    I think Hewitt performed credibly against Nadal. Most people would have expected a straight setter.

    the commentators said that Hewitt liked that song and that some people even call him "rocky" or "rock." they said that he did that for French tv. they didn't show that whole clip, a bit chopped off from the beginning and end. so this is actually better than what they showed on espn2 :)

    also notice the poster of Rafa in the background!

    I thought it was pretty funny. Rocky rules. Although I'm sure Hewitt will be just as disappointed as the rest of us when he sees Rocky 6. :-|

    eheh... 6 already ?! :p
    they do a funny thing like this each evening in the daily RG report on France3... roger also did some funny things but he was not singing ;)
    i was really surprised to see lleyton (he looked more funny than what ppl usually say)... but not surprised about the song !
    yesterday it was julien benneteau who was singing... earlier in the week, i also remember clement and raftermani...... ummm i mean santoro ! ;)

    I posted most of them on my site (link below).

    It helps if you know a little French, but the set-up is that two guys, who know absolutely nothing about tennis, are working in the laundry service of the tournament and make wise-acre comments… The "best of clip" is pretty funny with a bunch of players coming in and dumping their laundry on them.

    The JHH and Clijsters one is pretty good too, with Clijsters lip-synching. There's one with Nadal arm wrestling one of the dudes, and one with Federer as a robot.

    Some funny sh|t.

    Rocky is Hewitt's fav movie of all time and he has the song almost permanently looped on his ipod type thing. I'm not one for player fan trivia normally but this one I know is true.

    that's what I thought! but in my eyes he became much nicer after he married his wife and got a baby with her! Seems much more relaxed !
