    Quite suprised to hear this. i have no idea what he is thinking. His tank has lots left for runinig for quite some time as a great player. IMHO, he still can be top 10 in years to come. He is just great and consistent. People will definitely miss him.

    sigh... to clear it up....

    Hewitt is not the one retiring. His opponent in the first round at this tournament was Wayne Ferreira. Ferreira announced his retirement sometime before this Open. Technically, this match was not Ferreira's retirement match (but it's his Grand Slam retirement match). Ferreira's last match will be South Africa's Davis Cup tie.

    Whatever the report was, it was mistaken--somehow misinterpreting the information as Hewitt retiring, but Ferreira is the one retiring. Hewitt's playing on, and his game has improved.

    Don't get your Dander up but thought Hewitt would give up tennis for Aussie Rules Football and to spend more time with Kim?

    Hewitt would not be very intimidating in aussie rules. If you fist pump and yell "come on!" in that game, you end up getting coloring books for Christmas for the rest of your life.
