I remember I used to hate Hewitt with a passion back in the old days when he was winning a lot and acting like a punk. Aside of the pushing game style he had, his loud 'come ons' bothered me, his language didn't appeal me and in general his whole histrionic fist-pumping behaviour pissed me off quite a bit. That racial incident with Blake in the USO and his refusal to recognize he didn't mean anything 'racial' also bothered me. In a nutshell, I guess he was the kind of player people were meant to hate and I was one of them. However, with time, I've come to like the bloke a little bit. He surely ain't my fave player but I have warmed up to him somewhat and I even want him to win most often than not at this point. From what I've seen, his attitude seems to have changed for the better, at least. Anyhow, what do you think about him now compared to your thoughts 8 or 9 years ago?
