and...please...."real No. 2" my ***
Hewitt's getting 0wned out there in every extent of the word.
The only reason why Roddick (actual No. 2) has such a losing record against Federer is he's the only one who's consistently reaching the finals of most tournaments. I'm sure if there was a different player consistently meeting Fed at the finals, he'd have such a pathetic record too.
Final word: Certainly, if Hewitt hadn't constantly met Fed at grandslams, he definitely would be No. 2 but those are just ifs and buts. If Hewitt is to really get No.2, he has to earn it the hard way(certainly not from speculation and inane posts).
