All of Hewitt's rivals expect Federer are GONE. Roddick, Ferrero, Safin, they retired they knew the writing was on the wall if they aren't winning no point in playing.
Venus Williams same thing, she's going to be knocked out by Sharapova if they meet in the third round. Why do it? Venus and Hewitt are multi millionaires they don't need the money. They are tarnishing their legacy.
Agree, Venus should be a doubles specialist with her sis and move on.
Having said that, when you walk on the court and blow another one of the top 150 players in the world off the court like Venus did last night, it's probably just enough to keep you going especially when you are probably hanging out with your sister the whole 2 weeks to root for her anyway.
