I wouldn't give Hewitt the time of day if I were Federer and that's speaking as an Australian. I wouldn't be surprised if many of the other players felt the same way. There are plenty who love him because of his success and fighting spirit but there are a lot who found him a national embarrassment. He was one of the most unsportsmanlike players ever, there's aggressive and then there's just boorish. If it wasn't for his success he would be remembered like a Jeff Tarango nut job. He's trying to remake himself with a little more charm as his career comes to an end now and some media work beckons but the gulf in class between him and Pat Rafter left many people disappointed.
“There is no best. There is just the discussion of who is best. Federer, he will always be in the first part of such a discussion.” Rino Tommasi
