But it also depends on how Hewitt wants to be seen himself! I like you find it very hard to see how a former world number 1 and 2 time grand slam champion can be happy playong out a few years on tour like a journeyman it does not make much sense to me either!
Tendulkar has been far from woeful. He's still the highest ranked Test Batsmen from India. And in ODIs, he has as good a record as anybody other than Dhoni and Kohli. People in India love him more than ever and I can vouch for that. It's media-rubbish that he's losing his "respect" just so they can sell their "news".
