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.
