2003. “He is the only tennis player who has made me feel inferior.”

Federer and Ferrero also played at Wimbledon in 2007, and Ferrero lost the first set in a TB, but took the 2nd before losing in 4.

I remembered this match well; I think the match was a lot closer than the score suggested. Federer is just too good on grass for poor JCF to make an impression, :(

Hewitt was a tough cookie in 2000-2005, especially in 2001-2002.

I was very surprised to see JCF make the quarters of Wimbledon in 2009 after being gone for so long. That just shows how much of a warrior he is.
