Interesting comments in Pete Sampras's book on his thoughts on Lleyton Hewitt = "He loved players who served and volleyed and tried to pressure him. Lleyton was one of the few guys who really could resist the onslaught of a high quality attacker. For a period I felt Lleyton might really dominate. His game translated well from surface to surface, but then a few things happened. For one Roger federer improved, and he figured Lleyton out cold. The game in general also improved while Lleyton was at the top. Guys were playing with a little more power, partly thanks to advances in racket technology, but fewer of them were playing into Hewitt's hands. Lleyton liked having a target, but in his era guys stopped coming to the net. Hewitt was a victim of his time" Sampras comments make a lot of sense if you look at Hewitt's head to head record against the top serve and volley players of the time. In brackets is the matches they played on grass, the surface usually dominated by the serve and volleyers. Hewitt 5-4 Sampras (2-1) Hewitt 9-1 Henman (4-0) Hewitt 3-1 Rafter (0-0) Hewitt 3-0 Ivanišević (3-0) Hewitt 3-1 Philippoussis (1-0) Hewitt 4-3 Rusedski (1-1) Does anyone else agree with Sampras's comments?? Is it fair to say Hewitt would have achieved more if he had played in another era where more players were coming to the net, like in the 1990s? Or to people think Lleyton would have had the same problems as Michael Chang had and would have been over-powered? Any thoughts?
