Strongly disagree with this. He handled the atmosphere much better than Roddick in their 5-set QF, and thrashed both Kafelnikov and Sampras (picking Sampras apart when he came to the net, passing him with ease - Hewitt would have done the exact same against Rafter...)
Actually I consider Hewitt's USO 2001 win to be very impressive.
