this is a load of cr*p ...

very young hewitt beat a returning from hiatus agassi in 98 ...

their LA match in 99 was a hewitt retirement at 5-4 , which really says nothing

their IW match in 2001 was a 3-setter, 6-4,3-6,6-4 ... this on slow HC, agassi was better on slow HC than on fast HC and vice versa for hewitt ...

again, doesn't really say that much tbh ...

you can't draw many conclusions based on these 3 matches ....

yes, problem is hewitt struggled in the first week, but by the time the semis and finals came around, he was in brilliant form, trouncing both kafelnikov and sampras

but then again even agassi was playing very well ... so it would have been a close match

this I agree with
