That’s false imo. Murray at his peak was too crafty and versatile. Hewitt was pretty crafty but he’s not outwitting guys like Djokovic on the court. Murray was also ripping backhands.Please, cut the BS.
Djokovic does almost everything better than Murray (except for the volleys and the slice, but Hewitt was better at those as well in addition to being an amazing retriever with great speed) but he still lost several matches to him when not peak or even just a bit off from peak. I think the same should apply to Hewitt whose peak level genuinely isn't that far off from Murray's (it's consistency and being less prone to injuries that puts Muzz ahead).
Think of Hewitt as Ferrer x 5, without the propensity to roll over immediately for the top guys (a habit Nishikori has as well with his 2-5000 record, come to think of it; he does have the USO 2014 win where he did play fairly well, but Djokovic was not good at all). Taking more sets in AO 2012 than him while post-injuries could say something at least slightly significant.
We are talking USO not career.Just say you don't like Djokovic or declare yourself USO2 and be done with it. I can't believe what I just read. More mentally strong than Djokovic? Beating prime Federer? When? I guess I missed that during his 0 for 15 run in Federer's peak and prime years. You're becoming a meme at this point.
