resurrecting dead threads from 6 years ago after hindsight just shows the amount of smug and arrogance in the Djokovic fan camp right now. Seriously, I think its obvious and a stupid question at this point.

It depends on which grass they play on. Hewitt has the upper hand on fast grass but Nole wins on today's very slow grass.

Please explain this 'underhand' you speak of..

It very simple: when facing a lob, player hits an overhead. When facing a dropshot, player hits an underhand.

So like I said on fast grass Hewitt has the underhand. Pay attention.
 
Not sure what people who think Hewitt would have an edge on fast grass are thinking exactly. I could see him maybe doing some things better vs certain players (eg maybe some of the 90s serve and volleyers or huge servers) than Djokovic on fast grass, but in a match vs each other there is no edge I can see. Djokovic is the better baseliner, ball striker, moves and defends as well or better, better server, and returns as well or better. Saying he passes better or might counter punch better in a certain way is pretty much irrelevant in this match up. And if you argue he returns better vs a huge server (debateable at best) that again is irrelevant in a match up between these two.

In defense of the voters here keep in mind Djokovic was only a 1 time Wimbledon Champion when this poll was started, just like Hewitt. And Djokovic's level in winning Wimbledon 2011 was lower than 2014/2015 and probably even 2018/2019 (which in itself was lower than 2014/2015).
I would not say 2011 waas lower than 2019. Lower than 2014/15 and maybe 2018.
