    Loved watching him dismantle big servers such as Raonic at the AO.
    Fun.

    Looks like he uses western grip for his forehand.

    Yup, which is probably why he had trouble generating power at times. Surprising that his favorite surfaces were low bouncing though..

    Yeah, I find it interesting as well. I think Hewiit hits the ball really clean and times it so well, and thought he would use some less extreme grip than that.

    I love this type of view in matches. tells a lot about the player and their game.

    Hewitt is about 20 pounds heavier now than his prime years. The movement and mobility was one of his top weapons. He's still a great player though.
