Myth: "Hewitt is lucky he won what he did in 01 to 03 before Roger started pwning him" Fact: Hewitt was simply a much better player in their early years, and it was certain devastating defeats that prompted Roger to get better. I'll point to 2 in particular. 2002 YEC Semis 2003 Davis Cup semis: L 7-5, 6-2, 6-7(4), 5-7, 1-6 2002 YEC Semis: L 5-7, 7-5, 5-7 Without these defeats Roger would not have had the impetus to improve his game and eventually start dominating Hewitt in 2004. So Hewitt earned everything he won before that point. it's interesting to note that just a couple of months after the Davis Cup debacle, Roger dominated his first Masters Cup.
